New IRON MAN 2 photos reveal Whiplash’s pet cockatoo
So we are just about a month out, and while I’m not one to normally post photos from a film that we are mere weeks away from seeing, I really can’t get enough IRON MAN 2, and I am damn sure that neither can you.
Yahoo has a batch of new images from the upcoming blockbuster, which are actually quite interesting. In the group, we not only get a rather bad ass shot of Iron Man’s helmet, but we also get our first real look at Jon Favreau’s character in the series, Hogan, who looks to be carrying that kick-ass briefcase holding the portable Iron Man suit revealed at the end of the latest trailer.
However, the real reason I wanted to put these up, besides my obsession with the franchise, is the purely awesome photo directly above this write up. It features Mickey Rourke as his Russian criminal character, Whiplash, with a pet cockatoo.
Rourke spoke with EW on the character, who he didn’t want to be one-dimensional: “He [Jon Favreau] let me have a cockatoo, who I talk to and get drunk with while I’m making my suit.” Amazing.
My ass is already in my seat to see what's in store from this flick.
