that part when he’s testing possible replacements for the palladium core

why did they delete this scene

somebody please explain this to me

it was replaced with that bit where JARVIS says he’s delighted to see a video of tony with his clothes on

but i

just

this scene is 459% more effective in expressing the seriousness of the situation

that whole thing that happens before pepper gets there EXPLAINS why he acted like a big child when pepper got there

oh my fucking god

why did they delete this scene. why did they do this

oh god why

I MEAN THE SENSE OF URGENCY GOING ON HERE IS UNBELIEVABLE

WHEN THE LITTLE IRON MAN HOLOGRAM DIES I JUST??? DIED ALONG WITH IT. TONY’S FACE KILLED ME. THIS KILLED ME 

WHY WASNT IT IN THE MOVIE I DONT UNDERSTAND

And when Pepper admits to being sick, Tony is probably scared for real. His immune system must have been blown to hell what with the reactor itself and now with polladium

Thing is… Tony knew about the poisoning since Iron Man1, the green juice we see DUM-E making? The green juice we see him drinking constantly?

There’s a scene with that same stuff in the first movie.

This just proves that Tony’s been actively searching for replacements since then. Maybe at first as a side project because he was finishing the exoskeleton/armour prototype, because hey he had the time, right? The poisoning wasn’t that urgent!

6-months later (MCU time-wise if I’m not mistaken) we seen this scene.

And I find it interesting that he acts like a child here to distract Pepper from his research, while he keeps her focus on him, he methodically erases all traces of what he was doing. Because he knows that Pepper’s FAR from stupid.

While she might not have the technical knowledge he has, they have spent enough time together that she would have picked up that something wasn’t right. So what does he do? He jokes about the money, he gives away something /she/ cares about to divert her attention from the real issue.

And it works. It fucking works.

I’ve seen a lot of people going ‘oh she should have realised that something was going on’ but Tony didn’t want her to find out. He knew her well enough to push her buttons and push her away from him. He knew how to act so she would focus on SI instead of him.

Tony might have been actively preparing her to take over when he died. Because that rendering? Tony has tested all known elements 3-times over and found nothing. He’s about ready to accept that he will die. He’s arrogant enough to go ‘if I can’t find it no one can, so I might as well keep it under wraps,’ he has given up hope in Iron Man 2.

That movie is Tony going through his list of ‘things to do before I die,’ while being obnoxious with the people he loves so they won’t miss him that much when he dies.

Have I mentioned that Tony’s socially stunted when it comes to relationships? Because he is, and it shows.

Hoooly shit.

@xtaticpearl @lavengadoraaa

actually, adding to what was said: palladium is used in car parts, which explains why he used it in the first place

now, if you remember, Tony is seen working on his father’s car in his workshop prior to flying out to Afghanistan, so i find it hard to believe, knowing what he knows about cars, mechanics, etc. that he wouldn’t have known it was a toxic metal, meaning he was aware that it wouldn’t be a long term solution

remember, when Rhodey sees it, he says to him, “You had this, inside your body?” Rhodey knows his shit too, I wouldn’t put it past him to have recognized palladium for what it was – he’s the SI liaison, he would know different compounds & their various uses, also, he’s an engineer himself

That movie is Tony going through his list of ‘things to do before I die,’ while being obnoxious with the people he loves so they won’t miss him that much when he dies.

*all the crying*

Marvel always cuts their best scenes.
