The Iron Man (2008) movie is still one of Marvel Studios’ best, but now they have revealed that they cut some really bad scenes.
Iron Man producer Jeremy Latcham reveals that there are several deleted scenes from the Iron Man movie that he describes as embarrassing, so they will never be seen. Since they even filmed as the villain Abu Bakaar (Sayed Badreya), a member of the Ten Rings organization, washed clothes. Something Kevin Feige didn’t like because he thought it would make them look incompetent. Since there was a lot of pressure for the film to be a success. This is how Jeremy Latcham explains it in SR. “There are still three or four deleted scenes from Iron Man that I don’t think will ever be published because they were so bad. I remember Kevin Feige saying to me in 2012, when I was like: Should we remove the deleted scenes of Abu doing laundry? And Kevin said, No. We can never get Gram out doing laundry. People will know that we don’t know what we’re doing. It will be embarrassing if they see these scenes.”
Abu Bakaar (Sayed Badreya) “There was a whole scene in Iron Man where Tony Stark was doing the laundry and I don’t think they’ve ever dated. Someone should look into it, but I don’t think they’ve ever been seen. Tony is doing laundry for the captors, but he’s really breaking the washing machine and stealing parts from it to build the Mark 1 suit. It’s so absurd. It’s crazy.” The scenes from Tony Stark’s captivity that made it into the final cut are great, as he disarms missiles to build armor tough enough to get out of there. Also, that kidnapped time also changes him and he stops being so selfish and becomes a hero.
Everything went well for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The company got heavily into debt with the bank to make the Iron Man movie and start a saga, so its eventual flop could even mean the end of Marvel as we know it today. Luckily, thanks to the directorial skill of Jon Favreau and the overwhelming charisma of Robert Downey Jr., it was a huge success, grossing more than $585 million worldwide. But the best thing is that they were able to expand their stories to unsuspected limits. In fact, 15 years later it is still the most powerful franchise. Although, it must be recognized that there is a certain exhaustion in the formula.
