Alternate Opening For ‘Iron Man 2′ Shows A Darker Side of Tony Stark

Feel like Iron Man 2 was lacking in the alcoholic subplot that Tony Stark went through in the comics? Well, it looks like the original scribe of the film felt so as well, as we’re getting to see the original opening of the film for the first time.

Set to be attached to next week’s DVD and Blu-Ray release of the film, the opening focuses way less on Rourke’s backstory, and way more on the relationship between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts.

The scene also includes the iconic Pepper/Helmet kiss that we saw in all of the trailers, but never made the final cut.

They may have beaten the alcoholic subplot, but it looks like this deleted scene had more of the witty comedy that made the first film so good. More deleted scenes are expected to roll out as we draw closer to the release of Iron Man 2 on DVD and Blu-Ray next Tuesday.

In the meantime, check out the scene in glorious standard definition after the jump.
