If you’ve had sex more than once since 2003, sweet, sweet 2003… *presses hand against window longingly* I’ll never forget you, Phoenix, which was definitely your real name. – you probably don’t know that Tom Hiddleston originally auditioned for the role of Thor only to be cast as Loki instead which worked out pretty darn well for the Internet. So below are GIFs of his audition which will apparently be on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray. So whoever came up with the marketing strategy of, “Eh, just leak shit,” I say this with all sincerity, you are light years ahead of your contemporaries. LIGHT YEARS.

    My nerdgina thanks you.

    Second GIF looks like an 80s music video.

  4. He would’ve made a good Thor, but he would’ve had to put on some serious muscle. He perfect for the role of Loki. Everything is as it’s supposed to be.

    I am sure there are were some H-Wood executurds out there who would have been pleased as punch with Mahky Mahk as Thah takin that gay-ass rainbow bridge to Asgahd, so count your blessings that any of any of it turns out even half-way decent.

    I did know he auditioned as Thor, and am glad things turned out the way they did.
