Dead gods, cyborg clones, and the end of Asgard — Ragnarok could be a big deal. Marvel recently announced that the third Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok, is due for release in July 2017, with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston returning to reprise their roles of Thor and Loki. But what is Thor: Ragnarok, exactly?

Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be big. Very big. Even the first teaser trailer hints at things we weren’t quite sure we’d see in a Marvel movie.

Others can’t though and now a few more seemingly inexplicable, but awesome, news has been revealed.
Keeping it vague, a very popular actor who has previously appeared in the MCU did an interview and revealed that he (or she) has a role in Avengers: Age of Ultron and he (or she) is joined by another popular actor who has previously appeared in the MCU.

But now that he has the role, the question is whether Hiddleston’s got the chops — and naturally, Hiddleston seems very eager to put any doubts to rest. Over the weekend, he took the stage at Michigan’s Wheatland Music Festival for a performance of Williams’ “Move It On Over.” Hit the jump to watch Tom Hiddleston sing as Hank Williams.
