Fans went crazy when they witnessed the return of Idris Elba in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after dying in Avengers: Infinity War. Previously, many of us believed that this would be his final appearance in the MCU, but he made a successful comeback recently in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Even though the return of Idris Elba wasn’t revealed before the movie was released, he made a surprising cameo in one of the post-credits scenes. Keeping that in mind, it’s easy to speculate about the possibility of future appearances by the actor in this role.
Idris Elba Discusses His Potential Return to the MCU
In Love and Thunder, a character showed up at the gates of Valhalla. This hinted that the character still exists in the universe. The actor recently sat in an interview with Collider and talked about his return to the MCU.
“Pretty much his whole sort of like arsenal of gifts have been tapped into one way or another. He’s all-seeing, you know. But he’s quite a warrior. We’ve seen him as a warrior as well, and he has immortality around him and that would be something that we haven’t really explored so that I think maybe interesting. Hey, listen, you know, the Marvel world is ever-expanding. You just never know.”
We just saw him as a supporting role but bringing him back in a big role in the future will be amazing for fans. Fans would love to see a new version of Heimdall help Thor in the future, especially if the new Avengers are going to wreck Kang the Conqueror.
Natalie Portman’s Future Return Got More Likely After Idris Elba’s Tease
Not only this, In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jane Foster aka Natalie Portman revealed her MCU future after Thor: Love and Thunder teasing a potential Thor 5 return. She also said that her son wants her to keep doing Marvel movies which motivates her to work on more projects.
“I loved that they had it as like a Thor, you know? Thor is a concept, not necessarily a singular person and I’m excited to make a movie that my son likes. I am open to anything. It’s such a cool character and I feel like anything is possible.”
Natalie Portman’s son Aleph is her direct source of motivation, which pushes her to work for him. This can lead to making the actress return for more Marvel movies after her hit blockbuster Thor: Love and Thunder. The actress is also interested and open to making a comeback as Jane Foster.
