Flying high: Michael Keaton was seen floating above Times Square in New York City on Sunday during filming for his new movie Birdman

Brave man: The 61-year-old chose to do his own stunt and was suspended with the aid of two thick wires

Not messing around: The actor had an intense look of concentration on his face while he held his arms have raised up as if to propel himself forward

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").

Christian Bale's still my favorite Batman (unless you can count Kevin Conroy). Keaton was great as Bats, but I never cared for his Bruce Wayne.

@grif, I think they're just riffing on the fact that New York City used to be called Gotham. I could be wrong though.

wow, someone gave a job to michael keaton. good for him.

Wasn't Bob Kane's ORIGINAL concept of Batman a character called "Birdman"? lol
AztecaAguilar04 - 5/27/2013, 10:52 AM
Michael Keaton was good with Tim Burton and His style Of Bats. And Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne/Batman was perfect for Nolan's Vision. Both did an amazing job!

grif - cause Gotham IS one of the many nicknames for NYC.
nailbiter111 - 5/27/2013, 11:47 AM
ah doi

Can we get real Bird Man, Blue Falcon and Space Ghost movies? I'd settle for a Saturday Morning Cartoon again!

I know WB are planning on doing a DCCU, but wouldn't it be friggin' awesome to get Keaton back for a Dark Knight Returns movie? And even Nicholson and Tommy Lee Jones back for Joker and Two-Face. I know Tommy Lee Jones was horrible as Two-Face, but he's a fvcking good actor and he's expressed regrets about his performance, so maybe he'd pull it out of his ass for a second go-around.
Keaton FTW!
