The Riddler's (Jim Carrey) cane from Joel Schumacher's superhero sequel Batman Forever. The Riddler twirled his iconic question-mark cane throughout the film, from the moment he teamed up with Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) to the sequence where he destroyed the Batcave, using the cane as a remote trigger for his powerful bombs.
Costume designers Bob Ringwood and Ingrid Ferrin drew inspiration from the original Dick Sprang comic artwork of the character, as well as the attire worn by Frank Gorshin as the Riddler in the 1960s Batman TV series. They added the question-mark cane, which would become a fixture in comic-book depictions of The Riddler soon after.
The gold-coloured cane is made of foam rubber with a metal core. It features the Riddler's signature question mark symbol as a handle, and a spiral pattern along its shaft. There are signs of wear to the gold finish and cracking, notably on the handle. The lot is accompanied by a Warner Bros. Pictures certificate of authenticity. Dimensions: 96 cm x 19 cm x 5 cm (37¾" x 7½" x 2")
Estimate: £3,000 - 5,000 M
