Glimpse Of Tom Hiddleston's Screen Test To Be THOR

Before Tom Hiddleston signed on with Marvel Studios to be Loki in Kenneth Branagh's Thor, he auditioned for the role of the God of Thunder, which eventually went to Chris Hemsworth. Come see a bare-chested Tom sporting long-blonde locks.

When Marvel Studios releases Thor: The Dark World on 3D Combo Pack, Single-Disc Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand February 25th, one of the bonus features will include Tom Hiddleston's Thor screen test. As you can see from the images in this article, its not the Loki screen test, but in fact his audition for the God of Thunder. Of course in the end director Kenneth Branagh chose Aussie actor, Chris Hemsworth. Besides Tom, Hemsworth had stiff competition from Charlie "Pacific Rim" Hunnam, Alexander "True Blood" Skarsgård, Joel "RoboCop" Kinnaman and even his little brother, Liam "Hunger Games" Hemsworth.

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD is being directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") and will be coming to DVD soon. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Rene Russo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Zachary Levi, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Christopher Eccleston, and Idris Elba.

The second ome made me giggle a bit. Now that I've seen him as Loki I can't picture him being Thor
Starkasm - 1/28/2014, 12:04 AM
I just can't even imagine it.
TopCat89 - 1/28/2014, 12:05 AM
Perfect Loki

Bad Thor

Good move by Marvel
TopCat89 - 1/28/2014, 12:09 AM
He has the acting chops...but even if he beefed up a lot, I couldn't agree with the casting....guess his casting as Loki clouds any judgement
Desrow - 1/28/2014, 12:09 AM
Not bad at all, great actor.
Kurne - 1/28/2014, 12:14 AM

pesmerga44 - 1/28/2014, 12:37 AM
I love Tom Hiddleston man does the guy have fun he is having a blast playing Loki and being involved in these projects. No wonder Loki is so huge the best performances are usually made by an actor loving what he is doing and having fun.

It looks like dance number from Gay-musical Prometheus. Not that I watched it....
MrReese - 1/28/2014, 12:58 AM
lol he's better off as Loki.Dude IS Loki.
mgeoff88 - 1/28/2014, 1:09 AM
Ha ha, this is so weird to see. It's hard to see Tom Hiddleston as Thor since he is so perfect as Loki.

@Humperdink Holy shit! LMAO!!!
Brainiac13 - 1/28/2014, 1:13 AM
Can't see anyone else play Loki.


SuperSomething616 - 1/28/2014, 1:23 AM
Suppose it depends how he would have looked buffed 6ft 1" he not matter how buff he got he just wouldn't have the stature Chris has at 6ft 4"...

He would have had to wear lifts or something...nah Brannagh got it spot on...Chris = Thor, Tom = Loki!!!

Nuff Said!!!

Man why you gotta be so funny man.

This thread is hilarious. The thread itself reads like a wrestling announcement.

Then Humperdick happens.
TucksFrom2015 - 1/28/2014, 1:39 AM
there's nothing wrong with Evan peters 70's Disco Quicksilver
but I do find it funny how the silver hair, silver jacket and goggles can be so negatively recieved, like fanboys are turning into fashionistas
BadassBay - 1/28/2014, 2:29 AM
DominicMasonTykes I don't think you have to be a fashionista to know that silver hair, silver jacket and googles are a bad choice, no matter what decade you're in.

I'm so glad Marvel didn't go with Hiddleston as Thor and gave him Loki. Great casting by Marvel.
mgeoff88 - 1/28/2014, 2:46 AM
@DMT My rule of thumb with superhero suits is, if I have a problem with wearing it myself out in public, then that means it's bad.

Gusto would have to slip me a roofie to get me to wear Quicksilver's suit. That's how terrible it is. I mean, I actually feel bad for Evan Peters, because he has to wear that.
NeoBaggins - 1/28/2014, 3:03 AM
LMAO! This is up there with David Prowse doing Vader's voice.
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/28/2014, 3:47 AM
@Humperdink Haha this made my day!!

Lol gusto told me that he likes Quicksilver's suit, he would definitely wear it!

And Tom as Thor?? Well, maybe with some more muscles. But still, his voice is calmer, I like Hemsworth's voice for Thor, it's more furious.

Yeah Hiddleston got hooked up with the Loki role, the most memorable role in the Thor franchise.
breakUbatman - 1/28/2014, 4:20 AM
Also would love to know what was so special about Fandral or Zachary Levi that they hyped up such a minor role. Did anyone care about Fandral in TDW?
mgeoff88 - 1/28/2014, 4:33 AM
@TheDarkPhoenix Gusto is such a rebel, he would wear Quicksilver's suit sober.

We're going to have to start calling him QuickGusto or Gustosilver.

lucio7lopez - 1/28/2014, 4:34 AM
He's the perfect Loki!
batfan175 - 1/28/2014, 4:37 AM
The first one reminded me of Iggy Pop....
