Its been just under a week since Marvel bombarded the world with their Phase 3 movie plans, and slowly but surely things are starting to settle down- until yesterday where a small and random interview in the Telegrapgh newspaper gave us two returning stars and characters to add to the Age of Ultron movie- and this is good news!
Actor Idris Elba, has dropped out in this interview that he will be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron alongside Loki and the scene has already been shot- as filming ended in August.
Now this means that there is likely to be a high Asgardian presence within the movie- so does this mean that Ultron poses a bigger threat than many thought before? And will these events lead into Thor: Ragnarok in Marvels Phase3 plans- this seems highly likely given the appearances of both Heimdall and Loki now.
Add to this the rumour that we may see Captain Marvel in here too- and tis movie is not only looking great but its starting to sound massive in scope and character depth too.
In the May 2015 release, 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. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard
