New York magazine counted Wrestler star Mickey Rourke out of Iron Man 2 a couple of days ago, but now surfaces a video interview in which the odds-on Oscar favorite tells Reel Talk that he would still LOVE to be in the movie.

If things work out, that is. Watch the video after the jump.

This all has the stink of contract negotiations and public posturing to it. Let's see if Rourke takes home the gold on Sunday; that could change his bargaining position dramatically one way or the other.

Iron Man 2 is in preproduction, with an eye to a May 2010 release.
