Loki Does Shakespeare

Good timing for me - just saw The Avengers last night.  Normally it's the good guys - Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo - that get all the press.  But if I say the name Tom Hiddleston would you know who I meant?

Well, trick question, I gave it away in the subject line ;).  Having just wrapped Henry IV for an upcoming BBC release, check out Loki himself giving us something the audience is more likely to recognize, a little Henry V.   Hiddleston plays Hal, alongside such names as Jeremy Irons and John Hurt.  Should be a good one!

Saw this on Tumblr yesterday and my little fangirl heart about died of happiness. ;)

Hi Duane,

I bet you enjoyed the Robert Downey Jnr/Iron Man "Shakespeare in the Park" mocking of Thor's outfit...but my favourite dialogue
was The Hulk's two-word reply to Loki's invective.
