Robert Downey Jr. Doesn’t Get ‘The Dark Knight’, Says ‘F*ck DC Comics’

Robert Downey JrHe was the man behind the Iron Man mask earlier this summer, easily the second biggest comic book movie adaptation of the year. The role has obviously given Robert Downey Jr. some credibility once again, but his recent comments about Iron Man‘s comic book movie rival The Dark Knight might lose him some of it.

Whether he’s just trying to make a splash or publicize the fact that he’s stupid, Downey has come out and given The Dark Knight and DC Comics one of the biggest shots across the bow I’ve seen in awhile.

“My whole thing is that that I saw ‘The Dark Knight’. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I’m like, ‘That’s not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.’ I loved ‘The Prestige’ but didn’t understand ‘The Dark Knight’. Didn’t get it, still can’t tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I’m like, ‘I get it. This is so high brow and so f–king smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.’ You know what? F-ck DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”


You can check out the full article over at MovieHole, where Downey looks back at Iron Man, and the upcoming Tropical Thunder. Either way, let the Marvel vs. DC war begin anew!
