USA Today have got an early look at Mickey Rourke as Russian villain Whiplash in Iron Man 2! And, from the looks of his get-up, it seems Whiplash has made his own costume in much the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark initially did for his alter-ego Iron Man. Click the link for a peek...
Whiplash's alter-ego is Russian businessman Ivan Vanko, who becomes the super-villain to challenge Iron Man. And if you recognise the power plate on the front of his costume as being similar to Iron Man's, director Jon Favreau explains that "the technologies are definitely related." Whiplash also seems to be on a Grand Prix circuit; important plot point, maybe?
Iron Man 2 is due for release in May 2010, and you can find out more by by clicking on the link below.
