Did Marvel Originally Plan For War Machine To Kill Justin Hammer In IRON MAN 2?

Storyboards created by John Mann, have revealed an alternate Iron Man 2 scene in which War Machine, played by Don Cheadle, would have shot Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) at the Stark Expo.



Based on the storyboards created by John Mann, it appears as though Marvel was planning to kill off Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer character in Iron Man 2. The alternate scene was set to take place at the Stark Expo right after Hammer unveiled Vanko's (Mickey Rourke) armored drones. In the original version, Vanko seizes control of Rhodes' armor and attacks Iron Man. Later we see Hammer trying to figure out how his drones were also taken over by Vanko. He is confronted by Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and put under arrest. But in the alternate scene, when Vanko takes control of War Machine he has Rhodes' armor attack Justin Hammer. Since Hammer isn't wearing any type of protective armor, I believe it is safe to assume he would've died.

Below the storyboards you can find a video of the original scene. You can also find another set of storyboards created by Mann that feature the Monaco fight that Iron Man was against Ivan Vanko/Whiplash.
