Re: Iron Man 2: Grading, Review, Discussion **SPOILERS**
You all remember the "You Complete me" line in trailers that was ultimately cut from the final movie
this is the alternate scene/ opening where pepper throws his helmets and he jumps out and catches it.
This is such a better opening. I'm not sure how or where you would place the Ivan Vanko sequence -- probably after the Stark Expo bit -- but that is such an insanely clever and funny opening that I'm puzzled that Favreau took it out.
