The Thor movie...

...is great news for us Marvel aficionados. 

It is also great news for those of us who like it when racists have apoplectic fits.

The Council of Conservative Citizens is upset that London-born Idris Elba, star of The Wire and BBC detective series Luther as well as a number of Hollywood films, is to play deity Heimdall in the Marvel Studios feature. 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.
"It [is] well known that Marvel is a company that advocates for leftwing ideologies and causes," the 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.

That said, I'm actually sorry to see Branagh directing the movie as I'd rather see him acting. He was wonderful in both the second Harry Potter movie and in the British Wallander series.
