Thoughts?

Christian Bale benefitted from playing Batman.

Rambo was a character in a novel named First Blood.But it was Stallone's performance that made it famous

Wish there was a 3rd option since I say they made eachother very popular. Iron Man wasn't a top Hero until the movies came out and RDJ's career was rejuvenated because of the Tony Stark role.

RDJ made Ironman popular

pre RDJ, iron man was cure for insomnia. Infact, he still kinda is. Unbelievably dull hero

Nowadays they more or less write him as RDJ in the comics

Yeah RJD made IronMan popular. IronMans popularity has gone up ever since RJDs take on IronMan became a hit.

Re: RDJ made Iron Man popular or Iron Man made RDJ popular?

RDJ DEFINITELY made the movie. But its because of his performance that he's a big star now. So RDJ made Iron Man AND himself popular.

Its funny, 6 years ago, if someone told you RDJ was going to be the most bankable actor in Hollywood, you'd laugh.

Edit: I'd like to think his official comeback was "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" but I'd be the only one. Love that movie.

I would love to see RDJ in a movie outside IronMan/Sherlock Holmes.I am not yet convinced of his star power.

Re: RDJ made Iron Man popular or Iron Man made RDJ popular?

I would say both.Iron Man would have grossed 200-300 million irrespective of who was in the lead but it was RDJ's performance that made Iron Man an iconic character and the movie a bigger success.RDJ would have never achieve the popularity he has today if he wasn't cast as IM.
