From Spiderman to the xenomorph creature from the Alien movie franchise, the cosplayers certainly provided a colourful spectacle in the Newham area of the city.

MCM London Comic Con runs from May 24-26.

Actor Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky Barnes in Marvel's Captain America and Avengers films, will make an appearance across all three days.
