FIRST LOOK: Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2...

This photo has been out since Monday I believe, but I have decided to wait to post this, just to see what all comes out of it via the interwebs, or if other photos are posted, because this has not hit well with fans of the character of Blacklash, and fans of Iron Man and the first film. However, it kind of works for me.

The film hasn't really had many things released, but what we do know is that Rourke's character Ivan Vanko will not only become the character of Blacklash/Whiplash, but it will also incorporate points from the character of Crimson Dynamo, i.e. why he has the powersuit in the photo. So he will have a powersuit AND some badass whips. Sounds pretty cool to me. Also, Rourke looks surly as hell, and his look will hopefully add a bit of grunginess to the very prestine and clean cut world of Iron Man. The photo is VERY basic and arguably a silly one at that, but it does kind of work for me. Anyways, check it out below!!

Here's Iron Man 2's premise (via WikiPedia)

In an interview with USA Today, Jon Favreau revealed that the sequel is set 6 months after the events of Iron Man, and he also stated that Stark's revealing of his identity is taking its toll on him. Favreau revealed their version of Iron Man's comic book nemesis the Mandarin "allows us to incorporate the whole pantheon of villains", while S.H.I.E.L.D. will continue to have a major role.[1]

During development, Favreau said the film would explore Stark's alcoholism, but it would not be "the Leaving Las Vegas version".[1] Downey said, while promoting the first film, that Stark would probably develop a drinking problem as he is unable to cope with his age and Pepper getting a boyfriend.[2] Before filming began, Downey revealed that while the film was not an adaptation of Demon in a Bottle, it was more about the "interim space" between the origin and the Demon story arc.

Go see something good!
