Michael Keaton recently revealed that he would play Batman again in a heart beat, and now the actor reveals why he didn't don the cape and cowl for a third time.

"[Batman III] Sucked!" Keaton told CBS News.

It's revealed that Keaton was actually offered $15 million to reprise a third time as Batman, but again, Keaton says the film was no good.

"Yeah, it just was awful!" Keaton said.

Keaton also added that similar to the announced casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, fans weren't all that happy with his own casting.

"Yeah! Villagers with torches, coming to get me!" Keaton offered.

Michael Keaton stars in Birdman, about a former actor who played a popular superhero, out in theaters October 17th.

"It was the most intense thing I'll probably ever do," he said about Birdman. "I can't imagine doing anything this hard."
