Robert Downey Jr. is cocky, egotistical, and an absolute ladies man. Not him per se, but when he's playing Tony Stark aka Iron Man, that is.

Apparently, Downey is a pretty nice and down-to-earth guy, because he's got everybody from director Joss Whedon and co-stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and Mark Ruffalo singing him praises. Not just as an actor, but as Whedon puts it, the 'leader of the band.'

Apparently, he's that awesome because Thor himself calls Downey the 'the Godfather of the Avengers.' Hiddleston and Ruffalo also chime in about what a great guy Iron Man is. Check out the clip to see and hear the entire thing.

The clip is part of a 90-minute long documentary entitled 'Assembling The Ultimate Team that are included as extras if you buy the Avengers Assemble UK Blu-ray disc. It was pretty short, which is why we've got another clip for you below.

It's from the same documentary, but this time, it casts the highlight on none other than Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Enjoy!
