WATCH: Michael Keaton Rocks Kent State Gradation: Ends Commencement Speech With Two ‘Very Important’ Words… “I’m Batman”

After filling recent graduates of Kent State University with inspirational words, Michael Keaton ended his commencement address on Saturday with two words — two “very important” words.

“I’ve got one more thing to say and it’ll only take me a second, and I’ve got two words that I want you all to remember,” he said, capping off his nearly 20-minute-long speech. “They’re very important, and if I leave you with anything, I’m going to leave you with these two words. And those two words are: I’m Batman.”

Keaton uttered those words in Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989 and its 1992 sequel Batman Returns. It’s since become his signature as he continues to make various fan appearances.
