Idris Elba Joins the Cast of Thor

Which Asgardian will he portray in Marvel's comic adaptation?

Heat Vision has just revealed that Idris Elba will play Heimdall, the guardian of Asgard.

Heimdall is the all-seeing and all-knowing brother of Sif (portrayed on film by Jaimie Alexander). He stands on the rainbow bridge, Bifrost, watching for any attacks on Asgard.







MPP - Now, I'm ok with updating roles to fit certain aspects of a movie, but I don't see much resemblance between Idris and Jaimie. If this information is true, and they will portray brother and sister, I'm hoping for a bit of an explanation or re-tooling from Kenny B.

UPDATE: Marvel confirmed the casting of Idris Elba as Heimdall on November 20th.
