Dark Knight Rises, The

544 - Live Auction 2016 - Batman's (Christian Bale) Cowl

Stock #66941

Batman's Batsuit cowl from the action films The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan. Bruce Wayne(Christian Bale) wore his redesigned cowl as part of his new Batsuit, used in The Dark Knight in his hunt for the Joker (Heath Ledger) and Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), and in The Dark Knight Rises in his battle against Bane (Tom Hardy) and the League of Shadows.

Designed by Lindy Hemming and created by costume supervisor Graham Churchyard and his team, the refined Batsuit incorporated a number of innovations to allow Batman to move and fight with increased agility, the most significant of which was its improved cowl. The updated design separated the headpiece from the neck, radically improving the movements of performers wearing the suit. Hemming received a BAFTA Award®-nomination for her contribution to The Dark Knight.

The cowl, marked 'R10' within, is made of urethane and features holes for the eyes, nose and mouth, which have been worn down to provide extra comfort and grip during wear. Defined lines and a menacing scowl are sculpted into the brow and cheeks of the piece, to imbue it with a dread-inducing look. The piece displays some light wear to the urethane from use and age, with minor cracking at the back of the collar.

The piece is supplied with its original wooden production stand and protective case. Dimensions (displayed): 29 cm x 32 cm x 36 cm (11 ½" x 12 ¾" x 14 ¼")
