If you were puzzled as to why Pepper Potts never kissed Tony’s helmet goodbye like in the trailer, than you are in for a treat. With the release of the Iron Man 2 DVD/Blu-Ray coming out soon, the alternate opening sequence with this footage was leaked and can be watched now before it will probably be pulled down.
I really enjoyed this opener and gave more of a sense of Tony Stark’s alcohol abuse and made the introduction more fun like in the first movie. Director Jon Favreau decided to cut this from the beginning to give Iron Man more of a bigger entrance and not so much of a comedic opening. Check it out and ask yourself, why wasn’t this put in here?!
