One of the riddles buried within Arkham Asylum has been solved. Warner Bros. has released a deleted scene from The Batman, director Matt Reeves’ take on the venerable superhero franchise. In the five-minute-long segment, viewers can see Barry Keoghan’s take on the Joker, a character only hinted at in The Batman. With his Keith Flint haircut and physically marred head, Keoghan’s Joker is a nightmarish figure, a far cry from the jolly Joker portrayed by Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s 1989 film. It’s The Silence of the Bats in this scene as Keoghan faces off with Robert Pattinson’s Detective Batman. Check it out below.
