Tony Stark isn't feeling too hot in this alternate Iron Man 2 opening

09.23.2010

Often we see alternate endings for movies come out as the DVD release date draws closer, but rarely do you see alternate openings. I thought this may be some sort of comedy skit when I first read the title but nope, it's a real opening that was scrapped for the theatrical release of IRON MAN 2.

I guess the studio didn't want to open the movie with Tony Stark throwing up in a toilet. I'm not sure if the implication here is that it's alcohol induced, or just travel sickness from the plane. I'm assuming the former, due to Stark's later problems in the movie and the fact that he f*cking flies around at supersonic speeds in a claustrophobic suit all day.

It also has that scene from the trailer we all missed in the actual film, where Pepper kisses his helmet and throws it out of the plane. I think they should have at least kept that little bit of it.

Extra Tidbit: I think they toned down Tony's alcoholism a bit from how much they originally planned to put in. This scene was probably a casualty.

I actually liked this intro a little better, if only because the humor in it is great. The bickering between Pepper and Tony is hilarious and it really kicks the film off in the right direction, not with Iron Man, but with the human elements of the film. Course, I've mostly forgot the original intro, so, I guess I could be talking out my butt.

THEY SHOULD'VE AT LEAST KEPT THE LAST BIT...

when she throws the helmet out the back cause it was in all the trailers. In the movie he just runs out the back of the plane and jumps but they should've at least kept the bit about his hair and Pepper tossing the helmet.

with regard to the extra tidbit- Like, 2 years before the movie came out, they were saying Iron Man 2 would be about dealing with Tony's alcoholism. I noticed when they released IM2 that somewhere they were like, SHIT - kids watch this stuff, we don't want them drinking Scotch before naptime- so they made it seem like he was dying and tried to change as much as possible.

This opening is great, I think I like it better than the theatrical opening. Also, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark may be my favorite movie character of all time.

Im glad it got cut

The original opening is much more epic and the whiplash origin is one of the best parts of the movie. While this opening is interresting to see, it is all jokes. Iron Man has to be an action movie before a comedy.

nice one

I like it. It reminds you right at the begining that this is infact a guy in a suit and not some ever amazing hero. Make's him seem more human.

They should have used it.

They should have used this one because I liked this scene from the trailer. I mean you needed the intro with Mickey Rourke for plot but let's be honest, they could have thrown that anywhere with the way they treated the villain's 'b' plot.

They should have kept this in. This one is alot more memorable than what they actually used.

I don't think it was because he was drunk. Remember he was dying and trying all kinds of weird shit to stay alive. So maybe he was just sick

I actually like this one better. There's more emotion. My problem with Iron Man 2 is that it's too funny. Every time you think emotion is about to built up they crack a joke. It kind of took me out of it.
