Michael Keaton Is Still Batman

Michael Keaton gave the commencement address at Kent State University’s graduation last weekend and he ended his speech with “I’m Batman” to get a rise out of the audience. Which is awesome…..for me. But these are 22 year old’s. They were around negative 4 when he played Batman for the last time in 1992. Its the equivalent of Adam West showing up at my graduation and saying “I’m Batman.” No, no you’re not. You’re not my Batman. Michael Keaton is. For these kids, Christian Bale is their Batman. After all they were around nine or ten when Batman Begins came out. God help us if Christian Bale ever gives a commencement address in fifteen years and says “I’m Batman.” Because those kids will only know Batfleck.
