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 DAMN 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.
Really? I see what you mean but that scene doesn't really seem like an example of what you are saying. Batman shows up at the parking garage without saying a word, starts kicking ass, and then says 3 very short and brusque lines to the copy cat vigilantes. All he says is "Don't let me catch you out here again." "I don't need help." and "I'm not wearing hockey pads." He never engages the vigilantes in the substance of what they are talking about. He simply brushes aside their argument with the handwave of "I'm not wearing hockey pads." Despite how much grief that line gets for being a Goyer-ism, I always thought it was perfectly dry and sarcastic and evasive in the manner of BTAS Batman.
