Saddam basically nailed it. The Dark Knight trilogy had better fights story-wise, but they were really...really...boring most of the time. BvS pulled off the first badass actual Batman-like fight scene, and that's why it's exciting. Plus, yeah, that choreography. Idk, I guess I just really appreciate choreography as an art as well. Just like a dance doesn't need to have tension to be awesome and/or beautiful.

I'm not disputing that it was well choreographed, but  when Batman can shrug off bullets and isn't adverse to murder, I have to wonder what the point o the fight scene is. Why not just walk in the front door with a machine-gun?

I think that the scene perfectly encapsulates BvS - stylish but unnecessary.

The point of the fight scene is the god-damn Batman being god-damn awesome, duh.

Almost all live-action Batman fight scenes are pretty bad, to be honest.  My personal favorite is the one at the climax of the first Burtman:



He's getting his ass handed to him by a guy who looks like Ray Charles.  Fucking Ray Charles!  And that dive from the bell, only to be caught and flung into the staircase, is just embarrassing.  Come on, Batman, up your game!  His eventual victory (by murder, no less) feels more like a stroke of luck than any kind of strategy paying off.

Nolan Batman fight scenes are embarrasing. Slow and stiff movements.

Even if that were true, at least they had more than 5 minutes of decent film for every 2.5 hours of screenplay.

Not compared to BvS. They're like Shakespeare in comparison.

I know this sounds nitpicky at this point, but I really hope they don't make Bruce super light and wisecracky. He's a p. stoic person with a dry sense of humour.

I already posted that trailer, months ago. >o<  But now that we're talking about it again, it seems like a good time to post a video criticizing Snyder's directorial style:



He's right that the tone wasn't BvS's biggest problem, but I think that a lighter feel might discourage Snyder from prioritizing epic moments and visual awe.  In other news, Harley movie, discuss.

Terrible. End of discussion.

I don't think they'll do that.  They demonstrated some decent dry humor in the scenes between Alfred and Bruce, so it makes sense they'd keep to that tone.

From the latter article:

Quote from: Ben Affleck
He's a great villain because—I just had an instinctive feeling that he would match up with him well. You know, I'm a big admirer of that character as well, especially in the New 52 the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work.

Very descriptive.  Well, he wouldn't necessarily have been my choice of villain, but hopefully they'll make it work.  There are at least two major advantages to going with Deathstroke - it's extremely unlikely that he'll be reinvented as a hammy ripoff of the Joker the way Lex was, and it's also extremely unlikely that the climax will revolve around a dull portal/energy beam of destruction or whatever.
