Did you know at the set of Capitan America 2. Chris Evans couldn’t tell apart Scarlett Johanson’s stunt doubles from her so he would start talking to them as in they were Scarlett and the stunt doubles played the game ” How long would it take Chris to figure out im not Scarlett” . Apparently the record was 10 minutes.
14 years old: I'm young but I know what I want. This isn't that hard, I'm all grown up already and have everything figured out.
17 years old: Well, this is a little harder than I thought. School is almost ending. What am I going to do with my life?
21 years old: What the fuck is going on? Where are my socks?
So, I run down and I’m like, “Are you okay?!” and she’s like, “I’m fine, I’m fine! Look in the closet!” I look in the closet, I look here, I’m running around looking everywhere and there’s no one there. “Lock the door! Make sure the door is locked!” Okay, I lock the door and I left and then I realised that’s kinda like Cam [his character in Infinitely Polar Bear]. He takes care of like, the emergency but doesn’t get to sleep with her. But that was an icebreaker, because we didn’t really know each other. [x]
I understand that they cut it for pacing and I agree with the choice but I love that in this scene Tony’s first reaction was to pick up a gun and fight and not just run.
I love this deleted scene so much. Not only is it wonderfully proactive, which I adore on principle, it underscores something people tend to gloss over: Tony was a weapons designer and manufacturer. He designed and built weapons for a living. He knows how to use a gun, okay? He can likely take it apart, clean it, improve it, put it back together again, and hit what he aims at. He does not need Natasha or Clint to take him to the shooting range and teach him which end of a gun goes bang. Why doesn’t the gun work here? It jammed. That’s it. It happens.
In short: Tony Stark does not need the suit to be a badass.
