MTV interviewed Sam Rockwell, who confirmed his role as Justin Hammer, Tony Stark’s nemesis, in the Iron Man sequel.  When asked about Mickey Rourke’s possible casting, Rockwell responded:

“Is Mickey cast yet? I hope so,” he told MTV.

As a big fan of Rockwell, I’m glad to see him in that role.  I felt one of the only weaknesses of Iron Man was the villain battle at the end. I liked Jeff Bridges as the villian, until he hopped into the big suit and started fighting, without any previous practice or training.
