Why is the Bat Signal from Batman V Superman up for Sale on eBay? Is it someone that worked on set, stole the prop, and braver than batman to put it up for sale on eBay? Is it some sort of charity drive to get the movie more publicity (not that it needs it)? No, it’s just a guy. Well, it’s a guy that let the production of Batman V Superman borrow his light and now that they’ve given it back he’s not skipping a beat.
The prop identified as a modified WWII searchlight Military Army Jeep is being sold for the low price of $65,000 dollars, which is surprisingly cheap considering that even if it wasn’t a prop from Batman V Superman it would still be worth $60,000 dollars. You also have to take into consideration that eBay will be taking a nice little cut from this sale so a $5,000 markup isn’t much (it’s like he’s giving the prop away)
I know what you’re thinking “How do I know that’s the real deal?” The seller stated he has the proper documentation to prove his spotlight was used in the production of Batman V Superman but was returned to him without the Batman logo on it. He managed to get himself a replica of the logo and stick it on his searchlight so people with Bruce Wayne levels of money could have a Bat Signal of their very own. Where would one even put a Bat Signal this big? Even if I had the money I would have no idea where to put it.
If you try to look up the listing you will no longer find up on eBay which leads me to believe that it has been sold to a very lucky fan or Warner Bros. told the seller to stop that.
Batman V Superman is set to premiere on March 25, 2016, and will set comic book’s most iconic heroes against each other in a battle to the death (at least until they decide to team up because the trailers showed a little too much).
