Idris Elba has been confirmed to reprise his role as Heimdall in Thor II. Idris is plenty busy playing Mandela in Long Walk To Freedom, but had this to say about his upcoming part in Thor II:
“I’m going to do Thor after I play Mandela [in Long Walk To Freedom],” “I’d just like to get to know him a bit more,” said the Londoner. “Who is Heimdall? He guards the gate. Is there anything else? I don’t know what’s in the script because I haven’t read it yet, but the audience has responded to Asgard and wants to know more about who lives there and what it’s about. I’m sure, if they do that, Heimdall will be featured more.”
According to Marvel boss Kevin Feige, Thor II starts shooting in London in August.
The burning question for most of Hollywood is which of the post Avengers character movies is gonna come in last in comparison to the others? Nobody wants to be that character.
