An awesome new faux Dark Knight trailer titled Batman: Enigma has glided past our ever-vigilant eyes, and it's pretty sweet, starring Casey Affleck, the Batfleck's little brother, as Gotham's prime puzzler, The Riddler.

Directed by YouTuber Stryder HD, it imagines a universe where Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy becomes a Quadrilogy and pays careful attention to the similar tone and style seen in those Christian Bale Bat flicks. In this imagined extension, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has donned the Robin outfit and Lucius Fox is helping Bale's Bruce Wayne get back in the game against a new riddle-dropping supervillain.

Watching this inspired fan trailer makes me feel a little nostalgic for the Nolan movies, which now seem so long ago upon the wave of Zack Snyder's evil hatchlings. Watch for Affleck's scenes yanked from a few of his movies like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Gone Baby Gone, all nicely threaded into this fictional teaser.

Take a look and tell us if you'd pay honest money to see Casey Affleck in the question mark suit causing chaos in Gotham City.
