The SCVA tweeted the news on Friday morning: “So #Spider-Man fans, Have you manage to spot our cameo as #Marvel Avengers HQ?”

Penelope Lucas, Head of Marketing and Communications at the SCVA, said: “I was contacted a few days ago by Sony Pictures in Los Angeles, who have worked with Marvel on this film, for permissions to be granted to re-use some of the original shots from Age of Ultron.

“We are very proud to be approached again and of course It is fantastic publicity not only for the Sainsbury Centre but also the University of East Anglia.”

The SCVA, located on the UEA campus, welcomed stars such as Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth back in 2014 for Avengers: Age of Ultron and held auditions for extras on campus.
