Idris Elba Did Talk With Marvel About Luke Cage


Long before he became Heimdall in the Thor movies, Idris Elba had talks with Marvel about bringing Luke Cage to life on the big screen.

In an interview posted on Crave's /Film website, Elba revealed his early talks about Power Man.

“There was talk about Luke Cage at one time — I thought Luke Cage was a pretty interesting character. They were going to do it, but I don’t know what happened.”

Now that Elba is a multi-dimensional badass from Asgard, Luke Cage likely won't come his way again. Although Marvel is turning out a Luke Cage series for Netflix … so anything is possible.
