I’ve been aware of Birdman for a couple of months ago, but I never really paid it any attention. It’s a story that has been done before by a different Batman, but what the hell, I have a soft spot for the star of this flick, Michael Keaton. In it, he’s a washed up former superhero who is attempting to make some cash by staging a Broadway show based on his career and monumental ego.
And according to these pictures, the Birdman costume looks like it might get its feathers sued off by Owlman. And I doubt that Harvey Birdman will help him out in court.
While the majority of the film is set inside the theatre where Keaton has to contend with various issues as he ramps up production, there’ll most likely be a few outside scenes as well. No idea where these pictures slot into the film, but I’m truly digging that Birdman costume. The comedy film is a first in that genre for director Alejandro González Iñárritu, and also stars Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Ryan, and Andrea Riseborough.
