maxpayne123.jpgSomehow, Mark Wahlberg has got it in his square goddamned head that his Max Payne character is more bad-ass than The Dark Knight, which is a bit like suggesting Jonah Hill is hotter than Robert Downey, Jr. I mean, Hill has a certain appeal, but come on. Downey will melt your panties, while Jonah Hill will go into anaphylactic shock if he sees them.

With reference to The Dark Knight, Wahlberg told MTV News:

“Take off the suit and if you want to go one-on-one, two-on-one, and put a couple of you guys together - they all like to put the comic book characters together - come at me,” Wahlberg joked. “I’m not talking about financial box office, I’m talking about one-on-one with these (puts up fists) … This is like my character from ‘The Departed,’ ‘Fear,’ ‘Four Brothers,’ all mixed into one, times ten.”

Granted, his Fear character was pretty terrifying, stealing a crotch rub from Reese Witherspoon on that roller coaster and all, but even times ten, The Dark Knight could hang Maxie Payne up by his underwear. The evidence is not exactly in Max Payne’s favor. Real men wear capes.
