At times it can seem like there’s little point to actually buying Blu-ray discs. Sure, there’s the little matter of the superior sound and picture, but these days you can legally download the film (usually a few weeks before the disc release) and watch almost all the extras early as the company disperses them across the internet before discs are on shelves. Case in point, Thor: The Dark World.
The Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray doesn’t hit shelves until February 25 but we’ve already seen multiple videos from the release including Tom Hiddleston as an Avenger, auditioning for Thor and even some deleted scenes. Now, we have an extended clip from the gag reel, which is pretty cute as far as gag reels go. Check it out below. Read More »

There’s really no arguing that Loki is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best villain. As played by Tom Hiddleston, he’s so slyly charismatic that he often threatens to steal the show from right out under the real hero, Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor. But when casting for the first Thor was going on, Hiddleston wasn’t initially set on playing the bad guy. In fact, he originally tried out for the part of Thor.
The bonus features released with the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray include Hiddleston’s original audition tape for the role, in which he goes bare-chested, rocks long blond locks, and swings around the iconic hammer. See Hiddleston in action as Thor after the jump.
Update: If gifs aren’t enough, there’s now some brief video of Hiddleston’s audition, which we’ve added below.
