According to Latino-Review, Guillermo Grispo, fight choreographer for upcoming superhero movie, Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice, recently spoke with Los Andes Diario’s Estilo section to talk about the movie and the big fight scene between DC’s two crime-fighting titans, Batman & Superman. Grispo was asked what it was like preparing the fights for the movie, to which he answered:
“I was fascinated. I’m telling you, for me, I like both of the characters, but Batman I really love. In 2007 I almost worked on the second part of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, but ultimately questions about the contract were not resolved and my world collapsed. Luckily, afterwards, Zack brought Batman into this project, making it an origin of the Justice League. Which means being in charge of the entire franchise and all the sequels that will be Zack’s next projects.”
Grispo goes on to talk about how great it is to work with Directo Zack Snyder once again & then goes into more detail on what we should expect from the big battle:
“Look, at Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie. It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson.
There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the other [Superman] will squash him like a bug. 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.”
The fight choreographer went on to talk about how Batman will be using a different fighting style in the movie compared to past Batman movies, saying:
“Now Batman is going to fight the way I’ve always dreamed seeing him fight… 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…
But hey, don’t get me wrong, Nolan is great, my hats off to him. He makes fascinating stories, but I think that he did not pay too much attention to the fights. 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.”
