The Batman will officially hit theatres soon, and you can attend the premiere while brandishing this official batarang replica from Factory Entertainment. The replica is made from metal and comes with a display case and plaque.
Oh, it comes out during the Summer of 2022. Well, so much for my fantasy of going to a theatre dressed as Batman and throwing a batarang at the first jackass who takes a phone call during the movie. Maybe when the inevitable sequel comes out in 2024.
The batarang is $299.99 and can be pre-ordered with a one-time transaction or a payment plan spread over three payments.
We’re thrilled to be adding to our wide range of high-end movie prop replicas with a line of limited-edition replicas from the highly anticipated Warner Bros. and DC motion picture, The Batman. The first release, which is now available to pre-order, is the Batarang™. Our product developers were provided with digital assets of the Batarang™ prop directly from the production team of The Batman.
This allowed us to produce a full-size, screen-accurate metal replica featuring all of the fine detail of the original prop. Each replica features a hand-weathered finish replicating the on-screen appearance of the prop. To enhance and exhibit the beauty of the replica, we’ve included a museum quality presentation box with a piano-black finish and acrylic window, allowing collectors to showcase this exquisite piece to maximum effect.
Also included is a metal plaque with the unique limited-edition number and a certificate of authenticity. The Batarang™ is an essential piece of The Dark Knight’s arsenal, and we thought this would be the perfect prop replica to start with. We’re also well into development of full-size replicas of The Batman’s cowl and his grapple launcher, and fans can expect further announcements on those, along with offerings in our other collectibles lines, very soon.
Sometimes Factory Entertainment struggles with is giving customers a full grasp of what these replicas can do. Based on the images I’ve seen of The Batman‘s batsuit, the batarang has a hinge in the middle. However, FE doesn’t mention if this replica has any mechanical capabilities. Does it fold or move in any way, or is this a $299 static prop?
