Whether we're sharing a pack of gum or just slashing our boss's tires, aren't we all, in some small way, Batman? Perhaps, but in a different, vastly more significant way, Michael Keaton is Batman and the rest of us are just waiting to be rescued.

Asked recently if he was envious of Ben Affleck, who stars as The Dark Knight in the upcoming Batman v Superman, Keaton reportedly told Variety, "No," adding, "Do you know why? Because I'm Batman. I'm very secure in that."

On Thursday, Keaton was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in Birdman, another cowled crime-fighter he's presumably pretty sure about being.
