New York: Michael Keaton, who launched the 'Batman' franchise in 1989 before his career as a leading man, is making a comeback in films with new movie 'Birdman'.
Keaton said he did not worry the film might be confused with his own story, reportedly.
"There was that moment where you go, 'Is this going to be an issue in terms of having played Batman?'," Keaton said at Le Cirque after the movie closed the New York Film Festival.
"There was almost really no time to discuss this because there was so much work to do," he added. The movie, which opens this Friday. Is set in Broadway's St James Theatre and shot to look like one continuous take.
