This really reminds me of what a gravitational tunnel has to look like.

Any latest news on the start of the new S-bahn line? Supposed to start in 2014, but I wonder if any 'pre' work is happening.

Yes, the plan for the new S-bahn through the city center. It is described in the posts from 2007, 2010 and 2011:

The last time I was in the Munich Hauptbahnhof it was under major demolition. That was July last summer.

The schedule

A first building permit for the second Rapid Transit route is available to the planning decision for the Part 2 (the center of Munich between main train station and Isar). Preparatory construction work on the Marienhof behind the Munich city hall took place 2011/2012.
The approval process for the other two zoning sections are not yet complete. (Prior approval process see: planning procedures )

On the basis of the construction and financing agreement , the German railway requested in September 2011 at the Federal Railway Office inclusion of the project in the category A of GVFG federal program as a condition for financial support from the federal government. Once the building permits and financing commitment from the federal can begin the main construction works.

In the meantime the old tunnel is getting renovated another time. As well as the upper subterranean level of Munich main station.

Stachus station is simply amazing! I've read that the complex between Kalplatz and the main station is the biggest underground shopping centre in Europe!

They claim that the whole complex (including the stations) is the largest underground complex in Europe, not only shopping centre.

The pictures don't really show the horrible state of the floor. It's full of cracks and discoloration and always looks dirty. Also there are several corners that still look unfinished - years after the renovation.
Other than that the renovation impoved the Stachus a lot aesthetically. But I think it still doesn't feel like a place where you'd like to spend a lot of time for shopping.

I think they did a better job with the renovation of the (much smaller) Münchner Freiheit underground complex.

"Destroyed" is a weird verb to describe scheduled service stops in order to renovate the tunnel.

Beacause of rebuilding the Station Donnersberger Brücke there is no regular service on several weekends this year. Out and inbound trains mainly start and stop respectively at Pasing, Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof. S8 to the airport is rerouted via Südring. There is a 20 minute service between Hackerbrücke and Pasing. Shuttle trains run every 10 minutes between Hackerbrücke and Ostbahnhof.

Are there any updates, or pictures of the current HBF - Marienplatz stations? What is the scheduled completion date? I will be travelling to Munich in late February and I want to be aware to avoid construction delays.

I did find this small amount of information on the new line:

The construction of a second S-Bahn route (a second main tunnel route through the centre of Munich) with a new S-Bahn station is being planned for the station hall. Because of challenges with the planning and financing of the route, it will probably not be finished until 2020.

A new front for the railway station and service hall are to be built to a design by Auer+Weber+Assoziierte. Because of difficulties in financing, it is questionable when the project will be started.[

They did stop services on the S-Bahn tunnel on a few weekends for renovations and will cut services during night on some weekends over the coming months (the construction update sheet it in German but you should be able to understand the most important information). Apparently there are no bus replacement services but you can still use the U-Bahn or night busses.

U-Bahn services afaik aren't affected, the renovations cause some inconvenients in the stations (especially in Hauptbahnhof (some closed exits or shops and alike)) but nothing to worry about.
