IRON MAN 2 PHOTO: MICKEY ROURKE AS WHIPLASH


Paramount Pictures released a photo of Mickey Rourke as Ivan Vanko aka Whiplash from Iron Man 2 to USA Today.

Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) sports a power pack on his chest that looks similar to the one that Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) uses.

"The technologies are definitely related," says director Jon Favreau. "That's part of the core theme of the film."

The villain's alter ego, Ivan Vanko, is a Russian who "has constructed his own version of a suit," Favreau says. Among the creative innovations: a pair of whips, powered by the suit's glowing chest piece, that are expected to keep Iron Man cracking.

Whiplash "is going to light them up," Rourke quips.


I'm guessing this is the first version of the suit and more will be added later as other parts are found.

So what do you think of it so far?

It's looking good but I'm worried they're trying to cram too much into one film. Time will tell.
