Mickey Rourke To Play Baddie In Iron Man 2?

Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) is in talks to play the main heavy in “Iron Man 2,” the Marvel Entertainment sequel that director Jon Favreau begins shooting this spring.

Rourke is in discussions to play the Crimson Dynamo, a heavily tattooed Russian arms dealer. He’s considered to be an evil version of Iron Man because he battles the superhero in a nuclear-powered suit of armor.
Script is still being written by Justin Theroux, and Marvel has been trying to keep a wrap on details leaking out to fanboys.

Iron Man 2 opens in theaters summer 2010 and is to be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Haven't seen The Wrestler yet, but I heard so many great things about that film. I mostly enjoy most of Rourke's performances and I think he would be an ideal villain in Iron Man 2.

If you have the chance, see The Wrestler. Here comes the part where Rourke becomes a hot commodity for a few months. Hope he doesn't eff it up.
