More From Idris Elba On Thor And His Desire To Play Blade!?
In a recent interview, the actor goes into a little more detail about working on Kenneth Branagh's Thor and according to the site also expressed his interest in playing Blade or Nick Fury...
In an interview with The Detroit News promoting his latest movie, the actor (who plays Heimdall in Thor) was asked about being a part of the movies large ensemble cast and apparently expressed his desire to play a leading character in future! Below is an excerpt from the report:
"I would like to be in the lead position, with characters around me," says Elba, mentioning Nick Fury or Blade as potential roles for him to sink his teeth into. "If that's what I'm going to do, it's better to be the kick than the sidekick."
I've thought that Elba would be a good choice to play Blade for a while now, but Nick Fury? I cant imagine that he's be eyeing up Samuel L. Jackson's role so blatantly, and although the report doesnt make it clear, it's far more likely he was probably just using that character as an example. "It's a big, big, big film," he added. "I saw the trailer and I was like, 'Damn, I'm in that movie?'"
What do you guys think? Would Elba be a good choice for Blade, or are you sick of actors playing more than one comic book role? Share your thoughts in the usual place!
