Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, and Idris Elba have been confirmed as appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The confirmation comes from the new Avengers: Age of Ultron poster released on today. While not top-billed, the three actors’ names were including in the cast list as the bottom of the poster.

Anthony Mackie, who plays the Falcon, has been rumored to appear at the end of the film as part of a new team of Avengers led by Captain America, leading to what becomes part of Captain America: Civil War. 

Hayley Atwell addition to Avengers: Age of Ultron was pretty much unexpected. Whether she is appearing in a flashback or popular fan theories say  that she time travels in Age of Ultron, but that remains to be seen.

Idris Elba doesn't come as a surprise considering he previously let slip that he would be playing Heimdall in Avengers: Age of Ultron much to Joss Whedon’s displeasure.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1.
