Filming was underway in Times Square for Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s Birdman. As you can see Michael Keaton (Batman) was wired up to fly although I am not sure how that fits into the film.
Birdman is a dark comedy that follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story in a bid to reclaim past glory. However, the play’s egotistical leading man threatens to throw everything down the tubes.
As you can see Keaton is playing an actor who played a Superhero so I can only assume the scene being filmed was for a film within the film or possibly a dream sequence.
Birdman also stars Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Edward Norton and Zach Galifianakis.
