Other than Rwanda I’ve never really been impressed. He’s solid but too good for a certain role? Nah

Umm he used to be head of Accounting for Saticoy Steel, dummy

He’s 5’7, >55 and has never really done a physical role, but I could be wrong

Elba will kill it.

Though he does crack me up when he was saying that he’s too good for Heimdall after having done Mandella and then books a cheezy C list villain for Hobbs and Shaw, and now is another comic character


He is too good an actor for such a small role.

I'm not sure why people think this when Elba himself voluntarily took the role. I'm sure he was well compensated for it, and that this played a large part in his evaluation of the role (as it should.) Plenty of other big name actors take supporting roles in MCU movies.

And really, with the state of the DCU, playing a supporting role in a Marvel movie is probably better for one's career than a co-starring role in a DCU movie.

Agreed. He's a good actor, but when you look at his filmography I see a lot of mediocre movies, small roles, and the like. Yes, he played Mandela, but they could have cast a ham sandwich to play Mandela and it would have been critically acclaimed, given the subject matter.

Rhodes is a smaller role than Deadshot.

I was talking about how Heimdel was too small of a role for an actor like Idris.

Talk to us when he wins an Oscar.

Oh wait you cant, because if actual Oscar winners like Anyhony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro, Ben Kingsley, Brie Larson, Cate Blanchett, Forest Whitaker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, Lupita Nyong’o, Mahershala Ali, Marisa Tomei, Michael Douglas, Natalie Portman, Robert Redford, Sam Rockwell, Tilda Swinton, Tommy Lee Jones, and William Hurt can take comic book character roles ranging from starring to supporting roles to cameos, then Elba thinking he’s too good to take a paying gig others in his profession would kill for is just him being a pretentious prick.

You fucking idiot. :)

Hey Uncle Pisspants, an actor's attitude toward certain roles or just in general has zero bearing on their acting ability; otherwise Sean Penn, Ian McShane, and hundreds of other great actors with much worse dickhead attitudes than Elba wouldn't be held in the esteem that they are.

Just because an actor doesn't take the funny pages as seriously as you do doesn't take away from his ability, you goddamn old-ass crybaby

Nice deflection post from the guy who initiated this entire conversation, and is apparently so far up Idris Elba’s ass when he spits it comes out of Elba’s mouth.
You got schooled, deal w. it.
Thanks for giving me a bit of fun at your expense.   

You fucking idiot. :)
