Idris Elba, who plays Heimdall in the Marvel Universe, was being interviewed by the U.K. paper The Telegraph when he let slip that he and fellow actor Tom Hiddleston (Loki) had been in a scene with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron film.
“Ironically, yesterday I had to…” Elba chuckles. He’s not meant to talk about this, but he clearly enjoys doing things he’s not meant to do. “I’m in Avengers,” he reveals. He means that his Thor character, deity-cum-sentry Heimdall, appears in Age of Ultron, the second instalment of the superhero ensemble franchise. “And I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth [who plays Thor] and Tom Hiddleston [Loki], and they’re like, [whispers] – ‘Aren’t you [meant to be] in Ibiza?’ ” That bassy chuckle again, followed by a frown. Elba came straight to Ibiza party-time from a mythical Norse god/Marvel universe that has made billions at the global box office. His head is all over the place. “That’s why I was p—– about my set yesterday. I really just wasn’t there. I was annoyed.”
It was originally believed that Loki would not be part of the Avengers sequel, especially since he is believed dead and masquerading as Odin (Anthony Hopkins). We saw in the trailer what appeared to be a flashback into both Captain America’s and Black Widow’s pasts… maybe this is a flashback into Thor’s life.
