Even after coming off the hugely successful Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. isn't resting on his laurels.MTV recently caught up with Downey Jr. on the set of his new film, Sherlock Holmes, where he had some interesting remarks about the Marvel superhero conglomorate film, The Avengers, which is still a ways off, hitting theaters on July 15, 2011.

"...if we don't get it right, it's really going to suck. 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,' Downey said.

When asked if Iron Man 2 will start setting up his role in The Avengers, Downey Jr. added this.

"It seems natural that it would at least introduce that factor. My inclination is to bring it another step. The danger you run with colliding all these worlds is that Jon was very certain that Iron Man should be set in a very realistic way. 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."
