Now unless you’re a comic book superhero or in a Kylie Minougue music video there is really no reason for you to be wearing spandex. No wonder your family are worried about you. However Iron Man armor even in real life is pretty darn cool.
Now most of you have probably already watched the latest Marvel superhero movie, Iron Man 2 which recently hit the theaters(unless you’re a nerd). I also bet most of you were rather confused (and maybe a little disappointed) to discover that some of the great scenes shown in the promotional clips and trailers were not even in the movie.
The trailers lied to us! Why would they do that? I mean I know girls lie all the time but not you movie trailers. Not you. OK Kidding. I don’t want to get hate mail from a bunch of girls tomorrow. Girls just lie to me specifically. Not in general. Maybe I should not talk about video games on dates anymore. I’ve found that thats not a good thing.
Anyway back to Iron Man. An example of one such cut scene is the hilarious ‘kiss me for good luck’ moment where Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) kisses Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) Iron Man helmet and throws it out the back of a cargo plane. In the movie, Iron Man is all suited up and just jumps out. How boring.
Then there was another scene that got cut which was the scene where Tony shows his new assistant, Natalie Rushman, aka the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), how to shoot one of his gauntlet repulsors at his birthday party. If that doesn’t doesn’t impress the girls I don’t know what will.
Well, director Jon Favreau had finally explained why these scenes didn’t make it into the Final Cut of Iron Man 2, in his recent interview with MTV. He basically felt it was better without the scenes as it ruined the momentum of the movie and also spoiled the relationship between Tony Stark (Robert Downey JR) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).
I don’t really think it would have but then again I’m not a Hollywood director so what do I know?
So basically, these scenes was cut to make sure the story could maintain the interest of the audience. Having said that though its friggin Iron Man. If you’re not interested there is just no pleasing you.
Nevertheless, Favreau has confirmed that all of the cut scenes will be available on the Iron Man 2 DVD. So, if you are still curious about these deleted cut scenes you’ll just have to wait till the DVD is out. Apparently I heard there is a sexy bikini scene involving Scarlet Johansson and Gwyneth Palthrow. Oh no wait I think that was dream I had. Good times.
I had this other dream where Terrence Howard was replaced by Don Cheadle in the sequel. Weird right?
