Mickey Rourke as Whiplash

Paramount has sent out a picture of Mickey Rourke in full Whiplash garb from Iron Man 2. He seems to be on some sort of racetrack, and his armor looks admittedly pretty basic (like there's no way he could go against Iron Man). This is surely somewhere in the beginning of the movie I would imagine because of the rawness of the getup. Whiplash is interesting because at first he does get it handed to him by Iron Man. After that, he goes and upgrades his weaponry and becomes Backlash, so maybe that'll be the big dramatic fight at the end of the movie where Iron Man fights the newly revamped Backlash. Stay tuned.
