Michael Keaton’s Batsuit from ‘Batman Returns’ sold at auction for over $41,000

Michael Keaton’s Batsuit from Batman Returns is over 25 years old, but apparently it’s still in really good condition.

The Batman Returns costume was just sold on the Nate D. Sanders auction website for $41,250. Bidding began at $33,000. The winner will receive the Batsuit mounted on a Michael Keaton dummy.

Michael Keaton’s Batsuit from Tim Burton’s hit superhero film ”Batman Returns”, which smashed box office records when it opened in 1992. Body of batsuit is in formed black rubber segments covered by the textured integral cape and cowl style mask, with long black leather gloves, boots and gold plastic belt and bat symbol. Original parts of the costume worn in the film are the cowl, cape and body; the gloves, belt, insignia and shoes are replicas for the display. Costume comes displayed dramatically on a mannequin with chiseled face of Keaton, mounted to a 2′ square gray-white base with ”BATMAN RETURNS” at front center. Batsuit measures 6’5” tall and approximately 27” at the widest point of the cape. Some glue present where cape and cowl meet, overall very good condition.
