Riggan Thomson from Birdman

In Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), Michael Keaton plays Riggan, an actor best known for portraying a superhero called Birdman in the ’90s.  Riggan’s daughter Sam is an addict in recovery as well as his assistant.  Riggan is attempting to mount a career comeback by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway play opposite Mike Shiner.  Riggan’s grasp on reality is tenuous at best, as he often imagines himself levitating and flying as well as having conversations with his Birdman persona.

Porco Rosso

In the English version of Porco Rosso, Michael Keaton voices the titular character.  A former WWI fighter ace, Marco is cursed and therefore forced to spend his days as an anthropomorphic pig who goes by the name Porco Rosso and makes his living as a bounty hunter who chases air pirates.  Porco Rosso’s clothing consists of pretty standard pilot clothing including sunglasses, goggles, and a scarf.

Betelgeuse

Betelgeuse, also known as “Beetlejuice” is a trickster and mischievous ghost. He is the titular antagonist of the Tim Burton film Beetlejuice as well as the protagonist of the 90s cartoon series.

Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming

Vulture

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Vulture (Michael Keaton) is the nickname of Adrian Toomes, the owner of a salvage company turned supervillain after the government and Iron Man put him out of business. Vulture clashes against Spider-Man, sometimes even while the latter is wearing his homemade costume.

Walter Nelson

In Minions, Walter Nelson (voiced by Michael Keaton) is your typical suburban dad except for the fact that he and his wife are bank robbers. Despite his criminal ways, he has a soft spot for the minions and gives them a lift to Villain-Con in Orlando.

Batman

Batman (Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, or Adam West, depending on your age) is the secret identity assumed by billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, driven by the murder of his parents. For this costume, we recommend you upgrade the mask, gloves, boots, and cape — basically everything except the chest and belt.
