USA Today has released the first pic of Mickey Rourke as the villain Whiplash in “Iron Man 2″! Direct Jon Favreau and Rourke are quoted as follows:
The character’s alter ego, Ivan Vanko, is a Russian who, Favreau says, “has constructed his own version of a suit.” Among the creative alterations: a pair of whips, powered by the suit’s glowing chest piece, expected to keep Iron Man cracking. Whiplash “is going to light them up,” says Rourke.
Whiplash makes his first appearance in the film at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix. The rest of the article can be found here. Check out the pic below!
“Iron Man 2″ is scheduled to hit theaters May 7, 2010.
