Robert Downey Jr. shares his worries for the future Marvel's installment of 'The Avengers', explaining why the superhero characters should be treated with respect in the film.

Having been officially signed to once again star as Iron Man in "", now opens up about the difficulties of making a film with multiple superheroes. To Splash Page MTV, the actor who plays Tony Stark in "" expresses his concern stating, "If we don't get it right it's really, really going to suck."

Continuing his remark, he says, "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." On his part in the project, he explains, "I think its important that I do what I'm supposed to do which is keep my side of the street clean."

"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."

Back in late October, Marvel Studios officially announced the joining in of Robert Downey Jr. and for "The Avengers". While Downey Jr. will take on his Iron Man character once again, Cheadle will replace as Colonel James 'Rhodey' Rhodes. Meanwhile, on "Avengers" itself, it is slated for a July 15, 2011 U.S. release.
