Idris Elba & Tom Hiddleston to Pop Up in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'
Just when you think the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron couldn't get any bigger, it turns out a couple familiar faces from the Marvel cinematic universe will pop up in next summer's sequel. Idris Elba, who plays Heimdall in the Thor franchise, was speaking to The Telegraph (via THR) and revealed that he will appear in the sequel to the 2012 superhero assembly, and Tom Hiddleston will be there too. The two appear in a scene along with the God of thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth. This isn't really surprising since all the Marvel films are connected, but fans are probably wondering just when or how they'll appear.
Well, our answer might lie in what we already know. At Marvel's big event, the studio played a scene where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) are chopping wood at a house in the country and having a tense conversation about the visions each of them had by way of the powers of Scarlet Witch (you can still check out the leaked scene right here). In the conversation, they speak of not knowing what "the Maximoff kid" showed Thor. And we're betting that since the next film in the Thor franchise is Thor: Ragnarok, where some major destruction will come to Asgard, that's what Thor sees in his vision, and that's probably where Loki and Heimdall come into play.
And if you're wondering what visions Stark and Rogers might have seen, the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser shown at Comic-Con this past summer likely showed us what Stark saw (we see a small glimpse of that in the teaser trailer with Captain America's broken shield). And as for Rogers, well, the teaser trailer may have a small hint of that too because there's a very short cut where we see Rogers in what looks like a dance hall back in the 40s. Maybe Scarlet Witch will help him have that dance with Peggy Carter he missed out on so many decades ago (and fans have already thought the same thing). Anyway, stay tuned for anymore updates on all of Marvel's future projects. Thoughts?
