I don't feel like Downey redefined Stark as much as he played up certain pre-established elements (charismatic playboy) over others. Still, he executed it with ease and aplomb.
I would describe what Snipes did with Blade as more of a redefinition. Blade had not been portrayed quite like that before the movies, and the mark they made on the character is indelible.
Any directors people have in mind for a BP film?
I think Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Tears of the Sun, Shooter) would be fantastic with the right script behind him.
