Alejando González Iñárritu, the director of the magnificent “21 Grams” and “Babel” is trying comedy with his upcoming film “Birdman”. The film, according to FirstShowing, is said to follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he decides to take on a Broadway play based on a short story by Raymond Chandler in order to reclaim past glory.

And who will play this role? None other than Batman himself, Michael Keaton, who played the caped crusader in the Tim Burton films. The film also has  Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis in it as well. This sounds like an amazing comedy. Can’t wait to see it.
