‘Batman V Superman’ Choreographer Promises Epic Showdown

Fight choreographer Guillermo Grispo promises that fans won’t be disappointed by the superhero showdown in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug,” Grispo, whose credits include Kingsmen: The Secret Service and The Legend of Hercules, told Los Andes Diario. “But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there’s a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a firsthand confrontation, though it seems to be totally to Batman’s disadvantage.”

He explained that he wanted to approach the film’s fights from a more technical angle than director Christopher Nolan in his Dark Knight trilogy. “Now Batman is going to fight the way I’ve always dreamed seeing him fight,” Grispo said. “He’s a character so prepared in martial arts that you can do a lot of things with him, but filmmakers usually don’t go all the way with it. Even in the last Nolan movies the action scenes aren’t very good from a technical, martial arts point of view to things like choreography, filming, bad camera movements …

“Don’t get me wrong, Nolan is great, my hat’s off to him … but I think that he did not pay too much attention to the fights,” Grispo continued. “Those are the kind of details that Zack, being so physical himself, loves preparing. I think there’s going to be a big difference when you see these Batman fights in comparison to the previous ones.”

Opening March 25, 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot and Laurence Fishburne.

    That’s the best thing I’ve heard about this film so far. I don’t think there has been a movie yet that has gotten Batman’s fighting skills right.

  • Lyle

    I can agree with that. I also wish that some future Batman film would focus on his detective skills as well

  • Edensuko

    Truth.

  • mel

    He’s used his detective skills. In the ’89 movie he discovered the formula to Joker’s chemical. In the Dark Knight he did some csi work with the bullet. It’s there, it’s just not full on Sherlock Holmes.

    Won’t Superman just break Batman’s neck if he gets too difficult to handle?

  • TheBatman2012

    I’m more worried about the story. Nolan can’t direct fight scenes but his movies are held in such high regard because of the story.

    This movie will not fare will with the critics.

    Yeah, and that’s what kind of sucks. Batman should be a full-on detective character, because he is the World’s Greatest Detective. He’s got to be something along the lines of the Batman: The Animated Series Batman, in that he’s good at everything.

    I disagree that Nolan can’t direct fight scenes. His Batman was more grounded, more realistic. The extreme close ups in Begins were a stylistic choice to show what it would be like to fight Batman. And, let’s not forget, the incredible chase sequence in The Dark Knight when Batman foils Joker’s plot to snatch Harvey Dent from the armored vehicle. I fear that what we will get from Snyder is more of the same green screened, extreme overuse of slow motion, and over all fake looking fight scenes. I would much rather watch a Nolan film than a Snyder film. Calling out Nolan when your director is Zack Snyder and your Batman is Ben Affleck? Please. It might be more “fun” to look at, but nothing that Snyder’s ADD brain can come up with will ever top that chase scene in TDK. Of that, I’m absolutely positive.

    And, I liked 300 and Watchmen for what they were, but they don’t hold a candle to Nolan’s Batman films or any Nolan film, for that matter. Stop comparing this to TDK because we all know that Nolan is actually a serious filmmaker whereas Snyder isn’t. Can’t they just make their own movie and not worry about Nolan? Smh.
