The Avengers have assembled once more for an epic superhero movie that has been 10 years in the making - and an iconic Norwich location features in the film.

Avengers: Infinity War was released in cinemas on April 26 and over the weekend broke several global records, including biggest worldwide opening of all time and biggest superhero opening of all time.

Directed by the Russo brothers, the film is an ambitious superhero crossover, that brings together the likes of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Spider Man as well as The Guardians of The Galaxy and more.

As well as an abundance of comic book favourites, the blockbuster also features a blink and you’ll miss it appearance from The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

The art gallery located at the University of East Anglia, was used as the Avengers HQ in the second Avengers movie, Age of Ultron in 2015.

Filming took place over summer 2014, when students at the university were asked to be extras in the film.

Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth all appeared on campus during filming.

The Sainsbury Centre tweeted: “The Sainbusry Centre appears in the new Avengers: Infinity War film. See if you can spot us! Reprising its role from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man Homecoming.”
