Actor Idris Elba was photographed as he stepped out for an errand run in Sydney. The 48-year-old cut a casual figure but looked ripped and attractive nonetheless.
He wore a red Nike singlet that brought out his muscular and tattooed biceps with a matching beanie and a pair of blue shorts. Unbothered by the paps, Elba focused solely on the ice-cream he was eating.
The actor has been in Syndey, where he’s filming his next movie Three Thousand Years of Longing, since a few weeks. Shooting for the George Miller directorial was to start in March but got delayed due to the pandemic.
Although the director has kept most details of the film under wraps, he did reveal that it will be “strongly visual” with a few actions scenes and “a lot of conversation.” The film also stars Tilda Swinton and David Collins.
Idris Elba Suicide Squad look revealed
Idris Elba is all set to play the “brutal” Robert DuBois aka Bloodsport in the 2021 The Suicide Squad. The movie marks director James Gunn‘s first venture in the universe of DC.
Bloodsport is a killer who was hired to kill Superman (Henry Cavil) but fails and is subsequently imprisoned. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) then takes him into Task Force X, a team of supervillains tasked with dangerous black ops missions.
At Brazil’s virtual CCXP convention held on Sunday, the makers revealed the first look of Bloodsport and it’s everything that fans imagined and more.
“Each one of these heroes, they’re all from different genres of movies,” Gunn said during The Suicide Squad‘s presentation. “Idris’ character, Bloodsport, he’s actually a pretty cool character. He looks cool, his costume is cool.”
Idris Elba spoke about his The Suicide Squad look along the same lines. “I think James described it: he has a very cool costume. His costume is seriously innovative and technically advanced, and he’s the only guy that can use it. And in this film, he gets to show it off — and he’s brutal.”
While everyone knows Elba is playing Bloodsport, it’s time to address another rumour that has been doing the rounds!
Is Idris Elba returning as Heimdall in Thor 4?
Thor director Taika Waititi recently posted with Idris Elba on his Instagram, sending fans into a frenzy. The two visited the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team, but given that Waititi is soon going to start filming Thor 4, people felt that the post is hinting at a super exciting news.
The rumour mill said the IG post was a sign that Elba’s Heimdall, who was killed off in Infinity War, would be returning to MCU with Thor 4.
Nothing has been confirmed as yet. Recently, Taika Waititi and Idris Elba even worked together in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, so the photos could be just two friends hanging out. Or it could be what everyone’s thinking and hoping for.
