Is this Whiplash's Iron Man 2 costume?

There's some new concept art of Whiplash - the villain being played by Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2 - up at the official Marvel site.

Now, don't go getting too excited/angry: it was created for a four-issue miniseries called Iron Man Vs Whiplash, which was no doubt created to stir excitement for next year's film release.

But while there's no way to tell yet if this image is any indication as to what Rourke will ultimately look like (since the only pic we've seen is an earlier version of his suit, below), it's certainly an interesting one...

Could this be Mr Whippy? Or do you think Jon Favreau has something cooler lined up?
