Robert Downey Jr. recently saw “The Dark Knight” himself, and he surprisingly enough is not a fan of the film, he has some harsh words to say about Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” film…read here:
Which apparently was not the case with the other big summer movie “The Dark Knight”. “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.”
When he says, “they need to make him the badguy”, I think we all know he’s referring to Heath Ledger’s Joker although he doesn’t say it in the interview. I think what Robert means is that he wants the Joker in the new film, be more evil and intense, not being all happy and laughing.

Look like Robert is definitely more of a Marvel fan than DC Comics.
