Mickey Rourke in Talks for "Iron Man 2" 


The hot, hot career of Mister Mickey! Now, he's in talks to star in "Iron Man 2" as Crimson Dynamo! Just take a look at the picture, an evil version of Iron Man.

Meanwhile, Mister Sam Rockwell is also in talks to star in the sequel.




Rockwell will also play a villain, but Marvel hasn't disclosed his role yet. Let the fanboys guess!

Paramount is set to distribute the film summer of 2010!
