First Look: Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2

Today, Iron Man 2 director, Jon Favreau broke the picture of Mickey Rourke as Whiplash on Twitter. First asking us to stay tuned, then said Whiplash!, accompanied by a link. The link was to a USA Today page on which an article was written about the new Whiplash photo. Here it is, check it out.


The USA Today article gives us a better understanding of the villain’s story. Whiplash aka Ivan Vanko is a Russian who "has constructed his own version of a suit," Favreau says. He manages to break out of prison using his suit. He sports a power pack on his chest similar to that of Tony Stark and Favreau says that "the technologies are definitely related, that's part of the core theme of the film."

In the photo, Whiplash is seen at the Monaco Grand Prix. Director Jon Favreau is being very secretive when it comes to the movie’s plot. But expect a lot more to be revealed in the coming months.

Iron Man 2 comes to theaters May 7, 2010.
