Iron Man (2008): Deleted Scenes

Tony Comes Home

christ.

can you imagine though, jarvis all alone in tony’s malibu house? jarvis who of course doesn’t have any physical form at all, jarvis who at this point occupies just the house and tony’s phone—jarvis, who is dependent on tony for everything, who lives essentially in tony’s pocket, suddenly being completely alone for the first time in his silicon life.

and every ten minutes on the dot for days and days and days he accesses the latest news reports, re-calculating and re-calculating tony’s chances at survival, endlessly running the numbers. and nobody told him to do that. tony’s house was empty and dark and nobody told jarvis to keep an eye on the news but he did. jarvis could have just spun down his hard drives and gone into hibernate mode, but he didn’t.

no, he watched the news. he stood vigil. he waited and he hoped that his calculations were wrong. that one day he would be able to say welcome home, sir once more.

Why would you do that to me? I’m gonna go cuddle with my Lacey Bear and my dog Princess Santi and cry. Thanks.

Brooklyn Brothers AU [Blues Brothers style]

Bucky turns to grin at Steve, his metal arm gleaming in the glow of the streetlight. “It’s 216 miles to New York, we got a tank full of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark … and we’re wearing sunglasses.”

Steve nods. “Hit it.”

Fresh out of the ice, Steve “Captain America” Rogers, along with his best friend Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes, visit the Catholic orphanage where they both grew up.To their disappointment, they find out that the seventy years Steve has been frozen (and Bucky’s mind not his own) have not been kind to the orphanage. It’s on the verge of being shut down by the city for code violations, and being sold to the highest bidder. Steve and Bucky learn that if they can come up with $50,000 in ten days, the amount needed to get the ball rolling on necessary improvements, the orphanage can stay open and continue to help children in need of homes and family.

Being men out of time and place, they know that they need to do what they can to keep the orphanage open — as it was here that they met and became friends all those years ago. Taking on this “mission from God,” the two decide to get their ‘band’ back together to raise the money needed. However, it turns out finding their band isn’t as easy as they’d hoped … learning new technology and navigating new New York, the two boys from Brooklyn set off to stage the biggest gig they’ve played in years, running into old friends, old enemies, and making new ones along the way!

Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.

Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.

Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”

"Resistance heroine who led 7,000 men against the Nazis," The Independent. (via madelinecoleman)

DON’T GIVE ME THAT FRENCH SHIT.

Ms. Wake …  had mixed feelings about previous cinematic efforts to portray her wartime exploits … “It was well-acted but in parts it was extremely stupid,” she said. “At one stage they had me cooking eggs and bacon to feed the men. For goodness’ sake, did the Allies parachute me into France to fry eggs and bacon for the men? There wasn’t an egg to be had for love nor money. Even if there had been why would I be frying it? I had men to do that sort of thing.”
