One minute you're a 'Loser' and the next minute you're a god. That's how quickly things can change in Hollywood, especially if you're Idris Elba.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios has tapped Elba to play the role of Norse god Heimdall in their upcoming big budget comic adaptation 'Thor.' It marks the second major comic book role for the actor, who also plays betrayed government operative Roque in next year's 'The Losers', based on the DC Comics title of the same name.
