4. Don Cheadle – “War Machine” in Iron Man 2
Actor Don Cheadle turned heads in the super-action sequel Iron Man 2 starring opposite Robert Downey, Jr. and taking over the role recently portrayed by Terrence Howard. As Iron Man’s sidekick, he phases from Lt. Col. James Rhodes into a superhero named War Machine who helps Iron Man regulate. He takes his character to the extreme with body armor fit for a soldier: a sick double-barreled cannon, a force shield and sharp shooters to name a few.
