Michael Keaton will once again don the superhero tights in Birdman, but not quite in the way are expecting. This time around is a little on the bizarre side. In fact this isn’t really a superhero movie.
Well not in the traditional Marvel or DC sense, it is the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) who once played a superhero named Birdman and now struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
Birdman is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, and stars Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Zach Galifianakis, it opens in theaters on October 17, 2014.
