Stars of the latest instalment of The Avengers series have arrived in Edinburgh ahead of filming.
Social media has been filled with reported sightings of stars in the Capital – with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany amongst those spotted.
Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the series, was seen entering the Balmoral Hotel.
Keen fans have witnessed a number of scenes being shot, with Bettany, who plays Vision, spotted in an action sequence.
Stunt doubles have also been in the city, with Olsen’s double seen with Bettany at Waverley, which is home to a 40ft green screen and cafe facade.
As well as the arrival of two of the stars, it is rumoured that others could be on their way.
Jeremy Renner tweeted a picture of himself on a plane with the caption: ‘It’s time’.
Production got under way last week with lighting and stunt tests taking place in the Old Town. We previously revealed the schedule of the filming and some of the locations that were being used.
Estimates claim that the Avengers will raise more than £10 million for the Capital.
John Donnelly, chief executive of Marketing Edinburgh, said: “Having a high-profile film shoot unquestionably puts Edinburgh on the movie map.”
