First appearing in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor movie back in 2011, the Asgardian bridgekeeper remained a mysterious and underused presence throughout his time in the franchise – and Idris himself shared some disappointment at this back in 2017.
“Of course,” he responded. “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.”
Would you be excited to see Heimdall (and Idris) back in the MCU if he returned in Thor: Love and Thunder?
