It's often pretty difficult to find a film whose sequel can surpass the original, but it seems that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will do exactly that, at least in the humble opinion of actor Mickey Rourke who played Marv in the first film.
Whether intentional or not, Mickey Rourke has made some pretty memorable appearances in a couple of comic book movies. Take, for example, his performance in Iron Man 2 where he played Ivan Vanko, a stark (no pun intended) contrast to Tony Stark's character and the film's primary adversar (who could forget that performance?) Yet, prior to his debut in Marvel's Iron Man film franchise, Rourke appeared in Sin City as the film's lead protagonist, Marv. For those hoping to see the actor reprise the role in the sequel to Sin City, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, you're in luck. According to Vulture there is a good chance the actor will return to the role. Furthermore, it seems he's already read the script and thinks its better than the script for the first film.

Maybe Frank Miller's still got it? Yet, during the conversation with Rourke, the actor implied that his contract has not yet been finalized and he hasn't been confirmed for the role of Marv yet -- but we think it's highly likely. He isn't, however, looking forward to wearing prosthetics for the role as they do make him feel a bit claustrophobic. It's nice to know, however, that Rourke will deal with feeling a little bit claustrophobic for the sake of reprising the role onscreen. At least we hope so, anyway.
We are certainly looking forward to the release of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For on October 4th, 2013, what about you? Do you hope to see Rourke reprise his role as Marv in the sequel? Is this a film you have been looking forward to? Who do you think should play Ava Lord?
