Batman Physique Thread
 
Out of every superhero I think more empathesis should be on the way Batmans physique is shown because he a human who engages in gruelling training to possess the abilities he has, whoever is cast should aim for an absolutely amazing looking body that looks powerful and agile. I thought Bale didn't do Batman justice in regards to the body especially is the two sequels after Begins

It was kind of hard to tell about Bale's physique since in TDK and TDKR since there were only glimpses of him without a shirt.

Warlow from true blood? Hell no way to small. He doesn't look as good as that shirtless in true blood so guessing that pic is enhanced in some way.

He wasn't in Batman shape in TDK we got a good glimpse of him in the boat party scene and he looked scrawny compared to his BB shape.

he was much bigger in Begins. He was smaller in each of the following movies. It fit him perfect for TDKR but he should have been the same build in TDK

Wasn't aware I thought that was a recent pic, even still he wasn't big in pacific rim. His on a pump there (I am aware all actors are on one for shirtless pics) it's a good physique but definitely not Batman level. Batmans
Physique should intimidate he should be big, cut and fast.

He is wearing a t shirt in one scene in Pacific Rim but looks like a really big guy. And as these pictures show, I think the base is there and the dude can train. Put him with Gym Jones for six months and he might achieve a Cavill level physique.

Yeah Bale did not live up to how they present Batman in the comics, just the fittest and most powerful human who is also built and cut like a god. But I think Nolan never placed emphasis on such things, even his Bane was OK built.

Snyder on the other hand really makes sure that his actors physically look the part they are playing and makes sure they achieve the required shape and the movie is capturing their physicality in an appropriate way.

Who ever they case will need to work his butt off like Henry did for Superman... He will need to be on the same level or similar to Superman in terms of physique.

He should be in much better shape than Cavill, after all he operates on the functionality of his body and not the Sun.

Only if you turn it into one, nothing wrong with hetro guys talking about other guys physiques (ever been to a body building forum) and for those not mature enough to discuss this they can stay out and if they refuse I am sure a mod will have a quick word.

Maybe make him look smaller than supes, so we see that his threat to superman is not phisical in nature.

Not sure why Batman needs to be so bulky when he relies on speed, agility rather than pure strength.

Re: Batman physique thread.
 
You can be a lot bigger than that and have speed, agility and strength just look at most professional football players or mma fighters for example.

I thought Bale was too bulky in Batman Begins. He looked good obviously but there is something about how he looked that I didn't like for Batman. Maybe it was that stupid costume adding even more bulk that is threw me off.

Strength will only get you so far in a battle. In a more grounded Man of Steel universe, having more muscle doesnt mean you can take on 5 guys by yourself. The new batman IMO needs to rely heavily on gadgets and brains to come out on top, not just muscle.

Exactly, in this new DC universe Snyder has established, humans can't do **** to any of these super powered beings unless they have a brain and/or really fking high tech gadgets.

Well I never said anything about changing the core of Batman's character I'm talking visual aesthetics here, physique is the look of a body now your getting into something completely off topic.

That and just stating the obvious.

slumcat 07-31-2013 01:11 AM

Re: Batman physique thread.
 
Bale in BB was soft, he was holding a lot of water because the definition was simply not there.

The new Batman should be more along the lines of how Bale was in American Psycho, lighter but more cut up and very quick/agile/flexible.

I think he might make a decent Daredevil if Marvel take a crack at that character again.

Boom! I am here. The gayness is official. :p

I love these threads. Nothing better than a bunch of straight dudes talking about men's bodies.

Also, howdy, ladies!

...This is all I have to contribute.

Oh, other than I think Bats ought to be burlier than Bale was.

I think to contrast with Cavill's Superman physique (which is perfect) Batman should look extremely vascular and even sinewy.

Batman will have a similar physique as Henry in MOS. Zack likes his comic book heores to look like their comic counterparts.

and the bar has been raised by henry in MOS, after it being raised by marvel.

so in short, Batman will be built like a brick house.

Zack will definitely push the actor cast as Batman very hard. This is what he had to say about the physicality he portrays on screen.
Quote:

I like designing male icons I guess that's how it is - fitness icons - that's the real goal. No it's true and I guess I bring it on myself a little bit (to design these icons). It was really important from the beginning. I told Henry, "Listen, you are gonna be wearing this skin tight suit and I want you to look like... you know... a freak... like you should be in crazy shape." And he really said he embraced the concept a 100% because (of) you know the idea that you see the suit and you can see his body underneath it and you think "Oh that's gotta be a rubber suit, right?". (So) then I really wanted to include a scene where he had no shirt on so that you could say, "Wait a minute, that is what's under there".
Batman will join a long line of Snyder heroes - Leonidas, Manhattan, Superman who all were insanely built.

Zorex 08-02-2013 11:25 AM

Re: Batman physique thread.
 
I'm sure Snyder will again look to Mark Twight & Gym Jones to turn the new Batman into shape, along with getting Henry back to where he was. I'm curious, though, if they'll ever have the two train together, or keep them separated? I'm sure it'll depend on the story and how close or at odds the characters are.

slumcat 08-02-2013 12:43 PM

Re: Batman physique thread.
 
Oh they invariably would end up training together. It takes about 6-8 months of training to get where Cavill was at in MOS. And since both Cavill and the Batman actor will be training with Twight & Gym Jones, their training periods will overlap and they will indeed end up training together.

About the competition though, Deborah Snyder the producer indicated that Shannon and Cavill did do some competitive sessions in the gym.

Just because their training periods might overlap doesn't guarantee they'll have training sessions together. Cavill never trained with Shannon or Traue. They were kept separate as a way to further help the training reinforce their characters.

slumcat 08-02-2013 01:48 PM

Re: Batman physique thread.
 
Like I said, Cavill did train with Shannon sometimes.

And Mark Twight has other clients besides Snyder's actors. So he can't spend 2-3 hour with Cavill and 2-3 hours with the Batman actor everyday. If their training is similar he might club them together atleast some of the times.
