'Steel' (1997)

More than a decade before 'Iron Man' was released, basketball star Shaquille O'Neal starred in 'Steel,' a film about a former military inventor who dons a suit of armor to fight the gangs who are using his inventions to commit crimes. The film flopped at the box office. Also, the character Steel was originally tied into the Superman world of characters, but the film made nearly no reference to the Superman characters, save for O'Neal's already-existing trademark Superman tattoo.
