Tom Hiddleston couldn't have known that his Loki would become the biggest heartthrob in the Marvel Universe when he walked in all those years ago to audition for the role of Thor. It's perhaps wise, then, that Marvel Studios have now released--or will soon, anyway, if this leak is any indication--some footage from his shirtless audition for Thor, in which he first read for Thor himself before settling into his now-comfortable role as Loki, the Trickster God.
It's interesting that in this featurette, Kevin Feige and company reveal how they went from thinking about Tom as the God of Thunder and instead casting him as the God Of Mischief. It's clearly one of those "Ah-Ha" moments that happens and the entire world is better for it.
What do you think? Would you have rather seen Tom as Thor? Or are you glad he's now and forever Loki?
