Idris Elba Would Like To Play Superman.

Idris Elba Would Like To Play Superman.

Why is that every time Idris Elba opens his mouth and talks, magic happens? His words are like beautiful white doves, soaring out of a magician's hat on a stage in Las Vegas. Never mind all that talk about Idris playing James Bond. He's got bigger and better plans.

From the behind-the-scenes video of Vanity Fair's "20th Annual Hollywood Issue" (which is seriously a gift that just keeps on giving and giving), here's Elba making sexy word talk with his mouth—I mean, telling us about which superhero he'd think he'd be best to play.

"I know this is going to sound a little controversial, but the other day I DJ'd for a Halloween party and I went in a Superman costume…" [PAUSE FOR MIND-BLOWING SEXY LOOK AT CAMERA] "I didn't want to take it off. Got a lot of compliments."

Hollywood. Get your shit together and make this happen now. In case you doubt how awesome this would be, please behold Elba DJ'ing dressed as Superman, which is apparently a thing he does.
