Wanna See Tom Hiddleston’s Audition to Play Thor in Thor?


And now you know how all those gifs of Tom Hiddleston with Thor hair showed up on Tumblr.

(If you’re looking for Thor bloopers, we couldn’t embed them, but you can find them at MTV.)

Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Whoa. Just 15 minutes and the video is already not available O.o

    Not sure what the deal is, it’s an MTV exclusive that went up yesterday but I’ve seen the video acting up elsewhere also. Try reloading the page first, then if that doesn’t work try clicking on the link in the video.

    Seeing Tom as Thor seems fundamentally wrong. It makes me uncomfortable in the weirdest ways, as if it happened in the same AU the Don’t hug me I’m scared series takes place. That AU where things leave you unsettled and you can’t pinpoint why.

  • Vetinari

    I’m now imagining that Tom Hiddleston secretly resents Chris Hemsworth for getting the role of Thor and all his resentment as Loki is based around everyone praising Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and leaving Tom as the villain.

    It does make for an interesting parallel.
    “I’m sorry, Tom…we’re going with the blonde giant with the bulging muscles.”
    “But I’m brilliant! And charismatic! And can really take the role of a leader!”
    “Yes, but he’s got the right physique for it.”
    “But…but….I’m the better person for the job! This is why Loki was bitter!”
    “Oh good, you get him. Run with that.”

    Maybe they asked him to prep for Thor without telling him he had no chance, -just to make him into a better Loki-.

    I felt the same way too, even just seeing the .gifs. It was like “Nope nope nope nope.” He looked like a singer in some bad hair metal band in the 80′s.

    As Loki though…man, oh man. “yep yep yep yep!”

    I’m sorry, even seeing Tom Hiddleston shirtless will not stop me from thinking that he is yelling “I HAVE THE POWER” while swinging that hammer. That’s how cheesy he looks with shaggy blonde hair.

    *teary rage face*
    That’s why you preferred Chris all these months!
    YOU COULD NEVER HAVE AN ENGLISHMAN AS A HERO!

  • Charlie

    Oh god thankyou, I was trying to think what he reminded me of and now I know.

  • Mark Brown

    Y’know, a new MotU movie would be pretty cool. . .

  • Anonymous

    Yes, but who has the bigger fanbase or fangirls I should say.

  • locuas

    “I’m sorry, but you don’t look like thor. but you do look like Captain america…unfortunately we already have chris evans, but you could be Loki if you are interested, and we promise to let you dress like CA in the sequel!”

  • Alexa

    Yeah he is better suited as Loki, but man is that footage of him shirtless distracting. :3

  • Andrea Pantoja

    You understand me completely, dearest Greycat.
