Directing the cast of The Avengers is like "herding kittens", Jeremy Renner has joked.

Ahead of the premiere of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Renner told Good Morning Britain that director Joss Whedon has a hard task getting the cast, which includes Robert Downey Jr and Scarlett Johansson, to act professional - because they're all having so much fun.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is the follow-up to the hit 2012 film Avengers Assemble - both of which were directed by Whedon.

Jeremy, who plays Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, said: "We have way too much fun together and just nothing gets done, so poor Joss has to deal with us."
