It seems that a superhero sequel will not get a wrestler after all. According to New York Magazine, Mickey Rourke revealed that he won't be playing a role in Iron Man 2.
"Right now, we're not doing Iron Man 2," Rourke told the site. It was widely reported that Marvel Studios came in with a lowball offer of $250,000 for a role in the film and apparently negotiations have broken down.
Rourke recently signed on to appear in Sylvester Stallone's new film, The Expendables as well. We'll certainly keep you posted on any news revolving Rourke or Iron Man 2.
