Michael Keaton Breaks Down Iconic Batman Role


GQ has this cool video series where they interview actors and have them break down their most iconic roles.  Now, it’s Michael Keaton’s turn to talk about his films such as BEETLEJUICE, MR. MOM, BIRDMAN, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, NIGHT SHIFT, and this small film he did back in 1989 called BATMAN…


Of course, Keaton returned (see what I did there) to play Batman again in 1992’s BATMAN RETURNS and recently reprised the role in 2023’s THE FLASH.  Sadly, it looks like Keaton’s Batman days are over — though he recently said “you never know” — but with DC Studio’s ELSWORLDS banner, I’m still holding out hope of seeing him return 1 more time in an adaptation of BATMAN BEYOND or THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
