The latest trailer for The Batmanbrought back a slew of beloved characters. Catwoman, The Riddler, The Penguin, Jim Gordon, and of course Bruce Wayne himself all made appearances. Three villains are already a formidable threat for Batman during his second year of crime-fighting, but careful analysis of the trailer exposes two more possible adversaries may be hiding right under our noses.
Redditor Poundofcure first highlighted one of the most confusing aspects of the trailer: the gang of young men in ghoulish makeup, including one whose makeup only covers half his face. According to the theory, this is a gang of minions to either False Face or the Penguin. The latter is most probable, as False Face hasn’t even been rumored to appear in The Batman.
The person with the half-face makeup is theorized to be either a prospect or initiate into the group, and the events shown in the trailer merely an initiation ritual. It seems pretty par for the course for a Batman movie, but this is where things get interesting.
