Are you in need of an Iron Man fix? It's been two months since the DVD came out and you've already found the Easter eggs and watched it often enough to make your significant other put Iron Man underpants on his or her Christmas shopping list. How else are you supposed to get your fix? Filming hasn't even started for the sequel! Have no fear, my jittery friend. Relief has come through in the form of Jeff Bridge's personal photo diary, Making Iron Man.
On my commute to work this morning, I was behind a guy with one of those bumper stickers that says "If you can read this, I could slam on my brakes and sue you." It's funny, sure, but the sentiment behind it, that these days you can sue anyone you want for the slightest wrong, was only reinforced by the bus that I was stuck behind 10 minutes later with one of those awesome "ACCIDENTES!" ads on the back where they pretty much go right out and say they'll sue anyone you want for anything you want, and not only won't they charge you for it, but they'll do the whole thing in Spanish. The pervasive litigiousness of our society persists everywhere, from the back of a Metro bus, right into the DVDs you have on your Christmas list. Number one on my list is Iron Man, and if you think it has avoided being touched by the busy wand of the lawsuit fairy, you're wrong.
Access Hollywood has scored a first look at a deleted scene from the upcoming Iron Man DVD, and while it doesn't exactly have Iron Man in it, it does have Tony Stark demonstrating his reputation for being a man of steal. Stark pulls a Bruce Wayne and creates a decadently expensive cover story for his mission to the Middle East by throwing a massive party at his house in Dubai. Sequestering himself in his room with two bikini-clad ladies, he then steals a third girl from somebody else on the way -- kinda mean, especially since he then ditches them all to fly off under cover of fireworks. And here we just thought he flew there from California. Check out the clip after the jump.
It's really hard for me to think of any way in which the first Iron Man movie could have been any cooler, which means that the second one is going to have to raise the bar a little. Luckily, director Jon Favreau is planning on strapping the bar to a jetpack. According to an interview with Collider, not only is Favreau hoping to emulate Dark Knight and shoot parts of Iron Man 2 in IMAX, but he's giving serious consideration to shooting some of it in 3D, as well. So let me get this straight: Iron Man will be really big and three-dimensional? Well, slap my ass and call me the Living Laser.
