Untouched Thor 2 Scene Features Tom Hiddleton Dressed as Captain America

If you’re confused, you might need a reminder (or explanation) that in this scene in Thor: The Dark World, Loki transforms himself into a likeness of Steve Rogers in the Captain America suit to needle Thor. Tom Hiddleston explains that this scene was filmed and then shown to Chris Evans, so that he could capture Loki as Cap in his own performance, “It’s him doing an impression of me doing an impression of him, and it’s brilliant.” On the contrary, Mr. Hiddleston, it’s Chris Evans doing an impression of your impression of Loki’s impression of Captain America. We need to go deeper.

But that still doesn’t explain why this scene required Tom Hiddleston to wear his own Captain America suit.

Unused Concept Art Shows Thor 2 Almost Introduced Valkyrie

Concept Artist Josh Nizzi shared a number of unused art he produced for Thor: The Dark World, and among them are three progress shots of Valkyrie, or at the very least, a Valkyrie. While Vaklyrie is a superhero with a long history in the Marvel universe, and many incarnations within mortal women, she first appeared as about as literal a straw feminist as you can get: an pawn of the Enchantress created to divide the Avengers along gender lines by encouraging the Wasp, Medusa, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch to embrace women’s lib. In retrospect, I assumed the issue would be kind of painful to read, but it turns out there’s no better response than laughter to the existence of a comic in which someone smashes through a window and yells “UP AGAINST THE WALL, MALE CHAUVINIST PIG” at the Hulk. That’s a line that’s really lost on any color of Hulk except perhaps this one.

It’s a pity Valkyrie (or a Valkyrie, or the Valkyries, I’m not picky) didn’t get her debut in The Dark World, but really the movie had enough on its plate already. Maybe next time. You can find two more pieces of concept art, including one with her winged horse Aragorn, at Nizzi’s page.
