Keaton played the role again in 1992 for Batman Returns. In 2014, he starred in the dark comedy film Birdman about an actor who was previously known for playing a superhero. His character could not seem to restart his career due to the voice of Birdman continuously haunting him. In 2017, Keaton returned to superhero films once again as he played the villainous Vulture in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
