I asked this yesterday but my thread didn't show up for some reason
 
it's probably comparable to the spiderman suit. Weren't a few of those stolen during production of the first film... and i think they mentioned a price... does anybody remember?
 
I wonder if its as expensive as batmans movie-price suit... $300,000
 
^ I think it is more are you forgetting this is SUPERMAN!!!
 
Well if you ignore the collectible value. I would say it probably cost in the low hundred thousands. The Begins costume cost that much more because sculpting
was involved. I think less work certainly goes into developing something that is bascially a spandex suit. However the materials used would jack the price up.
 
Well from a deverlopment point of view I am sure it was expensive. They spent alot of tme playing with new fabrics and they even created a few to try with the suit.

Thats an expensive process to go through.
 
The codpiece alone must have cost a cool hundred grand from all the material used to produce such a massive piece of "equipment".

Too bad it doesn't look it. It's a decent suit at best.
 
Didnt someone, maybe Singer, say that ripping a suit was like driving a Ferrari off a bridge?

anyone remember that
 
imagine what that suit would cost in 'fake-life.' Lois was a fool to return that cape in S4.

I don't get it. Or maybe it's just so simple and I'm thinking something else.
 
ferrari's are usually 150,000+ easily...so you rip the suit, you obviously can't sew it, cuz the seams will show up on the scre---oh wait :rolleyes:

Basically, he's saying that each suits cost north of $150 K like cyclone pointed out, so when you rip one, you can't really mend it, so it's like completely losing 150 grand.
 
$85,000 a piece, they dont have the screen printing and web and spider add on's like the Spider-man suit. Im just happy he's not all sculpted muscle, he'll actually be able to move.
 
^^ Ok, thanks. Yeah, that's what I thought it meant but I didn't know these suits were that damn expensive. Holy jeez. Not exactly something you'd wear to cut the grass in or change your oil.
 
I thought I remember reading 25 or 50K each.....
 
it must be cheaper than the batman and spiderman suits

Looks more expensive than the pile of foam rubber people call the Batman Begins suit :o
