Michael Keaton plays an actor famous for portraying an iconic superhero who struggles to mount a Broadway play in “Birdman,” coming to theaters in the fall. 
 
It’s a black comedy tracking the days leading up to opening night as he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, career and himself. 
 
The Pittsburgh native, who famously donned Batman's cape and cowl, looks like he’s in top acting form here, appearing alongside Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts.
 
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, whose credits include “Biutiful,”  “Babel” and “21 Grams,” directs the Fox Searchlight movie being billed as “Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance.”
