BIRDMAN, starring Michael Keaton, Top Offbeat Superhero Movie for 2014

Birdman-Michael-Keaton-movie-2014

“Birdman,” starring Michael Keaton, has got to be the best offbeat superhero movie since “Paper Man,” starring Ryan Reynolds, as Captain Excellent, in 2009. You can also include “Super,” starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, and Liv Tyler. Hmm, then there’s “Kick-Ass” (2010) and “Kick-Ass 2” (2013). We could maybe add a few more. They emerge at a nice steady pace.

There’s no doubt, especially after seeing the new trailer released today, that “Birdman” will not only be an offbeat treat but could very well be Oscar-worthy. Keaton is one of the greats and he’s never taken himself too seriously. That says a lot for the guy who was once known as Batman. For some fans, he’s still Batman.

“Birdman,” or “The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance,” is a dark comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton), known for portraying an iconic superhero, as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself. That is a solid synopsis. With an all-star cast that includes Emma Stone, Edward Norton, and Zach Galifianakis, this is sure to be a hit when it rolls out this fall.
