It can happen that certain supporting characters get more attention and fan affection than the main characters in a television show, film, video game, or other cultural endeavor. In order to profit on their fame, the latter are even permitted to have their own specific spin-off. In the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Heimdall’s situation is a little more complicated.
THOR : NEW LEADS FOR HEIMDALL
The word “divisive” comes to mind while describing Thor: Love and Thunder. Fans of the character and Marvel in general are split on the movie that tells the continuation of the Norse God’s travels. The movie, which is directly related to Thor: Ragnarok, has been criticized by some for having too much comedy that detracts from the emotional sequences. Whatever your opinion, the latter was a great hit at the box office, grossing no less than 723 million dollars worldwide, making it the second movie in the series to do so, Ragnarok being the first of course. In addition to having a contentious plot, the movie also divided audiences with its cast of characters.
For instance, the latter group would have been startled to find a new location in the second post-credits sequence. After passing away, Mighty-Thor is deposited in this Valhalla. This is greeted by Heimdall, a similarly departed but highly well-liked individual. He was defeated by Thanos, just in case you forgot. In the course of the movie, we also learn that he has a son named Axl, to whom Thor connects. We don’t yet know if Heimdall will make another appearance in the MCU. Idris Elba, the actor who lends the role his looks, has a small notion in mind. The British actor said he would adopt the character’s appearance, among other things, in an interview with SYFY WIRE.
The character of Heimdall appeals to the audience. I also enjoy expressing it via my actions. There could be a secret conflict involving the character. I’m unsure of his return date and am unable to comment on him in any manner. However, it would be fascinating to investigate the immortality that currently envelops him. Don’t forget that Marvel is also a world, a cosmos that is always changing.
MARVEL: SOME LEADS FOR HEIMDALL
Of course, there are a few possibilities that would enable us to see Heimdall once more in the MCU. Already, his son Axl and his sister Sif are the most likely candidates. It would undoubtedly be a Marvel series on Disney+ if we ever had to follow their exploits. Phase 5 still has a lot of gaps and mysteries that Marvel and Kevin Feige have not yet addressed. Given that the character of Axl has some of the strongest narratives in contemporary Marvel comics, a series about Heimdall’s ancestry would be highly intriguing and his presence would probably be through flashbacks. Just let’s hope they don’t do something as bad as the Spider-Man crossover.
Other hypotheses center on characters who could immediately run across him in Valhalla. One of them has to do with Loki, who also perished in the fight with Thanos. The real Loki would have been taken to Valhalla as he officially perished in combat, and the Loki series would really follow another equally problematic version of the figure. In season 2 of his solo travels, the presence of Heimdall or his version might be an excellent means to get there as he could require assistance to reconcile the worlds (or at least discover his own). There are many ways for Heimdall to come back, as Idris Elba mentioned, and we’ll continue to see this figure in the future.
