The first part of the scene is in the film, with the couple talking about a dream Tony had the night before where Pepper was pregnant. But there was a middle section to the scene, before Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) arrives, when Hogan rolls up in a golf cart saying the couple needs to set a wedding date so he can stop keeping the paparazzi at bay.
At one point, Hogan says he is in trouble for fighting a TMZ paparazzo that was trailing the couple. "Now I got to go to court," he adds.
The Hogan moment ends with him chasing off another photographer he sees taking pictures from a nearby bush.
"I see you, Burt!" Hogan yells. "Son of a bitch. Burt! Come here!"
Infinity War is available digitally now and on Blu-ray on Aug. 14.
