Idris Elba Becomes the 'Impossible Hulk' on Saturday Night Live

Thor: Ragnarok star Idris Elba hosted the latest episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live. As is the norm, the actor partook in several sketches. In one of SNL's signature digital shorts, Elba plays a satirical version of Bruce Banner, also known as the Incredible Hulk.

When he gets upset or enraged, Banner becomes the Impossible Hulk -- "an emboldened white lady" provoked by a range of inconveniences. After the show, SNL tweeted a clip from the short with a warning: "When Dr. Bruce Banner gets upset...this happens." In the clip, Elba transforms into cast member Cecily Strong, who freaks out over a retail salesperson not allowing returns and then calling security. Whipping out her phone, this Hulk calls others aggressive and dials 911.

Elba is, of course, tied closely to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has played Heimdall in four movies. However, the character's appearance in Avengers: Infinity War may be his last, as he died in that movie. A jump to the DC Extended Universe might be ahead for him, though. He is in negotiations to take over as Deadshot in James Gunn's Suicide Squad movie. In the meantime, he'll appear on the Netflix original comedy he co-created, Turn Up Charlie.
