This is worse than my parents’ divorce: Robert Downey Jr. talks some trash about the superhero movie that dethroned Iron Man as the summer hit. You’re tearing me apart!
However, he saves himself from looking like a complete hater with some self-deprecation:
I didn’t understand The Dark Knight. I 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.’ …I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get many things that are so smart.
Yeah, you better pull your punch a little bit, RDJ. Or Christian Bale might come over and start shoving you around.
