Ben Mendelsohn and other Marvel stars have been spotted filming new series Secret Invasion at an 18th century hall in Yorkshire.

The actor – who stars as Talos in the Marvel universe - was seen smiling as he arrived at Halifax’s famous Piece Hall in a silver Mercedes people carrier.

He was joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, who has appeared in Peaky Blinders and Vera, and two stunt doubles for actor Samuel L Jackson, who will reprise the role of Nick Fury in the Disney Plus show.

Hundreds of crew members were also seen on the set and the building where filming was taking place was closed to members of the public.

It’s thought an action scene was being filmed as smoke was spotted in the air and a firefighter and a fire engine were on set.

Messages that onlookers have posted on Twitter suggest that the Hall could be doubling as a location in Russia, as signs written in Russian were seen hanging around the square outside.
