First up in today’s exciting, suoer-hero heavy picture round-up is Rebecca Hall (above) as Maya Hansen, a gifted Biologist who specializes in nano-technology and is an old friend of Tony Stark in Iron Man 3 and in the Extremis story – that Iron Man 3 has elements of – is a pretty important player

Empire has scooped two new pics of Simon Pegg as Gary King and another of Left to right estate agent Oliver (Martin Freeman), rocker-turned-architectural-consultant Steven (Paddy Considine), lawyer and King’s best mate Andy (Nick Frost) and car dealer Peter (Eddie Marsan) in the highly anticipated The World’s End, the final part in Director Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife.

Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
