Default Re: Batman's fighting style - new Batman, what should his fighting style be like ?

I was waiting for one in MOS, as well.

You see, the slo-mo needs to be used as a tool and not a crutch. When 80% of your film is in slow motion, it stops being cool. It becomes "normal", almost like watching a movie with no slo-mo. The best way to use it is almost like a punctuation mark. Imagine during the final act of this Superman/Batman film, once Batman and Supes are finally working together, we get an epic slow motion shot of the two of them performing a joint takedown or something.

I'll be there... around every corner, in every empty room, as inevitable as your guilty conscience...
