Michael Keaton had huge success as Batman in the late 80s and early 90s, and now he’s kind of returning to the superhero fold, playing an actor best known for playing a famed comic book figure in Birdman.
The Alejandro González Iñárritu movie also stars Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Zach Galifianakis, and from the evidence of this first trailer, it’s gonna be a good one.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.’
The movie is out this autumn.
