Happy Hogan says he's in trouble for fighting a member of the paparazzi.

Jon Favreau shot a scene for Avengers: Infinity War as Happy Hogan that has him him pitted against the paparazzi. 

In a deleted scene from the Marvel blockbuster, Favreau's Hogan (Tony Stark's best friend and bodyguard) is keeping tabs on Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) as they walk through a park in New York. 

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.
