Some domain name registrations may have revealed some clues about the future of the Batman franchise.
According to Superannuation, Warner Bros, the American entertainment company, has recently registered 15 domain names that relate to the masked hero.
Among them are arkhamcity.com, batmanashesofgotham.com and batmanriseofarkham.com, as well as others, such as stopmayorsharp.com, that point towards viral campaigns.
It has therefore been speculated that al least one of the domain names could be related to a sequel to the hit computer game Batman: Arkham Asylum.
The author of Superannuations said: "Given that it has been established that the sequel to Arkham Asylum takes place outside of Arkham Asylum, I don't think that it would make much sense to call it 'Arkham Asylum 2'.
"Also, despite not remembering this, the internet informs me that Arkham Warden Quincy - an original Arkham Asylum character - was running for mayor of Gotham in the first game, so I think it wouldn't be a leap to assume these registrations are related to the sequel."
Many domain names are now registered well in advance of the release of films and games in order to ensure they can be promoted properly.
