Birdman

The ‘Birdman’ Website’s Michael Keaton Bio Comics Are The Weirdest Things You’ll Read Today And Possibly Ever

Michael Keaton comics by John Campbell

Since it's a movie about an actor best known for playing a superhero, it's not entirely strange for the Birdman movie website to have a section of comics. Unexpected, sure, but it makes a certain kind of sense. The story of the film surrounds an actor whose public persona is tied to a superhero film franchise. Comics could help tie the movie more tightly to that superhero's mythology, and flesh out the world of a film in an interesting and engaging way for fans who are curious to find out more.

But here's the thing: The comics on the Birdman website aren't about Birdman at all. Instead, they're about its star, Michael Keaton, telling strange stories about how he was attacked by Michael Douglas and forced to change his name, how a meeting with Chris Farley involved prophecies of death, and, perhaps strangest of all, a long text piece about Courtney Cox's unfortunate super-powers.

‘Birdman’ Director Says Superhero Movies Are ‘Cultural Genocide’

bSG9DG

Birdman, the movie in which former Batman actor Michael Keaton stars as an actor who rose to superstardom playing the titular superhero, comes out today, and it looks to be a pretty strong dark comedy.

If you're looking for a little context before you head off to see it, the movie's director, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, minced no words when asked about his opinion of superhero movies in a Deadline interview this week. The key soundbite would be "cultural genocide." There's a little more to it than that, though.

Birdman: Michael Keaton Is An Actor Going Insane After Playing A Superhero… Hmmm [Video]

Untitled-1

As much as I might not like Tim Burton's Batman movies, I will always kind of love Michael Keaton. I mean, I saw Multiplicity in the theater. Twice. That's how much I love that dude. And as a result, I could not possibly be more interested in Birdman, a new film by Alejandro González Iñárritu starring Keaton as an actor best known for playing a superhero, a role that cast a shadow over his career and may be destroying his mental health.

Also, the Hulk, Gwen Stacy and Snow Job are in it.It's pretty exciting.
