Thor: Love and Thunder is on the way and the world couldn’t be more excited about it. Chris Hemsworth is coming back as Thor and he literally looks like a Norse God. Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster is returning too but will be becoming the Mighty Thor in a surprising turn of events. Taika Waititi is all set to change the tone of the MCU with Thor 4. But it looks like one previous character from the Asgard world might have teased his return in the MCU. I’m talking about Idris Elba’s Heimdall who died in Avengers: Infinity War. But, we might see the return of Heimdall in MCU.
Idris Elba Hints at the Return of Heimdall in MCU
Idris Elba is currently set to shake the DCEU with his upcoming role as Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad. His character seems really captivating and seems like a strong addition to his accolades. During the press tour of the same, he had a conversation with ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis. Elba emphasized the word “seemingly” when it came to the death of his character in the MCU. He said,
“I think that I’m excited about the possibilities in the DC world. And I think the word of choice to make note of is the word ‘seemingly.'”
Elba was asked if he became an exclusive DC actor after his character seemingly perished in the MCU. Previously, he was spotted with numerous cast members of Thor: Love and Thunder. This was when the crew was filming in Australia. But as of now, Marvel is yet to confirm his involvement in the movie, which at this point seems unlikely. But it’s Marvel, so expect the unexpected.
Director Taika Waititi has a beautiful vision when it comes to MCU movies as we have seen previously. In Thor: Ragnarok, he even played Korg who was widely loved. Korg went on to become Thor’s friend. Waititi previously shared his thoughts about the movie with the world. Thor will also introduce Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher as Thor’s villain.
Thor: Love and Thunder is currently set for release on May 6, 2022. Besides that, MCU’s upcoming roster includes Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Marvels, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Deadpool 3, and Blade. We’ve also got several MCU shows for Disney Plus including Loki, What if…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion, Ironheart, I am Groot, Armor Wars, Echo, Wakanda, and Okoye.
