- THOR 2
|Idris Elba Won a Globe for Luther|
|Idris Elba as Heimdall|
For a while there was a lot of uncertainty concerning the cast of Thor and who will be returning. The majority of the cast was hand picked by Kenneth Branagh and when he left, it left a lot of questions about who was going stay
First, we got confirmation that Natalie Portman would be returning, then a few days ago Jaimie Alexander confirmed that she will be returning to the franchise.
Now we just got confirmation that Idris Elba, who played Heimdall, has confirmed that he will be returning to the franchise as well.
"Thor 2 for sure," Elba responded when asked about future appearances in the Marvel Universe, "... We're going at it again."
The actor did admit that he had not yet met with Alan Taylor, the recently-announced director of the Marvel Studios sequel. He was also less certain when asked if Heimdall might make a cameo appearance in Marvel's The Avengers, confirming that he hasn't been involved (at least so far) in that project.
Also confirmed to again star Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston, Thor 2 is planned to hit theaters on November 15, 2013.
