Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s 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.
Michael Keaton is playing the actor who played Birdman. We have already seen photos of him floating over Times Sq. The fact he is walking around looking dishevelled while Birdman accompanies him does make me think that the Birdman character could be in his imagination.
Birdman also stars Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Edward Norton and Zach Galifianakis.
