During an interview with the Telegraph, actor Idris Elba let it slip that's he's going to be in the upcoming film, Avengers: Age of Ultron. On top of that, he also let everyone know that Tom Hiddleston will also be returning. While discussing his work on the project Bastille Day, a thriller set in Paris, Elba let the beans spill about next summer's potential blockbuster from Marvel.

“Ironically, yesterday I had to… I’m in Avengers, and I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth [Thor] and Tom Hiddleston [Loki], and they’re like, [whispers] – ‘Aren’t you [meant to be] in Ibiza?’ ”

Elba, who played Heimdall in Thor and Thor: Dark World, also discussed the filming process of the Marvel movies, described one moment, as an actor, where he was filming back-to-back films and he said "this is torture." Between the travel, the demand, the contracts, the stress, and jumping between playing Mandela and the highly accessorized Heimdall put Elba under a lot of stress.

Regardless, we will be seeing both Loki and Heimdall again, but in what regards? Will this be an "after the credits" scene or something that relates the main story? Either way, it will most likely be a smaller role. Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
