Rourke Whips Up a Frenzy With First Iron Man 2 Pics
This is a first look at how Hollywood resurrection Micky Rourke will look when he takes up the role of Ivan Vanko in the new Iron Man movie.
The villain, known to his friends as Whiplash, is seen here disrupting Monaco Grand Prix – presumably because he finds it as boring as the rest of us.
Director John Favreau said: “It was very important that the villain be as compelling as can be. Once I thought of Mickey in that role, it made me understand how to shape the story.”
If Rourke’s recent return to form is anything to go by Iron Man 2 will be the next film in a long line of successes.
