Mickey Rourke has been getting good projects in 2008. And 2009 will be another good year for him. He made–sort of–a comeback with The Wrestler, one of 2008’s best films. He will be seen next in The Informers.
And here’s the news: he will be in Iron Man 2 as a Russian named Ivan who will become Whiplash—a man with deadly coils. Iron Man 2 is slated to be open on May 2010.
