If you can't be Spider-Man, be Batman!

Or if you can't be Vulture, be Batman!

Michael Keaton appeared last night on Jimy Kimmel Live where Kimmel tells Keaton his favorite comic book character is Spider-Man.

Well, Michael Keaton didn't take that too kindly as he chokes Jimmy Kimmel!

Kimmel then says he forgot Michael Keaton is playing Vulture, Spider-Man's nemesis, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which sees Keaton respond with: "No! I'm Batman! What the f' are you talking about!"

Jimmy Kimmel then begins to talk about Keaton's co-stars Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr., as they were there on Kimmel Monday, with Keaton joking," Let's talk about Batman."

Michael Keaton goes on to note he loves talking about Batman and that it frequently came up on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

"He's a great kid by the way," Keaton says about Tom Holland. "He's really good. Those guys are great."

Watch the video:

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" has a July 7, 2017 release directed by Jon Watts starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Michael Keaton, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. 


A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
