Christopher Reeve Superman

The outfit also appeared in Superman II and III

Reeve refused to wear a muscle suit and spent months working on his body prior to filming.

A complete Superman outfit sported by George Reeves in the 50s TV series auctioned for $230,400 in 2015 – suggesting we could see a strong price for the present garment.

A Batman outfit Michael Keaton wore in 1992's Batman Returns is also on offer at the January 26-ending auction.

It has a $35,000 start price.
