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.
