Tony Stark actor Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and more Marvel actors are scheduled to walk the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of “Iron Man 3″ Wednesday evening.

Hero Complex readers can watch the premiere live, streamed from Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood at 6 p.m. PDT, in the video below.

The film, which opens in theaters May 3, pits Downey’s genius billionaire superhero against the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) — one of the archvillains in the Iron Man comic books — and introduces several comic characters to the big screen for the first time, among them brilliant biologist Dr. Maya Hansen (played by Rebecca Hall) and Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), the founder of the brain-trust organization AIM.

“Iron Man 3″ is directed by Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”), who takes the reins from “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2″ director Jon Favreau.

Returning cast members include Downey, Paltrow as Stark’s ladylove Pepper Potts, Cheadle as Stark’s pal Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Favreau as bodyguard Happy Hogan. Also walking the red carpet are stars of last summer’s blockbuster hit “The Avengers,” including Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders, as well as Stan Lee and Anthony Hopkins.

Wednesday night’s premiere follows Downey’s worldwide tour promoting “Iron Man 3,” with stops in Seoul, Moscow, Munich, Paris and London.

Watch the premiere live at 6 p.m., and check out scenes from “Iron Man 3″ in the gallery above.
