IRON MAN 3: Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) Was Supposed To Die!
Scoop! I just came across some intriguing Iron Man 3 storyboards that were created by storyboard artist, Dan Sweetman. They include an alternate version of Happy Hogan's confrontation with Savin, in which Happy (Jon Favreau) would've died.
Do you think going with a coma was a better decision than killing Happy off? I wonder how much more powerful the following scene with a distraught Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) issuing a televised threat to the Mandarin would've been if Happy was dead. Instead Marvel and director Shane Black chose the safe route and had Happy wake up from his coma so that he could watch Downton Abbey.
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce. The film opened in theaters May 3, 2013. It stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.
