Marvel fans would all agree that Chris Hemsworth makes a wonderful Thor, but could you imagine another actor in the role? Hey, Tom Hiddleston?

Hiddleston himself certainly could, as the Loki star revealed upon recalling the moment he found out he had been chosen as the God of Mischief alongside Hemsworth’s God of Thunder.

“There was, at one point, a board in the stunt gymnasium,” he said. “There was like a 1,000 yard thing on the rower, 100 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 100 squats and doing it for time.”

Rather than rushing at the thought of so much physical activity, Tom thought he was going to try the streak. “Chris Hemsworth took his time on the board and I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll give it a try.’ I didn’t go over 15 pull-ups. “

“So that’s why he was chosen to play as Thor,” added Tom, proving that it’s all in the biceps when it comes to wielding Mjölnir.

Speaking of Thor and Loki, Marvel director Taika Waititi explained how the upcoming sequel, Love and Thunder, will be different from Ragnarok. “It’s crazier,” he confirmed.

“I’ll tell you what’s different. There will be a lot more emotion in this movie. And a lot more love. And a lot more thunder – and a lot more Thor, if you’ve seen the pictures.”

Thor: Love and Thunder has a release date of May 6, 2022.
