SNL Preview: Michael Keaton Gives the Worst Promos Anyone’s Ever Seen
This past weekend’s SNL installment with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gave a shot of franchise Viagra to Season 40, but will Michael Keaton manage to keep it up? The first promos for the Birdman star’s third SNL outing have arrived, and in case you were wondering, yes, he’s still Batman too.
Starring opposite Cecily Strong, SNL’s latest Michael Keaton promos naturally call out the Birdman star getting robbed of a Best Actor Oscar, before getting robbed of his wallet altogether. Other spots drop the requisite Batman references, while later outings see Keaton turn up the charm and reference musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen ad nauseum, getting labeled the worst promos in history for his trouble. And sure, Multiplicity references, why not!
Following Keaton next week will be Empire star Taraji P. Henson, alongside musical guest Mumford & Sons. In the meantime, preview Michael Keaton’s return to Studio 8H for this weekend’s latest SNL above! What sketches will the original Batman bring about by his April 4 return?
