MTV recently spoke to Robert Downey Jr. about Iron Man 2 and he addressed some confusion people have been having as to what role Mickey Rourke will be playing (if he eventually signs). Some reports have suggested he will play The Crimson Dynamo, however…
“That’s actually incorrect,” Downey told MTV News when asked if Rourke was being considered for the aforementioned Iron Man rogue. When pressed if, instead of Crimson Dynamo, Rourke was up for the role of Whiplash, another potential role bandied about on blogs these days, Downey had a more cryptic response.
“I can neither confirm nor deny that,” said Downey. “Or maybe it’s some semblance of both. Here, I can tell you everything about the story except I won’t give away the ending. The nerd stuff is top-drawer security.”
We recently learned that Marvel gave Mickey Rourke a low offer to be in Iron Man 2, so hopefully Marvel and Rourke will work something out so he can play whichever character they have instore for him.
