British actor Idris Elba is busy these days, in no small part due to comic book movies like The Losers and the upcoming Thor. Elba's association with comic book adaptation is just beginning, however. In a conversation with Total Film, Elba explained that Thor is the start of a long association with Marvel Studios.
I have a picture deal with them (Marvel). I can't tell you much about that, but I can tell you I'll be back.
One of the Marvel movies that will bring Elba back is Ghost Rider 2. THR reports that Elba has joined the production as "an alcoholic warrior monk" that must find the Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage). After Ghost Rider 2, Elba will move on to the title role in Cross, based on the novel by James Patterson. After that, Elba told Total Film, the actor may be ready to join more Marvel movies. And what about Luke Cage? >> Posted 10.07.10 by Ryan
