Whiplash – First Look at Iron Man 2’s Big Bad

I know its a bit late, but the first look at Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2 have been put online.  I’m undecided myself.  There’s not much tie-in to the comic look, but I’m willing to trust Jon Favreau after the phenomenal job he did on the first Iron Man film.  One of the things that has been pointed out is that it looks like Whiplash has an arc reactor on his chest much like Tony Stark.  Guess we’ll have to see just how far the arc reactor technology has spread in the movieverse.

For the sake of comparison I’ve included a couple images below.  The first shows the looks of Whiplash in the comics and the other the look for the movie.  Leave some comments below on what you think of the costume change and any conspiracy theories you might have on the upcoming movie.
