This scene is funny, there’s no doubt about that but we’re not sure if it would have been the right way to open the film. Seeing the Paramount logo followed by Stark’s face in a toilet isn’t the epic intro a superhero should have. They made the right decision.

Which opening do you prefer: the alternate version or the one used in the film?
