Avengers: Infinity War Deleted Scene Reveals A Fan-Favorite Character's Return

"You two should just elope."

15 Comments

Now that Avengers: Infinity War is getting its home release, there are some very interesting tidbits about the film seeing the light of day for the first time. For instance, did you know there was a fan-favorite character that was originally featured in the movie before his scene was cut out?

In the deleted scenes that come with the digital release of Infinity War, it's revealed that Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) once had a very funny role in the film. As it plays out in the theatrical version of the movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) discuss potentially having a child while on a walk in New York City. The scene ends when Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) summons Stark.

No Caption Provided

A deleted version of that scene plays quite a bit longer, though, as Happy appears on a golf cart and complains about having to hold off the paparazzi while the two have their personal chat. "You two should just elope because this media circus that's going on is driving me crazy," he tells the couple. "This is me on edge because I'm trying to keep all the pictures out of the paper and off the internet so your wedding's not ruined. Remember that kid from TMZ that you had me trade paint with on the FDR Drive? Well, I got a case against me now!"

It's not hard to see why the moment was cut from the final version of the film--it doesn't exactly advance the plot at all and it mostly played for jokes. In a movie like Infinity War, practically everything means something. Still, one more moment of levity before everything falls apart would have been nice.

The digital release of Avengers: Infinity War comes with a slew of other special features, including a roundtable discussion with the various MCU directors and even more deleted scenes. It's available now. The film will arrive on Blu-ray on August 14.

Happy overstayed his welcome for a long time now. You can argue even Downey started to get boring and repetitive with time, imagine his sidekicks? I can't even stand to look at Pepper, after the iron man 3 disaster... man, it's hard. She can wear the armor + those weird fire powers. Why she is not out there fighting in a ridiculous way? Disney is just pretending that abomination of a movie never happened, lol Instead of Pepper, we have Banner piloting a iron man suit. Just wonderful.

@gleencross: I assumed those powers were temporary. She would be a great choice to be the Iron lady.

Always odd when the video in the article isn't actually about the thing it's talking about.
