Tom Hiddleston playing Loki in Thor: The Dark World is one thing. Tom Hiddleston playing Loki wearing Captain America’s outfit is quite the other.
Loki as Captain American didn’t actually get used in the final cut of the film. Captain America himself Chris Evans did that. But in between the Loki turning into Captain America magic of the cinema, Hiddleston had some fun wearing the Captain America outfit.
It may have been for a purpose. A run through while Chris Evans was away or something. But Hiddleston may have just fancied a go in it. You would, wouldn’t you?
Lucky for us the footage, which shows Loki using his illusion powers to annoy Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, made it onto the DVD extras.
On the outfit Loki jokes, “Ooh, the costume is a bit much. So tight”. He goes on to rib Captain America adding, “Hey, you wanna have a rousing discussion about truth, honour, patriotism… god bless America!”
Thor: The Dark World is released on DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray on February 24
