'Avengers: Infinity War' contest pitches lunch with Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr., aka Iron Man, invites fans to the "Avengers: Infinity War" movie set this summer to raise money for some of his favorite charities.

Any Marvel fan would kill to hang out on the set of "Avengers: Infinity War" with Iron Man, Spider-Man and the rest of the superheroes in the upcoming movie.

In a video posted Tuesday, "Iron Man" actor Robert Downey Jr. offers a chance for a fan and a friend to win an invitation to the set of "Infinity War" this summer.

The video gives a brief behind-the-scenes look at the film being shot -- complete with plenty of green screen and Tom Holland (Spider-Man) wearing a motion-capture suit.

Downey promises "unprecedented access" to the set, including the men's bathroom (complete with Holland joking about leaving his own personal mark on the facilities). In addition to set access, winners will also get to eat lunch with Downey and ask him "all your burning questions."

Fans can learn more about this campaign on Omaze, a celebrity-focused fundraising website. People who donate via Omaze are automatically entered in the contest, plus the bigger the donation the more chances you get to win. You can also earn perks like signed movie photos and collectible toys.

For this campaign, Omaze is helping to raise money for Random Act Funding, a charitable group founded by Downey and his wife, Susan Downey, that backs organizations such as CRI-Help, Atlanta Children's Shelter, Children's Restoration Network and Covenant House Georgia.

In other campaigns, Omaze has sent fans to the movie sets of "The Force Awakens," "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," "The Last Jedi" and the young Han Solo movie.

"Avengers: Infinity War" is scheduled to hit theaters worldwide on May 4, 2018.
