Idris Elba is keen to return to the Thor franchise as Heimdall - despite the fact his character died in Avengers: Infinity War.

The 46-year-old played Heimdall, the all-seeing and all-knowing gatekeeper of the rainbow Bifrost bridge and Thor's good friend, from the first Thor movie in 2011 until he was killed at the hands of Thanos in the 2018 film.

However, during an interview with ABC Radio on Tuesday, the star explained that he's hopeful the Marvel Comics character could be brought back to life.

Natalie Portman likes to try out ‘wild experiences’ on film

Natalie Portman likes to try out ‘wild experiences’ on film Natalie Portman has been deliberately choosing film roles which are completely different from her own life. 

When asked if he'd return to the franchise, he insisted: "Of course! ... Listen, 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. The Heimdall character goes way back into, you know, the Thor mythology. And I'm sure there will be an interesting way to bring that alive. Of course, I would. Yes."

A return for a deceased Thor franchise character wouldn't be unusual, as Tom Hiddleston's Loki, who was also killed off in the same movie, is set to come back in a new series for Disney's streaming service Disney+, which is expected to drop in 2021. The show is rumoured to have elements of time travel, which could provide an opening for Elba's return.

There are also two feature films in which Heimdall could potentially appear - the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder and possibly even Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

Baz Luhrmann's untitled Elvis Presley biopic is slated for release on October 1, 2021, and the director is keen to begin production on the project later this year. This news comes after it was confirmed that Austin Butler will play the iconic musician, beating Harry Styles, Ansel Elgort, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Miles Teller, who were all screen-tested for the role. Luhrmann will direct the movie and has penned the script along with Craig Pearce, and the filmmaker previously said he was keen to hire a relatively unknown actor to play the late 'Hound Dog' hitmaker - who died in 1977 aged 42 at his Graceland estate.
