The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Iron Man

Director: Jon Favreau
Year: 2008
Jon Favreau did something completely unheard of when he made Iron Man: He actually stuck close to the comic. No redesigns, no origin changes, no bizarre character tweaks, just a movie lifted right off the pages of the current Iron Man comics. And it pays off in spades. Finding the perfect Tony Stark in Robert Downey Jr., this kicked off the Marvel Age of Movies.
