Avengers: Infinity War was one of the most expensive films to make, and Monday’s premiere was appropriately blockbuster, taking over an entire block of Hollywood Boulevard with simultaneous screenings in three theaters. Not only was the purple carpet (in honor of the mauve-hued villain Thanos) remarkably star-studded — virtually everyone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was there (with the notable exception of Captain America Chris Evans, who was locked into his Broadway show) — but it doubled as an exhibition, loaded with costumes and props from the studio’s 10-year run. Click through to see the highlights.

<p>All the celebs stopped to talk to fans — and Star-Lord and Loki used the masses as a backdrop for a photo op. Hiddleston told Yahoo Entertainment that he expects the film will live up to the hype. “I do have the sense that it’s monumental — like spectacular — beacuse I think there are so many people who have created these characters with such care and attention over the years. … The drama and conflict and also humor that happens in the space between all these characters is what makes it unique.” (Photo: Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images for Disney) </p>
