@sparky_buzzsaw: Well, from a story stand point he's one of the few characters that survived their story so really it makes even less sense. Unless Mickey Rourke is playing someone else this time around.
I don't know. That is a thing that struck me, but this is one of those movies I won't watch a trailer for- I'm just gonna go see it and let the chips fall where they may. I look forward to how the movie plays out. It's sure to be interesting.
