Katon is either 5'9 or 5'10, there are conflicting sources. Bale is roughly 2 inches taller

And Keaton was cut, post-Batman, I think. But not built. He looked toned in Extreme Measures...but he's never looked muscular in any film to me.
He was always well built and athletic. Even before Batman he played a professional athelete in Touch and Go.

He also studied kickboxing

He was also buff during Batman Returns as seen in this screencap from '92 SNL, look at his arms

And again, Desperate Measures:

In most other movies he simply just doesnt show up without a shirt. But the fact remains hes well built and only 2 inches shorter than Bale, which goes against the myth that hes physically wimpy
