Rourke says he’s not doing Iron Man 2 now

It’s tough to track what’s going on with Iron Man 2, as cash flow issues seem to be playing havoc with casting. The latest issue? Mickey Rourke

First, he was in, playing a villain. Then Robert Downey Jr said he hadn’t been confirmed.

Now, according to the man himself, Rourke and Marvel might be at an impasse over money.

"Right now, we're not doing Iron Man 2," Rourke tells New York Magazine – the “we” being he and his agent, David Unger.

While this doesn’t mean Rourke won’t be showing up to the sequel’s set (it sounds like a negotiating tactic), you’ve got to wonder whether Marvel is waiting to see if he wins an Oscar on Sunday before they make their final decision.

Okay, maybe not – but they certainly seem to be dragging their feet. Maybe another gold gong will convince them...

Do you want to see Mickey Rourke join the cast? Is he worth a hefty payday, post-Wrestler?
