First Look At Mickey Rourke As Whiplash In Iron Man 2


Recommended Posts

Man! Here's to hoping that's just the skeletal structure of the suit. And now, I have to go find out who 'Whiplash' is - only whipping badguy I know is Blacklash.



Wow! Was that ever a mistake! More convolution on the part of the movies, with a hand from the comic itself.


For those (like myself) not in the know, 'Whiplash' is the name Blacklash started out with (in the comics). And he was italian, not russian, as presented in the movie. Furthermore, in the comics, Whiplash is now the moniker of a female baddie, not at all associated with Iron Man, but a mutant. In the case of this movie, it is postulated that this Whiplash is the amalgam of both Blacklash and Crimson Dynamo (the russian part).


Why can't they just keep this sh!t simple? @wacko@

I'm afraid that is the final "costume". Here is what Whiplash looks like in the comics:






Its the exact same look they went for in the movies.



Woah Whiplash done went S&M with his look!



B&D but yeah there will be a bunch of those jokes now. I'm gonna make some of them lol.

Are you people serious? Did you really think Jon Favreau and his crew were going to use the costume with the purple cape and green ponytail? The discussion about characters in movies not wearing their comic costumes is in another topic.


After seeing those other pictures that costume (without The Gimp mask) looks fine.

He definitely looks menacing. I always thought the character was a little wimpy for an Iron Man villain. All IM has to do is get in the air and shoot from above. Whiplash doesn't really have any distance attack. Perhaps in the movie he can launch some kind of energy wave/beam or the whip extends really far.
