New Photo of Idris Elba as Heimdall from Thor


Marvel has released a new photo of Idris Elba in costume as Heimdall, from the upcoming Thor movie.

The image is pretty cool, but i have to say I find the casting choice a little odd. I mean, I’m not being racist, but isn’t it highly unlikely that a Norse God would be black? Oh well… suspension of disbelief etc.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the epic adventure “Thor” spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

“Thor” is from a screenplay by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne and a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige will produce the film. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Marvel Studio’s Co-President, Louis D’Esposito, will executive produce.
