Jaimie Alexander recently confirmed she was returning to play Sif again in the upcoming Thor sequel. Now Golden Globe-winner Idris Elba confirms to MTV News he’ll be reprising the role of Heimdall as well.
“Thor 2 for sure,” Elba responded when asked about future appearances in the Marvel Universe, “… We’re going at it again.”
Heimdall was one of my favorite parts of Thor. Idris Elba was such a bad ass and he completely changed everyone’s perception about the character being played by a black man.
He also confirmed he had not yet met with director Alan Taylor and isn’t involved in “The Avengers”.
