    This is interesting. Personally I've always liked the fancy Batman. The Batman who doesn't even try. This is probably my greatest example:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkwDCV41zN8
    Nolan's Batman was little more of a brawler in the shadows. Nothing special.
    Arkham's Batman is way too violent. Batman is gritty and all that, but does he really need to go around breaking limbs? Well, it was a video game.
    The 90's movies I really didn't get a sense of martial arts.
    And the cartoons, was well, cartoons. Just a bunch a punches and kicks.
    What do you think? Any martial art in particular?:batman:

    Ask any martial artist, if you are in a fight engaging multiple enemies, the one you fight doesn't have to rise at the time you go to the next one. Batman have to be vicious, brutal, yet gracefull.

    My recomendation is a mix between Nolan's Keysi animalistic and realistic movements and Arkham's extremely brutality and quickness.

    In other words, Wing Tsun.

    I don't know much about various fighting styles, but I do think that Batman should use a combination of multiple styles and because, like me, most people aren't familiar with these styles they should look sort of obvious and clearly visible in a fight on a movie screen. I mean that I know movie fight scenes can be fast and hard to see, so they would have to take that into consideration. But I think he should be shown to be a master at hand to hand combat. And I agree he should be brutal with his fighting, but not like a Punisher or something, just efficient.

    They need to get some inspiration from the fight scenes in the first Sherlock Holmes with RDJ.

    And I don't want anything over the top, but I definitely wanna see more slomo in the next Batman film. Nothing like Snyder who can overuse slomo, but a healthy amount of slomo

    Sherlock Holmes:

    In the books, Bartitsu

    In the movies, WT

    we need Batman to fight like Donnie Yen fights in the reboot. His suit should allow him to move freely.

    He should fight like in that clip with the scarecrow, and like Sherlock Holmes in the first film, analising the enemies moves every second

    I'd be down for Donnie Yen as choreographer... but more in the style of Flashpoint than Iron Monkey. Not heavy on wire-fu unless it's Batman specifically using the grappling gun, glide cape etc in fighting.

    I also agree with adding an analysis element ala Sherlock Holmes, that was brilliant IMO. That's precisely how I see a seasoned Batman approaching a situation. Maybe without showing the fight before it happens, but have Batman narrate it. In fact, I want that voice over narration from Batman throughout.

    I still say the Bourne franchise set the bar for realistic yet badass fights. You can see the tactics and mastery through the jarring and violent realism.

    Perfect for a respectable and skilled Batman.

    and can we get a Batman reboot sub-forum?

    Haha. "The thug hits, he missed, and I came back with counter. Next one up. He seems confused. I knock him out with one hit."

    Actually now that I've seen the Sherlock Holmes scene, it was very cool. The analytical approach was brilliant. Though I'm not sure if Batman could pull it off.

    I think Batman should use a mix between Judo and Krav Maga, basically doing a lot of work with his hands, and using people's own force against them, like in the comics.

    Or you could just get Gareth Evans to choreograph it.

    Base the combat on the Arkham games

    Donnie Yen fights really well because he is...Donnie Yen :woot:

    The scene in the op is really cool , but very hard to translate to live action.

    They need to hire good action coreographers (aka , asians) , and the actors need to be very agile. Its all about knowing how to compose action ,and how to edit.

    Slo-mo...not the biggest fan. Sherlock fights get old really quick.

    I want his moves to be fast, powerful, and intimidating. I want him to put criminals in so much pain that he gives them something to truly fear. I don't want him to show effort when fighting mobsters, but for his higher-level villains sure.

    I agree with the Bourne or Sherlock Holmes styles or maybe even a combo to the two. I really want to see the fact that Batman sees things many steps ahead. It what keeps him alive.

    Krav Maga is over-rated.

    Why not just judo and boxing, like in the Finger/Kane comics?

    Because cinematic grappling, of the Steven Seagal "break some joints" variety, is a valuable addition to punching and throwing?

    I like that fighting style, and I think when Batman is in a brawl, he should get hit now and then as part of his humanity.

    Agreed, he's not a metahuman.

    I want him to fly from one corner of the room to the other, like in Arkham City. I want him to stun people with his cape and then use his repeated body blow combo like in Arkham City.
