Hey! Check this out! It's your first look at Mickey Rourke as the villain Whiplash from 'Iron Man 2'. Looks like he is just out of the Russian prison. He still has the orange prison pants on and he is obviously wearing a home made type of Exo suit. He has got the same type chest piece Power adapter than Stark has on his suit. Why is that? Favreau says:
"The technologies are definitely related. That's part of the core theme of the film."
Rourke's villain's name is Ivan Vanko and he has contructed his own suit which has a pair of whips that are powered by the suits chest piece. Hense the name of the villain Whiplash. You can see in the photo that he is holding on to the handles of those whips. I'd like to see the whips in action. They will light up. Rourke looks great as this character!
Hope you enjoy the pic! What do ya think of it?
Whiplash is making his appearance at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix.
