Someone draw Cecily Strong a cold shower — Michael Keaton just used with the gravely Batman voice popularized by fellow caped crusader Christian Bale.

On Tuesday’s “Saturday Night Live” promos, the “Birdman” star is joined by “SNL” standout Strong to plug this weekend’s live sketch comedy show, which has Carly Rae Jepsen booked as musical guest. When the NBC staple cold-opens at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Keaton will officially be a member of the three-time hosts’ club.

Keaton and Strong also bring back the broadcast network’s “The More You Know” public service spots. They then perform a purposefully terrible celebrity news show spot, plugging the coming episode.

“Multiplicity” earns a mention and a cloning goof later in the promos, which also contain some solid Oscar snub humor.

Last week, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted “SNL,” his fourth time. Next Saturday, “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson makes her debut as the temporary face of the Lorne Michaels show.
