Elba to play Luke Cage?

Recently there has been a lot of speculation with who will play the rolls for the characters in the upcoming Marvel Netflix shows, but one rumour that keeps cropping up is Idris Elba to play Luke Cage and Elbis himself seems happy with this by saying "I'd like a stab at the character"

 Elba confirms now that he actually got as far as meeting with Marvel at some point.

As Heimdall in Thor he's already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, while talking with the Huffington Post, he revealed that he had also been eyed to play a different Marvel character. “There was talk about Luke Cage at one time — I thought Luke Cage was a pretty interesting character,” he said. “They were going to do it, but I don’t know what happened.”

At this point, the interviewer explained to him that Marvel was now making a Luke Cage series instead of a movie, to which Elba responded, “That’s right, yeah.”

Do you mind actors/actresses playing more than one character in the Marvel Universe and do you think he would make a good Luke Cage. Personally I think this would be a perfect casting.
