By

Black and co-writer Drew Pearce said that Gwyneth Paltrow's character slept with Guy Pearce's villain Aldrich Killian in an early incarnation of the film.

"In the second draft, Pepper slept with Killian because he was so pheromonally enhanced with Extremis that she couldn't resist him," Black told Empire.

"Also, she was angry at Tony. Then he makes a sex tape and broadcasts it in Home Depot!"

Pearce added: "That seems audacious even by our standards. It was definitely groundbreaking."

The pair also revealed that the movie's original running time was 3 hours and 15 minutes, with 75 minutes having to be removed for the finished cut. Scenes lost include a car chase and additional villains Mallen (from the Extremis comic book arc) and Simon Krieger.
