Personally, I would use a print-out of your favourite image as a template, and cut one from plywood. Dremel the wing-edges to taste, spray with metallic paint, wash and dry-brush with black paint to add texture, then seal with matt varnish. It won't have the "heft" of a metal batarang, but you can make a lot more for the same cash outlay.

witch batarang do you want. and do you want it to come back or are you talking about the new batman movies IE dark night because the new ones are more like ninja stars than a boomerang. if so you can get the pattern from a cheap toy such as http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0018K2LC6/ref=asc_df_B0018K2LC6698475?smid=A3OOXCERBCG0WQ&tag=shopzilla_rev_76-20&linkCode=asn just an example. and you can get steel from the hardware store or get tooling steel from the internet and follow this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Build-a-Knife/ but just use the pattern you get from the toy. pay attention to step 5 its what determines whether your new toy explodes on impact or sticks in.

The best way? A laser cutter. Create (or find) a vector image and send it over to Ponoko, they can cut it out of steel for you.
