The results are in with regards to our ultra-popular Most Anticipated Summer Action Hero and Movie Villain polls, and the outcome isn't all too surprising. When it comes to your most anticipated summer movie action hero, the winner is, of course, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man in Iron Man 2 (due in theaters on May 7th). Iron Man came in at a whopping 35%, while the closest to him was Angelina Jolie in Salt with 17%. Russell Crowe (Robin Hood), Jaden Smith (The Karate Kid) and Sylvester Stallone (The Expendables) round out the top five, while poor Bradley Cooper (The A-Team) sits all lonely in last place with 4% of the vote.

On the villain side of things…I mean, c'mon – is there anyone we despise more than Bryce Dallas Howard's Victoria in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse? This is Howard's first go at the role (the character was previously played by Rachelle Lefevre in both New Moon and Twilight), and so fans will need to warm up (or down) to her. That said, even with Howard taking over the role for the first time, fans are still more than pumped to see her run all sorts of naughty deeds with the character. Iron Man 2's villains (Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke) took the number 2 and 3 spots on the list, while Val Kilmer (MacGruber) and Eric Roberts (The Expendables) rounded out the top five. (And can I just say how cool it is to have a poll that features Mickey Rourke, Val Kilmer and Eric Roberts on it! Right on – rock on old school!)
Do you think these folks deserved their winnings, or should someone else have taken over those top spots? Check out the full poll results below…
