    It is Official: Mickey Rourke is in Iron Man 2

    First Showing reports that Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily has confirmed that Mickey Rourke has officially signed on to play a villain in Iron Man 2:

    "I just heard that ICM has scored its second casting deal for Marvel's Iron Man 2. After at first being low-balled by the studio to the tune of $250K, Rourke has signed on for the role of the Russian villain in the sequel after his agent David Unger got the quote up to a "significant" level despite this punishing economic climate where the studios are taking advantage of talent. (No wonder Mickey kept thanking Unger so profusely in acceptance speeches for the BAFTA, Golden Globes, Spirit, and other awards.) But don't expect Marvel to confirm any of this: they won't until all the i's are dotted and t's crossed on the contracts. I can also tell you that Sony was considering hiring Mickey to play the villain in Spider-Man 4."

    Iron Man 2, which will once again star Robert Downey Jr. with Jon Favreau directing, as a May 7th, 2010 release date.

    I saw this earlier. Sounds good. He seems like he'd make a good villain.

    Can't wait to hear who he is confirmed to be playing. I've read different stories on who he is playing.


    I'm not thrilled that Johanson is playing Black Widow.

    Actually, I believe Johanson is out. She's doing Gulliver's Travels instead.

    EDIT: Oh crap, you're right. Nevermind.

    I'm sure Johanson's Russian accent will be as good as her English accent in The Prestige. At least I think she was trying for an English accent in that movie.

    It will be like Shannon Elizabeth's accent in American Pie.

    Word on the street is that Rourke is playing Whiplash.

    It looks like he'll basically be playing a gimp!
