Favs, Rourke on IM2

The guys at Empire manged to catch up with both director Jon Favreau and lead Mickey Rourke as they spoke a little about what's going on in IRON MAN 2. Favs said:

"Tony's expected to be a role model and I don't think he's ready to be one. He's under a great deal of pressure and when you're under pressure, I think you find outlets for that. That's one of the tensions of the film: it's one thing to say you're Iron Man, and another thing to actually become Iron Man... Rhodesy is definitely stepping up in this film. Let me put it this way: Tony's not the only person with technology in the film."

And as for Mickey Rourke? Seems like that dude is having a good time:

"I'm having the time of my life! It's been really brutal, because my Iron Man suit weighs 23lb. It's sort of a half-suit, with half my skin showing, with lots of Russian tattoos, because [Whiplash is just] out of a Russian-zone prison."

... Which is great. I mean that dude did a lot of hell-raising, but for whatever reason now, it just feels like he deserves to have some fun. Like me. And all of us, really!
Extra Tidbit: This will be the first of Marvel's sequels.
