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

Looks like Jeff Imada should be on Snyder's list ( I had forgotten his

Damon Caro did the choreography for 300 and Watchmen, and apparently had an uncredited fight/stunt role on Bourne ultimatum - interestingly he also worked on Man of Steel, so maybe he'll have a role in developing Superman's fighting style, as well as the Dark Knight's.

Either way, it would be hard to see Batman not incorporating some Kali or
other FMA into his fighting style. You guys will have to look for signature moves when the film comes out.

I do hope they keep the use of headbutts, elbows and hammer-fist from Nolan's trilogy. While not really a fast technique the hammer-fist is underused and works well as a finishing technique as well as a pre-emptive first strike at close range, or a spinning technique.

The question is, which other techniques best suit Batfleck's physique?

he's tall (probably 6'3" or 6'4" In costume) but of lean muscular build,
not really bulky, but probably still too big to pull off the agility of
Tony Jaa/Donnie Yen/Scott Adkins.
