Idris Elba let it slip that he and Tom Hiddleston will be making an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“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 installment 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 looks like we will get a scene with them during Avengers: Age of Ultron, it will probably be a small scene but I am sure I speak for everyone when I say we would love to see some more Loki.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will be hitting theaters next May.
Idris Elba is in negotiations to do the voice of Shere Khan the villainous tiger in The Jungle Book. The movie will be directed by John Favreau of the Iron Man franchise. The movie is said to be a combination of live action and VFX, which make sense because I can’t see any other way of doing the movie. If they want to keep it true to the story then this would be the only way to do it.
This is one of many live action movies/tv shows that Disney is working on. Disney has Maleficent coming out this year, they are working on a Cruella, Peter Pan, and Beauty and the Beast movies. They are also in working on an Esmerelda tv show that might tie in with the Once Upon a Time series.
Are you excited for live action Disney movies or do you think they should stay animated?
