He was portrayed by Mickey Rouke

Later, he escapes from prison to get revenge on Stark and in the employ of industrialist Justin Hammer, he creates an army of android suits called the Hammer Drones. After his army of Hammer Drones were defeated, Vanko (now wearing an upgraded Whiplash suit), Stark, and Stark's partner Jim Rhodes, AKA War Machine, come face to face in a final showdown. After Vanko was defeated when both Stark and Rhodes shoot him with their beams, he says "You lose." and activates self-destruct mechanisms in the Hammer Drones and on his own armor. Stark and Rhodes flies off and all the drones and Vanko's suit explodes, killing him.
