FIRST LOOK: Mickey Rourke as Whiplash

USA Today has a first look at Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in “Iron Man 2,” the new Jon Favreau film based on the Marvel Comics characters. Also known as Ivan Vanko, the film’s Whiplash constructs his own version of Tony Stark’s famous armor, with the addition of a pair of powered whips.

“Robert [Downey, Jr.] has a tremendous screen presence. So it was very important that the villain be as compelling as can be,” Favreau told USA Today with regards to casting Rourke. “Once I thought of Mickey in that role, it made me understand how to shape the story.”

“Iron Man 2” is in production for May 7, 2010 release.
