|Iron Man Three (2013) - Ellen Brandt (Stephanie Szostak)|
Check out Iron Man 3 storyboards by Darrin Denlinger!
The scene where Tony Stark goes to Rose Hill North Carolina and fights Ellen Brandt (Stephanie Szostak) is a highlight, but it could have been very different. Storyboard artist Darren Denlinger sent me some exclusive storyboards from Iron Man 3 that show an explosive battle between Brandt and Stark that raged across the small town. Denlinger said "it was trimmed to fit locations." Darren Denlinger is a professional storyboard artist who's worked on big budget films like Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), The Avengers (2012) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).

While some scenes are the same, like burning through the sheriff to get the gun, others are completely different like blowing up Brandt with a car instead of a microwave. Plus, the character is called Frost instead of Brandt.
