First Look At BIRDMAN Costume! Michael Keaton Stalked By Iconic Superhero (Photos & Video)

Michael Keaton ("Batman") was recently spotted filming his new movie, Birdman, in New York. What's interesting is that Keaton was being closely followed by a man wearing a flashy superhero costume.

Oblivious: The 61-year-old star looks as though he hasn't noticed the masked crusader behind him

Is it a bird... Is it a ...actually, it's kind of a bird: The film features a superhero who takes inspiration from birds

Bird brain? Micheal's character - in a nod to his real life time as Batman - is said to have portrayed this latest hero, suggesting the scene may involve Birdman appearing as a figment of his imagination

PLOT - Birdman is a dark comedy that follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story in a bid to reclaim past glory. However, the play’s egotistical leading man threatens to throw everything down the tubes.

BIRDMAN is being directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu ("21 Grams"). He also wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo. The cast includes: Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Keaton ("Batman Returns").

Is this a Condorman remake?
PLUSH - 5/31/2013, 1:21 PM
Oeh, I like the wings
Giznad - 5/31/2013, 1:21 PM
@marcvader1, I'm pretty sure he's supposed to look rough for the film. I thought he looked just fine in The Other Guys.

Vinny1138 - 5/31/2013, 1:23 PM

I don't know what think about the costume; it's cheesy but I kinda like it.

Like, Harvey Birdman attorney at law?
IronLantern79 - 5/31/2013, 1:26 PM
I saw this and I was thinking..."A Harvey Birdman movie!!?? Awesome!" Then I opened it and read....and looked...then I was like..."What the hell happened to Micheal Keaton?"
rbfn04 - 5/31/2013, 1:26 PM
Is that Birdman, Birdman? Harvey attorney at law Birdman?
Screwger - 5/31/2013, 1:27 PM
WTF with the plot? I tought he plays a former superhero not Mandarin!
blvdnoise - 5/31/2013, 2:00 PM
Is that BIRDMAN, Birdman?? or is this something else???
MrStayPuft - 5/31/2013, 2:03 PM
How bout no
TheMadman - 5/31/2013, 2:04 PM
That actually.. the scales resemble Cap's from the comics. I like it but now I see why they won't go that route.
rbfn04 - 5/31/2013, 2:06 PM
If that's Harvey Birdman the costume is terrible! If it's a wannabe hero that fails and not Birdman it's cool. If it's a serious Birdman but not THE Birdman, Chris Birdman Andersen's tattoos look bettter

Where's Dyno-Mutt?
sparkadv - 5/31/2013, 2:11 PM
It looks great for what it is!! This costume designer should've done Captain America's on Avengers! These feathers almost look like scales…The colors are great and the helmet/mask is not as lame!
Talon1024 - 5/31/2013, 2:15 PM where is Dynomutt??
Franshu - 5/31/2013, 2:16 PM
The hell happened to Keaton? Meth. Not even once.
ProfOJ - 5/31/2013, 2:22 PM
Sweet!....that will be fun for photoshopping jla group jonny dangerously looks rough...but hey thats what happens when you dont go under the knife....way more respect from me though.
sameoldthing - 5/31/2013, 2:25 PM
That costume does have a BLUE FALCON vibe.
Hope this film is interesting,Keaton deserves a good movie.
Triptheorist - 5/31/2013, 2:26 PM
I need a Harvey Birdman:Attorney at Law movie, ASAP!
DioFoRio - 5/31/2013, 2:34 PM
looks sweet for a made up costume! Hope Keaton starts a comeback...he sortta just disappeared for a while there. What was that flick with him and Rae Dawn Chong and riggin the lottery?
ChaosLord - 5/31/2013, 2:35 PM
Yeah I was thinking BIRRRRD MAAAN from Hannah Barbara - the plot seems silly enough, but will probably wait for Netflix
Phlegmbot - 5/31/2013, 2:40 PM

Better than anything I've seen out of the Superman movie.

It's Birdman meets Blue Falcon (meets Condorman).

I like it!

Michael Keaton is Frank Woods

Cap's uniform should've had scales… It should had been made of a mix of Kevlar and Adamantium. That was the only downer in the Avengers.. No scales and really bad looking helmet.
Jollem - 5/31/2013, 2:57 PM
cap should have looked like cap

keaton should play some really evil, nasty bad guy in a movie
koolaidbag - 5/31/2013, 3:10 PM
wow, guys, this isn't even a superhero movie, this is about michael keaton trying to make a play starring the superhero he used to play on!!!!!!!
r4dagast - 5/31/2013, 3:17 PM
You guys do realize Michael Keaton is in his 60s now right? May be older and wrinklier but still a fine actor and look forward to seeing him in more roles!
NinjaBaby - 5/31/2013, 3:20 PM
Wow @koolaidbag if thats true thats lame. I hope this is Harvey Birdman attorney at law that'd be funny
SamWinchester - 5/31/2013, 3:22 PM
