Mickey Rourke Had An Accent In Iron Man 2 Because Mickey Rourke Demanded It

"Iron Man 2" is an awkward entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, continuing the story of Tony Stark while following up on the big Avengers promise that the previous film's post-credits scene teased. The characterization of the vengeful tech genius Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash, was unfortunately one of the casualties of this uneven balancing act. However, Mickey Rourke did provide the more memorable aspects of the supervillain, including his delectably menacing Russian accent.

Mickey Rourke Had Some Bonkers Demands In The MCU, Despite Never Having Read The Script (Or Knowing Who ‘Iron Man’ Was)

To say that Mickey Rourke did not have a great experience making Iron Man 2 just might be the understatement of the century. Since the movie’s original release in 2010, the Oscar-nominated actor (and SVU superfan) has taken every possible opportunity to trash the Iron Man sequel and Marvel at large.
