Remember how there was some confusion on exactly which character Mickey Rourke would be playing in the Iron Man sequel? While we were told he'd be playing Whiplash, the description of the character was more in tune with Crimson Dynamo. It's been almost a month since the casting announcement and Robert Downey Jr. has finally surfaced to clear up the confusion. Well, sort of.

Downey Talks Rourke in Iron Man Sequel

Catching up with MTV Splash Page, Robert Downey Jr. discusses both Sherlock Holmes and the upcoming Iron Man sequel.

“That’s actually incorrect,” Downey told MTV News when asked if Rourke was being considered for the aforementioned Iron Man rogue. When pressed if, instead of Crimson Dynamo, Rourke was up for the role of Whiplash, another potential role bandied about on blogs these days, Downey had a more cryptic response.

“I can neither confirm nor deny that,” said Downey. “Or maybe it’s some semblance of both. Here, I can tell you everything about the story except I won’t give away the ending. The nerd stuff is top-drawer security.”

So what did we learn? Er, um, nothing. Looks like Marvel might be tweaking their villains to better fit Rourke.
