Since Batman v Superman seems to be inspired by Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, and that book features Batman and Joker's final battle, it makes sense that their fight might spill over — until Batman eventually gets his own movie again!
Speaking of Batman fights — how does he even stand a chance against Superman? In the comics, he has help from The Flash, Green Arrow, and some Kryptonite gloves.
But according to the film's fight choreographer Guillermo Grispo, it may just be brains over brawn. He says:
"There's a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug. But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there's a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a first-hand confrontation, though it seems to be totally to Batman's disadvantage."
Guillermo says Batman's fighting prowess will actually be one of the big draws of the film — and why they'll even surpass Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy! He says:
"Now Batman is going to fight the way I've always dreamed of seeing him fight. He's a character so prepared in martial arts that you can do a lot of things with him, but filmmakers usually don't go all the way with it.
Even in the last Nolan movies, the action scenes aren't very good from a technical, martial arts point of view to things like choreography, filming, bad camera movements.
Don't get me wrong, Nolan is great, my hats off to him… but I think that he did not pay too much attention to the fights. Those are the kind of details that Zack, being so physical himself, loves preparing. I think there's going to be a big difference when you see these Batman fights in comparison to the previous ones."
We're still holding out hope this is going to be as amazing as promised, but we do have to agree here — it's about time Batman got some great fight scenes!
