Loki... dressed as Thor? What madness is this?! We all know Tom Hiddleston as Loki, but it turns out the actor also auditioned for the role of Thor. Well, his screen test will be a bonus feature on the Thor: The Dark World's blu-ray/DVD. Two gifs of the video have hit the web. Enjoy.

Are you happy Chris Hemsworth landed the role and Hiddleston became Loki? Or, do you think Hiddleston would have been an awesome Thor?

Thor: The Dark World comes out on blu-ray/DVD Feb 25.

Thor: Anorexia!

So we can agree Marvel lets Tom do whatever he wants now?

@lightburst: This was before the film. I don't know if that's what you meant.

@thomaselliot: So was Chris Hemsworth before the role?

Yea, you don't bulk up for a role you haven't even got yet

I think he makes a much better Loki, but it's always cool to see actors try out for other roles.

#15 Posted by Deranged Midget (17840 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he definitely has the chops to pull off Thor, I just don't think he has the right voice for it as dumb as that sounds.

lol that wig

#21 Edited by Guardiandevil83 (5862 posts) - - Show Bio

I would have had to see him bulked a bit. He definitely can act his a$$ off.

#22 Edited by Z3RO180 (6669 posts) - - Show Bio

He would have made a good thor but he is a freaking awesome Loki.

#23 Posted by SoA (5111 posts) - - Show Bio

pretty cool

#24 Posted by Roadblock (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Tom with long blond hair....this is so weird on so many levels.

#25 Edited by G_leno (1099 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think he looks rugged enough for Thor. You can beef up, but you cant change your face that much. Glad he got Loki.

#26 Edited by sho3s22 (121 posts) - - Show Bio

Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are both great actors and I'm just glad either of them took either role. He most definitely would have had to bulk up for the role though.

#27 Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3566 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he would've made a good Thor but he is an even better Loki.

Other than Michael Douglas being cast as an old Hank Pym, I haven't been disappointed at all by any of Marvels casting calls. That being said, I don't think anyone could pull off a better Loki than Tom Hiddleston.

Hmm. He could've beefed up, he wouldn't have used the awful wig, and I'm sure he could act it well... but I think his face would ruin any convincingness from his acting. No ruggedness there to convince me that he's Thor.

Looks like mini thor

Actually very similar to what I was going to say. Doesn't sound dumb, at least to me. I think Hiddleston plays the perfect Loki, he makes the character so much more likable and awesome.

He would have made a better Joker...

I know what you mean. He could bulk up, and acting-wise, he'd be solid (probably better than Hemmsworth, if we're being honest) but... he just doesn't sound like Thor at all. It wouldn't seem right. And the whole face seems wrong too, I don't know... it seems petty, but it actually does make a difference

#38 Posted by Experio (16935 posts) - - Show Bio

Hemsworth certainly deserved the role.

#39 Posted by fodigg (6148 posts) - - Show Bio

He's become such an iconic Loki I will have a hard time seeing him as anything but.

Seeing him dressed as Thor just feels so...strange...good strange, though.

#43 Posted by Dernman (15440 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh wow that would have been horrible.

#44 Posted by Alak (928 posts) - - Show Bio

Really glad he got picked for Loki instead.

Definitely. It's the same problem I had with the (re)casting of Zach Levi as Fandrall in Thor 2. I just cannot take the dude seriously :/
