Small Details Fans Noticed In DC's Biggest Fight Scenes

List Rules
Vote up the details you never noticed before.

On the big screen, DC Comics has produced blockbuster hits for decades. The Dark Knight Trilogy saw Christopher Nolan's Batman go toe-to-toe with the Joker and Bane. The DC Extended Universe features battles with Wonder Woman's Amazons and the Suicide Squad. All these movies have incredible small details in their fight sequences, and fans online have been quick to point them out. For example, in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne isn't able to square off with Superman solely because of his tech-heavy new suit, but because he studies the Man of Steel's fighting techniques earlier in the movie. In Wonder Woman, watch closely during one of Diana's fights and you'll notice she uses her sword with a bare blade grip. Some of these details even give little nods to other movies. In Birds of Prey, when Harley and company choose their weapons for the final clash, the options available are just like the ones in the infamous pawn shop scene in Pulp Fiction!

Check out this list of small details fans spotted in DC movie fight scenes, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    Bruce Counters Clark's Attacks By Studying In 'Batman v Superman'

    From Redditor u/filthydank_2099:

    In Batman v Superman, Bruce easily blocks Clark’s hooks and uppercuts. Earlier in the film, Bruce can be seen in the Bat Cave watching footage captured during Superman’s fight with Zod from Man of Steel. Clark’s patterns (right hook, left sucker, right uppercut) had been memorized by Bruce.

    'Birds Of Prey' Gives A Nod To 'Pulp Fiction'

    From Redditor u/Arch__Stanton:

    This shelf full of weapons from which Harley chooses a weapon for an ensuing fight in Birds of Prey has a baseball bat, a chainsaw, and a samurai sword lined up together (that might be a hammer next to them but its hard to tell). This is the same selection of weapons shown in this iconic scene in Pulp Fiction where Butch ultimately chooses the sword (which has the same color scheme as the one in Birds of Prey).

    The movie was reportedly heavily inspired by Tarantino films, and even used Fox Force Five as its working title (another Pulp Fiction reference), with Tarantino's blessing.
