Robert Downey Jr, however, IS Tony Stark.
Funny, because he's pretty much "TINO". Tony In Name Only. I don't know everything about Iron Man/Tony Stark, but the guy we saw in the movies isn't the one I've seen in the past. Downey plays his own version of the character, but people like his take because he's a charismatic actor.
RDJ has the avantage of being the only the person to play the live action Iron Man/Tony Stark, unlike Christian Bale and Batman/Bruce Wayne.
