Michael Keaton Suits Up For ‘Birdman’
Michael Keaton was spotted running around Times Square on Monday wearing only white briefs underwear, filming a scene for his upcoming movie Birdman.
Keaton takes on the role of Riggan Thomson in the upcoming dark comedy. He plays a washed-up actor who himself once played an iconic superhero. In the film, his character overcomes his personal troubles to reclaim past glory by mounting a Broadway play.
In this particular scene, he is left running wearing only his tighty-whitey underwear, black socks, and shoes. Between takes, Keaton wore a black robe to cover up.
Last Thursday, Keaton was also shot in a scene in which he is followed by his Birdman alter ego – spotted on set both with wings and without. Later that day, Keaton was seen lifted up by wires against a green screen. Earlier that week, he was filmed floating above Times Square.
Keaton is no stranger to playing superheroes – he played Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns.
Birdman does not have a release date as of yet, and also stars Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Andrea Riseborough, and Edward Norton.
