Batman’s fist fight with Parademons
Another reason I admire Batfleck is because of his filthy, relentlessly brutal fighting style, with which he turned Lex Luther’s thugs into mince in the Batman vs Superman camp scene – well worth the price of admission alone. Despite this glorious sequence, I was really surprised to see Batman engage in hand-to-hand combat with Parademons in Zack Snyder’s Justice League – worth the price of an HBO Max subscription alone.
As soon as the Justice League finds Steppenwolf under Gotham Harbor, who is interrogating cyborg’s father Silas Stone (Joe Morton), they quickly intervene. Cyborg and Flash help hostages escape, while Wonder Woman (a goddess) takes over Steppenwolf with her shield, sword and lasso as Batman (technically human) fights some Parademons mainly with his fists. Before telling Alfred (Jeremy Irons) to send the Knightcrawler after it takes some damage, it holds up damn well against the winged, otherworldly beasts and without much faith in its supply belt.
