Michael Keaton says he's never watched an entire Marvel or DC Comics movie despite playing characters in both universes


  • Michael Keaton claims he has never seen a comic-book movie.
  • Variety reported that he said, “I have other shitto do.”

Michael Keaton is far too busy to keep up with all the Marvel Comics and DC Comics content out there right now.

He admits to never having seen an entire MCU or DC Comics movie, despite being the one responsible for Hollywood’s comic-book movie craze.

“I know people don’t believe this, that I’ve never seen an entire version of any of those movies — any Marvel movie, any other. And I don’t say that I don’t watch that because I’m highbrow — trust me! “It’s not that,” Keaton told Variety recently. “It’s simply that I don’t watch very many things.”

“I start to watch something, and it is great. I watch three episodes,” said he. “But I have other shitto do!”

Keaton, who starred as Batman in “Batman Returns”, 1992’s sequel, took a decade-long break from the comic book movie scene.

The villain Vulture, which he played in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, was his return to superhero movies. The character has been re-enacted in a small part in “Morbius” this year.

Keaton will be putting on his Batman costume soon and playing the role in “The Flash” as well as “Batgirl,” the HBO Max movie.

Variety was told by Keaton that he wanted to reprise the role because he thought it would make him happy.

“I was curious to see what it would be like after all these years. Not so much me doing it — obviously, some of that — but I was just curious about it, weirdly, socially,” he said. This whole thing is huge. They each have their own world. I prefer to view it as an outsider thinking “Holy moly!”
