Iron Man 2 - Rourke's Whiplash revealed!

http://chud.com/articles/articles/19...LED/Page1.html

I'm...interested. Looks like Rourke in Death Race 2000. It's definitely not what I expected.

The Iron Man equivalent of Doc Ock? A villian who won't have to take his mask off to fight the hero.

It looks like he's got an Arc reactor too.

Re: Iron Man 2 - Rourke's Whiplash revealed!

I'm skeptical about choosing Whiplash as a major villain; he's a dude with a mechanical whip. But we'll see.

I would've liked him more as Boris Bullski (Titanium Man), he has the "Big Hulking Guy" thing down pat.

Why Whiplash? I thought they were going with Titanium man and Crimson Dynamo?

LOL! Well they are supposed to combine elements of both Whiplash and The Crimson Dynamo so that would explain things a bit.

So will Wiplash and Iron Man have a drinking contest when they first meet?

Re: Iron Man 2 - Rourke's Whiplash revealed!

Now I know why Rourke's negotiations went on so long.

The producers were probably trying to get him to change his hair for the role.

The producers lost.

Now, why are you surprised?

Seriously, why not just do Crimson Dynamo. What's so great about Ock-like whips?
