It’s safe to say that British thespian Tom Hiddleston, most well known for his turn as Marvel fan favorite villain Loki in the Thor franchise, is taking over the world. If the events of the last week are indication, that is, Hiddleston has quite the year ahead of him.
The actor was featured heavily everywhere this week, starting his takeover by being featured in the trailer for his current production on London’s West End, Coriolanus, as the production was set to be broadcast live in cinemas around the world.
Marvel joined in on the fun as well with Hiddleston as they released clips of the actor’s screen test for Thor, with the twist being that he was auditioning for the lead and not the villain audiences now know him to be, which can be seen here.
It gets better though. It was also released to the public’s delight a scene that had been talked about for ages that didn’t make the final cut of Thor: The Dark World as they had another surprise for us. During the press junket for the film, Hiddleston mentioned that he had tried on the Captain America suit to become Steve Rodgers but ultimately it wasn’t used. Marvel decided to release the original version of the clip, which you can see below:
That wasn’t all the Marvel fun that Hiddleston provided this week though as in preparation for the Thor: The Dark World, the company released a fan favorite staple: the gag reel. In the featurette, the classically trained Hiddleston could barely contain his laughter as he was trying to introduce it.
Hiddleston’s takeover doesn’t stop there though as the actor is set to be featured in Jaguar’s first ever Superbowl ad this Sunday during the second half of the sporting event (more details on that fun ad to be featured later on here).
In the meantime, you can catch Hiddleston gracing the stage as Coriolanus continues its fun till mid February.
