25 white comic book characters race swapped in movies and TV

HeimdallHeimdall (Idris Elba, Thor)

Heimdall is the Asgardian early warning system. He’s the guard in essence, yet some folks found it absurd that the role on the big screen would be played by a black actor. Bizarrely, Elba found his casting a center of controversy for a franchise that once had Thor looking like this:

Elba discussed the insanity with Entertainment Weekly.

‘Thor has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers. That’s OK, but the color of my skin is wrong?’ Elba said. ‘I just had to comment on [the uproar] because I found it so ridiculous.’idris elba as heimdall

Elba had less grief when playing Roque in The Losers, mainly because not a lot of folks bothered to see it.

No. 7 is a wonder
