Just thought they would've added it in there with the martial arts very weird they didn't.
Hardly no acrobats from bats in the three movies ?
I really hope that the reboot emphasizes movement rather than just force. I mean, sure, the fight scenes in the Nolan films were great, but they were wild brawls. I've always imagined Batman's fights as graceful dances, or games of chess. Unfortunately, with the armored suit in the trilogy, he can't really move around quickly. Plus, it seems like all his training was in boxing, seemingly only throwing wild hooks and uppercuts with the occasional forward "heel" kick. Then again, what do I know, because that's actually quite similar to UFC fights, and they're the best fighters in the world.
Nolan wanted the movies to be as "realistic"(we're still dealing with a man who dresses like a bat to fight crime) as posible. i love martial arts movies but doing backlflips and similar acrobatic martial arts moves isn't as useful in a real fight, a well trained boxer can punch harder (and uses less energy doing so) than most martial artists.iv'e always imagined Batman(especially Nolan's version) as someone who doesn't try to show off and goes for the easiest takedown possible.
@Superdork: Wait I'm curious, whats dumb with the choreography? I think the only way Batman would work in a Justice LEague movie is that in the next movie Batman's fight sequence is more theatrical. The reason why Martial Arts movies are amazing is the beautiful choreography. It literally is art, and it is super cool to see. Now I don't think there should be any freezing in the air or anything gimmicky like that, but there should be some sick choreo, that shows off what Batman can do. I mean for a master of martial arts we didn't get to see it much at all in Nolanverse. Sure there was keysie, but to me that looks like choreographed brawling. Not nearly as beautiful
@batshrine: I just like my Batman to fight realistically. They could amp it up, but I would hate martial arts poses and flips and show-offy bs that would get you killed i real life. No Matrix/Jet Li/Crouching Tiger/Bruce Lee choreography.
Something more like Arkham Asylum or Jason Bourne. Way cooler and more believable.
I can understand how the poses are silly, and Batman isn't one to pose. So I agree with that and the fighting in the Arkham games is beautiful. But if you for example see Jackie Chans fighting scenes in Rush Hour (I know not the best martial arts movies out there), still has martial arts but no poses from Jackie Chan. So you can still have beautiful choreography. Now as far as stunts go, a few here and there for theatricality doesn't hurt. I mean if it helps scare the bad guys. But obviously the character that does the most flips would be nightwing, so its not even Batman's style to flip everywhere.
