[post_page_title]Mickey Rourke and Marvel[/post_page_title]
Iron Man 2 brought a very interesting new villain into the mix – Whiplash, played by the award winning Mickey Rourke. Again, this was a classic situation of Marvel giving an actor the allowance to dig deep into his character and add dynamic levels to his psyche.
But although Rourke put in the work, he felt that Marvel made Whiplash into a generic villain. As a result, he ended up describing their films as “mindless comic book movies.”
