The proverbial cat is out of the bag regarding the secret ending of “Iron Man 2.” Navigating through spoilery waters is always a bit difficult for fans, but for many of the filmmakers and actors close to the project, the secret “Iron Man 2” scene has been common knowledge for quite some time.
But it’s not common knowledge for everybody — certainly not for Mickey Rourke, who said he hasn’t even seen “Iron Man 2” yet.
“I have no idea,” he told MTV’s Josh Horowitz when asked about rumors of the secret “Iron Man” scene. “I haven’t seen the film.”
As “Iron Man 2” celebrated its world premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week, it’s very likely that Rourke has seen the film by now. But would you believe that the actor didn’t even know what “Iron Man 2” was about while shooting the film?
Believe it or not, that’s the case, according to Rourke!
“If you want me to be honest with you, I’ve only read my part,” he confessed. “I had no idea what was going on in the movie, really.”
Rourke said it didn’t really matter to him what was going on in “Iron Man 2” outside of his scenes as Whiplash. Given the character’s status as the film’s central villain, Rourke presumably knew a good deal about the movie’s major action scenes, or at the very least, the Monaco Grand Prix sequence.
But Rourke’s decision to focus solely on his own role extends beyond “Iron Man 2.” According to the actor, he demonstrated a similar practice on another recent movie.
“I just did a movie with Megan Fox and I have no idea what’s going on!” he declared.
