Mickey Rourke Criticizes Marvel Studios For "Breaking Jon Favreau's Balls" And More!

Talking at a junket for Immortals earlier today, Mickey Rourke (who played Whiplash in 2010's Iron Man 2) has let rip at Marvel Studios for how they edited his performance and treated director Jon Favreau...

Superhero Hype caught up with Mickey Rourke earlier today, and while discussing his villainous role in Immortals, he had a few things to say about his time working with Jon Favreau and Marvel Studios on Iron Man 2. Now, I definitely remember reports of the actor heading on over to Russian prisons to research the role and there being some talk in the past of not all of his material making the final cut, but it would appear that it was a lot more than we ever realized!

"I try to find the moments where [the villian is] not that cliched, evil bad guy and it's a big fight. I had it on 'Iron Man' and they won. It was going to work for Marvel and them breaking [Jon] Favreau's balls and wanting just a one-dimensional villain. The performance and all the things that I tried to bring to it end up on the f--ing floor. That can cause you not to care as much. To not to want to put that effort in to try and make it an intelligent bad guy or a bad guy who is justified in what his reasons are."


This isn't the first time Marvel Studios have fallen out with an actor in one of their productions. Ed Norton disagreed with the way they handled The Incredible Hulk and his role as Bruce Banner was later given to Mark Ruffalo for 2012's The Avengers. Terrence Howard was replaced by Don Cheadle because he wanted more money. While we don't know the full details behind any of these fall outs, I guess we can add Mickey Rourke to the list of actors who won't be working with the studio again in future! How do you guys feel about his comments? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
