The past couple of weeks saw rumours surfacing about the upcoming The Batman movie, which is expected to be released next year. First, there was a report that Warner Bros was planning to let Ben Affleck go from the planned trilogy. What followed next was Affleck himself responding to those rumours, saying he would be “so thrilled to do [the role]” again. All we know at this juncture is that the actor has stepped down from his position as the film’s director, so the only thing to do next is to keep our eyes peeled for confirmation about Affleck’s starring in the titular role, and when exactly the movie will be released.
While we all wait in eager anticipation, fans of the Dark Knight have something else they can obsess over for now: Royal Selangor’s newly released, limited edition Batman figurine. Last month, Warner Bros Consumer Products collaborated with the renowned Malaysian pewter manufacturer and retailer to produce a Batman figurine, which is limited to only 3,000 units for global distribution. This was launched at last month’s San Diego Comic Con.
Royal Selangor is no stranger to immortalising prominent movie characters in pewter. Founded in 1885, the homegrown company has also brought to being other iconic characters such as Winnie the Pooh, Captain America, and Luke Skywalker from Star Wars. Here are 5 of our favourites, which we would love to adorn our homes and office spaces with.
All figurines are available at all Royal Selangor outlets in Malaysia.
