Love/Hate star Tom Vaughan-Lawlor may have secured a part in a major Hollywood film, images released on Thursday suggest.

The Irish actor was seemingly snapped pummeling Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, on the set of the new Marvel blockbuster. 

Wearing a CGI suit that carried a sticker on his shoulder that reads 'EB-MAW' suggests he has been cast as the character Ebony Maw.

According to Digital Trends, Ebony Maw, a member of Thanos’ Black Order, is a member of a crew of evil aliens that marauds around the universe, razing planets and subjugating their inhabitants.

The crew eventually targets Earth and Maw is sent in to deal with Dr. Strange specifically.

The film features a host of big names including Robert Downey Jr, Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo Benicio del Toro and Samuel L. Jackson. 

Avengers: Infinity War is slated for release on April 27, 2018.
