The Cost of Being Batman


Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to be Batman? As most of you could imagine the training, the tech, his estate and everything else would cost an astronomical amount of money.

Thankfully the guys at MoneySupermarket.com have done the required research, allowing us to put a number on the $ cost of being the caped crusader and surprisingly under $1 Billion. This does not include the amount of money Wayne Enterprises is worth, but that would make this exercise into Scrooge McDuck levels of crazy levels of accounting.

Below is an image which neatly summarises the total costs, we will talk about these more below.  And for those that need to know the version of Batman being considered is the version from the "Dark Night Trilogy", which was directed by Christopher Nolan.

The total cost of being Batman is $682,450,750, which means that there is a few people out there which could conceivably become the legend himself. Could any of you guys imagine Bill Gates could become the Dark Knight, but personally I could see Russia's Vladimir Putin as a more likely candidate. 

Batman's Garage takes on a great deal of the total cost, with the Bat Mobile "The Tumbler" estimated to cost around $18,000,000, "The Bat" or the "Bat Wing" costing around $60,000,000 and the "Batpod"/"Bat Cycle" costing $1,500,000. In total the Garage costs $79,500,000, an mount of money which most of us cannot even imagine.

The Bulk of the cost comes from Wayne Manor, which would cost $37,000 per year to maintain, and would cost around $600,000,000 to rebuild after it was burned down in the first movie. This cost also includes the Bat Cave.
