Pub quiz questions are always stupidly difficult for me because the things that people see as common knowledge often completely pass me by. Ask me about MMA or something and I’ll (usually) hit you with my knowledge but I couldn’t tell you things like how many number one singles Justin Timberlake has had as a solo artist. That knowledge just isn’t inside my head. I did hear a question recently that I would have answered in a heartbeat however – “name all actors who have played Batman in a movie.” I’ll leave it to you to answer that one. I’m sure you can.
I’m pretty sure Anderson Silva would have no problems answering that either, since Batman is reportedly his second favorite superhero, after Spiderman obviously. I think more fighters are influenced by superheros than they let on. We know about John Dodson who pretty much wants to be a character in DragonBall Z, but are there any other fighters out there who are openly massive superhero fans? Let me know in the comments below, once you’ve watched this video of Anderson Silva talking about why he is so happy right now, and why he thinks Ben Affleck will make a good Batman.
