'SNL': Michael Keaton plays Batman in new promo

Posted on


Michael Keaton starts off his Saturday Night Live promos on a bad note, when he forgets to say his own name. But he quickly remedies that once Cecily Strong points out his mistake: The Birdman star responds by putting on a deep voice, looking into the camera, and uttering, “I’m Batman.”

The promo also includes references to 1996’s Multiplicity and NBC’s The More You Know PSAs, plus a mention of how Keaton got “robbed” at this year’s Oscars (where he received a Best Actor nod—but not the award itself). 

Keaton hosts the show (for the third time) April 4, with musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen.
