We’re just a few weeks away from the arrival of “Iron Man 2” on DVD and Blu-Ray, but we have yet another sneak peek at one of the bonus features you’ll find on both versions of the film.
Last week, we brought you “Iron Man 2” director Jon Favreau’s memories of working with DJ AM during the party scene at Tony Stark’s mansion, and this week we have a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most memorable scenes from the film: the brawl at Monaco Grand Prix.
As anyone who’s seen the movie knows, this scene also marked the debut of Tony’s briefcase armor (a.k.a. the Silver Centurion armor).
Way back when the armor premiered, we gave you a brief rundown of the armor’s history in the Iron Man universe, and even heard from War Machine co-creator Bob Layton about his own experience with the scene and armor.
“Because it’s an action movie, it was something that was very challenging to do, and that was part of the appeal for me,” said Mickey Rourke of the scene, which also featured the first time his character, Whiplash, battled with Tony.
The new clip also features a surprise appearance from Garry Shandling, who played a US senator in the movie.
“Iron Man 2” hits DVD and Blu-Ray September 28.
And just in case you want another look at the finished scene, here’s a clip from “Iron Man 2” featuring the briefcase armor in action:
