After much umming, ahhing and holding out for a better offer than a measly 250k, Mickey Rourke has officially signed on to play the villain in Marvel’s “Iron Man 2”. And yes, he will get a fatter pay packet.

According to Variety, Rourke’s salary will be now better than 250k – thanks to his ICM rep, David Unger, who battled for more dough – but nobody’s caught their hands on a transaction slip yet, so it’s anyone’s guess just how ‘much’ more the Oscar Nominee will be getting.

Robert Downey Jr also played a part in recruiting Rourke for the film – he apparently caught up with him on the awards circuit a lot this year and used each occasion to pitch the man.

Rourke, next in Stallone’s “The Expendables”, will play Whiplash, a character that includes elements from that comicbook villain and Crimson Dynamo, another Russian baddie.

Meanwhile, the trade reports that Scarlett Johansson is the favourite to play ‘The Black Widow’ (Which Emily Blunt was originally set to play before Fox stole her away) in the super sequel.
