Thankfully Michael Keaton has had a successful career since last playing Batman in 1992, otherwise his latest movie, Birdman, could be considered a biopic!

Birdman is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) — famous for portraying an iconic superhero — as he 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.

Also starring Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. Birdman hits theaters on October 17, 2014.
