After his teary speech at the SAG Awards after winning Limited Series Male Actor for Dopesick, Michael Keaton continued his awards march for playing Dr. Samuel Finnix with his first Emmy Primetime trophy last night for playing the part.
But all reporters wanted to know about was more Batman.
Asked backstage his thoughts on Warner Bros. Discovery axing Batgirl, a film in which we were also expected to see him reprise his Caped Crusader role, Keaton answered, “I think it was a business decision. It was a film, it was a good one.”
It was unclear if he was saying the business decision was “a good one,” or the movie, which David Zaslav said was “irredeemable.”
And when will moviegoers see Keaton as Batman again?
“Oh, a little later tonight,” joked Keaton. “No, I’m kidding. I don’t know. I really have no idea.”
