Michael Keaton gave the commencement speech Saturday at Ohio's Kent State University, and his ending is being called "perfect." "I’ve got two words that I want you all to remember," the actor said. "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." Those are the same two words Keaton said to close out 1989's Batman and 1992's Batman Returns, People notes, and Keaton even used his Batman voice to say them. As Digg points out, the graduates may have been too young to fully appreciate the reference, but their parents probably enjoyed it. Kent State has more on Keaton's speech, which also touched on his own history at the university, or you can watch it in full here. (More Michael Keaton stories.)
