[UPDATE: Check out the first real look at Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2.]

Latino Review recently posted a pic of what many are speculating is concept art of the armor Mickey Rourke will don in Iron Man 2 to become the whip-wielding villain known as Whiplash.

Just so we’re clear: no one from the Iron Man 2 production has yet confirmed that this pic is in any way the official armor design for Rourke’s Whiplash character, but we thought you’d like to have a look at it anyway, just for fun:

Is this Mickey Rourke’s Iron Man 2 armor?

Not a bad design, but without a helmet to complete the picture, it’s really kind of meh… I’m going to go ahead and guess that this is either some VERY early official concept art of Whiplash, if not an outright fan-made pic.

Just to keep the good times rolling, I’d thought I’d show you two more Whiplash costume designs: the first is the Whiplash armor from the Iron Man Armored Adventures cartoon series that currently airs on the NickToons Network. The other is a pic of the Whiplash character that recently appeared in various Marvel comic books.

Again: these two pics are just for comparison. Neither one is in any way related to Iron Man 2.

What do you think about the Mickey Rourke/Whiplash art? Official or fan-made? Did either of the other two Whiplash designs catch your eye?

Iron Man 2 is slated to hit theaters on May 7, 2010.
