Shane Black And Drew Pearce Share 18 Incredible Iron Man 3 Secrets | The first cut was over three hours long
The first cut was over three hours long

Shane Black: By the way, a fun fact – although also a tragic and scary fact – is that the movie’s assembly cut came in at 3 hours and 15 minutes, and it ended up being 1 hour 59 minutes. We cut 75 minutes of footage. Picture sitting still for 1 hour and 15 minutes. That’s a movie. We lost a movie out of the movie. And I don’t know how we did it, and that’s the miracle – it’s always a leap of faith. I never would have believed we could cut it down and still have it make sense.

4 Extended Edition?
I am REALLY hoping for an extended cut of IM3 on blu-ray, knowing how much hit the cutting room floor. Probably nothing but a dream, but there should at least be deleted scenes - preferably branching into the actual feature... More
