Michael Keaton is no stranger to donning a superhero’s cape and tights and serving up justice. But the former Batman isn’t exactly joining the ranks of Marvel and DC’s long list of superhero features in the coming months and years with his new film, Birdman. (The poster includes a subtitle, or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, but don’t expect to be seeing that in any other marketing.) Once a prominent actor who portrayed everyone’s favorite fictional hero, the man at the center of this fascinating little story (Keaton) must deal with his current status as a struggling, dull shell of the star he once was, as he attempts to take on a role in a Broadway play and maybe face reality. While he’ll always have his past life as Birdman, it’s been too long since he’s strapped on his wings and slipped on his mask, and the cracks are beginning to show in his persona. What about the public that still views him as Birdman, even when he’s clearly coming apart at the seams? Take a leap of faith with the first trailer for Birdman below.
