Why did the new Thor movie: the dark world not feature much of Loki in the trailer?

Does the creators really think that "Thor" carried the movie? I don't know about you but I find Loki is the only reason I watch the movie theories. I thought the guy who played Thor was terrible and basically he acts like a big dumb guy.

It's strange. I logged on saw 108 posts and then got: Thread does not exist and then saw 109 posts!!! Didn't see anything overtly offensive.

But to the point of this new thread: the titular name of the movie is Thor who is the hero. I agree the first movie depicted Thor as a good guy lunkhead who was quite full of himself. Compared to conniving Loki, Thor is dull witted. FWIW, there's more of Loki in the latest round of trailers.

Speculation is rampant in the entertainment press that the script for Thor 2 TDW was a mess. After Hiddleston's appearance as Loki at Comic Con was so well received Kevin Feige, the producer had him film more scenes. And Feige publicly acknowledged this was because of Loki/TH's popularity. Joss Whedon also flew to London to rewrite some scenes in the last six weeks or so. This is cutting it very close. There's a lot more of Hiddleston in the teasers, trailers and newly released Thor 2 featurettes.

What I find strange is that so far Tom is the only one doing a full court press promoting Thor 2. I know CH has been busy filming other movies and promoting The Rush movie but with just 3 weeks to go, time for him to step up.

by Anonymousreply 2310/06/2013

Loki is a much hotter character than Thor. Bruding Thor. Loki is colorful and has a badass mojo. TH's posh noble background allows him to channel Loki's entitlement issues with confidence. I was shocked to learn he's a ginge. The actor who played Thor had a ginger face so not only couldn't we buy him as a true Norseman, he lacks the confidence in all of his roles. In my mind, I pretend I'm the director working his scenes and come away feeling that I can't get blood from a stone. Watching him attempt to act is so frustrating when compared to Loki, who hits it out of the park.

R23 I'm not sure why the lion's share of the Thor 2 TDW promotion has fallen to Hiddleston. The London premiere is Oct. 30th just over 3 weeks away. Hemsworth should be gearing up to promote it, since he's the titular lead! I understand CH has been busy but Thor 2 is a big budget film and he's going to be in Avengers 2. His other movie "Rush" has stalled at the box office here in the U.S.

Loki is featured as prominently as Thor in all of the magazine coverage and covers like Empire and Total Film so far. And there's now a lot more of him in the latest trailers and featurettes. The producers are aware that Loki is a big draw.

R31 London's première is on Oct. 22nd, Paris on Oct. 24th. LA's on Nov. 4th. So far these are the only ones announced with cast attendance, I guess since the movie will be released in most countries on Oct 30th (except for Italy on Nov. 20th and Korea, I think. Japan is at the end of Jan or beginning of Febr.) doing a première with cast everywhere was impossible. TH is given for sure only for London and Paris.

The lack of promotion by CH is strange though, you're right. Rush in Europe is doing pretty well, but here F1 is a big deal and lot of people remember Lauda accident and the story.

R51 I agree it's very strange that Hemsworth wouldn't travel to his native Australia to promote Thor2 -- even if only to visit his parents! Maybe he'll be there for the Australian premiere.

And as hunky as CH is, he's never going to set the world afire with his acting abilities even if Joss Whedon does love him. The Red Dawn remake and Cabin in the Woods were utterly forgettable. He got very good reviews for Rush which is doing OK in Europe but not much interest here in the US. He should follow Hiddleston's example and happily promote Thor 2 -- that's his best chance of getting a raise for the big budget Avengers 2. I guess the rest of the cast feels like they're making coolie wages compared to RDJ's $50M payday. Whedon has already said he's aiming for it to make $2B worldwide.

by Anonymousreply 5510/07/2013

Thing is Thor, as character, was quite boring in Thor1 and didn't have much space in The Avengers. So CH didn't get the hype that TH got from these two movies, media or internet. All the work he received wasn't a direct consequence of Thor.

TH after that hype hit a wall, bad luck played a part but next year he won't have a single movie coming out, while CH has just shot a movie with Mann. And CH will be in The Avengers. TH is likely at his last passage with Loki (who believes in a solo movie, really!).

If they did a good job with CS's character in Thor2 he might get more limelight this time. So in the long run maybe things turned out for the best for CH.

Tom might be in the running for a new role in an Australian movie, playing an Aussie poet called Banjo Paterson.

They're looking for someone with face/name recognition so Tom's press stint in Aus might help him clinch this role. Expect him to do some serious sucking up while he's there. He's up against Cumberbatch and Redmayne as usual.

by Anonymousreply 5810/07/2013

I'm guessing he's doing lots of signings, q&as to show he has bankability. They're going to use the fangirls to show the movie execs he's a 'star'. So far this approach hasn't worked at all so I wonder.

by Anonymousreply 5910/07/2013

A bit more complicated than that and much more competition than "just" Cumberbatch and Redmayne.

The producer wants James Franco and here it says they should start early next year. TH should be busy with Crimson Peak right?

by Anonymousreply 6010/07/2013

TH is posher than posh on both sides of the family. His mother comes from old money (a lot of it) and aristocracy, his father new money (a lot of it). If he truly was the first in his family to go to Eton, it is probably because the men on his mother's side all went to Harrow.

I have noticed he is really trying hard in recent interviews to downplay his poshness and call attention the "working class roots" on his father's side, but as always this is all about his image. Truth is, any contact with the working class is far back in the family tree, out of reach, an abstraction. Too bad he can't take things a little deeper and actually unpack that suitcase of privilege and use it.

Banjo Paterson is an Australian legend, and this part is made for Joel Edgarton, who, in addition to being such a fine actor is a very talented musician who can do something with a ballad. It is going to be shocking if they hire a non-Australian for the part, but I understand their constraints.

I do not seeing TH fitting well into this role at all. I am sure he will campaign for it heavily, but he is just too.... posh. And his talent really is slight.

by Anonymousreply 6110/07/2013

2013 was a bad year for TH in terms of new work. But he may yet end the year on a high note in terms of PR & heightened visibility courtesy of Thor 2 (his last hurrah as Loki for the foreseeable future) and Coriolanus.

The Jim Jarmusch vampire film OLLA will be released in early spring 2014. This isn't a big budget film so who knows how many theaters will carry it.

Re: Banjo Patterson role, TH said that was the first he'd heard of it. I think the article was drumming up names to get someone like Joel E. to drop his $. TH looked good - thin as a rake - but damn handsome. The ginger beard and hair is aces, but they need to leave some hair on the side of his head, as the hairstyle looks too high in front. Go back to the look from Avengers/Moscow.

by Anonymousreply 7310/07/2013

Oh sure. It's the first he's heard if it. As if. He is never going to admit that he is auditioning because he would look like an "also ran" if he doesn't get it. Actors never talk about roles until they have them in the bag.

I am not crazy about the haircut, but his hairline is really going south. His HC hairdo is not coming back unless he resorts to plugs.

[R75]Relax, I'm just reporting what he said.

by Anonymousreply 11010/08/2013

A housemaster is a teacher. He was a house captain. A popular boy who is allowed to use discipline and keep the other kids in check.

At Eton, the boys live together in different boarding houses on one campus. Each house has a house master in charge of looking after the boys and making sure they do their work/don't get in trouble. The 'nurses' are basically maids. They clean up and basically act as surrogate mothers to the boys, since otherwise they would hardly ever see any women.

Eton calls these people dames. I think, but am not sure, they often employ registered nurses as dames. Dames have assistants and between them they keep the pupils' lodgings clean, organise laundry, do a bit of pastoral care and take care of cuts and bruises etc.

They are a combination of cleaner, secretary, laundress and nurse.

In short, they are servants: the school's version of the nannies these boys had at home.

I am familiar with the Eton system. "Nurses," "Dames," etc. are housekeepers. They clean the rooms, do laundry, supervise the cleaners, and kiss boo-boos. They are absolutely servants, no different from the porter or the guy who cleans your staircase at Oxford or Cambridge.

I don't think TH intended to be patronizing, but he is always a bit patronizing. The fact that he is patronizing and hasn't troubled himself to know what he is doing kind of gets to the heart of the problem imho. He doesn't like being judged for being posh, but it is a system he believes in.

by Anonymousreply 12310/08/2013

No, I wouldn't say so. In general I think it depends on what kind of fan he's facing, hysterical or nice. Anyway, male fans tend all to write that he is nice and cool.

by Anonymousreply 12410/08/2013

He always does a big goofy smile and cuddles with the girls and then stands looking awkward around the guys. It's putting on a different face for the required audience. for boys, he's epic/cool/legendary. For girls he's sweet/adorbs/fluffy/perfect/gentleman. There was a couple of fanpics from Australia which were hilarious.

He looks fine. The only thing that's very obvious when he's standing next to guys is that it emphasizes how thin he is. Hiddleston needs to eat; he's disappearing.

by Anonymousreply 13510/08/2013

Yep, TH is metabolically blessed with a super fast metabolism that allows him to eat whatever he wants and still be slim. The issue for him as an actor is that when he loses weight and gets too thin it shows in his face. He does have nice pecs. But as someone mentioned upthread he's got a lollipop head. That combined with his receding hairline makes him look older than his 32 years. He's aged a lot in the last few years -- big difference in his face in the original Thor and now. GQ reporter pointedly mentioned that he looked much "slimmer" in person than in his pictures.

Wow, it's amazing how much you all hate Tom Hiddleston.

Also amazing; How that hate somehow manifests as watching his interviews repeatedly, worrying about his metabolism and diet, advising him on the most attractive hairstyles, obsessively stalking his fuck buddies to the extent of knowing who they follow on Twitter and the exact date they stop following people, tracing his family tree back multiple generations, researching his prep schooling, and being able to cite examples of how he poses with random individuals over time.

You pathetic fanchicks are not fooling anybody except yourselves. Fuck of back to Tumblr with the rest of your ilk, bitches.

I dunno, I found her post to be believable. She wasn't claiming any vast intimate knowledge, she was just reporting a chance encounter that to me seemed very characteristic of TH.

I deeply suspect, based upon things I have heard from so many people who have met TH, that he is excessively eager to please, eager to be liked, needy and overenthusiastic, hits up on women left and right, and doesn't really notice when he strikes out-- and its striking how often he strikes out. Ever wonder why this guy is alone so much?

We are in the countdown to Thor 2 and he is on a promo tour. He is going to do backflips to please everyone and if it means giving piggyback rides, so be it. I think he knows that his career depends upon the success of Thor 2, so he will do whatever he can to get butts in seats.

I think his talent as an actor is limited, but one thing he has going for himself professionally is he is tireless at promoting the film. Someone will notice that.

" Seeing Tom Hiddleston in the flesh was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, but I will not deny that it was also heartbreaking. It may sound strange, but it is likely a sentiment shared by the hundreds of fans who waited outside the Kinokuniya bookstore from 4.30am – 10.00am yesterday morning, even though we knew the 150 places were already taken. It was likely felt by those 2800 people who missed out on one of the invitations to the Popcorn Taxi Q&A session on Tuesday night. And I’m sure I was not the only one who burst into tears on the plane home thinking that this morning Tom was leaving Australia.

Tom would hate to know of our heartbreak. He would most likely try to comfort us all with hugs and “I’m so sorry darlings”. And therefore, I will not focus on that. Instead I will focus on the amazing experiences, and there were many."

I don't get why anyone would ask someone they don't know to do something like this. You've only just met the man and you want him to give you a piggyback ride? Weird.

I'm guessing TH sort of enjoys the attention or is happy to tirelessly promote Thor (and Loki and himself) by whatever means necessary. I still find his dorky enthusiasm preferable to him being 'above that sort of thing', but can't the fans dial it down a notch?

Meanwhile, he's still doing 90% of the promotion for Thor 2 although TH, Hemsworth and Feige will be doing Skype interviews. Even if Thor bombs, Hiddleston will have garnered massive amounts of PR courtesy of Loki. He'll have to live off that buzz for awhile.

He told us to dance more, sadly not with examples.

He sat like a whore nearly the whole time, and spent half the interview rubbing his leg — very distracting, let me tell you!

The interview ended with an exclusive clip never released anywhere. He had to check with the MC that that was what they were about to show us, so he was standing and bending over slightly to talk to the guy — let’s just say those pants were stretching in all the right place!"

People exaggerate how bad his fans are. Or rather, the fans can get nutty but I believe he doesn't get exposed to it as much as people think.

The story about fan jumping him at Cannes? No proof, probably didn't happen. Any woman who he dates getting death threats? Again, everyone says so at Tumblr but there is never any proof. There was one screencap of one user sending nasty messages to Sian, that's it. If people are constantly seeing so much hate directed at these women, where are the screencaps? Jane Arthy especially, I followed the situation, the only place I saw hate towards her was here - on Tumblr, it was just the usual "I'm so happy for them" crap. People talk like he's about to be murdered by a fangirl, I mean most of them are teenagers, what are they going to do? I'm sure Tommy is a big boy who can defend himself and doesn't become traumatized if some 14 yo girl in loki costume gives him a hug.

Yeah, he gets embarrassing fan mail and messages on twitter and some of his fans are socially retarded. Guess what? That's part of the job of anyone who is famous. It happens to every single actor, especially when they are involved in geek projects. He makes millions for every Marvels movie he plays in, I'm not going to weep for how hard he has it because someone send him a porn fanfic once. Boo fucking hoo.

If he was A-lister it would be different. Right now his fanbase is small enough that he can deal with it. whether the way he deals with his fans makes him look good or bad, everyone can decide that for themselves, but let's not pretend that there is any real harm being done to anyone. Not even Tommy boy's sensitive little upper class soul.

Well, first thing, we now know that the person that posted that supposed recent sighting of TH and JA is Janine at CB.

MissThing used to defend the man far and beyond, just read her comments in past posts. I'm curious.

by Anonymousreply 23610/12/2013

MissThing's story sounds like the early confessions of someone sexually harassed. This doesn't mean he did something like that and to be honest I really don't think he is the kind of man to force himself on anyone but I'm really curious what it is she feels the need to hide, I doubt she'd feel obligated to keep things secret if it was just seeing him with someone or being mean et al. Maybe he's into really weird stuff in bed.

by Anonymousreply 23710/12/2013

R237 What is the "kind of man to force himself on anyone"? Many rapists and abusers are absolutely charming to the public and extremely popular.

by Anonymousreply 23810/12/2013

R238 we would have heard of it don't you think? Please, let's not go from unicorn-prince to rapist in one go.

MissThing claims he behaved like an asshole to her and that for him women are objects. But then she says that she promised him not to say a word. Why on earth would you feel like you need to keep a promise to an asshole I have no idea.

All this can refer to many things, from a hook-up to a conversation where he dissed people. It could also be BS. Waiting for more details.

by Anonymousreply 23910/12/2013

If she doesn't reply within the next 12 hours I am calling bullshit. It's always a tease and run kind of situation where the poster panics when they can't think of anything else to add.

by Anonymousreply 24010/12/2013

R237 here, I never meant to say he was a "rapist" that's a horrible accusation and it's a very serious issue that shouldn't even come up in a gossip site where any kind of information spreads like wild fire, for that I'm really sorry I wish I never wrote that post, I regretted it the moment I clicked save post.

All I wanted to say was she made it sound like a huge deal, and I tend to believe tea spillers so I wondered what it might be she wanted to keep a secret.

And this is why datalounge needs a delete post button.

Well, since everybody says at DL we are idiots, I went looking back for MissThing commens on TH in CB past posts.

In this thread ttp://

her comments are dates Oct.6th and she is siding with him.

Same in this thread ttp://

in her comment dated Oct.9th

But in this thread ttp://

comment 10, where somebody wrote TH flirted with her friend at BIFA last year, MissThing comment, dated Oct. 10th was

[quote] Oh you guys have no idea…

After 2 days, she decides to write about how she changed her opinion of him. TH was in Sydney on Oct 10th, for her post to be true she is Australian or at least she was in Sydney, but she doesn't work in the business because in a previous thread she wrote that talking to him could only happen in her fantasy world.

Well no, we would not necessarily have heard of it before now, though we have had plenty of rumors.I have no trouble believing that TH is a complete and utter douchbag. People don't get ahead in this business by being nice. His charming and polite veneer has always struck me as fake and entirely about publicity.

I also have no trouble believing that he is very good at managing his image and controlling what gets spilled. It's not that difficult: all you have to do is make sure there is a substantial power imbalance, so that if a person spills tea, he/she will get more splashed and be made to look more ridiculous than you. This silences people all of the time. Some people in power really like to test just how far they can push this.

R234 I wonder if the one posting is a friend of JA

also R236 , Janine, seriously? Oh Lord, if that is who I think it is and she's using her real name and lives in the NW3 postcode, then I might believe the tea because I know her personally. Acquaintance wise. I don't want to say how we met because she might not want the info out there

Janine claims she saw the infamous weekend hookup with her own eyes. She also claims she has never posted on DL.

MissThing has been posting on CB's Hiddleston threads for a long time. I vaguely remember her meeting him or her colleagues did at a party? She works in PR or her friend does? Trolling from both of them most likely.

by Anonymousreply 24610/12/2013

It's so interesting how his stans see him. He sold them an educated, polite, English gentleman, complete with a humble, caring, interested-in-them persona. LOL- that could not be further from the truth. What is his professional training? He pretends for his job- an actor. What was his upbringing? Wealthy, upper-class English. Privileged beyond belief. And they think he CARES about THEM? About the poor in Africa? He does all that to sell movie tickets. He cares about himself, as do all actors. Those sad people fall for it without question. They'd sell their souls for the content of their porn fiction about him as Loki to be reality. They refuse to acknowledge ANYTHING that blurs that perfect image of a perfect man.

Well played, Mr. Hiddleston.

The only way this guy is fundamentally different from every photo,interview or appearance we've ever seen is if he's a sociopath.

Some might have gotten offended,bothered and whatnot by him and now claim he's the top asshole to walk this earth but I think in the case of people with unbruised egos, he doesn't come off as such a drastic ass.

Like I said, he cannot be that different unless he's psycho. He may not be rainbows and unicorns all the time but I have a very hard time believing he's the complete and utter opposite

His fans on tumblr are ridiculous

by Anonymousreply 27310/12/2013

So I took my time and read previous entries of this MissThing on CB (damn, I need to get a life), where she says: she’s a fan; she’s on tumblr and follows his thread; she’s an American, living in America; mentions, numerously, that she sees his flaws (fame whoring, attention seeking, etc.) but still would like to fuck him senseless. BTW, she said that if she did, she would shout about it from the rooftops, LOL. Also that she never met him but would like to. Didn’t see her mentioning that she had a professional connection; ladies on CB made that conclusion for some reason.

Her latest entries, on Oct 9 “…If I ever get to talk to him (in my fantasy world), I’ll ask about the damn fur ok?”; Oct 10, at 12:02 am “Oh you guys have no idea…” re: his hitting on women; Oct 10, at 2:18 am “Oh TommyAnnE… Sadly, despite everything yes I would still hit it. And I am ashamed.” And then today he is “damaged goods”, “asshole”, etc.

So what changed? She went to Sydney or Beijing and met him IRL a day or two ago? And he showed her his true face at once and then asked not to tell anyone? IDK, I’m calling it BS until proven otherwise. Probably just a scorned fan and a troll. Maybe he didn’t follow her on Twitter or smth.

No rape implied or any of that nonsense. I am not Jane Arthy. I am someone who has had a few conversations with him and there are times when he can be very nice and times when he is a veritable asshole. I just get tired of people gushing on how wonderful of a person they think he is. He is a flawed human like the rest of us and he has a lot of emotional issues and baggage. I guess my point earlier was made out of frustration more than anything else.

He is a decent person… When he wants to be. All I was saying is that he is not necessarily to pushover, submissive wuss some people around here think he is and he sure as hell isn’t all sunshine and roses. When I see fans gushing over how gentlemanly and authentic he is, it just makes me cringe. Like any actor fantasize all you like, just be aware that the real deal is not someone you’d want for anything other a quick tumble in the hay. Lucky for most of you out there, if you have a pulse and are not ugly, you have a good shot at it.

Honestly, in Europe this is not unusual - well educated Brits can speak several languages, particularly if they've had the high level of education he's had.

It mentioned in the GQ interview he studied Greek and Latin at school - but as they're both dead languages you're said to "read", not speak them. He studied Classics at Cambridge so obviously learnt Greek tragedies and can still recite them.

He is obviously good at languages, music to a certain extent, and a great dancer, and he is a born performer. But these things do not make him perfect.

The National Theatre Live's showings of "Frankenstein" are what really made Cumbermania happen, at least in the U.S. I saw both versions of "Frankenstein" back to back the summer before last with audiences packed with thrilled young women in Sherlock-looped scarves. They were clearly all ready to squee over Sherlock on the big screen, but what they got was a double-barrelled bravura performance by a first-rate actor in a highly sophisticated but very accessible vehicle. Me, I'm just trusting that Hiddleston's Coriolanus will turn out more on the level of Alan Howard's (yay) rather than Ralph Fiennes' (bleah.)

Hi Guys! Classics major here!

Yes I have majored in Classics, Latin and Greek, at an Ivy League school. It was enormous fun, but let's get some perspective here: unless you are someone who cannot imagine ever learning another language, it is not rocket science.

People especially tend to be overly impressed with Greek because (OMG!) it's a different alphabet, but that takes only a couple of days to learn. It's actually not a difficult language. Majoring in Classics really is no different from being an English major.

Here's my evaluation of TH's command on languages, based upon what I have actually heard:

French: High school level. Clearly he took French at Eton. Conversational, not bad, but far, far from proficient.

Spanish: Really lame. a bit better than courtesy level, but not much. The interview I saw where he spoke Spanish was filled with mistakes, but let's face it, people tend to be very generous if you make any effort to learn their language.

Italian: he memorized some phrases from a guidebook and mispronounced a lot. Courtesy level.

Chinese: Memorized a couple of basic phrases. Not even courtesy level. But once again, in a place like China, even the effort to learn how to say "hello" will be given a lot of credit.

In other words: no children, he is not multi-lingual. Far from it. Yes, he is very willing to let people give him credit for being so. I saw an interview where the reporter fawned all over him "Wow, you are well known for being incredibly smart, aren't you?" and I found him to be embarrassing.

Smart? My closest friend from college has an MD and a Ph.D in biochemistry and has done groundbreaking research in AIDS. That, AND she's actually fluent in four languages (meaning she can study medicine and follow research in those languages). THAT is smart.

TH is just a pretentious twit.

Regarding Miss Thing on CB:

I have no idea what her contact has actually been. I guess she could just be a bitter ex-fan. It is also possible that she met him and was shocked as what a silly asshole he actually was. Who knows? She could have a lot of tea to spill, an interesting story to tell, but if everyone jumps all over her and calls her names and assumes the worst, why would she want to take it further?

What sticks with me is that he sounds like a jerk who cannot keep anything in his pants and feels entitled to whatever he wants: "If you have a pulse and you're not ugly, your chances are good." That sounds like asshole to me, and I speak as someone who has had plenty of fuck buddies.

"The problem is MissThing has posted plenty of times before and barely alluded to any assholery before, so why suddenly bring it up now with so much vitriol and certainty?"


A: She finally met him. He rejected her and she is out for revenge. Revenge!

B: She finally met him. He didn't reject her, but was a total jerk, and it was really clear he would sleep with anyone who was available.

Anything is possible. Most likely a combination of both. I am fully capable of believing that he is a jerk with women and feels highly entitled to get off at everyone's else's expense, mainly because this kind of assholery is so common is show biz. So much so, I am always surprised when anyone expects anything to be different.

In other words, I have no problem believing that she was a horny and starry-eyed fan expecting the wrong things. I also have no problem believing that he was a total creep to her and to others. She might be flawed, but this does not prove that she is lying.

Luke manages several people for Public Eye, not just TH, though it is clear that TH is one of their major clients. TH pays for this, btw.

One of Luke's main draws is that GQ is one of his major clients. This is the only reason someone as lacking in style as TH could ever do a GQ spread. It also speaks volumes about TH's priorities. Getting into the fashion magazines, and positioning himself for endorsements is clearly one of his primary goals. There is very, very big money in this. No endorsements yet, but you had better believe he is pushing for this.

Does he get his Armani suits for free? He seems to have a deal with them.

I absolutely agree he is trying to get himself in a campaign like Eddie Redmayne did Burberry, this tiny little tour is just an exercise in trying to prove Hiddleston is marketable in big markets like China. Nobody is forcing him to do those wet shirt in a bath photoshoots. He's keen to establisah himself as a model, that much is clear.

He loves the swag. There have been plenty of pictures of him leaving award shows with bags of freebies, and nearly all of his everyday clothes are Armani, presumably free. You never see him in anything that's not designer gear. Even his thin bad quality t-shirts are Armani.

Imagine how many poor Syrian children could be fed/dressed if he sold off that gear and gave it to his favourite charity, the charity he would do anything to support with his noble golden heart.

[quote] Loki is the only thing he is really known for. In everything else he has done, he has been fair to middling at best.

Loki was fair to middling too if you are talking about performance. It was a cool, showy role in a genre where fandom tends to be particularly passionate, but I didn't see him actually bringing anything special to the role. His narrow face, lean body and sharp features suited the part, but his actual performance was just competent in my opinion. I was expecting something more considering all the mania around him and the character and was underwhelmed when I got around to seeing Thor. I went on to watch The Avengers because I thought maybe he did a more impressive job there and I just hadn't yet seen the material that had so excited his fans.

It looks like a much different situation than, say, Andrew Scott blowing up with the Moriarty role in Sherlock. That was a fabulous role, but Andrew also brought a lot to it himself as well as impressing with the very well executed switch to an alter ego. He was convincing, inventive with the part and really put a personal stamp on it.

Tom's greatest asset seems to be his publicity and people pleasing skills, but he should watch out about over exposing himself. If he reads stuff about himself online as much as some people here have claimed he should beware that too - backlash hits hard on stars who are buying their own hype and are over connected with public response.

God, the more I learn about this guy the more I dislike him.

R342 You are right. Only people who care about Loki are fangirls who love any charter like that - emo bad boy with decent looks. TH never received much praise for Loki. Comicbook/geek community doesn't really care and critics didn't go nuts over him either. Compare him to actors who have actually won the love of those two groups: Heath Ledger, Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy. Even Cumberbatch as Khan, a role that was much less complex than Loki got more attention and acclaim.

Basically, it's always telling when an actor only has fans from opposite gender. Pretty good sign their appeal isn't in their talent.

As for the other stuff? Fake, fake, fake. He cares so much about charity and yet only does it when it gives him good PR. He's multilingual except not. He constantly brings up his posh education and then whines about media being obsessed about it. He pretends to be so smart and philosophical but all he ever does is quote others - has a single original thought or genuine opinion ever come out of his mouth?? He sells himself as a style icon although one look at his style before he got Armani deal or whatever shows he has no style whatsoever. He talks about not being after fame in fame-whoring interviews. He kisses the buttocks of everyone who could help him with his career. He acts like he's a huge film star while nobody on the street would recognize him and he barely even works!

You know, I used to be pretty meh about Hiddleston. But now I'm starting to develop a sort of morbid fascination towards him. He really is something isn't he? Fun to see if his ass kissing ways will ever get him into the true stardom he so DESPERATELY wants.

This whole speaking a line in the language of the country you're in is really funny in terms of people buying it. I know a singer who used to always have semi convos with his fans during gigs, in every single native language of the country he was in and people started assuming the dude speaks all the languages of the earth.

Truth was, his earpiece was actually connected to someone backstage who would tell him what to say and what to answer and because he had a good ear,he could repeat it perfectly.

"It's [Eton] actually one of the most broad-minded places I've ever been." Of course it is, Tom.

I believe he has had MANY opportunities to "test his acting chops." He has just come up short. He didn't start acting last year. He's just not that good- his range is limited. Posh people with upper-class problems is what he does. That, and Loki- who is just that- a god with daddy issues. Dull, forgettable.

Does he have any films of note coming out next year? Besides a cameo in the Muppets and the Tinkerbell thing? All I saw him do in 2013 was make appearances everywhere, do fashion shoots, and talk about Loki (and himself). Just curious.

R357 Oh great, it's becoming a habit. Quick, some morbidly obese fangirl ask for it the next time he shows up! He wouldn't dare to say no and I'm sure someone would capture it on video.

R358 As R360 said, he does bring it up. He did it pretty recently when he was being interviewed about Loki - it had a strong vibe of "oh sure I played a comic book character but let's not forget I'm a classically trained actor here!" He also does it indirectly by bringing up Shakespeare when it's completely irrelevant (again, to remind what he has been schooled in) and by pretentiously flaunting his knowledge (like that nerd hq thing where he started speaking french when probably nobody in the room could understand - completely unnecessary and patronizing).

And he has whined about how people focus too much on his background and how posh people get stereotyped - poor rich folks who have to face so much prejudice.

Cumberbatch might be a completely stuck up, privileged twit but the difference is that at least he has some spine and says what he thinks. I don't like him but I can at least respect that. With TH, his spinelessness makes it impossible to do that.

And Cumberbatch gets plenty of hype from men too, male reviewers and male movie goers recognize his talent. Hiddles is all about sex appeal - as an actor, he is mediocre and would never had gotten as far without connections.

R359 Oh I never cared for Hardy and TDKR was a snore fest but the geek crowd liked him for some reason. Thor was not well received among geeks and Hiddlestons Loki is too different from the original for comic fans to like it.

No, I didn't, but do those scenes actually provide evidence of Tom's talents or just of the screenwriters' talents? If the scenes provide more character development but Tom still does nothing special with the material then it's no sign at all of him being a better than average actor.

Loki is a showy role. He had plenty of opportunity in the scenes that made it into the movies to make something of the part beyond the work that the writers, costume people and his own looks had done for him. I didn't see him doing that.

I wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't been seeing her ever since July. Just because a few fan girls haven't seen them together, doesn't mean they're not together. If someone doesn't want to be seen, then believe me, they won't be seen.

Honestly, with all the comments being made, I'm sure that somewhere along the line she'd drop something about being single just to get everyone off her back. I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't come to a premiere with him soon, I really wouldn't.

I believe someone even checked the timeline, and it turned out to be less than 12 hours between her saying she'd only get to meet him in her fantasies, and then suddenly having "bucketloads of tea". As they pointed out, even taking timezones into account, she must be very good.

I have what's probably a stupid question. In the pt 3 thread some posters were discussing how the Donmar cordons off the ticket holders from other fans after the show, so ticket holders can get autographs. Where is this? I'll be rushing to catch a train home and have no interest in stage dooring or getting anyone's autograph (apart from maybe Mark Gatiss, but not that bothered) and having been to the Donmar and knowing how tiny it is and how tiny those surrounding streets are, am a bit worried. Will I have to force my way through crowds of fangirls, or do the Donmar staff corral them somehow and leave a clear exit for those who just want to leave?

by Anonymousreply 45412/21/2013

I see that as proof that even TH has his breaking point. Though I agree with others that he played a strong role in creating this monster. THIS Tommy is what happens when you live for the approval of others.

Cumberbatch once said that he felt like a rabbit being squeezed to death by his over-enthusiastic fans, and the description is accurate. He's a human being, not a one man theme park. Maybe Donmar should put out a cardboard Hiddles complete with a stuffed Hiddleconda for the fans to take their idiotic selfies.

A few nights ago a sixty year old fan attacked one of Donmar's security guards. How bad does it have to get before you recognize his right to draw the line?

I don't know about the rest of you but I could use a break from the endless fangirl hysteria and speculation about who women in pictures are.

Someone mentioned around the time that the show first opened that the fangirls were treating it more like a concert than a Shakespeare play and that observation does seem to have been an accurate one.

I have to question the wisdom of Donmar security for letting anyone queue for stage door if their ticket is not for that day's performance. I've seen on this thread and on Twitter that none of the cast came out after either of today's performances. Good for them for not always feeding the insanity.

He wanted this type of fan. He worked hard to attract them.

Now the downside is here, it's a bit rich when he dials back. It's not as if he is stupid or naive. He knew what he was doing and he even employed and paid a team of people to help him achieve it.

And for all we know, he is STILL SINGLE. Being seen out with a woman does not mean he is dating her.

Such stupidity and desire to rush into things is the reason why most marriages end in divorce. And who cares if he is dating? Did the guy take a vow of celibacy? No. Is he married? No. Is he engaged? No. Is he living with someone? No. He has been spotted in public TALKING with a woman who lives in his neighborhood and whom he at one time dated. That's no indication of anything. Neither person involved has said anything about it one way or the other. The average, healthy 32 year old guy is going to have sex. The average person is going to say hello to a neighbor.

R468/R473, R478 - I'm R469 original Coriolanus threads OP here. Thanks.

I'm a theatre buff and was enjoying talking about the play. Fingers crossed that we can still do that in a Pt 4 with other like-minded DLers who have said they're going to be in attendance over the next few weeks. All we can do is be vigilant and attempt to shut them down, chase them away.

R479 I concur. Hiddleston and his PR team own a large part of this mess. Now it's landed on his doorstep & the stage door - literally. Majority of fans are fine, but the one to two percent of crazies are off the chain. Their 14 year-old mentalities don't recognize boundaries. He can't close Pandora's box now. TH has a better chance of controlling the weather than the loony fringe.

The Coriolanus topless shower scene, the homoerotic kiss with Hadley Fraser and the shower of rose petals as well as his being a nice guy and coming out to sign autographs and pose for pictures, unfortunately stoked the fires.

In the world of You Tube, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest etc., it's impossible to be on the down-low. TH's "devoted" fans make Edward Snowden and Julian Assange look like the Huckleberry Hounds of sleuthing, LOL!

However I do find it bizarre that someone who wants to discuss an off West End production of Shakespeare ends up on DL in the first place, unless they're a regular ( in which case they'll already what any thread which mentions Hiddleston/Thor/Loki is about anyway, basically gossip and speculation, this has been going on for a year now).

And the site at that link is really un-user friendly, I can't even see what the subject is. I don't just come to this site for 1 subject/thread.

R511 sorry, the "you" in my text was a general "you", I noticed afterwards it was confusing. The reason why there wasn't much discussion over tumblr and twitter about that video is because everybody came here to talk about it, in the safety anonymity provides. My point was, since these speculations never ends quickly, instead of using up a paid for thread there are alternatives.

by Anonymousreply 51212/22/2013

R512 Ah I get you. I agree, I didn't see that video posted anywhere except a few reblogs on tumblr (a place I usually avoid like the plague) and the girl who made it has made her live journal private. Wasn't even mentioned on other gossip sites. But you can't stop people gossiping, isn't that why the come here in the 1st place (as the regulars know to their obvious irritation).

I think TH was still eager with his fans by going out and signing autographs and taking pics with them even though it was previews and the Donmar said no stage door at that time. But now I think his eagerness is dwindling. He began to only come out every now and then and he has looked exhausted. I don't think he really understood what he was getting into. He pandered to his fans but he still had some amount of physical distance. With this he doesn't. And they are flying in from everywhere else to see the play and get a glimpse of him. Hence, there will probably be more pics of him out in public while the play is still going on. I kind of feel sorry for the guy.

I don't understand why it is so damn impossible to keep a thread about Coriolanus and his work in this play from becoming such a clusterfuck every single time.

I agree with everything you have said. And I hope that the few days' break from the play gives us a break from the fangirl invasion of this thread. I also pray for no creeper pics or vids of TH which will start the whole thing up again. Those DL'ers who see him out and about, you may also want to keep any sightings to yourselves for a bit too!

R469/R509 here again. You're welcome and you are correct on all counts. As for why it's so impossible to fall off the cliff & into a clusterfuck, well THAT discussion could easily fill up several threads, LOL!

Short answer: Thanks to Loki, the Internet and his constant pandering, singing & dancing, Hiddles is the annoited Internet "IT" heart throb of the hour. At some point it will die down as it did for Elvis, the Beatles, Springsteen, Brad Pitt etc. but right now TH is "it" to a small albeit vocal slice of rabid fangirls/fanboys (e.g. Josh Horowitz.

I will also be interested to hear from DLers how they feel Josie Rourke's decision to make Coriolanus more of a martyr vs. Ralph Fiennes movie portrayal of him as a straight up brutal warrior.

BTW his pandering, dancing, piggyback rides and Tweets however ill-advised in no way excuses the intrusive or stalker behavior of a small slice of fans. Because R501 is right: legitimate theatre fans just want to be able to go and see Coriolanus w/o fear of being trampled, having their view obscured or having the actors voices drowned out by pubescent titterings.

I just got tickets to see Kenneth Branagh in Macbeth in NYC in May. Thank God, all the drama will be confined to the stage!

Since the thread title is about the Thor movie, can we talk about that a bit? Anyone notice the change in costuming between the first Marvel movie, which was pre-Disney, and the second post-Disney takeover one? It's like they woke up to the fact that the first movie had a bunch of hot men parading around in skin tight leather pants. Idris Elba goes from tight brown leather pants (although he did hold a sword in front of himself a lot) to wearing a peplum skirt thing over those tight brown pants in the second one. Hemsworth gets a loin cloth. And Hiddleston, whose costume went from tight green pants in Thor to a long tunic and coat in Avengers, is never shown full frontal in Thor2 unless he's got something in front of him, like his own shackled hands, a book, a spaceship dashboard, or Natalie Portman.

And on the topic of Hiddleston, I think it would be great to see him do more Shakespeare, or just more theatre in general. It seems to be a good fit for him and would give him more credibility than just being the guy who played Loki.

Greetings, R545 -- I'm R539 and also a paying DL member. I mentioned upthread I'd love to see a London theatre thread and compare & contrast London and Broadway productions. I also live Stateside and have got tickets to see Kenneth Branagh and Alex Kingston this spring in Macbeth at the Park Ave. Armory in NYC and can't wait. Should be good. Love London theatre as well.

ITA, Hiddleston would make a great Hamlet. BTW, funny bit of trivia the 19th century American stage actor Edwin Booth who played Hamlet in 1870 bears a striking resemblance to Hiddleston. Edwin Booth was the older brother of John Wilkes Booth who assassinated Abraham Lincoln.

I just had a funny thought: Hiddles is getting great reviews for playing Coriolanus onstage but IRL would anyone follow him into battle? OTOH, I can't imagine Chris Hemsworth tackling Coriolanus onstage but he'd be very believable as a military guy IRL and have no trouble attracting followers.

R541 No it won't because TH isn't a newcomer. By now in Hollywood they know he can act, either that or these past 4 years were a big waste of time. Hamlet can help him bettering his acting (as in any profession practice can only be good) and establish him more as a theatre actor, but it won't bring him higher status in Hollywood.

R556 True true. Maybe something interesting will come up when the show starts again, or maybe that person who sees him every now and again will come back.

by Anonymousreply 55712/25/2013

R542 is right, and if we had yet another tiresome interview with TH on our hands in which he dropped one of his clueless statements about "love your life," and the unfair pressures of being posh, I would say hammer away on that posh puppy.

This is old news though. Right now, he is doing a laudable job with Coriolanus, and that's something new to talk about. I love the idea of expanding this into a new thread about British theatre in general. There are so many other good performances to discuss.

My opinion is that Coriolanus will have no effect at all on his standing in Hollywood, where, despite the success as Loki, he seems to have struck out. They are just not casting him in anything. Coriolanus could open up all kinds of possibilities in British theatre, film, and television, though, and if he is smart he would focus on that.

I don't see him performing Hamlet. Cumberbatch is about to do that at the National, and the last thing TH needs is yet more reason to be compared unfavorably to the Batch. Time magazine had both of them competing for the title of Most Overrated Celebrity.

I think TH's strength is as a character actor and ensemble actor. More roles that would develop him in this direction would serve him well. I realize he is a Shakespeare fanboy, but it would be wonderful to see him take on a contemporary play, in a role that is NOT "noble," or posh in any way. He's doing well right now, but so far everything he touches is the same sort of role. It makes me doubt his emotional range.

by Anonymousreply 55812/25/2013

R554, I think everyone is hibernating for the holidays, which is probably a good idea. I really hope the Donmar finds a way to curtail some of the stage door frenzy. It's ridiculous, and from what I have heard, the same repeat stalkers are the bulk of the problem.

I'm curious to hear more from the two DLers who live in the NW3 area. It's always fun to hear from people who know what they are talking about. I'm wondering if the cafe they are talking about is that well known pub that is right on Haverstock Hill, more or less next door to TH's place. (Probably not - I don't think they serve breakfast?)

I thought princess unicorn and the fangirl in the cafe were different people. Have I missed a hint?

I also think he could have an amazing stage career if he wanted and he's at the point where he can pursue stage roles/projects that he wants, like BC doing Hamlet next year. He can't do that with movies. He can't get projects off the ground on name alone whereas he probably could with theatre.

I have heard that there are a number of fans who stalk TH in the cafe and in his neighborhood. It is no secret where he likes to hang out. A woman named Sarah Rappaport from Twitter is known for following him around, as well as other with other Belsize celebrities.

Apparently TH is getting sassy with the fangirls, according to someone who posted some tips on the stage door, the Donmar has apparently tried to implement a no photos policy:

"Tom actually got quite sarcastic with one fan who just took a picture right in his face and he said to her, ‘No photos! Oh - you’re taking one anyway are you? OKaaaaay’. *shakes head* "

"They ask for play tickets now to have a place in the stage door queue - too many trophy hunter fans without tickets were just turning up and wanting photos. They now go to the back of the queue, and as my friends observed last week - Tom was dismissive of those who hadn’t seen the play. The first thing he asked most people was, ‘what did you think of the play?’ and those who said they hadn’t seen it were ushered away"

Not sure if any of this is true, maybe the pressure's getting to him?

I would not believe any rumors about upcoming projects until LW issues a press release and it appears on his imdb. Trust me, if there were any truth to this, He would be tweeting and name-dropping from the rooftops.

R578 Agree with you that if rumours are true, LW would be making it more public. And I have noticed that the tweeting has dwindled by quite a bit. TH looks like he's finally setting boundaries. It could be because of the recent stalking and video-taking.

Really screwed up to follow a guy around like that I feel. Don't think the locals would care much cos they are not the ones being filmed/stalked. And there are always a few crazies around as well.... not just TH fans, but any other celeb's fans may be inclined to do the same.
