Tom Hiddleston’s Audition To Play THOR Hits In GIF Form


loki bannerIt’s a fairly well known fact that Tom Hiddleston originally auditioned for director Kenneth Branagh to play the part of Thor, but everyone just didn’t feel he was right for the role. Things didn’t work out for that role and Chris Hemmsworth was chosen. Hiddleston was convinced to take on the part of Loki and we all know the rest of the story. Hiddleston went on to become one of the biggest stars in the Marvel Universe and gained a cult following in real life and online all across the world. Many thought that the actor’s audition for Thor was lost to the ages considering it didn’t make it onto the Thor or Avengers DVD, but it turns out Marvel was just waiting for the right time to capitalize on Hiddleston-mania.

Loki stole the show in Thor: The Dark World, so there was no better opportunity to break off a piece of Hiddleston than on the special features for the upcoming Blu-ray release. Hiddleston‘s Thor audition will be included along with the scene we saw yesterday of him wearing the Captain America suit as a stand in for Chris Evans’ cameo. Video may hit later today, but for now you can check out two GIFs of the audition tape. You can see why Hiddleston didn’t exactly wow the room during his try out. Things did work out pretty great for him and audiences though. What do you think of HiddleThor?
