Last week we got our first look at War Machine in Iron Man 2‘s first teaser poster, now we have a cool look at Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and co-stars director Jon Favreau, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson, Garry Shandling, and Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury.

I was a big fan of the Iron Man comic while growing up and thought that the first Iron Man flick was perfect.  Yahoo has posted a new teaser poster for the superhero’s sequel (shown below), and it features fan favorite War Machine!

Hulk issue 17 cover

Hulk #17 hits stands this Wednesday, November 25th. The issue is the final chapter in “Code Red” as the Red Hulk faces the team of Wolverine, Punisher, Deadpool, and the all-new Red She-Hulk.  Who will be left standing?  I have no idea but the issue sets the stage for “Wold War Hulks”.  The issue has art from Ian Churchill and was written by Jeph Loeb.

Also hitting stands from Marvel Comics is Uncanny X-Men #517, which features everyone’s favorite mutants against a herd of hungry Predator X’s, and Invincible Iron Man #20, the first part of “Stark: Disassembled”. For a full list of Marvel Comics coming out on Wednesday, click here.

Marvel Superhero Squad, Cartoon

Cartoon Network and Marvel Comics are teaming up for the Marvel Super Hero Squad, a new animated series that will feature some of Marvel’s most popular heroes, including Captain America, Hulk, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Silver Surfer, among others. The network has ordered 26 episodes of the series.

The new cartoon is loosely based on Marvel’s weekly comic strip of the same name, which features a new strip every day. Click here to check them out. The new series will premiere in late 2009.

Iron Man 2 Casting

This morning we got some big news on one of my most anticipated films of 2010!  Variety is reporting that Mickey Rourke, the tough as nails star of The Wrestler (best film of last year) and Sin City, is in talks to go head to head against Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark in Iron Man 2.

Rourke would be stepping into the red armor of Crimson Dynamo, a fan favorite villain who is Tony’s equal in power, but is ruthless and destructive.  You can learn more about the various men who have been Crimson Dynamo in the comics here.

Also in talks to play a villain in the Jon Favreau directed sequel is Sam Rockwell.Although it is unknown who Marvel wants Rockwell to portray, could it be the Titanium Man? Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo have teamed up many times over the years to over power and attempt to take down Iron Man. This would also stack huge odds against Stark in the film.

Sadly, there is no word on if we’ll see the Mandarin or Nick Fury in the film. Lets keep our fingers crossed for some more news.

Jeff Bridges’ official website is hosting a galley of back and white behind the scenes photos from the production of Iron Man.  I have not seen these pictures anywhere else.

Included in the mix are pictures taken in Stan Winston Studios (the place looks really freaking cool), and of the actor’s costume and camera tests. 

You can check out the pitcures here.
