Which films were on the brink of a completely different lead star?
With Robert Downey Jr fitting so perfectly as likeable irritant Tony Stark, Christian Bale slipping so easily into the tortured billionaire psyche of Bruce Wayne and Daniel Day-Lewis transforming himself into the epitome of Abraham Lincoln, it's hard to believe that for all of the above roles, there were some serious previous contenders. But contenders there were and some of the not entirely savoury.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
The pint-sized action hero made it his mission impossible to kick ass as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, but could he have romanced Pepper Potts in quite the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man? It seems like we very nearly found out with Cruise at one point in serious contention to play the arrogant but entertaining genius.

Michelle Rodriguez was spotted Zac Efron this week, mere months after separating from Cara Delevigne. Here's a quick look at her relationship history.
Michelle Rodriguez is well known for having an unusual and certainly prolific love life and she's recently been snapped kissing Zac Efron. But is Efron joining the ranks of men and women who have all fallen for the Fast & Furious actress.
Rodriguez has been romantically linked to numerous celebrities over the last decade.
The actress has been ordered to pay her ex, Gabriel Aubry, a substantial sum of money.
Halle Berry has been ordered to pay her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry $16,000 a month in child support. A Los Angeles court told the actress she must pay the Canadian model the substantial monthly sum to support their 6 year-old daughter, Nahla, until she turns 19 years old or graduates from high school. In addition, Aubry was awarded $115,000 in retroactive support.
The 47 year-old film star gave birth to Nahla in 2008 before splitting from Aubry in April 2010. The former couple reached an initial custody agreement in September 2012 after an ongoing ugly dispute during which things even came to blows between Aubry and Berry's now-husband, Olivier Martinez.
The couple now share equal custody of their daughter, according to People. The Oscar-winning actress will also pay for Nahla's schooling but will split healthcare expenses with her ex-lover. She and Martinez were reportedly keen on moving to France and taking Nahla with them but a judge blocked them from taking the child to live outside the US.

Despite a relatively small output, the Wachowski Brother's have made a profound impact on Hollywood. Here are their film listed from critically impeccable hits to flaccid failures.
Press shy and intentionally low-profile, the Wachowski brothers (now brother and sister) occupy a rare position in Hollywood of being household names, responsible for some truly awe-inspiring works of cinematic innovation that have enamoured critics and audiences alike. Yet, unlike directors of a similar calibre and position in pop culture- Tarantino and JJ Abrams for instance, they allow their films to speak for themselves, eschewing the usual directorial promotional tropes and refusing interviews.
Andy and Lana Wachowski rarely appear in public and never commit to promoting their films.
They are so ardent to withhold anonymity in favour of greater artistic candour that it is reportedly highlighted in the Wachowski’s contracts that they will remain unburdened by arduous press commitments. Despite this, the pair are amongst the biggest names in Hollywood, thanks mainly to the Matrix trilogy, which revolutionized the cinematic experience. A Wachowski Bros. picture is synonymous with outstanding cinematography, multi-dimensional plots and a visual feast that is never short of the spectacular. Positing a triple threat of sorts, the Andy and Lana have proven their ability to not only direct a picture, but also to produce and pen truly original and brilliant screenplays in their own right.

As the battle for the content streaming crown rages on, Netflix currently sit atop the hill with a smug grin on their face. But Amazon is slowly but surely chipping away at the Cali-based service, firstly by offering delivery, books plus streaming for a similar price, then by claiming the monumental scalp that is HBO, and now Extant, the Halle Berry sci-fi drama produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and CBS studios.
Described as “a bold and thrilling new series,” Extant stars Berry as an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family after a year in space. Chris Bird, Amazon's Instant Video film and TV strategy director added: "Having such a highly anticipated and star-studded show premiere exclusively on Prime Instant Video is a perfect example of our ongoing commitment to bringing the very best in movie and TV entertainment to our customers in the UK."
X-Men: Days of Future Past has the most successful first-weekend X-Men movie and the biggest opener of the year so far with its hugely successful debut. What’s more, it looks like Fox’s biggest ever debut, and guess which studio was behind James Cameron’s Avatar?
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past
With an estimated global total of $281.1m, Days of Future Past has already earned back its reported $200m budget. The biggest chunk of that came solely from home base, America, with $90.7m over the Memorial Day weekend – oh, and sorry ‘Game of Thrones’ fans; that means a week’s wait for the next episode.
Continuing to be the most original and resonant of the Marvel superhero franchises, the X-men return in the capable hands of director Bryan Singer, who again stirs plenty of meaty subtext beneath the thrilling action. He also has one of the best casts imaginable, including Oscar winners, cinema royalty, rising stars and matinee idols.
Best of all, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the fold after two less-than-thrilling solo adventures. He's at the centre of everything here, as Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) ask Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine's consciousness back 50 years to 1973. His mission is to prevent Dr Trask (Peter Dinklage) from inventing mutant-hunting robots, because they will go out of control and cause a present-day dystopia in which mutants and anyone who sympathises with them are killed. But Wolverine's biggest task will be to get the then-feuding Professor X and Magneto (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) to work together to keep renegade mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from making everything worse.
Thankfully, Simon Kinberg's script doesn't worry too much about the whole time-travel thing, shrugging off dubious logic by keeping the focus on the characters. And there are a lot of people to keep an eye on, which makes the film sometimes feel a bit crowded and leaves some characters barely on-screen at all (blink and you'll miss Anna Paquin's Rogue). The best newbie is Evan Peters' Quicksilver, who gets the film's most entertaining sequence as he races around tweaking an action sequence frame by frame. Other set-pieces are grippingly darker, and some don't quite make sense (why does Magneto feel the need to levitate an entire stadium?).

The world is verging on an apocalyptic disaster as the mutants continue to engage in vicious battles with only one possible outcome - their extinction. Unfortunately, any chance of saving the world from its oncoming fate has been and gone a long time ago - though there could be a way to change history. The two wisest mutants of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, have been at odds for a great many years, but they must this time unite to have any hope of saving their people. They contact Wolverine to help them on their mission to go back in time and convince their younger selves that trouble lies ahead if they don't make the right decisions; Wolverine is the only one who can take on such a task with his healing powers giving him enough strength, but can he possibly save the future?
