Hey, Mickey Rourke... F**K YOU!

Hey, Mickey Rourke... F**K YOU!

...but you may have a point.

First of all, let me get this off my chest: Hey, Mickey Rourke, Fuck you, you fucking weird looking plastic surgery botch-job, you half a friggin monster. What happened to your face after Rumblefish? You look like Dr. Erskine injected a bad batch of Super Soldier serum into your cheeks and lips. Immortals is a bigger failure than Iron Man 2 and no amount of 'layers' you thought you put into yet another bad guy role is going to change that. Don't you dare slander the Marvel name because you were in a mediocre movie. I'm sorry they scrapped some of your scenes, but Mickey, it's only a 2 hour movie. They have to edit, guy. Did you really have some hang-your-head-out-of-the-police car scene like Ledger that got scrapped? Not likely. Anyway, I am sure if you'd a died, they would have included more of your stellar performance. Really.

Ok, ahem, I digress, now Mickey, all ranting aside, I want you to know that I really am one of your biggest fans. I mean 'Rumblefish', 'Sin City', 'The Wrestler' were terrific movies. I thought you were even good in Iron Man 2; hell, I was scared of your Russian ass. But Mickey, you struck a nerve when you started disrespecting Marvel. I know Marvel has problems, but you have to understand one thing: I can call my momma a bitch, but don't you call my momma bitch, you know? The damn thing is, though, I think it hurt so much because...well, what you said is true.

mickey rourke iron man Pictures, Images and PhotosMarvel does have a deep history of making below average to horrible movies. Yes, I'm talking about Daredevil and Elektra; and, yes, I'm talking about three failed Punisher movies; and, yes, I'm talking about the butchering of Wolverine; but it is more than that. I don't now if all of the fanboys on here are ready to admit it, because we are all so stoked to see our favorite characters on-screen, but there is one fact that haunts me: The majority of Marvel movies, including Thor, Captain America, and X-Men, have been mediocre at best (Iron Man being the exception). True, there have been glimpses of something special, but there have been no groundbreaking, jaw-dropping things going on like when Matrix or Sin City came out, or when Dark Knight Returns took comic book movies to a new level. Now, what Marvel is doing with The Avengers and the lead up to the The Avengers is groundbreaking, don't get me wrong, but there is a lot of expectations with this movie, and I will admit that I am a little nervous about them pulling it off. Maybe that's why I am letting Rourke get to me. Avengers is Marvel's chance to do something spectacular and I pray that he is wrong and that Avengers is not some science fiction 'Marvel piece of crap'. And oh yeah, Rourke--fuck you for saying that.

Funny, good stuff dude..but, he meant some Marvel [studios] piece of crap...which only includes both Iron Men, Incredible Hulk, Cap and Thor!

Reading this article may have killed more of my brain cells than watching all three "Jackass" films...
golden123 - 11/16/2011, 1:26 PM
Isn't this a repost. I saw this same editorial a couple of days ago. This is a repost. I bet the first one was deleted. So was this meant to be a joke? Also, what exactly are you trying to get at. I grasped that you think Mickey Rourke is an idiot, for disrespecting Marvel, and correct, for stating the truth, at the same time. Ok, how far off am I?

What in the world?
venkman9993592 - 11/16/2011, 1:31 PM
REALLY ghostt?? Is this really an opinion worth expressing? Do we really want to live in a world where someone is cussed out for telling the truth about their employment and the quality of art. Even you said what he was saying was true. Would you rather studios keep making poor choices and have everyone shut up so they can continue screwing up? sounds like it

lol Dude. Their minds are made up. They'll do the same thing to RDJ when he says something less than flattering about MARVEL.

Nice try though.

Remember, kids; you can say what you want, flame all you like, troll til your hearts content and talk as much shit as you like about anything and anyone. However, we will not extend this privilege to celebrates. Any celeb caught expressing his or her feeling about something will be cast out of the GeekNerdium, never to return.

mavrekmcee - 11/16/2011, 2:13 PM
@NeoBaggins.... Exactly. Nerds and fanboys love to bitch and moan and act as if they somehow have the qualifactions to make a hollywood blockbuster and point every thing they hate above cmbs but as soon as someone who is actually in the industry and who has tons more qualifactions than most fanboys forms an opinion he or she should be shit on. Sounds like Fox news mentality.
ecksmanfan - 11/16/2011, 2:22 PM
Someone took a major piddle in Mickey's cheerios. Oh well, not every has a perfect experience while making films and he obviously didn't enjoy his time with Marvel and company. As long as he gets his ass in line for another Sin City, I will be happy.
plasticman - 11/16/2011, 2:26 PM
@ Gusto- I get it. Make mine DC!!! I enjoy spending my Friday or Saturday night watchign such cinema classics like Batman and Robin, Superman 4, and Jonah Hex.
darkness - 11/16/2011, 2:32 PM
screw you!!! kick me off if you want!!! mickey rourke is right! they didn't utelize his talent for the film! marvel is a gas bag that needs to be burst!!!the spiderman movies sucked, captain america...was ok at best! hulk...wheres lou when you need him?!don't pick on rourke...i'll come out swinging!!!
Ryguy88 - 11/16/2011, 2:35 PM
Haha, good stuff! I mean, I agree with Rourke that Marvel studios isn't as interested in making high-quality films as much as they are in selling happy meals and lunch boxes but good stuff none the less.
level1paladin - 11/16/2011, 2:49 PM
You summed up my feelings here.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 3:00 PM
I like how you structured this...like a fan letter.

Rourke makes good points, but strangely he comes across like a little kid with his mom standing in line at the bank behind a guy with a gigantic wart on his forehead and says out loud, "Mommy, want's that ugly thing on that man's face?"

Just gotta be mature enough to know when to keep your mouth shut.
Treebeard - 11/16/2011, 3:04 PM
how. the. [frick]. does this shit make front page? who did Ghostt have to suck off?
LoudLon - 11/16/2011, 3:12 PM
I don't know the author of this article, or anything about him/her, but this is proof that the internet does have its faults -- namely, that any old schmoe with a 'net connection and a keyboard believes him/herself entitled to rattle on about shit that nobody cares to hear.

What the hell is this doing on the front page? C'mon, CBM.com. Let's try and be a cut above, huh?
CyberBishop - 11/16/2011, 3:14 PM
wah wah wah..
PaulRom - 11/16/2011, 3:18 PM
Not to be whining, but I have no idea how this made main.
headlopper - 11/16/2011, 3:28 PM
People complaining about this making the main page need to chill.
It's good that the editor's post a variety of contributions on the main page.
Not everything that makes it there is Pulitzer Prize stuff, I know, but whatever. The articles posted there are at the bottom within in a few hours anyhow.(depending on the amount of other posts).
The article has merit.
ecksmanfan - 11/16/2011, 3:37 PM
@wolverinesfury- LMAO! I love that P&T clip.
Ranger14 - 11/16/2011, 3:38 PM
I still don't get all the complaints about IM2. Yes, it wasn't a great movie, but it was a very good and entertaining movie. Much better than many other CBM films, in my opinion.
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 11/16/2011, 3:41 PM

first off the Dark Knight Returns didn't take CBM's to another level b/c there was never a movie called DARK KNIGHT RETURNS....maybe The Dark Knight

second Thor, Capt America and X-Men movies (ignoring The Last Stand and Wolverine) MEDIOCRE??

the only argument here is that Mickey Rourke should've been Ivan Vanko AKA Crimson Dynamo and not Ivan Vanko AKA Whiplash....Marvel DID in fact FAWK UP so Mickey Rourke is right for bashing Marvel. and Don Cheadle as James Rhodes? wtf Marvel?
MatchesMalone1989 - 11/16/2011, 3:58 PM
Hey you [frick]ing punks. I came over to my friend MatchesMalone1989's house and saw this site for the first time. I'm here laughing at the fact the a man wrote all this about me. Do you want me to unzip my pants so you can start sucking my cock you little douchebag. Anyway I'm going to be hanging out with some big tit girls and my friend here. Have fun jerking off to porn GEEK.

shadearts - 11/16/2011, 4:16 PM
Ok yeah Iron Man 2 wasnt that great and most of marvel movies havent been spectacular but guest what DC is in the same boat DC been making movies since the 70'S and Marvel in the late 90's and i am talking about high budget movies when people talking about the awesome movies Dc make they are talking really about Superman 1&2, Batman begins(maybe)and really the Dark Knight complain all you want Dc shouldve giving us The Dark Knight aleast 20 years ago almost all of Marvel movies are better then tim burtons batmans so my point is giving the time Dc has had with there movies Marvel is on track to surpassing Dc quickly and Mickey Rourke your mad because u wanted the movie about you the villians its about the hero against them ...and also IronMan 2 is better than all of dc movies with the exception of four of DC movies
kevshardlemonade - 11/16/2011, 4:21 PM
How come its uncool to criticize Marvel who have made many many dick moves yet its "cool" to take shots at Nolan who does indeed have way more integrity than Marvel and has made better CBMs.
Luminus - 11/16/2011, 4:31 PM
Marvel didn't make Daredevil, Elektra, the Punisher movies, The X-men movies, or Wolverine. Also, X-Men 2 and X-Men: First Class were NOT mediocre and Fassbender 's performance as Magneto in First Class was phenomenal and better than Ian's. Article fail.
manymade1 - 11/16/2011, 4:31 PM
No offense but you do realize he was criticizing Marvel Studious right?(Meaning Daredevil, X-Men, and Punisher aren't included)
Xtroid - 11/16/2011, 4:35 PM
What a silly rant.
NeoBaggins - 11/16/2011, 4:44 PM
@mavrekmcee Agreed. The lack of integrity is the most alarming though. He makes some valid points, but it's a shame that some would ignore those pointa and lash out because he shitted on their favorite comic company.

He was there, filming. His experience is his own and his accounts are far more credible than message board speculation. I respect him for speaking freely. Why should celebs be held to some ridiculous standard that we don't even adhere to ourselves.

Rourke is doing what everyone does.
chuckg313 - 11/16/2011, 4:51 PM
agreed LordDeathMan....agreed
ArtisticErotic - 11/16/2011, 4:54 PM
Marvel movies are ok for what they are but nothing more. I love Captain America and Ironman 1, but the rest are not anything amazing or earth shattering.

Fans have become spoiled and don't realize that years ago people looked down on comic books as a joke and still do to this day.

Now that Hollywood has taken a liking to the superhero genre, everyone is putting these companies up to high of a pedestal.
NeoBaggins - 11/16/2011, 5:02 PM
@LordDeathMan Very good points made, sir. Very good.
eatmyhit - 11/16/2011, 5:10 PM
@LordDeathMan You forgot the love intrest who for some reason they get torn away from!! But agreed...
