Bat-Credit Cards, a hot piece of movie memorabilia has hit the market!Earlier this week, the Texas-based auction house Heritage Auctions listed George Clooney’s infamous Batsuit from 1997’s superhero blockbuster Batman & Robin—the critically derided dud of a schlock-fest or a colorful, queer-coded camp classic, depending on who you ask. (We fall in the latter category, for the record.)Batman has turned plenty of looks over the years, but, for many, none are more iconic than the suits Clooney donned for his two spins in the Batmobile, Batman & Robin and its ’95 predecessor Batman Forever.
It has been affectionately dubbed “The Nipple Suit” for its rather prodigious latex areolae, and now it—and those nipples—could be yours!Well, the Nipple Suit could be yours if you have a cool $40k to drop, that is.
At least, that’s the starting bid for this hot item that’s anticipated to attract some avid cinema collectors with fat wallets.“This is easily the most famous–and infamous–Batman costume ever designed,” a representative of Heritage Auctions tells Variety, “as evidenced by the fact that all these years later, it continues to make headlines every time Tim Burton and George Clooney get asked about it.”Related: Beyond Batman: the secret LGBTQ stars of one of TV’s campiest showThe irony of the steep price tag here is that this nipple-forward Batsuit was largely derided by the public in the ’90s, as were the two films it was featured in, both directed by the late, gay filmmaker Joel Schumacher.
