Robert Downey Jr. is more than a household name these days, he’s a literal superhero to “Iron Man” fans everywhere.

At first, Marvel’s casting choice for Tony Stark had a few people scratching their heads, but it wasn’t long before Downey Jr. blew us all away in the very first trailer, and now he embodies Tony Stark and Iron Man in a way that absolutely no one else could. It’s almost mind boggling to consider someone else bringing as much humor and heart to the role.
