While most of the group are looking at the camera, Samuel appears to be a little distracted by his mobile phone.

It's not the first time that Robert has shared a photo from the upcoming Avengers movie.

The star, who only joined Twitter on 11 April, delighted fans when he posted the first picture from the set of the film on 22 April.

Robert recently spoke to Variety about the "very ambitious" sequel. "If you read it, it's dense, it's smart. Joss (Whedon) is a really smart guy," he said.

"My two-year-old is crazy about Hawkeye and I think Jeremy (Renner) has a lot to do with the plot. There's always so many plates to spin to get these things half-right, and I'm really excited about this one."
