Now we know what the Joker will look like in ‘Suicide Squad’ this summer

Suicide Squad is another movie comic book fans should have on their list for next year. Supposed to launch in August 2016, the film brings together a band of villains from various DC titles, including Batman’s most popular bad guy, the Joker.

The Centives economics blog, run by econ students at Lehigh University, has been trying to figure out what it might cost for a real-life Wayne to run around in a giant bat costume every year, and has concluded that he probably pays $2.8 million annually, including $2 million for graphite helmets, $262,800 for Alfred’s salary and $74,880 a year for personal training, among other things.
