LOS ANGELES — Police are investigating the disappearance of an expensive "Iron Man" suit from a Los Angeles movie prop storage facility.

Los Angeles police Officer Christopher No said Wednesday a police report was filed Tuesday and that the suit's estimated value is $325,000.

KCBS-TV first reported the investigation and says the crimson-and-gold costume was used in the 2008 " Iron Man " film, which starred Robert Downey Jr .

The movie, which raked in $585 million worldwide, was the first installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which continued most recently with the release of the third Avengers movie, " Avengers: Infinity War ."
