American Assassin’s Michael Keaton: Bat From the Dead

Tony Black examines the career highlights of Michael Keaton...


There’s a strong argument Keaton didn’t really capitalise on the success of both Batman pictures, before he left the series when Burton didn’t return for 1995’s Batman Forever. He played as part of Kenneth Branagh’s ensemble in 1993’s Shakespeare-adaptation Much Ado About Nothing and this penchant for light comedy and romance seemed to follow him more than a return to the action stylistics of Batman; 1994’s The Paper by Ron Howard or Multiplicty in 1995, from Harold Ramis, alongside Andie MacDowell. Keaton was playing it safe, leaning back on his laconic, edgy charm, much like Matthew McConaughey did before his McConnaisance.
