Now, it seems as though The Suicide Squad star, Idris Elba, might have teased his return to the MCU in Thor 4 (aka, Thor: Love And Thunder).
Elba played Heimdall in the Thor and Avengers movies and it sounds like he might be returning to the role… potentially.
Elba was doing press for The Suicide Squad and whilst chatting to ComicBook.com, he teased a possible return to the MCU.

Idris Elba might be returning to the MCU in Thor: Love And Thunder

Heimdall could have a small but important part to play in the movie.
Also, Elba is just perfect in the role.
