I'll get right to it, this is Batman. This is the character from the comics. This is the character from the games. This is the character from Batman: The Animated Series.

If you for whatever unspeakable reason haven't seen the final Batman v Superman trailer, I'd advise you to watch it below.

1. Proper Fighting Styles

Yeah. I think we're getting the brawling Batman that we deserve after years of watching Batman struggle to turn his neck and just kind of stumble his way through a group of guys who fall down on their own. Though what really sells this sequence for me is Bruce uttering the words:

"I'm getting slow in my old age, Alfred."

Bruce, if that was slow, I'd really like to see you in your prime. This also counters any worries that this Batman will be old and tired physically. Sure he's going to be mentally drained, but he will still be in the best condition anyone at 45 could be. Plus, 45 isn't really that old, right?

2. Batarangs Never Left The Utility Belt

Not much to say here. We seen Batman incorporating quite a few different gadgets in this warehouse scene. One of them being the classic weapon of the Caped Crusader.

3. Bruce Wayne's Ingenuity

How did Batman stop that punch? Kryptonite maybe? Or perhaps his armored suit is constructed of Kryptonian materials? Only time will tell, but Batman is definitely smart and Clark just realized that he underestimated a mere mortal.

4. Batman's Mindset

We've seen a lot more of this just recently.

"He has the power to wipe out the entire human race and if we believe there's even a one percent chance that he's our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty!"

Now I've written a more detailed article discussing how this mindset could be evil, but several people have made some great points to the contrary as well. If you want to check out why Bruce Wayne might be evil, click HERE

5. Batman's Brutality

Generally when you slam a man through floor boards, it's not taken as a kind gesture of friendship. Batman is hitting them hard and fast. He doesn't care if they're in comas as long as they're breathing when he leaves. After all, this Batman is older and seasoned. He knows just how far he can take his combat repertoire before he ends up killing anyone.

Well that should do for articles about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice until the film hits theaters in just over a month. Will waiting for March 25th be a grueling process or could you not care less? Let your thoughts be known in the comments below and take care!
