RDJ joking around on the set of The Avengers

ALBUQUERQUE – Saving the world is serious business for a superhero. But when Robert Downey Jr. starts a battle scene on the set of The Avengers, he doesn't exactly have on an Iron Man face.

Just before cameras roll, the smiling actor whispers up a competition with his co-stars — Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow). Whoever gives the most distracting off-camera look to Tom Hiddleston (enemy Loki) wins.

"For an entire take, they are all giving these seductive, come-on faces," Hiddleston says. "I had to fight to keep a straight face."
