A private collector bought a batsuit worn by Christian Bale in “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” for £192,000 ($250,000 or P12,120,125).
Another bidder snagged the batpod – the heavily armed motorcycle used by Batman as he battled the Joker and Bane in two “Dark Knight” movies – for £312,000. And since crime doesn’t pay, Bane’s costume sold for £96,000.
The costume was up for sale as part of an auction organized by The Prop Store, a UK memorabilia company. The offering of more than 500 costumes, props and other pieces of movie history brought in more than £1.5 million, auctioneers said. (Bloomberg)
