All-time Top 10, Batman & Robin, Best comic book movie performances, Captain America, Joker, Magneto, The Avengers, Wolverine, X-Men
When “Iron Man 3″ comes to theaters Friday, Robert Downey Jr. will have played the titular character in five movies, second only to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and moves him out of the four-way tie with Christoper Reeve’s Superman, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X and Michael Gough’s Alfred from the 1989-1997 Batman series.
