Marvel fans hoping for an expanded role for Idris Elba's Heimdall will likely be excited for "Thor: The Dark World" if a recently-released extended clip from the film is any indication. Heimdall features heavily in the nearly three-minute fight scene from Alan Taylor's "Thor" sequel, beating down on Malekith's airborne forces as only the gatekeeper of Asgard can. After destroying a cloaked ship, Heimdall turns his attention to the rest of the attacking forces, activating the Bifrost to put up a massive mystical shield.

Opening Nov. 8, Thor: The Dark World also stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander along with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.
