    White supremacists call for boycott of Thor Movie over Idris Elba casting as Norse god

    American white supremacist group ‘The Council of Conservative Citizens’ has called for a boycott of forthcoming superhero movie Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh, due to the casting of black actor Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire) in the role of Norse god, Heimdall.


    ‘The group, which opposes inter-racial marriage and gay rights, has set up a website, boycott-thor.com to set out its opposition to what it sees as an example of leftwing social engineering,’ reports Guardian.
    “It [is] well known that Marvel is a company that advocates for leftwing ideologies and causes,” the [boycott] site reads. “Marvel frontman Stan ‘Lee’ Lieber boasts of being a major financier of leftwing political candidates. Marvel has viciously attacked the Tea Party movement, conservatives and European heritage. Now they have taken it one further, casting a black man as a Norse deity in their new movie Thor. Marvel has now inserted social engineering into European mythology.”

    The site chooses to ignore its target’s thespian talents, referring to “hip-hop DJ Elba” in apparent reference to the actor’s career in East End nightclubs more than a decade ago. Elba himself addressed the casting issue earlier this year, pointing out that “Thor has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers”. He continued: “That’s OK, but the colour of my skin is wrong?”

    Also starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor alongside love interest Natalie Portman, plus Anthony Hopkins, Kat

    I had no intention of seeing this POS in the theatres, but now I will just out of spite...and because I'd put up with worse for a chance to stare at Idris Elba for 2 hours.

    Oh for crying out loud. This movie is based on the comic books which were never remotely accurate in the first place.
