Tony Stark will be happy to know that the world premiere of "Iron Man 3" will take place not too far from his own high-tech home/workshop in Malibu.

The first installment of Marvel's Phase Two of superhero films is officially upon us as "Iron Man 3" will be making its global debut on Wednesday, April 24 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. But you'll be able to watch it live as it happened right here on Yahoo! Movies at movies.yahoo.com/iron-man-3-live.

Attendees will include several stars from the film, including Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine), Sir Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin), Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian), Rebecca Hall (Maya Hansen), Paul Bettany (voice of Jarvis), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Ty Simpkins (Harley), James Badge Dale (Eric Savin), William Sadler (Sal Kennedy), Dale Dickey (Mrs. Davis) and Stephanie Szostak (Ellen Brandt). Also present will be director/co-writer Shane Black, co-writer Drew Pearce, Marvel mega-producer Kevin Feige (producer) and executive producers Louis D'Esposito, Charles Newirth, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Alan Fine and, of course, Stan Lee (who will also no doubt be making some sort of on-screen cameo in the film as well).

The cast and crew will be getting the ultra-red carpet treatment as they're set to be transported to the El Capitan Theatre via Audi's A8L TDI and Q7 TDI vehicles. Audi is a co-title sponsor of the "Iron Man 3" premiere and is featured throughout the "Iron Man" trilogy, with the high-performance R8 serving as Tony Stark's ride of choice in the third installment.

The "Iron Man 3" gang will be joined at the premiere by several Marvel Films alums such as Anthony Hopkins, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Jaimie Alexander, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough, Sebastian Stan, Kat Dennings and Hayley Atwell.

Some actors who are new to the Marvel Universe will also be in attendance, including Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Zachary Levi (from "Thor: The Dark World"), plus Anthony Mackie and Emily VanCamp (from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"). Other featured guests include Josh Bowman, Ty Burrell, Zendaya Coleman, Joe Cornish, Peter Facinelli, Roshon Fegan, Miguel Ferrer, Jennifer Grey, Frank Grillo, Max Hernandez, Olivia Holt, Leo Howard, Taran Killam, Laura Marano, Maia Mitchell, Raini Rodriguez, Debby Ryan, Bella Thorne, Bradley Whitford, Calum Worthy and Nick Zano.
