On Tuesday, Michael Keaton, 70, was one of the guests on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," where he spoke about his iconic role in the "Batman" movies.

In 1989, the actor appeared in "Batman" as the main star and then reprised his role in "Batman Returns" in 1992. He's now set to play the same role again in the movie "The Flash."

Speaking about the Batman suit he wore for the two films, Keaton revealed to show host Stephen Colbert that it still fit him perfectly, three decades later! Surprising Colbert, the legendary actor explained that he was:

"Svelte as ever. Same dimensions. Same fitting.”

When Colbert, 57, asked what it felt like for the "Birdman" star to jump back into the suit, Keaton confessed it felt "great" before joking that all past Batman should create their own union at this point.

In a previous interview with Jimmy Fallon, the "Beetlejuice" star described wearing the Batman suit again like "riding a bike." He said it was easier for him to be skinny and not have to work out. He joked that this helped him have more work-around room.

The Andy Muschietti-directed movie, "The Flash," is set to be released in theaters on November 4, 2021, with Ezra Miller starring as the iconic superhero the Flash (Barry Allen). His character will travel through parallel universes where he'll meet different classic superheroes from the DC stable like Batman.

Besides his upcoming role as Batman, Keaton fans can expect to see him in a new Hulu limited series – "Dopesick." The show is based on Beth Macy's book about the opioid epidemic.

The series also stars other big names like Peter Sarsgaard, Rosario Dawson, Kaitlyn Dever, and Michael Stuhlbarg. The show will start airing on October 13, 2021.

"Dopesick" tries to tackle and give a firsthand look at America's war on drugs. The series mixes real-life characters, like the Sackler family, including Richard Sackler, played by Stuhlbarg, with fictional ones.

Stuhlbarg's character fights to conquer his pain with a drug known as OxyContin, which he tries to sell to doctors, like Keaton's character Samuel Finnix. He claims OxyContin, unlike other drugs, lacks addictive properties.
