Watch A Live Stream Of The L.A. Red-Carpet Premiere For 'The Avengers' HERE!

May 4 is almost upon us, but first, watch Hollywood's biggest names get their first look at Marvel's long-in-the-making "The Avengers".

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we've got a link to the live stream from YouTube of tonight's Los Angeles red-carpet event at Hollywood's El Capitan Theater celebrating Earth's Mightiest Heroes finally making their big-screen arrival. The show starts at 9 PM ET/PT.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johannson and Samuel L. Jackson, this big build-up all started with 2007's hit Marvel Studios debut of "Iron Man", then continued with tie-ins through "The Incredible Hulk" and finally 2011's "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger". Now, the summer's first blockbuster gets in the first shots in 2012's comic one-upmanship battle that includes July's "The Dark Knight Rises" from Warner Bros. and Sony's web-slinger reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man".

"The Avengers" hits theaters everywhere May 4.
