Elba is probably better known as the award-winning actor who starred in The Wire, American Gangster and a brief stint on The Office.

Boycott-thor.com expands on the CCC's position:

Marvel has a history of advocating for the left-wing. In early 2010 they even used their Captain America comic to attack the TEA Party movement. Marvel front man Stan "Lee" Lieber personally funds left-wing political candidates. Now Marvel has inserted left-wing social engineering into European mythology, casting a black man to play a Norse deity.

In 1998, American Conservative Union head David Keene barred the Council of Conservative Citizens from the annual CPAC conference: "we kicked [them] out of CPAC because they are racists."
