Birdman’s Michael Keaton hasn’t seen Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy


02 January 2015

He can currently be seen in Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and Michael Keaton who featured as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) has explained that he hasn’t got around to watching Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Keaton explained "[Batman] was a great gig, really fun. I was fortunate to have it, but I haven't gotten round to it (seeing the later films).

But you could ask me about a whole bunch of movies, and I probably haven't seen it. I kept saying to myself, I should go see one of those, because Christian Bale is such a great actor."

Addressing the possibility of appearing in a proposed Beetlejuice sequel from Burton, Keaton added "It would have to be really good, otherwise don't mess, leave it alone. I would do it if was pretty good, because it was such fun, but it would have to have Tim involved somehow, either as producer or director. And he's really busy, as am I."

Keaton’s comments come after Burton revealed Beetlejuice 2 is "closer than ever" but relies heavily on the actor's involvement, and Winona Ryder is already confirmed to return in her role as Lydia.
