'I have other s**t to do!' Batman vet Michael Keaton, 70, says he has not seen a full DC or Marvel superhero movie... even though he recently worked on The Flash and Morbius

Michael Keaton says he has not seen a full DC or Marvel superhero movie.

The 70-year-old Batman star said he has 'other s*** to do' than to sit on the sofa and watch these sorts of movies.

Not only has he starred in two Batman movies from DC Comics - Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) - but he has reprised the alter-ego of Bruce Wayne in the DC Comics show The Flash, which stars Ezra Miller. And he is also scheduled to pop up as Wayne/Batman opposite Leslie Grace in Batgirl, which is also from DC Comics. Keaton was last seen in the Marvel film Morbius.

No time! Michael Keaton says he has not seen a full DC or Marvel superhero movie. The Batman star says he has 'other s*** to do' than to sit on the sofa and watch these sorts of movies. Seen in February

The actor told Variety: 'I know people don't believe this, that I've never seen an entire version of any of those movies — any Marvel movie, any other. 

'And I don't say that I don't watch that because I'm highbrow — trust me! It's not that,' the ex of Courteney Cox shared. 

'It's just that there's very little things I watch. I start watching something, and think it is great and I watch three episodes, but I have other s*** to do!' added the busy actor who was last seen as Adrian Toomes in Morbius.

Morbius is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. 

Michael admitted to being 'curious' to do the role again and take part in the 'gigantic' world of Marvel and DC universes.

Marvel? No thanks! The 70-year-old actor told Variety : 'I know people don't believe this, that I've never seen an entire version of any of those movies — any Marvel movie, any other'

He said: 'I was curious what it would be like after this many years. Not so much me doing it — obviously, some of that — but I was just curious about it, weirdly, socially. This whole thing is gigantic. 

'They have their entirely own world, so I like to look at it as an outsider, thinking "Holy moly!"'

Michael added: 'So I thought, why not? It's cool to drop in and I'm curious to see if I can pull it off.'

The Birdman star is not the only actor to come back to the character as recently it was confirmed that Ben Affleck would get back into the suit and into the BatMobile in Aquaman 2, which was recently played by Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves' 2021 movie.

This comes after Andie MacDowell said to Empire that she 'learned a lot about taking chances' from Keaton.

The 64-year-old actress says the pair's 1996 sci-fi comedy Multiplicity was underrated and should have been as big a hit as her other '90s flick Groundhog Dog.

Asked if one her films has a special place in her heart, she replied: 'Multiplicity. It was great, and Michael Keaton is brilliant in it. It should have been equally as successful as 'Groundhog Day'. The people who did see it, loved it. It was ahead of its time. They used brand-new technology, as Michael plays four characters.'

The answer prompted the interviewer to ask if she's still in touch with the actor, and she said the Jack Frost star has been hugely influential on her approach to characters.

Andie replied: 'He interviewed me recently about Maid. I learned a lot from Michael about taking chances, and playing a character that's bigger than life.'
