Idris Elba Reveals Heimdall and Loki Will Appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Heimdall

Idris Elba revealed that he will appear as Heimdall alongside Tom Hiddleston as Loki in next year’s sequel.

“I’m in Avengers,” Elba revealed to The Telegraph. “And I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, and they’re like, [whispers] – ‘Aren’t you [meant to be] in Ibiza?'”

In the May 2015 release, when Tony Stark tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Elba took on a DJ in residence role at Ibiza Rocks off the coast of Spain during the summer, putting the time of his stint on the set of “Age of Ultron” near the end of filming as production wrapped up on the sequel back in early August.

Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard.
