Michael Keaton, who played Batman in the 1989 and 1992 Tim Burton films Batman and Batman Return, while promoting his recent successful film Birdman, was asked if he felt any jealously over others wearing the Batman cape and cowl. This question comes after the wake of Christian Bale recently admitting to being jealous of Ben Affleck’s casting of Batman for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
This is what Michael Keaton had this to say in responds:
“No. Do you know why? Because I’m Batman. I’m very secure in that.”
We agree with him, he is always will be our Batman!
