TONY STARK'S ALCOHOLISM SCRAPPED FROM 'IRON MAN 3'

 
TONY STARK'S ALCOHOLISM SCRAPPED FROM 'IRON MAN 3'

Iron Man 3 director Shane Black revealed that Tony Stark's alcoholism was asked to be removed from the original draft of the script by the studio. Black told Comicbookmovie.com, "I think we were just told by the studio that we should probably paint Tony Stark as being kind of an industrialist and a crazy guy, or even a bad guy at some points, but the... stuff of him being an alcoholic wouldn't really fly." Screenwriter Drew Pearce added, "In our first draft Tony was a bit more rock 'n' roll... It's... kind of a 'pick your battles' thing; alcoholism is a massive problem but it's also not the best villain for a movie."
