Happy Birthday Michael Keaton!

He's easily one of my favourite actors. He is without a doubt still the best live-action Batman to date. I think he just hits all the right notes. He's brooding without feeling to stoic or emo, he has a intimidating presence that doesn't sound ridiculous or forced and he could humorous without being too campy. Though thanks to his performance as Betelgeuse I can't help but wish he had been cast as The Joker....because when Michael plays a psychopathic villain he really goes all out like in the movie Desperate Measures. Though with that said he's versatile that he can do comedy just as easily in movies such as Multiplicity and The Other Guys.

His voice work as Ken, Chick Hicks and Jack Crowley were excellent, I hope he gets the chance to voice Batman someday....like seriously Andrea Romano can you please make it happen. He's too good of an actor to not voice the caped crusader.

also I haven't seen Birdman yet and I'm aware of how critically acclaimed it is, I'm going to check it out the first chance I get.

I loved Peter Weller's performance in The Dark Knight Returns. But I've sometimes wondered what it would have been like if Keaton had voiced him there.

You know, since it's "The Dark Knight RETURNS".

He should voice Batman in a DTV animated movie at some point. I know he's too old to play Batman Live-Action, but that doesn't mean he can't voice him.

@LordofEvil96 Definitely agree that he should voice Batman at some point.

But I wholeheartedly DISAGREE about him being too old to play Batman. In fact, he's at a good age right now (62 ish?) to play a good TDKReturns Batman. He was a great young Batman, and I think he'd be an even better *older* Batman.

Now you probably meant that most other consider him to be too old, rather than *you* actually holding that opinion yourself. :)

@TylerMirage Yeah I was referring to other people. In fact I think he'd rock as TDKR Batman.

@LordofEvil96 They should make a movie where various Batmen from various universes meet, including Michael Keaton and Christian Bale.

@TylerMirage i also liked Val Kilmer. What about you?

@Archerboy58 Agreed.

@TylerMirage Maybe the amount of Shoutouts your comment gets can combine it. :)
