While the animatics have since been removed by Marvel’s internet ninjas, they included an alternate opening sequence where Iron Man battles a convoy of para-military looking guys (or Hydra) in a tree-lined area or jungle setting, where Iron Man’s missile firing malfunctions. So anytime he eats in the final film, that’s just because Downey Jr. The shawarma end-credits tag that everyone loves? Zak Penn wrote an early draft of the script, hence why he gets a story credit on the finished film. It was shot the night of the film’s Hollywood premiere.18. Originally, Iron Man was not given such a natural segue.14. Whedon didn’t mind the above guidelines. Marvel’s offer for Whedon to write and direct the film came with several production mandates. Recently, storyboard animatics leaked for deleted/alternate scenes from the film. Another deleted scene features Black Widow and Cap on the QuinJet, en route to Stark Tower. Quality mirrors.” in response to the baddie’s shady (and violent) theatrics so far.13. During the lab scene aboard the Helicarrier — remember those berries Tony Stark offered Banner? Iron Man’s introduction in the film, cutting from Steve Rogers’ line about leaving the Tesseract in the ocean to Iron Man working underwater, was a late-in-the-edit suggestion from Feige. As the film turns five years old this week (happy birthday!), here are a few things you might know about the making of the shawarma-lovin’ gang’s first (and, so far, best) adventure.1. In the early 2000s, Marvel met with Whedon to discuss being involved on an Iron Man film when New Line had the rights to the project.9. was hungry.15. Posted May 3, 2017 by Phil Pirrello”The Avengers” changed everything.Its several-movies-in-the-making team-up of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes inspired every studio with similar IP to combine their various characters all under one roof; some of these movies were successful (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) while others were “Batman v Superman” and the messy-looking “Justice League.”Joss Whedon’s blockbuster, with its then-$200 million opening weekend record, earned its assembling (see what we did thar?) of characters while sending other studios scrambling to populate their slates with the reigning genre in Hollywood — the comic book movie. With Tony remarking to the puny god “Solid smoke. In the early 2000s, Marvel met with Whedon to discuss being involved on an Iron Man film when New Line had the rights to the project.10. And then, he kind of trashed it. The actor reportedly kept food and snacks hidden all over the lab set and no one could find them. His solution? In the comics, Ant-Man and the Wasp are two of the Avengers’ founding members. Also, Tony’s meeting with Loki at Stark Tower was depicted different. Yank the missile from his launcher, throw it at the bad guy, and ignite it with a repulsor ray.11. Fly much faster.”12. The director bluntly stated: “There was a script. For years, Whedon was on Marvel’s radar for various projects. There just wasn’t a script I was going to film a word of.” (Shots. Whedon’s document, according to Feige, “was incredibly well written and articulate and full of great ideas.” It ended with the tagline “The Avengers: Some Assembly Required.”5. According to a 2014 Whedon biography, the stipulations Marvel gave Whedon included: All the Avengers had to (ahem) assemble, Loki had to be involved, there needed to be a battle between the good guys by the film’s mid-point, and an even bigger final set piece battle for the end of the film between our heroes and the alien army destroying NYC.7. “I don’t think you have anything. Those aren’t props. The film’s tricky shooting schedule made it nearly impossible for all of the cast to be on set in New Mexico at the same time. Whedon had to cut them from his script, however, because the film already had enough characters to juggle without those two in the mix. Fired.)2. For years, Whedon was on Marvel’s radar for various projects. (And they may have also been cut because Marvel could have been early days in the planning of Ant-Man’s solo film by then.)17. Marvel loved that “Some Assembly Required” tagline so much that they used it to end an early teaser for the film that ran at the end of Captain America’s first film in 2011.6. But when they were, Chris Evans texted them one thing — “Assemble.” This lead to a great night out, according to Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg.16. Pretend this draft never happened.” That’s what Whedon told Marvel Studios head and “Avengers” producer Kevin Feige during a meeting on the project. After dropping several megatons of truth bombs, Whedon (according to Vanity Fair) “went home, wrote a five-page treatment of his Avengers vision,” and was then given the go-ahead to reshape the movie to fit his plans for it.4. In his 2014 biography, he said: “I was like, ‘Great, you just gave me your three acts.’ Now all I have to do is justify getting to those places and beyond them.”8. When asked if Tony might be susceptible to Loki’s unique brand of mind control in the film, Natasha quips something to the affect of: “Fly faster. Whedon agreed, and penned several new versions of the scene in a notebook the day of shooting. The shoot had to be done in 92 days, with a quick turnaround for post-production and for all the film’s CG-heavy sequences.9. Marvel is famous for giving their filmmakers story guidelines — think narrative tentpoles — that they want them to hit in their movies. They belong to RDJ. Here’s the breakdown from EW on how that scene came about: “In the original script, [Tony] awakens with a start and asks, “What’s next?” But during filming, Downey was notorious for pushing for variations and felt that line could be something snappier. (Don’t mince words, Joss, tell us what you really think.)3. When Joss Whedon got his hands on it, he did a page-one rewrite.
