Adding to the already impressive summer movie offerings, “Captain America: The First Avenger” held its premiere in Los Angeles last night (July 19).

Stars Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell showed up at the El Capitan Theatre for the big shindig, both dressed to impress as they worked it for the cameras before heading inside.

Also in the house were big names like Zoe Saldana, Vanessa Hudgens, and Robert Downey Jr, who noted that he’d been excited for “Captain America” for awhile.

"I've been looking forward to this for a long time, and you know he is the original gangster Steve Rogers so we've gotta make sure this pans out nicely."
