Contrary to numerous statements made by Tom Hiddleston, it's now confirmed that Loki will appear in The Avengers 2 in addition to Idris Elba as Heimdall.
Elba confirmed the appearances in an interview with the Telegraph where he stated he recently filmed a scene with Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor.
“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 instalment 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.”
Kevin Feige also recently confirmed Tom Hiddleston for Thor 3, and it is also being said Hiddleston will be featured in The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart 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.
