Michael John Douglas is better known as Michael Keaton professionally and is undoubtedly a veteran of Hollywood. Born on September 5, 1951, this 67-year-old has had a prolific career in the entertainment industry. Keaton first rose to fame due to his roles on the CBS shows which include ‘All’s Fair’ and ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Hour’. His comedic film roles earned him further plaudits as he starred in movies like ‘Night Shift’, ‘Johnny Dangerously’, ‘Mr. Mom’ and ‘Beetlejuice’. However, Keaton perhaps became a household name after his dramatic portrayal of the caped crusader in Tim Burton’s Batman movies, namely, the 1989 ‘Batman’ and the 1992 movie, ‘Batman Returns’.
Following this Keaton has appeared in several roles over his career but not a lot of them went on to become very noteworthy. Some of his major appearances include, ‘Clean and Sober’, ‘The Dream Team’, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, ‘Pacific Heights’, ‘Multiplicity’, ‘Jackie Brown‘, ‘The Other Guys’, ‘Robocop’ and ‘Need For Speed’. However, it was only in 2014 when Keaton appeared in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s film ‘Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)‘ that his career saw another revival. The role won him a Golden Globe, a Critic’s Choice Award and also got him nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award, British Academy Film Award, and an Oscar for Best Actor. Keaton then appeared in a couple of acclaimed films like ‘Spotlight’ and ‘The Founder’. He has lent his voice to several notable animated films like ‘Cars’, ‘Toy Story 3’, ‘Minions’. His latest performance has been as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he plays Vulture. He appeared in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Michael Keaton movie? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Michael Keaton films/tv shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Michael Keaton movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
1. Dumbo (2019)
‘Dumbo’ is an upcoming fantasy adventure film that is slated to release on March 29, 2019. The movie is loosely based on the 1941 Disney movie of the same name but actually borrows from the novel by Harold Pearl and Helen Aberson. The cast of the film is impressive including the likes of Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin. The story follows a struggling circus owner and ringmaster Max Medici, played by DeVito, who begins to take care of a baby elephant with oversized ears. The elephant becomes the laughing stock of the circus but soon Medici’s children make the astounding discovery that the elephant can use its ears to fly. This convinces an aggressive but persuasive entrepreneur, V. A. Vandevere, and a French trapeze artist name Colette Marchant to swoop in to capitalize on the rising star’s fame. Michael Keaton plays the role of Vandevere and as his previous roles have shown us, Keaton can pull off an intimidating role quite easily.
2. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
