He is the first big name to been seen in the city for the David Leitch-directed film and crowds gathered to catch a glimpse of the actor near George Square.

The streets of Glasgow are being used as London for the film with a red Routemaster bus with Paddington as its destination used in some of the scenes shot earlier this week.

Roads will remain closed in parts of the city centre until Sunday.

A crew of around 200 are said to be in the city for the shoot, which the city council said will bring a boost to the local economy.

Scenes for World War Z and Fast & Furious 6 were filmed in recent years in similar locations around Glasgow city centre.
