Iron Man

For decades, Iron Man was a second-tier character in the Marvel Universe. That all changed when director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr. brought Tony Stark, billionaire industrialist and genius inventor, to the big screen in 2008’s ‘Iron Man.’ The film was a surprise smash and became the first official entry in the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe. Downey reprised his career-defining role in ‘Iron Man 2’ and ‘3,’ and in ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ Although no ‘Iron Man 4’ is currently scheduled, Downey is expected to play a major role in the next Captain America film, ‘Civil War,’ and both parts of ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’
