The promotion for Iron Man 2 is moving full steam ahead with the film scheduled to hit theatres on 7 May 2010. The studio have recently released a new promotional poster depicting Mickey Rourke as the villain Whiplash. Word on the street is that the version of Whiplash we'll see in the film Iron Man 2 includes elements of both Whiplash and Crimson Dynamo from the Marvel Comics.

As you can see in the poster, Whiplash is going to be Ram-esque (check out The Wrestler).

In this other shot from the film it looks like Whiplash's costume may have borrowed a little from the original Iron Man armor.
