A Bare-Chested, Blond-Haired Badass: Watch Tom Hiddleston Audition As Thor (Updated with Video)

Jan 29, 2014

When Thor: The Dark World arrives on DVD/Blu-ray this February 25, it will come with this behind-the-scenes gem that we can't wait to watch in full. Before he was cast as the villainous Loki opposite Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Tom Hiddleston auditioned for the role of Thor, and boy did he give it his all. 

While we don't have the complete video yet, these two GIFs have arrived online showcasing two moments from the audition. In one, a bare-chested, blond-haired Hiddleston ferociously throws his hammer up into the air. In another he swings the hammer toward the screen as a gust of wind blows back his golden locks. And though he definitely looks like he's in full-on Thor mode, it's kind of impossible to watch this without thinking about how wrong he would've been for the part. Probably because we know him and love him as Loki, and can't really envision him as anyone else in the Marvel universe. 

What do you think? When you see this, do you feel Marvel cast the wrong Thor?

UPDATED: Check out the video below.
