To prepare for his role as Ivan Vanko, a.k.a. Whiplash, Mickey Rourke paid a visit to Butyrka Prison, Moscow: "I tried to incorporate the whole Russian philosophy. It's a culture of its own, and I really enjoyed doing the research, and meeting the people, and they were very gracious there at the prison." Rourke also commented that Vanko's dialogue is in a Slovakian accent. See more »
(at around 50 mins) When Vanko is examining Hammer's drones, his hair is caught under the side of his glasses in the close shots and is over the glasses in the long shots. See more »

A couple of things we knew we were going to see - hinted at in the 1st
Film - Rhodey as War Machine, the Suitcase-Suit, the dying Stark who
has to drink 80 glasses of Green Machine a day, Pepper Potts as the
head of Stark Industries - S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury and The Avengers -
Black Widow! We get to see all of it in some form or other in this
excellent Sequel. Adding to my belief that Robert Downey Jr was
practically born to play Tony Stark, he builds on the first performance
and reveals even more about who Iron Man is.
Nothing really can be said about this that otherwise cannot be seen by
simply watching the film. In Blu-Ray if Possible, on DVD if not...
Looks good both ways.
My only beef is that Terence Howard did not reprise the role of
Rhodey/War Machine - But the addition of Scarlett Johanssen as Black
Widow, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer, Mickey Rourke as Vanko, and
Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury - Ease my initial disappointment at
seeing Don Cheadle take up the mantle of War Machine - But the fact
that Cheadle plays it JUST like Howard did - Even the Mannerisms, so it
really IS the same Character, Cheadle does the best he can, not being
Physically matched to Howard but personality-wise captured it. Also,
the repeat performance of Leslie Bibb as the Vanity Fair Reporter
Christine Everhart was well used- Even hinting that she was a fair
Reporter, so maybe if there are any more of these, we'll get to see her
come back, probably one of my favourite characters from this franchise.
Finally, director Jon Favreau gets to be Happy Hogan a Lot MORE in this
film much to my relief (Why recreate a great Iron Man character and
only show them twice? Much better to have them in the film as much as
the story can benefit by it?) The choice of Justin Theroux/Screenwriter
made this a much darker story than the initial Iron Man story - As Tony
builds Iron Man in the first film, this film mirrors that by having
Vanko building his Arc-Reactor weApon. I thought they were bringing In
Omega Red (X-Men Villain) into the story with the addition of Vanko,
but apparently this is a combination of a couple of Iron Man Villains.
This film is just another link in the upcoming promise of an Avengers
film, and Marvel is gathering all of its forces for this effort. One
thing we do know is that Iron Man WILL be a major part of The Avengers
And I ain't talking about Emma Peel!
