Actor Ben Mendelsohn and other Marvel stars have been spotted filming at Halifax’s famous Piece Hall.

The Star Wars actor, 52, was all smiles as he arrived on the set of Marvel’s Secret Invasion on Friday
in a silver Mercedes People Carrier – wearing a black jacket, grey top and blue jeans.

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 was spotted in the same location yesterday.
