Remember the incredible scene in Iron Man 3 which begins with Ellen Brandt rocking up posing as an officer of homeland security to arrest our man Tony?
A chaotic fight scene erupts which culminates with Tony placing his metal dog tags into a microwave and opening a gas valve to blow up the Tennessee diner, killing Brandt in the process.
Well, unused storyboards for the film, published last week by Filmsketchr, show a very different, but ultimately just as deadly, end for Brandt.
