Mickey Rourke is NOT in "Iron Man 2"

Mickey Rourke is NOT in "Iron Man 2"Submit Comment
New York Magazine ran into actor Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), who revealed that he will likely not take the "Iron Man 2" role. "Right now, we're not doing Iron Man 2," he said.

It was first assumed that Rourke would be playing the Soviet-era villain The Crimson Dynamo, and while we later learned that Rourke was considered for a different role, both Robert Downey Jr and Sam Rockwell confirmed Rourke's involvement.

Then news broke that Marvel was offering Rourke only $250,000 to join the cast, which is probably why he decided to skip the highly-anticipated sequel and go with Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables" instead.

now he has a chance to be Nick Fury in it. Pay the man, he's an oscar nominee (perhaps soon a winner).

Oh god Mickey Rourke as Nick Fury would be 50 different kinds of right.

This is no surprise w/ the small payday he was offered. Though if he does end up playing Nick Fury that would be cool. Maybe $250,000 for a smaller role like Fury? That makes more sense.

yeah but The Expendables is sure one helluva 2nd choice to "settle" for. Iron Man 2 may be great, but The Expendables might end up being epic. Dare I say a cult classic.
