International acclaimed actor Ben Affleck stars in the long-awaited movie "Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice" and said in an interview that his character's fighting style is inspired by Conor McGregor. In an interview with Reuters, the Oscar-winning actor starring as Bruce Wayne - and his alter ego Batman - mentioned how the action fighting scenes were inspired by one of the current UFC champions.
"It is a little bit more of a brawler, more physical. You kinda get the feeling of a more physical, visceral, slugger thing," Affleck said. "The fights are more smash mouth, UFC influenced Conor McGregor style.”
Several different actors and celebrities have expressed their fascination with McGregor's unique style. Now we'll get to see a flash of that on the big screen, as Affleck brings McGregor's style to the action scenes and physical skills of the Batman character.
