** So much regarding Creator/MichaelKeaton, which makes the metatextual aspects of the movie all the more relevant.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Sam's not very nice, but when you consider that Riggan is her father, it's hard to blame her -- while it's clear he loves her, he's often too self-involved and unbalanced to be a good parent. She has to put up with his (and everyone else's) bullshit ''constantly'', and is often viewed as a nuisance at best by the others.

*** On the subject of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse (which this movie [[TakeThat alludes to in a pretty disparaging way]]), Michael Keaton being courted for a role in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' makes his character's reluctance to return to superhero movies that much more ironic.
*** Keaton being confirmed to play Vulture in that very movie is a pretty obvious ActorAllusion to ''this'' movie, making the concept of the Birdman persona in its relation to promoting Riggan's CareerResurrection amusing. That in-movie, it says that they need to go back to doing another ''Birdman'' movie now that Riggan is in the limelight again, makes Keaton's decision to play Vulture outright hysterical.

*** During the famous naked Broadway walk scene, a person dressed in Spider-Man costume [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C8CrX6OVMAA-VN2.jpg appears in the crowd]], making for some pretty amusing comments.

* AdaptationDisplacement[=/=]WeirdAlEffect: For some ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' may have been your first introduction to the character, presuming you weren't alive for the 1960s or if you had never seen any of the 1990s reruns.

* EasilyForgiven: Mike [[AttemptedRape attempts to rape]] Lesley during a preview in clear view of the cast, crew, and audience. Only Lesley and Sam call him out and all is forgiven by the next day.

** Riggan confesses to his lawyer Jake that he caused a stage light to drop on Ralph to clear his role for another actor. Admitting this near-murder attempt doesn't cause him any trouble.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: The movie depicts how the world of Broadway is embracing this trope. Riggan's suicide attempt is the icing on the cake.

* GeniusBonus: Of course, ''[[Creator/JorgeLuisBorges Borge's]] Labyrinths'' is the book Mike is reading while in the tanning booth. It's blatantly symbolic of him, Riggan, and the film's high art obsession along with the film's MagicalRealism elements.
