How Much Money Would it Cost to be Captain America?

By Casey Chan on at

Want to be an All-American superhero with a heart of gold? You only need a little under $55 million (around £33 million), a time traveling device to send you back to the 1940s, a good vibranium source and a healthy budget for food. Movieclips Trailers analysed the total cost of being Captain America and after accounting for inflation came up with this number: $54,977,922.05 (£33,096,030.29).

That's cheaper than being Batman! And could actually be even cheaper if ol' Cap'n used a different shield. His vibranium shield alone costs $54,431,100 (£32,766,749.58) to make. That puts the rest of the cost of being Captain America at slightly less then £301,000 . Totally reasonable! Watch the calculations below:
