Do you think Thor is a bad movie?

I think it's really lame. Thoughts?

by Anonymousreply 60011/04/2013

Bad, terribly directed and written with some awful acting.

by Anonymousreply 808/07/2013

Loki is the best thing about it. And the Asgard visuals. Of course, even the Aengers was grat because of Loki but even without him it was a better movie than Thor. Looking forward to the Dark World.

by Anonymousreply 908/07/2013

Yes.

by Anonymousreply 1008/07/2013

The depiction of Asgard was the best thing about it. I like how they used Jack Kirby's "sci-fi" version rather than the "castles and longhouses" filled city that Marvel has been using since 1980 on up. Bifrost as a transporter rather than a solid rainbow was also a cool touch. I also loved the depiction of the "9 worlds" as actual planetoids. The Asgardians of the films truly were extra-dimensional aliens and not traditional deities.

Here we go, my chickadees.... I have to say I love the giant hammer.

So will Loki hit it out of the park? Will it make as much as they expect? Are we teetering on the brink? Will Hiddleconda make its inevitable appearance?

Hey, is that Jane Arthy hiding behind the hammer waiting for her chance to lunge?

Hemsworth has confirmed that he is signed up for two more Avenger's films, and Thor 3, tentatively entitled "Ragnarok's Return." Intriguing title. We may see yet more Loki bondage.

Luke might not be the best publicist in the world but he’s not that stupid. If you arrange such kind of set up (to cover whatever rumours) that amateurishly it will be a fail, not an advantage. Remember Cavill/Cuoco?

To ask a woman who desperately wants to get this man to cover him in public when you know that this man (and your major client) doesn’t want this woman for anything but a hook-up? It’s madness. And then the next day that Daily Fail set up? What for?

And how many of his stans believed it? As for the DM article - you mean the Lara Pulver pics - I don't think they were planned.

R192 Agreeing an all points. If following a few of the same accounts on Twitter makes you a stalker then I'm stalking about 20 people, incl Ricky Gervais. And the story about her bragging to her work colleagues, that was from this site, and the poster was called out as a troll.

"2.) Don't you think it is a little teensy bit ironic that you say she is a crazy stalker on Twitter... and yet it is YOU who feverishly tracks everyone she follows and keeps track of her every post and deletion? THAT to me sounds like crazy stalker shit."

THIS.

The idea that an attractive young woman who works in PUBLICITY for a major record label to attend the Wimbledon men's final with a notably single young actor who appears in gossip columns and think she is not going to be photographed and talked about is absurd.

She is no babe in the woods. She knows how the game is played. This was the Ralph Lauren box at the Wimbledon final with Tom Hiddleston. Actor. Who courts publicity to get work. And probably doesn't like the gay rumors.

Wanting more from the relationship and disagreeing about it makes absolute sense. But outrage at being put on display with your actor boyfriend at the Wimbledon men's final? Give her some credit. She is a publicist in her own right!

Still wondering why Marvel/Disney have done such a slipshod job of promoting this movie. TH has been the only one acting like a "circus bear" (in his own words). CH has been absent for most of it until the last week and none of second tier actors with the exception of Kat Dennings and Stellan Skarsgard were in London. Very strange.

Except for the TH, who is indeed a circus bear willing to do anything to please the powers that be, I don't think anyone involved is enthusiastic.

Alan Taylor is particularly unhappy, and, imho, Eccleston was robbed.

How about this radical idea? People don't typically live their lives through Twitter or the tabloids.

The reporter who misspelled TH's name and said JA was his GF? It probably never occurred to her that she wasn't or that this would be be any kind of controversy, because, ya know, outside of Tumblr, it isn't.

So far as I can see, the biggest tea on TH is that he is boring and self-absorbed, doesn't have much of a personal life, and doesn't do well in relationships. I suspect women dump him as often as he is dumped, and there is probably a good reason.

This is what happens when you fall into thinking of yourself as a "brand" to market rather than as an actor with some artistic integrity. I would put it passed him to use a girl to dispel gay rumors (given that he is trying so hard to sell himself to Disney).

From my point of view it's almost impossible to make a "good" superhero movie because by their very nature a superhero story is coming from an immature sensibility. Unless you just love that genre, there's going to be something missing. Even when they try to be more sophisticated and adult, as with "Watchmen" and the "Dark Knight," they're held back by the fact that they're first and foremost about hot bodies in tight suits whose lives are dedicated to doing things that only make sense to eleven-year-olds.

R206, it's a comic book. A popcorn flick based on 'Thor' the comic book.

Hiddleston's promotion of this comic book may strike some as a 'dancing bear' act but it is required. Actors who are A-list and/or already well-established can skive off promo duty. Second leads and those who are trying to gain access to better parts in better movies get out there and work their asses off to promote whatever they are in. Producers, directors, casting directors - they all take note of who gets out there and sells it and who doesn't.

Hiddleston, or whoever is advising him, is making the smart actor's play here. Good for him.

Here's a thimble of tea: Al Ewing the head writer for the upcoming Loki: Agent of Asgard comic books has confirmed that Loki will be bi-sexual and will also use his shape shifting powers to occasionally walk around as a woman. TH said that he'd love to see Jaimie Alexander be the female Loki since in the comics, Loki shifts into Lady Sif.

by Anonymousreply 33410/25/2013

There's no doubt Marvel is rushing to capitalize on the current Loki & squeeze every last dollar and dime out of it before the fickle fans depart. The fastest way to achieve their goal is by pandering to the greatest common denominator: the Tumblr crowd.

Both Hemsworth and Hiddleston have signed contracts to appear in several more of the Marvel films. CH will appear in Avengers 2 and 3 and Thor 3 and TH will at least be in Thor 3. Meanwhile, they have to play ball with the studio. CH has more leverage than Hiddleston since he's been working more steadily. Also, CH the rest of the Avengers cast opted to negotiate for more money as a group after making their displeasure known about their "paltry" salaries. Sooo, CH has managed to get away with not going all-out to promote Thor 2 although he's seemed a bit happier in the most recent spate of interviews. Hiddleston's star has risen along with Loki but it could fall & fade just as quickly since the only movie he currently has coming out in 2014 is OLLA. And that probably won't get widespread release. His best option -- if he wants a visible career -- is to keep smiling and dancing in the hopes he'll snag a role in an A-list movie. From the sounds of it, Guillermo del Torres' Crimson Peak is low budget. His other option is to just walk away and hope one of his low-budget Indy movies is a big hit or concentrate on theatre and TV. No one's offering him the roles that Fassbender, Hardy and Cumberbatch are getting.

R341 No, he looks like somebody who doesn't have much confidence in his own talent, so he would says yes to anything. There's a difference between be professional and promote your work and coming off like a joke.

Because in that interview you could see how Feige was satisfied to have found somebody who doesn't have anything to do other then jump when he says "hop".

The point is Marvel will drop him when they'll be done with him. As I said, other actors promote their movies, they don't go as far as this.

TH gets his flirt on and admits he's a big cheat

by Anonymousreply 34610/26/2013

As with most things, the truth is probably in the middle. Yes, TH is a desperate, try-hard, circus bear. Yes, to many of us, his clearcut ass-kissing ways are really tiresome.

But his willingness to do more than his share of promotion work is not going to offend anyone at Marvel or Disney, and, let's face it, kissing ass and playing politics has gotten him this far. I think he knows that it is not his place to be a diva. It's not anyone's place really- look at what happened to Ed Norton's career as an example.

None of this is going to earn him new roles though, except perhaps in the Pixie Hollow Tinkerbell franchise. Casting will continue to be competitive, and he really isn't proving to be leading man material. The industry cares about it bottom line more than anything else, and directors want actors who are a good fit.

At this stage in his career, he should have offers piling up, but he is not. This speaks volumes.

These next couple of weeks should be the last we see of him for some time, I believe. Thor 2 will be out of theatres and he will be doing that local play in London. He does not have much lined up for 2014- which should please him, as he said he "loves when the calendar is blank! (yeah, right.)

Unless Marvel can pimp out Loki again, giving teenagers piggy back rides and dancing/singing like a trained monkey- or Luke can threaten the fashion magazines to put him in weird photoshoots- he's not going to be setting the world on fire in 2014. His more talented peers will continue to do varied and interesting projects. Hiddleston will still be desperately walking red carpets, going to private screenings, heading to exclusive VIP gatherings- you get the picture. Better lap it up now, while you can. At best, he's a competent ensemble actor. And that's OK, but I believe our boy wants to rule the silver screen- and he simply does not have the talent to do that. He's the campy bad guy in a comic book movie, with a fandom that raves about his penis, hair, smile, body, bondage tendencies- you name it- everything- except his acting ability. They are fickle and will move on to their next object of lust. And THAT is the fandom he's courted. Enjoy Loki whilst you can, Tom.

by Anonymousreply 35710/26/2013

I beg to differ. My thinking is we will be hearing a bit more just as soon as his ravening fan girls descend upon the theater to see the object of their obsession perform Shakespeare, probably for whom more than half, have never even read, let alone have even attended a live play before. (think loud talking and screeching every time TH appears/speaks, some perhaps dressing as Loki since TH touts how Loki is one with the Bard) Their behavior more than likely will garner him some attention in the news. (heavy sarcasm here)

by Anonymousreply 35810/26/2013

Well, OK, there's that, LOL. I am assuming the theatre will handle those, um, people.

There are actual women who live in the US who have purchased tickets, have no money to travel, and are begging their Tumblr readers to donate so they can pay thousands of dollars to watch him perform on another continent.

I can provide links if anyone here would like to financially support this venture...

I would like to think women would conduct themselves better at a theater then screaming or talking during his performance. Most ones I have seen that have been able to get tickets are mostly women not teens. But we will see I guess.

If they are begging for someone to pay for their little adventure, then they are the kind who will be the out of control type, no matter the age. Just by purchasing tickets to see TH without even considering making travel arrangements, smacks of immaturity. Not to mention a bit unstable. They are like those shoppers who wait all night to be the first in line to get the goodies, no matter the cost. LOL No I do not care for any links to pay for their adventure in TH stalking. Yes I know the theater is a different setting, however I still say pandemonium of some sort could occur.

I really wonder if the Coriolanus crowd will make him uncomfortable,because from the looks of it,no actual theater connoisseurs will attend and for someone who wants to perform,having screeching fangirls can get annoying at one point. This isn't Comic con, this is Shakespeare and the mere fact that some of his more mature lady fans now act like they've grown up with Shakespearian books shows just how fanatic they are. Not to mention these travel fundings they are looking for...I sometimes really wonder what their husbands or partners think of this. I wouldn't put up with it

R368 Well, he's known for giving underage female fans full body hugs and piggy back rides. He laps up everything they do for him.

I cannot even imagine how they will behave in a small theatre. I hope it is a wonderful performance. I hope you get to watch a great play, and that those fans will behave- for the sake of the rest of the audience. But his core fandom is more interested in looking at "Loki's Monster Crotch" than anything William Shakespeare has written. Good luck!

This has happened to me before. I tried unsuccessfully to get tickets to a Show where the lead guy had a lot if fangirls. When I did eventually got tickets I then wished I didn't has the majority of the audience was fangirls. They showed no respect for anyone and when the lead actor wasn't on stage they talked or messed about on their phones. The theatre wouldn't kick them out as the fangirls were most of the audience. It was also crazy getting out afterwards. I heard a few weeks later the leading actor issued a stamens staying he would not come out and sign autographs if they kept disrupting the show. As I doubt TH wouldn't issue a similar plee to his fangirls, I suggest people should see the show on the ntl live at the cinema.

by Anonymousreply 37510/27/2013

I'm a bit worried about Coriolanus to be honest. I have tickets and I'd call myself a fan of Tom's, but I'm a fan because of The Hollow Crown rather than Loki and the Marvel films. (I do quite like the Thor film actually, although I still haven't seen The Avengers). I'm going to watch a Shakespeare play with Tom Hiddleston in the lead role. I like Shakespeare generally and I go to see other plays that don't feature TH (or Mark Gatiss) in them. I don't have a problem with women (it is primarily girls/women isn't it?) going along to support their 'favourite actor' - I'm doing the same. What I do have a problem with is the potential for clueless, ignorant or downright rude behaviour to occur. Being (politely) enraptured with TH is one thing, but I'm wondering whether it will be limited to that. Will some of the fangirls be as interested in the non-Hiddleston parts of the play? Or will they treat it as night out at the cinema, complete with talking/mobile phone usage and rustling and fidgeting etc. The atmosphere could be completely ruined.

I saw Tennant's Hamlet. Never again will I book for a play with a famous TV/film lead without checking for online fandoms first.

The Donmar has form for this. It's a USP for what is a tiny, "off Broadway", kind of theatre.

by Anonymousreply 37710/27/2013

R373: Cultivated them yes, but he must see that as something totally different to his so-so-serious Shakespeare. That's what he truly loves - you don't take on Coriolanus unless you are a hardcore fan of the Bard. If this goes well it will up his kudos immensely and the last thing he needs is for performances to be ruined by little girls. I suspect he would go into the mother of all shit fits - backstage of course - if that happened. This is his big serious moment and any inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated.

I imagine the Donmar has a plan in place to deal with this. I was at a play a few weeks ago in London and some stupid fucking teen girls who had been dragged by their parents just kept playing with their phones. It was infuriating. Luckily the Donmar is very, very small and anything of that type of behaviour will be very obvious to all around and will not be tolerated.

I do worry about him a touch though, a performance most days, twice Saturdays plus all the stage door action every night... It's a lot to take on.

The Domar won't get rid of all the fangirls as it would make the theatre look empty. TH would never tell them off as he loves the attention from them too much. I don't actually see him doing most of the performances, the other actors are already in rehearsals whilst TH is on a one man promotional tour.when Thor tour has finished he'd only have a month. I also doubt his health is in the best shape for this as well.

The Donmar won't get rid of the fangirls because the production has been designed expecting them. It has a long history of designing productions around popular TV and film actors. That's what it does.

R378 I am sure TH is thrilled beyond belief that he can play that role onstage. So are the fans that can go see him live. My thought was, he has already let that demon out of its confines- this fandom he courted. He cannot put it back in. They are his bread and butter at this point- they made him famous. They are going- I've read their squeeing about it. Most are young women in their 20's- with some sort of Loki/Magnus/whatever porn blog. So, yes, they will be in attendance. I can totally see them bored/confused when he's not talking, on their phones, chatting. That's who they are. I don't think it matters at this point how HE feels about it. I am just hopeful that they respect their fellow audiences members and everyone enjoys the show.

PS- I was fortunate to see Ralph Fiennes do Hamlet in 1995. It was off-Broadway, small theatre (The Belasco)- and his fans were VERY well behaved. But, there was no Internet back then, no YouTube, Tumblr or iPhones, so it was another world. I'm wishing all who are going the best of luck. What a joy it is for Shakespeare fans to watch a great live production.

Oh, just thought of this. You will have the *Sherlock* fans there, also. Mycroft is in it! Oh, boy...

After the frenzy that erupted at Hiddleston's ComicCon and Asian PR tour to promote Thor 2, I would be amazed if the Donmar did NOT have a plan in place to deal with the potential for crazed, unruly fans. Security will be very tight the night of the live broadcast in January.

However, I do think there will be at least a few incidents early on. The Donmar AND Hiddleston himself will have deal with this head on. Since the theatre only seats about 250 people, the fans will be very close to him. I hope they have security! It's not just Americans, I've heard of fans planning to travel from Australia and Korea to get close to their idol. I feel for the other actors, the Donmar's security and the local police if they have to hire extra security to ensure that the show goes on and that everyone stays safe.

Several actors on Broadway have stopped their performances to tell people to shut off their cell phones, stop talking and disrupting the performance.

Hiddleston in the past has successfully calmed down squeeing fans when he's been out and about. But he can't do that and perform simultaneously. Best of luck to all of you who have bought tickets with the intention of seeing the play.

by Anonymousreply 38510/27/2013

@R377 I did too, and yes, there were problems. I didn't find it really ruined the experience for me though. The size of the theatre and the number of people in the audience who were well-behaved compensated for the overenthusiastic DT 'squee squad'. I have a feeling the problem might be more acute at the Donmar because of its small size and the fact that a lot of the tickets may very well have been bought up by the 'Loki's Army' contingent. If even 40 or 50% of the audience is made up of silly fangirls who've never been to a Shakespeare play before, well, let's just say I'm not looking forward to that. At all.

@R380 TH would be foolish not to do all or most of the performances, surely? This is another big chance for him to really put himself on the map as a serious classical actor. I should think he'll pour himself into it 110%.

by Anonymousreply 38610/27/2013

Coriolanus is supposed to muscular in the stage notes. TH is anything but. He's also going to be exhausted because he hasn't had a break to recover, he's only human after all. TH hasn't been in stage for nearly over 5 years and back then he was an unknown supporting actor. Now he has the crazy Loki stans and because he hasn't been on stage or rehearsals that long, his health is going to suffer. It doesn't matter if he puts 110% into it, nobody would put a sick actor on

by Anonymousreply 38810/27/2013

R387 If I remember well the producer of Coriolanus has been asking him do play him for a while, so that he only got it because he wasn't busy...Unless you meant that he only accepted because he didn't have any other projects? But again I think I remember him mentioning in a interview (early this year or end of last year?) that he was going through scripts for the theatre because he wanted to go back to stage.

by Anonymousreply 38910/27/2013

Well we can only hope he was rehearsing during those walk abouts he spoke of, where he pretended to be on his phone while practicing his lines. Or maybe his ego is so huge he feels he can do it without rehearsing. It would be such a let down to all who plan on attending if he did not perform all of the shows planned. Is that normal for an actor to let his understudy perform for whatever reason other than health or prior commitments he could not escape from?

I think he said something like "you will be quiet and that's how it's going to be". I don't think you want to mess with him by bothering him at his actual workplace while working. The public appearances are one thing and they are meant to be for the public's satisfaction but I'm sure he won't be as jolly if you mess with Shakespeare

I have to agree with a number of people here who have pointed out that Donmar is not West End, nor is it known for its originality or quality. It is second-tier all the way.

It's business plan has been, for a long time now, to capitalize on fandom to sell their tickets. It is all about ticket sales, nothing else. This was what they did with Ewan McGregor, and it worked. All the Othello tickets were scooped up by the Star Wars fandom. It was a pretty tepid production, but the audience wasn't that sophisticated anyway, so everyone was happy.

One thing I can assure though is that they are old hands at controlling the audience. Pulling out a cellphone during a performance is incredibly rude, and they will confiscate phones if they have to. Their loyalty to fans pretty much stops with the tickets sale.

McGregor complained constantly about the fans btw. He flat out refused to sign anything Star Wars related. TH will probably milk it for all its worth though because he really is a performing circus bear.

I have my doubts about his take on Coriolanus. The fans won't care, but I just don't think he has a strong enough presence.

Also: If there is one thing TH does NOT do, it is shit where he eats.

He will behave impeccably back stage, kiss up to everyone and anyone with power, manage perceptions, and be very, very careful with fans. He is expert at this. I am sure he took Brownnosing 101 at Eton, and was no doubt first in his class.

The real test will be to see if he can do all of that and actually act and get past his usual campy performance standard. Coriolanus is a bit more difficult than Cassio (a part which can rely a lot on surface charm and the fact that he is in so many ways a real life Cassio).

R421 Have you ever acted or taken an acting class? You find the character by looking within yourself and examining your own emotions. So yeah, it actually does involve self-discovery.

Where it backfires for so many actors though is that it does not necessarily lead to transcendence or wisdom. Self-discovery too often becomes self-absorption, immaturity, and narcissism. It's a rare actor who can spend all day everyday thinking about himself, his emotions, his body, how he looks to others, etc. and not turn into a boring douchenozzle.

The reviews for Thor 2 -- as well as Hiddleston's and Hemsworth's performances -- have been generally positive. It will be interesting to see how it does in the first full week of release. I'm surprised that we here in the U.S. are the last to see it.

It appears as though Marvel/Disney have already green-lighted Thor 3 (unless Thor 2 performs miserably)so Hiddleston will get to play Loki for a fourth time, although probably not for another two to three years.

Even the positive reviews I have seen have a lot of serious reservations. Shallow plot, written by a committee, superficial, thinly written villain, will probably please only 13 year old boys, etc. That is about as good as it gets. This is not a critical hit by any stretch of the imagination.

Hiddleston is the stand out performance, but let's face it, this is a two-dimensional character well suited for his campy, scenery-chewing style. He has not proven himself to be an outstanding actor with Loki, but rather the one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind.

Who did he tweet? I cannot be bothered to look, sorry. Just a question: do you really think that every woman he tweets or follows has to be a love interest? This is the 21st Century last time I checked.

Frank Langella is about to play King Lear on the West End by the way. Sorry fan girls, this leaves the Hiddles and Donmar completely in the dust. There is acting, and then there is REAL acting, the real thing.

by Anonymousreply 44110/29/2013

Langella is a thousand times pervier than Hiddleston will ever be.

[quote]Casting will continue to be competitive, and he really isn't proving to be leading man material. The industry cares about it bottom line more than anything else, and directors want actors who are a good fit.

Once Kevin Bacon realized he wouldn't be cast as the romantic lead, he became a hugely successful character actor. He's much more prominent and more often employed than several former romantic leads I can think of.

by Anonymousreply 44210/29/2013

R442 I LOVE Kevin Bacon. He has a real flair for comedy. He was hysterical in Tremors and he also did a great comedic turn appearing as himself in an episode of Will and Grace where Sean Hayes' character Jack was stalking him and got a job as his PA!

KB also has dramatic acting chops. See Apollo 13 and Mystic River to name just two.

R436 Thor may not be a critical hit but the real barometer as far as the suits are concerned is how much money it makes. If it does well, TH will get to play Loki again in a few years.

by Anonymousreply 44310/29/2013

Yeah sure, Loki. So what? He is well on his way to being a one trick pony. Is that truly what he aspires to be? It's just sad.

KB is AMAZING. I have loved him in so many things. And please just what is wrong with being a very talented character actor? Langella gave an interview recently in which he said it was a gift to finally change gears.

"Langella is a thousand times pervier than Hiddleston will ever be."

Hahahaha! No kidding! And I love him for that. Truth be told, Hiddles is pretty tepid on all levels. His fans try as hard as he does, but at the end of the day he is just too self-conscious, too inhibited, too bound by his desperation to please. Too many Daddy issues. He should take a page from the Langella book and cut loose.

by Anonymousreply 44410/29/2013

R444 I just got finished watching Frank Langella's 1979 version of "Dracula" on cable. Hot, hot, hot!

I agree with you about character actors. They are the backbone of the business and every bit as good as the leads and very versatile. Stanley Tucci and Chris Cooper are two of my favorites.

I do think of Kevin Bacon as more of a second tier leading actor rather than a character actor, although it's true he's not the romantic lead.

As for Hiddleston, how is he a sell-out by playing Loki? If that's the case he's in very good company with Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, RDJ, Chris Evans etc., etc. It's not like he isn't trying to get other parts. And no, Coriolanus at the Donmar doesn't compare to Langella/King Lear in the West End but at least he's doing something. 2014 will be a pivotal year for Hiddleston, though. He needs to land roles besides Marvel and indies.

Loki dies, but then comes back to life and takes on the form of Odin. Yes, even a spear through the heart cannot kill this franchise.

Anyone who thought Thor: The Dark world was a Loki-centric movie needs to step away from their Tumblr blog. He's barely in it. Marvel-the-Money-Making-Machine-Movie-Guys thought they could eek out a couple more $ from the fangirls by baiting them. Hiddleston- with no apparent work- was more than willing to cart his campy ass around the planet to sell Loki. He was supposed to "break out" after Thor. 2011 was supposed to make him a star. Then, it was 2012- after The Avengers- that was going to be his meal ticket. 2013 was rather a slow year for work (unless you count having your picture taken) for him. 2014 doesn't sound like he's got much lined up, either. Face it. He's got Loki- that's about it. This publicity tour was his swan song, of sorts. If he was the most incredibly talented actor on the earth- he'd be in demand. He's not. Sorry.

by Anonymousreply 46110/31/2013

I haven't seen the movie yet and while I didn't think it was a Loki centric movie, from the way they presented it, trailers, promotional tour etc., it seemed he had a lot of space compared to Malekith. But you guys are telling me you hardly see him. Makes this promotion even stranger.

So, yeah, I thought it was really uneven and choppy. There were more jokes than I was expecting, but they often came at the expense of story. I mean, did we really need a jokey scene immediately after Rene Russo's death?

by Anonymousreply 46410/31/2013

It lost its funding, and both the director and the leaf actress immediately signed onto other projects. It won't be made. TH has lost a number of projects this past year: King of Soho, Dark Wings Has my Angel, and Close Enough aren't being made; and The Crow is one of about a dozen films he auditioned for which went to someone else. Crimson Oeak is a lucky break, but even there he was second choice. He has been "working," just not actually getting work.

Oh and little girls, no they did not bring Loki back to life just for you. If you reads the myths and/or the comic books, Ragnarok is a part of the story, and Loki sets it in motion. I am sure that Marvel and TH will find a way to make even Armageddon campy and jokey though. Maybe Loki will slip on a banana peel.

by Anonymousreply 46710/31/2013

It seems fairly clear he's having problems getting cast. Even Crimson Peak is just a supporting role. Coriolanus is at a second tier theatre. I don't see how he can try any harder without making himself even more annoying and desperate-looking than he already is, so I think the fans should start looking for a new object of desire.

by Anonymousreply 46810/31/2013

Coriolanus is a good thing, yes the theatre is second tier, but the play is challenging so, as far as the theatre that should do him good.

Crimson Peak, I hope Del Toro will do a good job (Pacific Rim was a bit of a let down in term of story and dialogues) but yes it's a supporting role and from the few infos, TH and JC should be the haunting presences in the house.

I understand not wanting spoilers.

What I don't support is expecting online discussions and reviews of the film to avoid spoilers for your sake. Grown up and take responsibility for your own experience.

I haven't seen the movie yet and probably won't until it comes out on Netflix (I don't think this is going to be worth the $12).

From what I heard though, Marvel threw Eccleston's character under the buss in favor of more of TH's clowning around, all for the sake of milking the fan girls for all they are worth, and that the Joss Whedon dialog is pretty canned, jokey, and predictable.

Verdict: Marvel only cares about box office, and especially making that 75million mark on opening weekend (a figure that is deliberately low because they cannot risk have Thor 2 seem anything but a success).

If TH's goal as an actor is to continue being Loki, then yeah, I would say he sold out. Sounds like a waste of RADA. But then maybe he knows he is not a great talent. Marvel and licensing deals will at least pay his mortgage. Lame.

R501 Actually given how CH was MIA except for the last week or so in promoting Thor 2, I don't think he deserves a lot of accolades. His acting has gotten better since the first Thor but Daniel Day-Lewis, George Clooney, Michael Fassbender have nothing to worry about! IMO, Hiddleston acts rings around him.

CH has been snagging a lot of roles but outside of the Marvel MCU most of his movies are flops. "Rush" stalled at the box office in the US; I'm not sure how it's fared in Europe but I don't think it's racking up great numbers.

E.g. Eccleston was interviewed in the Shortlist today and here's an excerpt "What made you want to do Thor 2, then?: "As an actor of my age, you do these films to make money and to heighten your profile. Any actor who says any different, I would question." and also

"But now you’re part of the Marvel universe, you’re going to receive crazy fanmail and have to go to Comic Con, right?

After next week he'll have to buckle down with rehearsals, there's 4 weeks until it opens. If he's seen out at the opening of an envelope it definitely won't look good. He's known to put in the work, so it will tell in the reviews.

I have a ticket for Coriolanus in the preview week which I'm thinking of trying to sell, as I have a feeling the production will be invaded by stans and be embarrassing throughout, which is a shame because the rest of the cast looks great.

by Anonymousreply 53011/01/2013

He does truly love Shakespeare and puts his heart into it. I don't think there is any hot air there. I have my doubts about his ability to carry Coriolanus (if he pulls a weepy Coriolanus, as some earlier pictures indicated, I will hurl) but we will see.

As for the rehearsal schedule, I am sure that this was worked out well in advance with the director and the rest of the cast, and, unless he is senseless, he has been doing his homework. He does work very hard.

In so many other areas, though, yeah, I think he he lays it on thick, kissing up to fans and journalists, playing the game, right down to the learned at Eton nobelesse oblige which is so patronizing.

I find this very tiresome and cynical. He is like that oily little teacher's pet you always hated in grade school. Ugh.

by Anonymousreply 53111/01/2013

He will definitely put the work in for Coriolanus. There's no question of that, but I hope at least one of his team I looking out or his health rather than just counting their money. All thise tours, flights, appaearances - he must be exhausted and it isn't sustainable.

lol at the interviewer for saying this

[quote] There’s another reason why Hiddleston may not return to the Marvel: roles are coming his way faster than a Loki-motive.

But TH's description of his dancing is funny. [quote] “It’s organised flailing,” he grins. ”I didn’t learn any steps, I didn’t train - that’s my misspent youth in the 1990s

by Anonymousreply 53311/01/2013

I don't think there's anything to fear with respect to Hiddleston being prepared to play Coriolanus in terms of knowing his lines, the character, motivation etc. He has a reputation for hard work and many of his costars from Samuel L. Jackson to Julie Walters (in the Hollow Crown) commented on how he's always prepared in terms of knowing his lines and getting the delivery down pat.

From a physical standpoint though, I agree, he can't keep up the current pace of jetting around the world to promote Thor 2 AND do six or seven nights a week on stage. This should be the last week of the Thor promotions though and then he can put in a solid month of rehearsals for Coriolanus. At some point though he needs a break or he'll collapse.

And yeah, Hiddleston has been trying to put it about to reporters that he may not be able to return as Loki because he's so busy. Truth is, he's got Coriolanus, a supporting role in Crimson Peak and the voice over for the Pixie Fairy movie and that's it. The Capa movie is in limbo and he's already completed OLLA and his cameo in the Muppets movie. He can live off the PR from Thor/Loki for a few months and then it's back to reality unless he snags a big role.

He needs to get good reviews for Coriolanus.

Roles are coming at him? Really? What roles?

by Anonymousreply 53511/01/2013

In the nicest possible way, no one knows what's coming his way until it's announced so who knows. He's tied up till Feb with Coriolanus, then March with Crimsom, then hopefully he has some time off but you never know what's being discussed.

by Anonymousreply 53711/01/2013

He's lying! We all know he was on tumblr during the rush premier because a STan took a picture from behind him doing it. I don't think he is what he makes out to be at all.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. TH seems to 'reinvent' himself whenever someone with a microphone is in his face. Even thought CH and BC are not great actors, they do have work coming their way.

by Anonymousreply 53911/01/2013

R538 I always thought he was checking twitter, during that Rush première pic. Still, in another interview for Thor, the one with the silly guessing game I think, he said he doesn't too much. so yeah, different answers.

by Anonymousreply 54011/01/2013

He was photographed looking at his Tumblr dashboard. He has also complained about what people have had to say about him online. Though this is not conclusive evidence, he or his PR team also seem to be highly aware of what fans talk about and what talking points do not make him look very good. So I don't buy this at all.

R436, if he were receiving actual offers, or even near offers, you had better believe his PR would be public about it and create buzz. It is as important in this biz to seem to be in demand as it is to actually be in demand.

If he is auditioning or competing with other actors, however, they are always going to be very quiet about it so as not to repeat the embarrassment with The Crow where he actively and doggedly auditioned and even got to the makeup test stage, then lost out to another actor. That was a lot of egg on his face. He cannot afford to look like an also ran. They have to be able to say that he turned the part down or wasn't interested.

The fact is, aside from a supporting role in Crimson Peak, he has no film work coming up. Meanwhile his contemporaries are booking well into next year and are actually are turning down roles.

The link to Loki with children was, I have to say, really sweet. This man should do a kid's comedy someday, something better than Pixie Hollow. It would suit him well. Given that he is totally in Disney's pocket, that will probably happen.

LMAO at his fans. They actually think he boarded a plane in London, and- on a whim- flew to NYC to meet with underprivileged kids.

Oh my.

Are they completely unaware that Marvel has him shoving Loki down our throats? That was a PLANNED MEDIA EVENT. This man does NOTHING without cameras following him. "Oh! He's sooooo sweet! He met up with those poor kids! He surprised them at the movies! Awww! He'll make a great Dad! He should work with children!" It was a publicity stunt, as is everything he does. Really. Are people that stupid?

by Anonymousreply 56811/01/2013

The Bleeding Cool crew got the jump on the news, but Forbes blogger Mark Hughes apparently spoke with Jaimie Alexander during the Comikaze Expo today and received quite an intriguing bit of news from the Thor: The Dark World actress. While Alexander has previously teased a big future for her Goddess of War, Lady Sif, Jaimie now "confirms" that another Thor installment is happening. But that's not the big news. It seems the 29-year-old actress is in talks for another comic book movie outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. "Jaimie Alexander has been having "conversations" w/ WB/DC," read Hughes' tweet. "She also knows things a/b BATMAN VS SUPERMAN's story."

Jaimie Alexander has been considered a longtime fan-favorite for DC's Wonder Woman, who's rumored to join Batman Vs. Superman. And the actress has even went on record expressing her hopes for a "modern" take on the Amazon Princess. Of course, she could be talking with the studio about another role, and surely there other actresses in contention. But, if these "conversations" that she's having with Warner Brothers become negotiations, she'd aptly join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne in the Zack Snyder-directed adaptation.

R568 who would think he flew specifically for that event? He was on his way to Thor2 première in LA and a show over there and he was supposed to be on GoodMorningAmerica. But, it's nice that he made himself available for an event for children.

by Anonymousreply 57811/02/2013

That children's event was for a good cause but it wasn't 'full house' which Tom and co made it out to be. It was an outing for the kids and I don't think most of them would be that bothered if TH turned up or not. The ones which are real Thor fans would almost certainly be disappointed that he wasn't dressed as Loki (think crying kid and RDJ) TH didn't even stay for the whole screening, he said his piece, had a few photos taken with the kids and left. I have noticed that he sort of mentioning the real charity workers in UNICEF. There was an uproar on tumblr that he takes credit for other people's work

by Anonymousreply 57911/02/2013

R579, amid all the predictable gushing from fans, I hope someone noticed how opportunistic this is. Perhaps it will lead to more Pixie Hollow scripts?

by Anonymousreply 58011/02/2013

Yes, it was a staged PR event and yes, it's a stopover to the LA premiere of Thor 2 and yes, he gets brownie points with the producers. It was still nice of Hiddleston to show up and be genuinely nice to the kids while he was there. Ironically, this group of kids didn't seem all that obsessed with him since he wasn't in costume.

The rest of the cast isn't exactly killing themselves to promote the movie. CH only got onboard the promotion train in the last week or so for the red carpet events. I think Anthony Hopkins has only made one or two appearances and those were in his hometown of LA. Regardless of whether or not Thor 2 is a big, hot mess these actors were paid a lot of money.

by Anonymousreply 58111/02/2013

I watched Thor. I don't remember much except for the blonde guy and Natalie Portman. Kinda wish they had made her a superhero instead, like Scarlet Witch or something like that...she's very sexy to me. The character of Loki didn't even register on my radar.

R582 Yes, his contract calls for him to promote Loki at major events. His appearance at the NY Daily News Childrens' Charity event sounds as though it was a last minute addition and he could probably have said "No."

To his credit, TH did do the event and was pleasant. There have been times when CH looked less than enthusiastic when promoting Thor. Many actors show up, behave badly and act ticked off. Case in point:Kevin Kline, Robert DeNiro and Michael Douglas when they showed up to promote their movie "Las Vegas" on the Today show this week.

by Anonymousreply 58611/02/2013

To be honest, I wouldn't mind him be Bond and can actually envision him quite well. He is more Pierce Brosnan than Daniel Craig and that is wonderful as Craig just looks like an obnoxious bull on steroids. He is just all round unimpressive and lacks class and whenever I see a man pout his lips , like he does,it makes me want to hit him. Whatever you may say, Tom has that classical noble look (and please let's not start with the elitism again) and if he bulks up, he could pull it off.

As for the kids event, whatever the reason and whatever the event he seems to be genuinely friendly to people and that's a major plus point

by Anonymousreply 58711/02/2013

Craig is signed up for Bond till 2017. Honestly, if in 2017 people are still in want of Bond movies there's something very wrong with people taste. In the same we don't need yet another Robin Hood movie, we could do without Bond for a long while.

They're fangirls who don't like to be labeled as such and so do their fangirl business away from the usual fangirl haunts, thinking it makes their stalking less fangirly.

They invade a gay site to discuss things like 'privilege' and 'elitism' with absolutely no irony or self-awareness whatsoever.
