He takes a rather humble attitude toward being credited with the explosion of superhero films following 2008's Iron Man.

"I think I was at the forefront of something that was coming into being, and I think it has carried me as much as I have informed it. That's the healthy way to look at it. It's so easy to become inflated by the successes, but what they really are are long, strong trends. It's just another wave." 

Downey and his wife, Susan, grace the cover of the Oct. 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Click here to see more from the couple, and check out exclusive photos of them together here.
