Mickey Rourke has made it no secret that he's not a fan of Marvel Studios after his Iron Man 2 villain role as Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash... or Crimson Dynamo, somehow became "one-dimensional" during the editing process. In fact, the veteran actor has even said director Jon Favreau didn't have any balls, when it came to the finished product, which received mixed reviews, and how a lot of his scenes were cut possibly due to all the Avengers build-up. Well, Rourke recently stopped by NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers show where he promoted the upcoming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For and, quite briefly, further expressed his hatred for Marvel Studios. The bashing began when the host suggested the actor had said he wasn't a comic book fan, to which Mickey corrected, "I'm not a Marvel fan." But is he a DC guy? "I don't know what that means," Rourke admitted, laughing. "I'm a Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller fan," he clarified, as for what made him join Sin City. "Once I did a movie for Marvel and they cut the whole f#cking thing out." What do you think?

Whoa, I didn't even know he hated them in the first place.

I get the feeling there's a lot of people Rourke hates though.

I always liked Rourke, he just doesn't give a damn.

Marvel fanboy security is about to damage control super hard.

@MrBlackjack I think you're right. I mean, I can respect why he would be annoyed that things got cut out, but he doesn't exactly seem like he gets along with people well.

Well... I guess he won't be invited to Kevin Feige's Christmas party!

Whats the story behind this hate of his?
TheAstoundingMan - 8/14/2014, 9:28 PM
I don't blame him for feeling bitter. Marvel really needs to let their villains have a little more time in the limelight, or at least mix things up a little.

Ronan was cool and all, but I hope he's the last 'deranged maniac' we see for a while.

In all fairness, Rourke is responsible for the popcorn trick....
