Idris Elba Hints He May Still Return as Heimdall in the MCU

In a new interview with ComicBook, actor Idris Elba, currently promoting The Suicide Squad, suggested that his character Heimdall in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) may not have come to an end.

I think that I’m excited about the possibilities in the DC world,” says Elba. “And I think the word of choice to make note of is the word ‘seemingly.’

It’s worth noting that in another 2019 interview, Elba had already hinted that Heimdall might be alive due to his powers.

Heimdall is essentially part of the god family. So you know, he essentially could be alive. I’m just saying! I’m just putting it out there!“.

If you consider the UCM’s history of resurrecting characters who were given up for dead – as in WandaVision or Loki – it’s quite possible that the actor will be spotted at some other point in the future. In Thor: Love and Thunder, maybe?
