He walked into Pride and Provenance for lunch and was later seen leaving The Piece Hall.

The historic location was closed for a week and turned into a film set for the filming of the six-part Marvel show, which will screen on Disney Plus.

Other cast members are believed to include Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald and Carmen Ejogo.

There is still a lot of activity around The Piece Hall today, with people transporting camera and filming equipment through the historic building, a huge light placed overhead, and many trucks and other vehicles parked.
