Despite having participated, even starring in some superhero films, actor Michael Keaton has assured that he has other “*** to do” than sit down to watch this type of movies or television series.
Speaking about his role as Bruce Wayne in DC’s upcoming installment, ‘The Flash’, Keaton said, “I know people don’t think I’ve never seen a full version of any of those movies, none of Marvel, any other. And I’m not saying I don’t see that because I’m cultured, believe me! It’s not that. It’s that there are very few things I see. I start watching something and I think it’s great, I watch three episodes, but I have other*** to do!”
Michael Keaton’s return as Wayne will be the actor’s first time wearing Batsuit since Tim Burton’s 1992 Batman.
When asked by Variety why he decided to join the cast of DC, the Hollywood star said he “looked funny” and wanted to socialize with other actors.
He added: “I was curious to know what it would be like after so many years. Not so much because I did it – obviously, some of that – but because I was curious, strangely, about the social. All this is gigantic. They have their own world. So I like to see him as a stranger, thinking, ‘Holy heaven!'”
Keaton also starred in the role of the Vulture in the Marvel film, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’.
On ‘The Flash’, the interpreter said that the script seemed really good, so he could not refuse to participate. “It’s great to let go. I’m curious to see if I can pull it off.”
His remarks come after he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2021 that he hadn’t seen a full superhero movie after starring in Tim Burton’s Batman.
“I just never focused on it. So you’re talking to a guy who wasn’t in the zeitgeist of that whole world. They’ll be making Marvel movies forever. I’ll be dead and they’ll keep making Marvel movies.”
