Actor Idris Elba says Thor 2 will focus more on Asgard and will hopefully answer what Heimdall does besides guard The Rainbow Bridge. Kat Dennings unsure of return for sequel.

Thor2


Previously, we heard from Idris Elba about Thor 2 and we're told that the film will definitely focus more on Asgard and his fellow Asgardians. Here, speaking to Collider, Elba states what he hopes will be explored within his character, Heimdall.

Will he be back for Thor 2?
Elba:Yes, I am. I'm definitely going to do my man in a suit film.

What are you most excited about getting to do in the sequel?
Elba: I'd just like to get to know him a bit more. Who is Heimdall? He guards the gate. Okay. Is there anything else? I don't know what is in the script because I haven't read it yet. But, the audience has responded to Asgard and wants to know more about who lives there and what it's about. I'm sure, if they do that, Heimdall will be featured more.

Does anyone know of any comic runs that focus on Heimdall or reveal what he does besides guard The Rainbow Bridge?

UPDATE

Speaking to Crave just last week, actress Kat Dennings has stated she's unsure whether she'll return for the Thor sequel and that it's apparently up to Marvel. Seeing that Hemsworth and Elba have already seen the treatment is it possible that her character, Darcy, won't be returning? Speculation prior to Thor had Dennings portraying Hela but that proved to be ultimately false as her character was simply Jane Foster's intern. It also seems I'm alone in thinking her character was funny?








Thor 2 is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Thor, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It is intended to be the sequel to 2011's Thor and the eighth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Alan Taylor is set to direct a screenplay by Don Payne and Robert Rodat with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba reprising their roles from the first film. Thor 2 is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2013.

In April 2012, Hemsworth confirmed that filming is scheduled to begin in August 2012, in London, England.Hemsworth also revealed that Thor 2 will have a more Viking-influenced feel, elaborating "I think the science fiction element to Thor… the danger is it falls a little bit into the world of it's 'tough to throw a light to.' I think of big waterfalls and mountains and a Viking influence, where the Norse mythology kind of grew from. Having that in Asgard is going to make it all the more special and that's what Alan [Taylor] wants to bring to it."
