Is This Whiplash Mark II?

Concept Art

Cinematical has unearthed this concept art of Wiplash from Marvel and it may give us some insight as to what Mickey Rourke’s character will look like in his final form. As of now, our only indications to his appearance have been from the shots of Whiplash as he terrorizes a speedway where Tony Stark is racing, but it is apparent that this takes place early in the film, as his character as you can see his prison jumpsuit under his Mark I armor. It would appear that the concept art was made before Rourke was cast, as the body type is a bit too small and is missing the character’s inked upper-arms.

In addition to the art, the article also mentions that Marvel will be releasing a four-issue limited-series comic series titled “Iron Man vs. Whiplash,” which will investigate the origins of the character. It is not yet known if the material in the series will cover Whiplash’s character development in the film.
