The actor playing Foley/Nixon in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, has some VERY strong words for Marvel's The Avengers. "Batman would tear off Iron Man's head and sh#* down his neck."

Yep. This Moive is going to Rock anyone's socks off.

What a hater. That "kids flick" just grossed over $1 Billion worldwide asshole.
R888 - 5/13/2012, 6:11 PM
Why because the avengers reach 1 billion you mad hater
SageMode - 5/13/2012, 6:12 PM
Lmao. Is he serious? Or just plain delusional?
Misterfan - 5/13/2012, 6:12 PM
shit's about to hit the fan
TheGambitFreak - 5/13/2012, 6:12 PM
Overeaction much? Lol, not being a fanboy, I'm just being fair, Iron Man would kick Bats ass, big time, but thats irrelevant, this guy is over line, lol!

weapon925 - 5/13/2012, 6:13 PM
Good job trolling, Mat.
MrE - 5/13/2012, 6:16 PM
I didn't realize I had to hate one movie and love the other. I was kinda looking forward to both. Oh well, since I already love Avengers, I guess I'll have to hate TDKR.

Getting old.
ComicsCommando - 5/13/2012, 6:16 PM
It's funny how he mentions Catwoman's high kicks and motorbikes, then asks what's Scarlett got. If you saw the movie you'd know that Widow kicked PLENTY of ass. I'm sure Catwoman's going to kick ass as well but for him to not acknowledge that is just childish.
DaenerysTargaryen - 5/13/2012, 6:16 PM I'm happy he gets hit by the tumbler
JDUKE25 - 5/13/2012, 6:17 PM
In a match with no prep, Iron Man. With prep, Bats.

Saw Avengers again today. My grandmother came with us. Needless to say, she didn't care much for it lol.

Banner - 5/13/2012, 6:17 PM
Marvels the Avengers needs 6 heroes to reach 1 billion, but DC needs only 1 hero to reach 1 billion and thats Batman... TDK FTW!!!
TheGambitFreak - 5/13/2012, 6:18 PM

Anne Hathaway @ Rachel Getting Married Premiere

Unlike all the Batman haters out here, Matthew Modine was in the movie, also its likely that TDKR will more than just a CBM. Avengers did good and if a simple movie like Avengers gets that amount of money then it deserves everything it gets, but fanboys needs to chill, because at the end the money goes to the studios and not to the so called fans.
ComicsCommando - 5/13/2012, 6:19 PM
Yep... I'd say the name suits you quite well, dick.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/13/2012, 6:19 PM
Wow stop giving this movie a bad reputation d-bag.
prettynuclear2 - 5/13/2012, 6:20 PM
This dude is right about one thing: avengers is straight fantasy. The main draw was the action bits.
TheProfessional - 5/13/2012, 6:20 PM
Wow, looks like theres a nolanite starring in the movie.

If he's serious, then modine seems like a douche.
If the president of marvel can admit that he's super excited for TDKR,
and an actor who is staring in only ONE batman film is talking shit,
That shows alot about him as a person.
Oxbow - 5/13/2012, 6:20 PM
Childish...This is NOT Lakers vs. Knicks! We're all on the same team, remember? It's the worst when someone involved with the movies does this, bc then all the bottom-dwellers on the internet think it's ok to act like this too!!!
Banner - 5/13/2012, 6:21 PM
TDKR will be great but I doubt it will bring down the Avengers box office haul though. :P
SmellofDuty - 5/13/2012, 6:21 PM
Go Modine! I just disagree with the comment on The Avengers onky being for kids. Good for everybody! But THE FIRE RISES!
Knightrider - 5/13/2012, 6:21 PM
Why, why and why I love the Batman film series, I loved the Avengers, why did he have to light the match to the arguments all over again.

They are both good films, we don't have to choose people, we can like what we want, without having to hate on something else.

WorldsGreatestdetective - 5/13/2012, 6:21 PM
Haha Bad Ass. It was a bit fanboyish but entertaining
Tajin88 - 5/13/2012, 6:22 PM
@JDUKE25- Thats cool, that scene from xmen first class was the best and the pic you posted is just great LOL.
JDUKE25 - 5/13/2012, 6:22 PM
Personally, I think TDKR will be better story-wise, and I think I'll like it more. That type of movie is just something I prefer over something like Avengers, which I've seen twice. But there's no way TDKR is making more money than Avengers.
GodzillaKart - 5/13/2012, 6:22 PM
"batman would tear off ironman's head and shit down his neck. well, actually B. Wayne wouldn't, because he's got real class."

Too bad you don't, Mr. Modine.
Coloso - 5/13/2012, 6:23 PM
Modine is a nolanite, ha ha!

Sanderman - 5/13/2012, 6:24 PM
well there goes my respect for the guy
TheGambitFreak - 5/13/2012, 6:24 PM
I'm sorry, I don't mean to troll But do any of you really expect Bats to beat Iron Man? Really? I know the enviroment plays a big part in it (As do all fights) but just about anywhere they would battle, a uni-beam is all it would take, just sayin'.

Banner - 5/13/2012, 6:24 PM
@ComicsCommando, yep I'm a real dick and if you can't get over my comment which is true then go F yourself.
Knightrider - 5/13/2012, 6:24 PM
@Godzilla Very well put, how unclassy is that. However I think it should be stressed that this is one guy, and everyone who was involved in this movie should not be paired with the same brush.

I think he got a little bit carried away, and should be said the likes of Bale, Nolan etc have been doing the normal interviews and have seemingly shown great respect towards the Avengers

A nolanite in a nolan movie
marvel72 - 5/13/2012, 6:28 PM
what a prick,you didn't hear the cast of the avengers dissing the dark knight rises.

whedon & fiege actually praised batman begins & the dark knight.
Redhood10 - 5/13/2012, 6:29 PM
First of all its good for the movie business that both movies do well. However batman is the weakest of the justice league and ironman would shit on batman. If the joker in TDK can sit on batman, (at the end) and he is a terrible fighter, then the hulk would rip his limbs off and say puny rodent.
Knightrider - 5/13/2012, 6:31 PM
Hopefully he gets a bit of a rollocking from someone in the WB/DC ranks, that is silly and un-called for.

Do I think TDKR or for that matter TDK was for me a better film than Avengers, but can you compare them no, not really. Besides when I say I prefer TDK over Avengers I am saying I gave TDK 9.75 out of 10 and Avengers 9.5 out of 10.
JMESS - 5/13/2012, 6:31 PM
whoa whoa whoa you cant compare the 2, thats like comparing a pig to a hot chick named scarlett!
batman rules tho, Ill take him over any other super hero period !
ComicsCommando - 5/13/2012, 6:32 PM

Get over your comment? Don't flatter yourself, kid. Your childish statement was nothing to me, and the fact that you think that it made some sort of impact is hilarious. Want to make a real impact? Get your head out of your ass and realize that this isn't a contest between movies, you immature little twat.
