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.
I think the only thing that doesn't work is the opening on Stark with his head in the toilet. Not the best reintroduction to Tony after 2yrs away.
One could argue it foreshadows 'drunk Tony coping with death' later in the film but first thing in the film really wasn't ideal.
