With Matt Reeve The Batman ushering in a new era for the caped crusader, there’s never been a better time to find superhero buy recommendations.
Even without the release of the new movie, Batman is up there with Superman as one of DC Comics’ most iconic legends of all time – not only is the character a hit in the collectibles arena, especially on sites like Ebay (like this one autographed Adam West Batman movie poster), the vigilante took over everything from clothes and accessories to the quick responses of the Ring doorbell.
Whether you’re a die-hard comic book fan or just a movie buff with opinions on Affleck’s Pattinson vs. Wayne, we’ve rounded up 10 pieces of limited-edition merch that feature Batman in all its dark, gritty, and sometimes campy glory. You should also rush and shop quickly – many items on our list are in high demand and you’ll want to buy them before they sell out.
1. The Batman x Fossil Capsule
“Cue the suspenseful music,” as Fossil says of their latest limited-edition capsule collection. The Batman x Fossil is a 10-piece line of collectible watches, jewelry and leather goods inspired by the iconic combination of Batman and the enigmatic super-villain The Riddler. We love the matte black The Batman watch, with its 42mm black ion-plated stainless steel case and bright green light on all hour markers. You’ll also be ready for any crime-fighting mission with the leather collection, especially The Batman fanny pack, which can change ‘identity’ and become a scarf.
2. EleVen “The Batman” Collection
One of DC Comics’ series of collaborations and special releases to honor the return of the vigilante for The Batman was “The Batman” by Venus Williams Eleven-Collection. If you’re looking for more subtle (and sweat-proof) products, consider these activewear items such as the “Revenge” stylish leggings and sporting goods like hoodies, joggers and a “Fighter” tank top.
This ribbed fabric tank top is breathable and stretchy enough for any workout (or crimefighting), including “The Batman” logo on the racerback straps, and is specially designed to be moisture wicking and antimicrobial.
3. The Art of the Batman
Sure, there are plenty of baddies kicking around and car chases in the Batmobile, but those who are suckers for the production design of the Batman movies will want The art of Batman Official James Field behind-the-scenes art book.
You’ll get a glimpse into the production process of creating a unique black-inspired world for the The Batman through character, vehicle and gadget designs, background paintings, original commentary and interviews with the filmmakers, cast and production designers. Pre-order it now before April 19.
4. PUMA x BATMAN Hoodie
Step into the night with this new PUMA x BATMAN Hoodie, created to capture the essence of the new The Batman film with “moody colors and dramatic design elements” inspired by, who else? As well as showcasing a stylish image of the Batmobile, the 100% cotton hoodie’s comfortable lining is perfect for hanging out in Gotham City. If you want something a bit more neutral then you can also skip for the other hoodie in the collection which features a smooth black bat signal.
5. McFarlane Toys The Batman Resin Statue
The world’s greatest detective can stalk your storefront with this intricate figure based on Robert Pattinson’s costume from The Batman movie. The highly detailed resin statue is crafted in 1:6 scale and features decorative and sculpting details, including a movable cape. For all collectors, you can present the statue in a DC Direct-themed collector’s box, with the logo serving as the base of the statue.
6. Batman MeUndies Lounge Pants
Even crime fighters need a day off, and these lounge pants from MeUndies are the sweetest way for any superhero to kick back in comfort. Decked out in the Batman designs of yesteryear, fans of the original comics will appreciate having a colorful Batman rep. They’ll also appreciate the pants’ super soft MicroModal fabric, made from breathable beech wood fibers and woven into a comfortable yarn material.
7. LEGO DC Batman: Batman and Selina Kyle
While it’s a treat to get into larger and more complex collectible minifigures, a more accessible way to build your Batman collection is with exclusive LEGO sets. This one puts you in the middle of the fast-paced double-bike chase action between Selina Kyle and Batman in The Batman movie. The set includes digital instructions on how to assemble the pieces with two minifigures and multiple accessories, plus a glow-in-the-dark Batsignal.
8. Batman Hero House of Wake Perfume
Besides sweat and grime, it seems like Gotham’s biggest hero’s signature scent has base notes of sandalwood, musky patchouli, moss, and warm vanilla. The luxury high perfumery House of Sillage has released a limited edition collection in collaboration with The Batman film, including perfume, candle and lipstick available at Saks Fifth Avenue and online. Drawing on Bruce Wayne’s refined side of the Batman personality, the iconic Bat Motifs enamel scent in hand-polished French glass, topped with Swarovski crystals.
