Default Why did Iron Man do so well?

In its opening weekend, it grossed $98 million dollars. Was Iron Man really THAT popular of a character from Marvel or was it because Robert Downey did such a damn good job portraying him?

I beg the question because a few months later, The Incredible Hulk only grossed $55 million in its opening weekend and I thought Hulk was the more popular character.

From my point of view I've always thought Iron Man lame, I guess judging by his short lived cartoons in the past kind of reinforced that too, Robert Downey made the character cool for the first time, at least that's what I think, hell I even bought the DVD because of it but to this day I haven't picked up a single Iron Man comic, so yeah RDJ made the movie popular, if you had someone like Nicolas Cage who was rumored back in the 90's then it would've been awful.

Hulk has always been popular but as it's been said in other threads the Ang Lee film was still fresh in peoples minds.

Because RDJ played the character so well. Because of the awesome suits and seeing Tony start from scratch, being there through his process. Because of the witty one liners and just, everything. I totally love this movie. I fell in love with RDJ after seeing it. Haven't looked back!
