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

Unless its a huge crowd of people running at him at once (in which case he should use a flash bang or some other gadget), or a villain such as Bane, Deathstroke or Ra's, Batman shouldn't have any trouble disposing of a criminal(s). Quick and Easy with extreme, but not fatal, prejudice.

Lastly, Batman needs to be a mute. My BIGGEST issue with all of the post Burton films is that Batman talks TOO D*** MUCH. Seriously, shut up. Batman does not talk to criminals unless he's interrogating them.

The "I'm not wearing hockey pads" convo in TDK, and His and Robin's back and forth in B & R was SO annoying.

Seriously Batman, just shut up.

The best Batman is one that is silent and plays up the "supernatural" side of the Batman facade and strikes fear.
To me, the fighting, like everything else, should be scary.

That's why I think, in film, Batman should focus on attacking from behind with restraining moves, and THEN getting all martial artsy when/if thugs get defensive.

IMHO, I think that the stealth takedowns in the Arkham games are more intimidating then watching fists and legs fly around
