- He has also appeared in MCU as the villain Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming
Michael Keaton asserts that he hasn't seen any movies from either the DC or the Marvel studios, despite having appeared in both. Keaton is known for portraying DC’s Batman (1989) and its 1992 sequel Batman Returns. Additionally, he appeared in a post-credits sequence for the movie Morbius and Spider-Man: Homecoming as Vulture.
Keaton acknowledged in a recent interview with Variety that people don't believe him when he claims he hasn't seen any Marvel or DC films. "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. It's just that there's very little things I watch. I start watching something and think it is great and I watch three episodes, but I have other s*** to do!", the Dopesick actor said.

In both the upcoming Flash films by Andy Muschietti and the upcoming Batgirl film by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, he will reprise his role as Batman. When asked the reason as to why he took this role again, the actor said," It seemed like fun. I was curious what it would be like after this many years. Not so much me doing it — obviously, some of that — but I was just curious about it, weirdly, socially. This whole thing is gigantic. They have their entirely own world. So, I like to look at it as an outsider, thinking ‘Holy moly!’”
When asked about the upcoming Flash movie, he said," The writing was actually really good. So I thought, why not? It’s cool to drop in and I’m curious to see if I can pull it off.”
The 70-year-old actor is most known for his critically praised and financially successful movies including Mr. Mom, Beetlejuice, and Birdman, for which he garnered his lone Oscar nomination. He has acted in a range of movies, including Much Ado About Nothing (1993), The Paper (1994), The Other Guys (2010), Spotlight (2015), The Founder (2016), and The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020). Additionally, he has lent his voice to animated movies like Cars (2006), Toy Story 3 (2010), and Minions (2015).
