This one could go either way. Having it star a Batman is something that makes it worth while to us here at Mania. In Birdman, Michael Keaton plays a former actor who is trying to start his career over again. Sadly, he is being haunted by his iconic portrayal of Birdman. As you can see by the photos this could be a literal haunting.
Synopsis: 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.
Is the film a dark comedy, a drama, or a superhero flick? Only time will tell. Birdman is scheduled for a 2014 release. It is directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel, 21 Grams, and Biutful).
Birdman features Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan, and Zach Galifianakis.
