Looks like Robert ‘Iron Man’ Downey Jr was not a fan of a certain comic book film that has probably made more money than his latest franchise.
Whilst promoting new comedy flick, Topic Thunder – where he plays an actor who plays a black solider, Downey Jr made his feelings quite clear on what he thought of The Dark Knight, and DC Comics:
"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**k DC comics. That's all I have to say and that's where I'm really coming from."
Let’s hope that Downey Jr will not be any DC Comic adaptations in the near future.
