SPOTTED: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth at Atlantic Station

Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, who have been in Atlanta filming the latest installment of the Marvel "Avengers" series, had a lot of fun during some recent downtime.

Iron Man and Thor, as they're known when they suit up on the job, each took in "Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico" by Cirque du Soleil. Performances take  place under the white and yellow Big Top at the Atlantic Station through Nov. 19.

Details about the show from their publicity folks: "With mesmerizing and refreshing acrobatic performances, Luzia brings traditional and contemporary circus disciplines to a whole new level. Cyr Wheel artists perform the unprecedented feat of rolling and spinning under the rain, while an aerialist suspended from a Trapeze flies and twirls through pouring showers. Hoop Diving is taken onto gigantic treadmills, expanding exponentially the speed and amount of daring leaps executed. Jaw-dropping highlights include a Guinness World Record holder juggling seven pins at breakneck speeds, a male contortionist skillfully twisting his body in the world’s most unimaginable positions, a powerful Aerial Straps specialist defying the laws of gravity at the center of cenote (natural sinkhole), and two football (soccer) freestylers deftly mixing street dance with mind-blowing ball manipulations."
