Robert Downey Jr. may have reinvigorated his acting career as Tony Stark: Iron Man and playboy billionaire, but is he also a Hollywood script doctor?

While the screenplay to the upcoming "The Avengers" film is on lockdown (most likely protected by a Helicarrier's worth of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents), Downey revealed he's had his security clearance upgraded.

"I just read the script and it's going to be fantastic," Downey told MTV News. "Joss Whedon is awesome and once I tear his script to smithereens and fix it, we're going to have a great movie," the actor said with a classic dry wit. 

Was he kidding... or was the truth about the script just told in jest? You'll have to check out MTV Splash Page for more.
