Idris Elba Hints at His Marvel Future After Thor 4

All things considered, Heimdall has been a pretty popular and memorable member of the MCU’s supporting cast. Portrayed by English actor Idris Elba, Heindall appeared in two Avengers films as well as all four Thor movies. And as the all-seeing gatekeeper of Asgard, he had an important part to play in some of those stories.

Of course, the character met his untimely demise at the hands of the Mad Titan Thanos in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War and ended up in the Asgardian afterlife Valhalla, as shown in Thor: Love and Thunder’s post-credits scene.

But Heimdall is a definite fan-favorite, a fact which is helped by Elba’s fame and popularity, so could he ever return to the MCU again?

Idris Elba Hints at “Something Cooking”

When asked by Syfy during the promotional tour for his latest film Beast about whether Heimdall had any chance of returning, Idris Elba revealed the following: “Heimdall is a beloved character, I love playing him. There may be something cooking.”

When pressed further on what that “something” could be, Elba responded, “I don’t know, I would tell you if I did. Well, probably not…”

In Beast, Elba’s character must contend with a bloodthirsty lion and when the outlet inquired how Heimdall would fare in that sort of situation, the actor remarked that the Asgardian would already be aware of the situation through his abilities: “He would be just like, oh, I’m not going to go there right now. I’ll wait,”

For now, though, audiences will need to get their Heimdall fix in any of his previous MCU appearances, including his cameo in Thor: Love and Thunder which is still playing in theaters everywhere. And of course, Heimdall has a young son Axl, who possesses the same powers as his father and could conceivably crop up again as well.
