Robert Downey Jr. is a comedy type actor, from what I've seen.

Iron Man is not comedy, Iron Man is a Bad MoFo!
It may not help (if you think the Hulk stunk), but before Bana was cast in it, he was a stand up comedian, followed by a role as a beefy psychotic prisioner.

So, people can change, and Downey Jr has proven himself capable of such roles (Less than Zero, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, A Scanner Darkly, etc)

Inspired casting, IMO.
