Michael Keaton Is Not Jealous of Ben Affleck: 'I'm Batman!'

Michael Keaton has no jealousy over Ben Affleck and all the other men who have played Batman after him.

The 63-year-old Birdman actor was asked to comment on Christian Bale‘s recent statement that he is jealous of Ben for getting to play the character in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“When I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour,” Christian said. “The fact that I’m jealous of someone else playing Batman… I think I should have gotten over it by now.”

Here is what Michael had to say when asked if he gets jealous (via The Shortlist): “No. Do you know why? Because I’m Batman. I’m very secure in that.”

    Michael stepping in for Adam West, it was a total ‘new look’ for pictures, and Superhero’s in the comics became more graphical than this from the early 80′s. A reason why I prefer 1st editon Dieties and Demigods graphics to the later style.
    Scrooge McDuck and all that twaddle is just as interesting for me.
    Mario/Asterix – yeah, sure thing.
    Women’s Day/New Idea – more yakka.
    Popular Mechanics/Hot Dune Buggies – goodo.
