If [movie id=”390378″]”Iron Man 2″[/movie] fans heading to the theater are hoping to see what MTV News has dubbed “the repulsor moment” in the flick, they may be disappointed to find that the scene didn’t make the final cut. Those in need of a refresher can watch what we alluded to, at the 2:13 mark, in the trailer that premiered in March.
But moviegoers aren’t the only ones in the dark about the moment in question. “A repulsor? Oh, yeah. … It’s not in the film?” Scarlett Johansson said when MTV News asked her about the now-deleted scene. “Am I with Robert [Downey Jr.]? I don’t know. I have not yet seen the film, so I’ll be looking out for that.
“But there is a scene where Natalie is sort of cozying up to Tony, and I do have that repulsor, as you call it,” she said of her character, Natalie Romanoff, a.k.a. the Black Widow. “There was a moment where there was a little bit of repulsion, a jolt of some kind. Maybe it didn’t make it into the movie, I don’t know.”
Although that particularly explosive scene didn’t make the film, Johansson relished in the action scenes that did. “It was a bit daunting at first, especially when I was watching whatever Tom Harper, our stunt coordinator, had cut together, these sequences that he was planning and choreographing,” Johansson recalled. “It was like, ’I’m going to be doing that in how many months?’ It just seemed like it’d be really painful. And it was. It all paid off in the end.”
