The thing is having them seem distinctively different while they both play similar roles (comedic relief). Maybe Clint's sense of humor is going to be dry and sarcastic as opposed to Tony's witty and upbeat style, idk but something needs to set them apart.
On a side note, it'll also be interesting to see how Spidey's sense of humor in his movie differs from Iron Man's and Hawkeye's.
Watch Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol. Renner's character had comedy cos he wasn't used to the field work as much as the other agents. his humor was like what you said, dry, sarcastic, and situational.
