Ten years later, Mickey Rourke’s grudge in opposition to Marvel films roils on.
In an unprompted appraisal of the legendary procedural franchise “Law & Order,” Rourke recommended the “meticulous” and “amazing” work by “Special Victims Unit” actors — particularly the solid members who starred in seasons that first aired a decade or extra in the past. And it seems the 68-year-old actor’s evaluation got here to him after having by no means heard of the collection till the present season, its 22nd.
“Mariska Hargitay … is a very concentrated actress,” Rourke wrote on Instagram Sunday, with many fascinating spelling and punctuation selections. “She is absolutely great in every episode. Her dedication and very meticulous work put her on another level. There’s very few … actresses in films these days that can hold her jock strap. I give her tremendous respect for her amazing ability.”
Rourke’s reward for the others adopted: “Christopher Meloni … the man brings a lot to the table with his physicality … knowing that he had a high level football background explaining it all.”
He continued, “I also took notice to the classy and highly talented intense Stephanie March … as well as BD Wong.”
Finally, he’s “most surprised, tremendously impressed with the charisma,the attitude and swag and senserity that [Ice-T] brings to his particular role.”
Before concluding his overview, the “Wrestler” star managed to strong-arm a jab on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“What’s especially enjoying is watching commodity of this exceptional group of actors … Respect to all of you,the work that you all do is real acting,not like that crap that all on Marvel shit,” he wrote.
Rourke’s relationship with Marvel soured after his function in 2010’s “Iron Man 2,” which he has since publicly denounced. In earlier interviews, he slammed the studio for stripping Rourke’s character, the villainous Ivan Vanko/Whiplash, of any nuance.
“I wanted to bring some other layers and colors, not just make this Russian a complete murderous revenging bad guy. And they allowed me to do that,” he said in 2011. But Marvel execs, he stated, wished a “one-dimensional bad guy,” so his finest work was minimize from the ultimate edit.
“Iron Man 2” went on to gross $623.9 million on the worldwide field workplace, and Rourke by no means once more stepped foot on a Marvel set.
