On Avengers: Infinity War red carpet, Vin Diesel's jacket is so Groot

The cast of the biggest Marvel film yet hit the red carpet in Hollywood Monday night, and I'm not crying, you're crying.

It's Geek Christmas. "Avengers: Infinity War" premieres Monday night in Hollywood and the stars are unleashing on the red (technically purple) carpet. 

The highlight? Vin Diesel's jacket is freaking fantastic.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe turns 10 this year, and Infinity War feels like a good way to celebrate -- it's a film that finally brings together all the disparate characters in the Universe onto one screen. Too many characters to stay across? Sure, but that doesn't mean it's not going to be off the chain.

The movie doesn't hit cinemas until Friday (here's everything you need to know before then), but on Monday, it was all about the premiere. 

Stan Lee hit the red carpet to thank fans for supporting the many Marvel franchises over the years.

"I want to thank them for having spent all these years for coming to see my cameos -- and of course watching the movie with it," he said before the film. "And now I think they're going to find the funniest cameo of all."

But beyond the godfather of Marvel, the premiere event was all about checking out favourite characters and stars (as well as some seriously great outfits). 

Here are our highlights:
