While there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Robert Downey Jr. was born to play the role of Marvel’s billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark, he certainly had trouble staying in character, as shown in the Gag Reel to Iron Man 3.
In the short, yet hilarious collection of outtakes from the film, Downey finds it increasingly difficult to keep a straight face.
About midway through the clip he even busts out his best “Sherlock Holmes” accent and quotes “By jove, I think we’ve got it!”
This funny collection of outtakes comes to as part of Marvel’s blockbuster superhero adventure’s Blu-Ray.
Yahoo! Movies gave fans their first look at the clip.
Another little gem that you will find on the Blu-Ray is a deleted scene featuring the Mandarin, played by veteran actor Ben Kingsley, who is the mysterious figure head behind a series of attacks plaguing our favorite metal-suited hero.
In the deleted scene, the Mandarin receives a phone call shortly after Stark’s right-hand man, Happy Hogan, was nearly blown to pieces outside of the Chinese Theater. He says ominously, “Prep the set. Let’s make television.”
Iron Man 3 is scheduled to be released on Blu-Ray (both 3-D and standard versions), DVD, and Digital Copy on September 24th.
