Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man to Have Returning Characters From Marvel Universe

November 4, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man will feature returning characters from other Marvel films.

This week, a report from the Telegraph says Idris Elba will come back as Heimdall, of the Thor movie, in Avengers 2.

He’ll appear in a scene that includes Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, another recurring character.

“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?’ ” Elba told the paper.

The article adds: “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 was also reported that Marvel’s Ant-Man will also feature Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter.

Slashfilm said Carter, who appears as an old woman Captain America: The Winter Soldier, will be younger.

“NLC is searching for an experienced stand in for Haley Atwell. She is 31, 5’7?, 112 lbs. This will work in November on a Sunday. Please submit to nlcstandin@gmail.com with your headshot, age, height, weight and sizes. Must have experience. Thanks,” reads a casting call, via Slashfilm.

Meanwhile, another report said Avengers: Age of Ultron could make $2 billion at the box office.

“Enthusiasm for a new trailer suggests we’ll see at least that much growth. On its news blog, Marvel said the Age of Ultron screener attracted 34.3 million global views in its first 24 hours of release — 20 million more than Iron Man 3, the prior record holder, drew over a similar period,” Fool.com said.
