Up until about one decade ago, Michael Keaton was known as being the No. 1 Batman actor of all time (which is kind of easy to say since his only competition consisted of George Clooney and Val Kilmer). It has been over 20 years since he last wore a hero costume on screen – so many people may have assumed that Michael Keaton would never attempt to play a costumed hero on the big screen ever again. Well….they were wrong.
As you can see from this mind-bending movie trailer that was just released by FOX Searchlight, Michael Keaton is coming to the screen as a bird instead of a bat — BIRDMAN. The trailer shows that this movie is going to be unlike any other hero movie that you have seen before in many ways – adding more of a creative and abstract approach to the film-making process overall. What do you think? Did Michael Keaton make the right decision to join this ensemble cast?
