The highly-anticipated Marvel film is set to feature a number of superheroes including Captain America, Thor and Downey Jr's 'Iron Man'.
When quizzed by Access Hollywood's Billy Bush about the current status of 'The Avengers', the 45-year-old remarked, "I think we're going to do something extraordinary". Downey Jr, who appeared on the red carpet with his wife Susan Levin, confirmed that he had met with his co-stars Chris Hemsworth who plays 'Thor' and Chris Evans who is set to play 'Captain America' and added that they were all keen on making a "stellar movie". The actor is current shooting the sequel to Guy Ritchie's 'Sherlock Holmes' and he explained, "The funny thing is we're almost done shooting the second 'Sherlock' movie, so we were just in London five seconds ago and we flew in to do this. We have like three more weeks of shooting".
As well as working on 'The Avengers' and 'Sherlock Holmes 2', Downey Jr is also rumoured to be starring in the 2012 comedy movie 'How to Talk to Girls', which is currently in pre-production.
