Michael Keaton was upset when he found out that Ryan Reynolds was also making the switch between DC and Marvel.
Besides Ryan Reynolds, Michael Keaton is one of the few stars to work in both Marvel and DC properties. Reynolds first joined Marvel in 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Deadpool. He later jumped aboard and became Green Lantern in 2011. When his DC movie was critically panned, Reynolds returned to Marvel as Deadpool in 2016. Now it looks like the comedian has found a permanent home at Marvel.
On the other hand, Micheal Keaton became DC’s Batman in 1989 and retired from the role after 1992 Batman returns. Decades later, he transitioned to Marvel as the Vulture for Spider-Man: Homecoming, a character he will soon be playing again. However, Keaton will also return as Batman for the coming Flash movie by Andy Muschietti.
Since Michael Keaton has characters in both the Marvel and DC universes, he thought he was quite special. That is until Jimmy Kimmel revealed to him that Ryan Reynolds also has the same honor.
“There’s a lot I can’t say because I don’t know what’s going on. I’m in two worlds, aren’t I? I’m in the Marvel world and DC.”
Then Jimmy Kimmel told Michael Keaton that Ryan Reynolds also exists in both worlds. Then Keaton let out an expletive and yelled, “Really?” Of course, Keaton’s reaction is probably a joke.
The exchange will take place at 12:00 noon.
Michael Keaton will appear next in morbius. Here’s the official synopsis for it morbius:
