Thor’s Idris Elba calls the debate over his being cast as a Nordic god, “Ridiculous”

is feeling the heat from fanboys over his decision to cast as Heimdall in the upcoming film , with their primary argument being it is wrong for a black actor to portray a Nordic god.

Elba, talking to the Hollywood Reporter, said that, “It’s so ridiculous. We have a man who has a flying hammer and wears horns on his head. And yet me being an actor of African descent playing a Norse god is unbelievable? I mean, Cleopatra was played by Elizabeth Taylor, and Gandhi was played by Ben Kingsley.”
