Idris Elba as Heimdall in a new photo from Thor
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Another photo from the upcoming comic film THOR has surfaced and this time we get to see Heimdall, the guardian of the rainbow bridge to Asgard, played by Idris Elba. The photo is okay, but makes Elba look a little goofy but I’m totally blaming that on the gold outfit and way the picture is shot. Since I’m not terribly familiar with the Thor universe or mythology, it’s hard for me to say how big of a part Heimdall plays in the film or the comics but there is a great actor taking on the role so maybe he’ll have a major part in the movie. Either way, this is probably just another promotional photo in an inevitably long line of photos we will see. I’m guessing we’ll get a money shot of Loki and Odin here soon enough.
THOR stars: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Kat Dennings and Rene Russo and opens in theaters on May 6th, 2011
