Robert Downey Jr. got candid during his Tuesday appearance on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

The actor talked to the host about the upcoming release of Marvel's "Iron Man 3." During their chat, Stewart asked the star whether we'll see him in more "Iron Man" sequels.

Downey Jr. said he wasn't sure yet as he's still in talks with the "Iron Man" filmmakers.

"I had a long contract with them and now we're going to renegotiate," said the actor.

To which "The Daily Show" host responded enthusiastically: "You are Iron Man. You are."

Though the film hasn't been released yet in the U.S., "Iron Man 3" has already managed to rake in $195.3 million during its international opening in 42 overseas markets, according to the film's distributor, Disney.

Stewart asked Downey Jr. about the film's global success.

"Everywhere was great. Korea was amazing. China -- I had a ball," Downey Jr. said. "Honestly, I was humbled this time...I'm 48 years old. I'm looking at the back nine. I get to feel like a Beatle."

"Iron Man 3" opens in the U.S. on Friday.
