Michael Keaton Declares "I'm Batman" During Commencement Speech

Michael Keaton Declares

And while many have taken on the role of the brooding superhero since then, from George Clooney's bad portrayal to Christian Bale's astounding performance, Keaton still considers himself as the Dark Knight.

Keaton delivered the 2018 commencement address for Kent State University (where he went to college) in OH last weekend, and while he probably gave inspiring advice about not letting other people define you and the obligatory Robert Frost and/or Shel Silverstein quote, the speech will only be remembered for two words.

The actor delivered a commencement address Saturday at Kent State University where he's an alum.

The protest paid off when creator Lana Wachoswski announced that Netflix was allowing a two-hour movie to conclude the series. A new trailer for Netflix's Sense8 is promising an emotional and action-packed end to the series.

There's not an Academy Award for best celebrity commencement speeches, of course. I'm a Michael Keaton guy.

Keaton could have gone the more dramatic route and yelled "Beetlejuice!" But he went with his memorable line from the 1989 film "Batman", and 1992′s "Batman Returns". "And those two words are: I'm Batman".

"I've got one more thing to say and it'll only take me a second, and I've got two words that I want you all to remember", he said, capping off his almost 20-minute-long speech. And all because of two perfectly chosen words.
