IdrisElba teases MCU Return

Heimdall died in heroic fashion Infinity WarHe defeated Thanos (Josh Brolin), one last time, by sending Hulk to Earth (Mark Ruffalo). This action granted him access to Valhalla, where he’s been ever since.

Heimdall, an all-seeing being, was the one who welcomed Jane (Natalie Portman), into Valhalla after her heroic death in battle. The death of the new Thor was much faster than we expected. However, the credits scene showed that Marvel could always bring back characters of Valhalla.

What Heimdall’s life after death means

It doesn’t matter if Marvel revives Heimdall. Love and ThunderWe were able to get a glimpse of Valhalla. It also made us realize that Marvel may resurrect other characters. It’s not just Jane and Heimdall “living”Valhalla. The MCU’s primary Loki (Tom Hiddleston) also died in battle, so he should also reside in Valhalla.

We have already discussed how the MCU’s life-after-death locations create a plot hole. That’s because there’s no consistent experience. All beings are not eligible to enter Valhalla. And the rules aren’t similar for everyone.

Marvel’s Valhalla can also be used to bring back any other fallen character that died in battle, if it is used. This brings us to Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), as well as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). They’re not Asgardians, but neither was Jane. They also lost their lives in combat fighting forces that threatened Asgardians, just like Jane.

If Marvel is making something up for Heimdall, then there must be a plausible explanation for the MCU’s life after death. Rules for resurrections. Heimdall could return to life if he followed the rules. And, again, we’re looking mainly at Iron Man, the Marvel character fans want to see most in an MCU movie in the future.
