Keaton was just on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," talking about the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie, and Kimmel kind of put his foot in his mouth right away.
Kimmel: "I love Spider-Man, he's my favorite comic book character, easily."
Kimmel: "Spider-Man. He's the funny one."
Keaton gets up and mock chokes Kimmel at his desk.
Kimmel [laughing]: "No I'm sorry! I forgot, you're his nemesis. Your co-stars--"
Keaton: "No, I'm Batman! What the f*ck are you talking about?!"
The audience cheered. DC Batman loyalty > Marvel Spider-Man villain loyalty.
Kimmel went back to trying to talk about Keaton's "Homecoming" co-stars Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr., who were on "Kimmel" the other night. But Keaton wanted to talk about Batman. He said Batman came up frequently on set with Tom Holland. "He's a great kid, by the way."
If you dared to forget, Keaton debuted as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 1989 Tim Burton film "Batman," and returned in 1992 for Burton's "Batman Returns."
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opens July 7.
