One of the most exciting aspects of Spider-Man: Homecoming is the return of Michael Keaton to the world of comic book movies. It has been 25 years since the actor last suited up as Batman, and there is no doubt that the landscape of superhero movies has changed since his time as The Dark Knight.
Keaton expressed his feelings on the matter in a recent interview with Deadline, but had nothing but praise for Marvel Studios and his experience working on the new film.
"I have thought about the way things have changed, because I just did Spider-Man, and Marvel? That is one well-oiled machine. It is remarkable how they have got that whole thing covered in a really qualitative way."
Keaton was asked to elaborate and revealed that he enjoyed the organization, and being surrounded by such great actors, just as he was while working on Tim Burton's Batman.
"Just how efficient it is, in the best sense, and how it operates on a practical level. How organized they are about what they make and how conscientious they are about what they have. They’ve got really wonderful actors for one thing, but I guess that has always been the case. Batman always had great actors surrounding that character. We had Pat Hingle and all these terrific actors. They really get that script is important, and they really protect their lore and that culture and they see the enormity of it, on a capitalistic level."
He would wrap things up with praise for leading man Tom Holland, and sharing that he actually hasn't watched any other Marvel movies up to this point.
"A great kid, by the way. [Setting up future films] doesn’t sound easy to do. I haven’t seen any of those movies, though. I just haven’t. It’s not a judgment."
Starring Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover and Robert Downey Jr., Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theatres on June 7, 2017.
