#7 Iron Man (2008)

Main Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Favreau and Terrence Howard.

Tony Stark began as a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. But a tragic event humbles him (okay, maybe only a little) and he begins to correct his ways. It’s an amazing journey we’re all lucky to have witnessed. RDJ brilliantly brings Tony Stark/Iron Man to life.

A round of applause for Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, the movie that started it all! Without it, the Marvel Cinematic Universe would either not exist at all or not be the huge success it is now. There was a lot of controversy surrounding Robert Downey Jr.’s casting as Tony Stark. As you probably already know, ten years ago, RDJ was not the lovable guy we all now know. But Disney and Marvel stuck to their gut feeling, and we are so glad they did! The actor didn’t let us down, it’s the comeback story of the century!

Fast forward ten years, The Marvel Cinematic Universe has released 20 movies (and counting!) and Iron Man is still one of the best installments in the franchise. Robert Downey Jr. is one of the highest-paid actors and the Marvel Cinematic one of the most successful movie franchises of all-time.
