Apparently Robert Downey Jr. had some not so complimentary words to say about The Dark Knight and D.C. Comics in general. I generally never bought into that Marvel vs. D.C. debate. While I used to read more Marvel than D.C., I had my favorites in both and for various reasons. Given that I think Downey's comments rather unfortunate, overall, because imo any successful transformation of the media (comic book super heroes) to the silver screen is of benefit to the artform as a whole. And I have a sneaking suspicion that "Stan the Man" would be inclined to agree. Besides which, had the comment come from an impartial party it'd carry more weight for me. But considering it came from the actor whose own movie was eclipsed by the greater (box office) success of the latter, it comes off as so much "sour grapes", imo. Still, I'll try not to let my disdain of the comment interfere with my enjoyment of the next Iron Man, nor allow it to cause me to become overly "picayunish" about Downey's own performance.
