“I’m in Avengers,” Elba revealed. “And I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth [Thor] and Tom Hiddleston [Loki], and they’re like, [whispers] ‘Aren’t you [supposed to be] in Ibiza?’ ”
Elba had taken a summer residency as a DJ at an Ibiza club but was able to squeeze in time for the film before it wrapped in August.
Reps for Hiddleston and Elba did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The actors do not appear in the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer.
Elba also told The Telegraph that he had to do Thor 2 reshoots in England the day after he came back from shooting Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in South Africa, and the tight schedule was tough on him. “[On the Thor 2 set] I was like, ‘This is torture, man. I don’t want to do this.’ My agent said: ‘You have to; it’s part of the deal.’ “
Disney releases Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015.
