Idris Elba either has confidence that he can say what he wants at this point in his career, and we think he does.
Or, he’s just so excited about appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron that he let it slip. And not only did he let it out during an interview with Britain’s The Telegraph, he admitted that he and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will share a scene in the flick with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor!
"I'm in Avengers," Elba said.
"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?'"
That latter Ibiza comment is in reference to Elba's spending time this summer DJing in the island paradise.
So not only do we get the debuts of Aaron Taylor Johnson’s Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, but the return of all our favorite Avengers and two Thor movie-based characters? If anyone can handle an ensemble of this size, it’s writer-director Joss Whedon.
Judging by what we saw in that Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer, he still can do nothing wrong.
Look for Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters May 1, 2015 and watch The Avengers online to get all sorts of caught up.
