Whiplash(Mickey Rourke) is suit up for Iron Man 2, an Iron Man nemesis who has some sort of power of his own. A power source on his chest like the one Iron Man has which gives power to his whips.
"The technologies are definitely related," says director Jon Favreau. "That's part of the core theme of the film."
The villain's alter ego, Ivan Vanko, is a Russian who "has constructed his own version of a suit," Favreau says. Among the creative innovations: a pair of whips, powered by the suit's glowing chest piece, that are expected to keep Iron Man cracking.
