Since Zack Snyder's Justice League is in the news this week, it is only right to show some love to the DC Universe. While Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice had its flaws, there quite a few great moments throughout the film, and if you really want to appreciate the film, I recommend you watch the ultimate edition versus the standard version.
While the fight with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday was an easy pick, I really wanted to showcase Batman's fight in the warehouse to rescue Martha Kent. The fight choreography for this scene was top-notch and truly showcased Batman's fighting prowess against multiple combatants. It felt like a scene from one of the Arkham games come to life. Best of all was that the henchman coordinated their attacks, and it was not an endless one-on-one fight. I think it added to the fight's realism and didn't make it totally one-sided in Batman's favor.
I also appreciate that the henchman holding Martha hostage was Anatoli Knyazev (Callan Mulvey), a longtime Batman villain known in the comics as KG Beast. Knayasev was also a friend and rival of Oliver Queen / Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) in the CW Series Arrow portrayed by David Nykl.
You can see Ben Affleck's Batman in action in Zack Snyder's Justice League currently airing on HBO Max. If you don't have HBO Max, you can pick up Zack Snyder's Justice League on Blu-ray in May.
