Downey Jr. Talks Avengers

“If we don’t get it right it’s really, really going to suck,” Downey said in an interview with MTV News about the anticipated "Avengers film. “It has to be the crowning blow of Marvel’s best and brightest because it’s the hardest thing to get right. It’s tough to spin all the plates for one of these characters.”

According to MTV News, "In taking on the role of a key member of the 'Avengers' to such digital fanfare, Downey has in a sense become the face of the operation — at least until other Marvel films such as 'Captain America' and 'Thor' get made (and, likewise, until Marvel figures out how to handle the 'Hulk'). To a lesser actor, this seems like an insurmountable amount of pressure, but Downey remains level-headed, and like any good soldier, knows he’s got a job to do, knows he’s already got a solid team at his side, and looks forward to seeing how the other films will play into the 'Avengers.'"

“I think its important that I do what I’m supposed to do which is keep my side of the street clean,” said Downey. “The danger you run with colliding all these worlds is [director] Jon [Favreau] was very certain that ‘Iron Man’ should be set in a very realistic world. Nothing that happened in ‘Iron Man’ is really outside the realm of possibility. Once you start talking about Valhalla and supersized super soldiers and jolly green giants it warrants much further discussion.”

How will things work out between the different heroes solo adventures and their coming together for the "Avengers" work out? More news to come! Catch ya' later!
