The Batman | Questions and Answers
Did Riddler know Bruce Wayne is Batman?
Chris answer this question in extensive detail here.
Who killed Bruce Wayne’s parents?
This question is frustrating because there is no clear and concrete answer provided by the movie—something that was likely done on purpose to set up Bruce’s emotional journey in the sequel. Falcone suggests that his rival crime lord Salvatore Maroni ordered the hit, while Alfred believes Falcone was responsible. This air of secrecy and implication hovers over the end of the film. Because of it, we can assume Maroni will be a character in the next film and provide more clues for Bruce.
By the end of The Batman, finding out who killed Bruce’s parents almost doesn’t matter. In his journey in the film, Bruce finds balance in his life and learns to curtail his taste for vengeance and focus on improving the city by becoming a symbol of hope. He ends the movie on an uplifting note, ready to become a new man. The mystery surrounding his parents could draw him back to the dark side in the sequel, however—there will be a cloud of mistrust that looms over Bruce as he tries to find balance in his life. That’s likely why we don’t receive a definitive answer to this question in The Batman.
