How Much Does It Really Cost To Be Batman?

It’s been done before, but hey, scientific propositions need repeated testing, don’t they? Movieclips Trailers analysed the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy and compared Batman’s gear to current market prices to come up with the definitive price it would take to be the dark knight. The final tally? $US79,237,480.98. Not too expensive for a billionaire, right?

Who needs to buy a yacht or a newspaper when you can turn yourself into Batman? The truth is, the bulk of the cost of being Batman is in the Batwing, the closest thing in real life would be the US Marine V-22 Osprey which runs for about $US60 million. Cut that out and you have a very reasonable 20 million dollar superhero.

As much money as Bruce Wayne has though, it’s nice to see he makes his own DIY Batarangs. That doesn’t cost him more than $US45 in sheet metal. [Movieclips Trailers]
