Birdman | US Release Trailer

Former Batman plays a washed up actor who played a superhero. Art imitating life or life imitating art?

Michael Keaton playing the lead in Birdman is strangely poetic, though it would be unfair to draw a straight comparison between Keaton’s career since vacating the Batsuit and that of the character he portrays in the film.

Riggan Thomson is a washed up actor, struggling with family problems and personal egotism, striving to regain the glory years of his career in which he portrayed an iconic super-hero by launching a Broadway show.

A washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.
