* The trailer gave us a BreakingSpeech from Whiplash delivered in Mickey Rourke's trademark rumble (with a Russian accent no less) describing how the Stark family is built on lies and thievery and how they will meet their fate. This is followed by him cutting a UsefulNotes/FormulaOne car in half with a single strike of his whips, then skipping down the track and slamming his whips into the pavement before cutting to a shot of him laughing. Just from the trailer it's clear Whiplash is gonna be a badass.

* Mickey Rourke turned D-List Villain 'Whiplash' into such a remarkable badass, he makes even a simple ''request'' into a memorable line:

** Just for the sake of squee, the top speed of a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolls-Royce_Phantom_Coupé Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé]] is '''155 mph.''' The ''average'' speed of the [[http://www.vivaf1.com/monaco.php Monaco Grand Prix]] is '''158 mph.''' That means he was dodging cars coming at him at a combined speed of '''''OVER 300 MILES PER HOUR.''''' Creator/JonFavreau may have made himself something of a ButtMonkey in combat, but behind the wheel, he essentially made himself ChuckYeager. If there's anyone better than Harold "Happy" Hogan in the MarvelCinematicUniverse, they can [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture drive cars through time]].

* Happy Hogan. Just the {{Plucky Comic Relief}}, right? Sure, apart from the scene in Monaco where he drives a normal car on a F1 track, slaloming ''against the direction of the incoming race cars'' '''at top speed '''. Much of this is '''''one-handed''''' because Pepper is desperately trying to get the Mark V uncuffed from his arm, with the key in his pocket. Then he rams the car into Dynalash. Then, when Dynalash starts moving, he does it again. Awesome.

* In Vanko's first attack, how does Iron Man defeat him? By ''wrapping himself in one of Vanko's whips'', which are visibly scarring and damaging the armor he's wearing, and then ''dragging himself closer'' so Vanko can't escape, and then punching his lights out. When it comes to showing how impossibly tough the Iron Man suits are, there's nothing better than literally wrapping a car-slicing electrified heat-whip around yourself to take down the bad guy.
