Iron Man 2 – Whiplash: Slash and Burn web game

Posted by LiveFor on April 28, 2010

Whiplash: Slash and Burn is a fast-paced browser game to promote the theatrical release of Marvel’s Iron Man 2 this May.

In the game the player takes control of Iron Man’s new nemesis Whiplash as he storms the race track where Stark is racing.

Using Whiplash’s cable-whip arms, the player will attempt to destroy the racing cars as they speed towards the screen. After hitting enough cars, a special power surge is rewarded, which can be used to knock out multiple vehicles.

The main aim is to annihilate Tony Stark’s car as he passes. As the timer ticks down the cars increase in speed making it harder to earn points for destruction. On completing the game the player can add their high score to a leaderboard.

This explosive game shows that Unity is bringing the 3D browser game to a new level of sophistication.
You can download the game here.

There is also some interesting innovation in social gaming and virtual worlds has come with the release of Paramount’s Iron Man Audi Space Playstation Home takeover.

Iron Man 2 Costumes – Now you can have Tony Stark’s facial hair!

Posted by LiveFor on February 25, 2010


If you have ever wanted to look like Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, but were too lazy to grow your own goatee here is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

Lots of Iron Man 2 costumes are there for the picking. As well as Iron Man you can dress up as an Ironette, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash, Don Cheadle’s War Machine (the helmet for that costume seems a bit big).

Iron Man 2 – Check out the Assault Drones

Posted by LiveFor on January 21, 2010


We’ve seen Iron Man and War Machine from Jon Favreau’s sequel, but what about those other suits of Armour you see them fighting near the end of the trailer?

Well this pics of the new series of Diamond Select Toys give us a clearer look at the Assault Drones. According to io9 they are air, land and sea types. Who made them though? Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) or Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) who we see in the midst of the drones above.

Also who or what is in the blacked out space in the picture below? It looks armour shaped so do either the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) or Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) get a suit of armour as they have in the different comic books? Or could it be another version of Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash armour?

Who do you think it is?

Iron Man 2 – Trailer featuring War Machine, Whiplash and so much more

Posted by LiveFor on December 17, 2009

Finally the trailer for Iron Man 2 is out and it is chock full of awesome. We get to see Robert Downey Jr being cheeky as Stark, Garry Shandling as a congressman type, Gwyneth Paltrow is still the put upon Pepper, Mickey Rourke does a mirror image of Stark building the Whiplash weapons, dancing girls, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer and Don Cheadle as War Machine.

It is at the end that you see War Machine and Stark fighting what appear to be either more men in Iron Man style armour or droids with the familiar chest light.

There is also a quick shot of Starks chest with the reactor in it and what appear to be circuit type veins around it (above). Maybe the extremis virus? This was a thing that happened in the comics where Stark basically became a super computer and could link into satellites, remote control numerous Iron Man suits and stuff like that.

It also looks as if Tony Stark will be getting a new suit of armour. The photo above shows him with War Machine and notice the triangular chest plate – does that make it Mark IV or Mark V? I’ve lost track.

Have a watch of the trailer and let me know what you think of it.

Iron Man 2 – Poster – Mickey Rourke as Whiplash

Posted by LiveFor on December 10, 2009

Not too long ago we had a poster showing Iron Man and War Machine, then there was the one with Tony Stary (Robert Downey Jr) looking all intense.

Now we have another great poster, via Collider, showing Mickey Rourke as the Russian bad guy Whiplash. There had been talk that Whiplash’s suit, like the one above, would be a Mark I version of the final armour, but so far this is all we have seen.

I am really enjoying the poster design for the Iron Man 2 posters. I’m looking forward to the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) poster that has got to coming soon.

What do you think of the posters?

Whiplash has a new look

Posted by LiveFor on August 18, 2009

whiplash

Mickey Rourke is playing Whiplash in Iron Man 2 and had looked like this. That was an early look of his armour and so far we are waiting for confirmation on what the full armour will look like.

Marvel have released the above image from a forthcoming comic book Mini-Series. Written by Brannon Braga and Green Lantern movie co-writer Marc Guggenheim thee four-issue series will, according to editor Bill Rosemann, tell you all you need to know about Rourke’s character before the movie:

Before he flays the metal off of Tony Stark’s hide in ‘Iron Man 2,’ this is every True Believer’s chance to crawl inside the twisted head of the wicked Whiplash… If it’s jet-setting, globe-trotting, eye-popping action you crave, Iron Man Vs. Whiplash will make you believe that Tony Stark is indeed a cool exec with a heart of steel… and Whiplash is the fiend that will break it!

As this is for the comic book there may be no correlation with the final look of the character in the film, but you never know.

What are your thoughts on the art work? Could it work on the big screen?
