'Avengers' Cast: Moscow Premiere!

Jeremy Renner, Roberty Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson premiere The Avengers on Tuesday (April 17) at Oktyabr Cinema in Moscow, Russia.

Co-stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and Mark Ruffalo also joined them on the red carpet after promoting the action flick at a photo call earlier in the day.

“None of [our costumes] were comfortable, especially in the middle of the dessert,” Chris recently told Nightline (via ABC News). “We all had [a little air-conditioning unit] option. It was like this T-shirt you’d wear with like a hose that you’d plug in and there was cool water.”

FYI: Scarlett is wearing a Nina Ricci dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, a J/Hadley ring and a Karma El Kahlil cuff.

'Avengers' Cast: Photo Call in Moscow!

Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johansson attend a photo call for their new film, The Avengers, on Tuesday (April 17) in Moscow, Russia.

Co-stars Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Tom Hiddleston also came out for the action flick’s first stop on its international promo tour.

THR reports that The Avengers “could score one of the biggest domestic openings of all time for a superhero pic, if not one of the biggest period” when it hits U.S. theaters May 4 – possibly passing 2008′s The Dark Knight, which bowed to $158.4 million!

Robert Downey Jr. Covers 'Esquire' May 2012

Robert Downey Jr. suits up for the cover of Esquire‘s May issue.

Here’s what the 47-year-old Avengers star had to share with the mag:

On fatherhood and his newborn son: “I guess here’s what’s come to me in the last three weeks: That anticipation and fear are going to come back. Am I going to know what to do with them? Does any new parent, even if you’re not a first-time parent, ever really know what to do? Only thing you have to do, the only requirement, if you can hack it, is to not transfer your own discomfort in the moment to this fresh soul, right? You got to be mindful. I don’t want to be so confident in myself. It’s that balance between being relaxed enough to not be communicating anxiety and present enough to not be creating the very thing that you were anxious about by being so relaxed — because I’ve seen that parenting style, too.”

On his wife Susan: “If I picked for you the 10 worst moments of my life, they were probably the 10 most defining moments of my life. Whether they’re that complete rejection by a girl that doesn’t even know you’re crazy about her, and you are distracted riding your bike to school, and just as you look over at her, you take a complete ass-over flip into a shrub. And the girl just looks at you and keeps on walking with an expression that says, ‘Who is that schmuck?’ And that’s every bit as significant to me as the moment I met Susan, in a rehearsal space with Halle Berry in Montreal 10 years ago, and thought, Wow, she’s pretty damn cute for a boss.”
