We all have been amazed and astounded by the recent early release of the [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) teaser trailer. To be completely honest, my mind has officially been blown by the amount of anticipation and excitement that Zack Snyder & his team have been able to stuff into this 2 minute trailer.

If you have not seen the trailer yet, here it is. Enjoy.

Now, wipe that drool off of your mouth and lets get to it.

After I watched it about 75 times, I had to take a step back and soak it up. Once I came back down to reality from nerd land, I decided to scout this trailer for any potential easter eggs. One of the most fascinating potential easter eggs that I found was nothing but a spray painted question mark. To the average reader/viewer, this may sound like a long shot or a silly attempt at an article, but to the trained Batman fan's eye, this is a golden opportunity for a juicy discussion topic.

At the 1:20 mark in the trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, we see Batman in some sort of run down old building holding something in his hand. While everyone else is worrying about what he is holding, I notice something strange spray painted on the column to the left. A question mark.

See it? ........ Let me help you a little.

Now you see it?

Yep thats right. A question mark. You may be asking yourself the same thing I did right now. "Its just a freaking question mark. What is so interesting about that?"

Im glad you asked. ;)

I took the liberty of doing a little Riddler symbol research. Here is what I found......

This specific form of question mark seems to draw inspiration from the Batman Forever and Arkham City Riddler symbol. Call me crazy but I am seeing a major possibility.

I may be reaching far for this next statement, but it almost looks as if it is some sort of greenish black versus the other graffiti being solid black. That one could just be my eyes playing tricks on me.

Anywho, there you have it ladies and gentlemen. My theory of the Riddler being brought into the DC Cinematic Universe. Is Zack just messing with us, or do you think this could be a possibility?

I think it is highly possible in the Batman solo film that we will see in the coming years. The Riddler is a HIGHLY underused character who, I think, deserves his spot in the DC Cinematic Universe. If you don't agree, let me know your opinion in the comments below.

Now......If he were to come to the DC Cinematic Universe, who would play the role of this iconic DC Super Villain?
