I’ve added HD screencaptures from the latest Thor movie. Enjoy them in our gallery!!

Catch all the deleted scenes along with behind-the-scenes featurettes and more when “Thor: The Dark World” hits Digital 3D and Digital HD February 4 and 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD February 25!
Everyone. Please prepare your Tom Hiddleston reaction gifs now. Rumors are flying that the soon-to-be released Thor 2: The Dark World DVD will contain a mini-movie centered around Loki called All Hail the King.
When you are done screaming and freaking out and explaining what’s going on to your loved ones who’ve just burst into the room to make sure you’re alright, sit down and read this (WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE THOR SEQUEL YET. SERIOUSLY. LOTS OF THEM. STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET AND DON’T WANT THE ENDING RUINED):
A title like “All Hail the King,” in connection with “Thor: The Dark World,” can really only mean one thing: Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is involved. When the “Thor” sequel ended, everyone in Asgard assumed Thor’s trickster brother to be dead, killed in battle against the vicious Malekith the Accursed. That’s not what happened, of course. Loki faked his own death, stole his way back to Asgard, and somehow usurped the throne from his adoptive father, Odin. By the end of “Dark World,” Loki wore both Odin’s face and Asgard’s crown, with the fate of the true Odin left up to the viewer’s imagination.
So, fresh off his triumphant victory as the real for real really Sexiest Man Alive, Hiddleston is also about to dominate all the DVDs. Fantastic. MTV also says that the mini-movie could help Marvel soothe the demand fans currently have for a Loki-centered movie; an online petition called “Free Loki” calling for a film devoted to everyone’s favorite movie villain already has more than 50,000 signatures. Wow. My petition calling for the British government to rename their nation “Hiddlestonia” and make me their queen only has one lousy signature, which is total bullshit.
We’ll know more about All Hail The King when Thor 2: The Dark World is released on Feb. 25. See, now aren’t y’all glad I successfully petitioned the editorial board at Jezebel to assign me to the prestigious Hiddleston beat so you can be aware of these awesome things?
Tom Hiddleton wants to do more comedy acting.
The actor, who rose to fame in the United States with his role in Steven Spielberg’s 2011 war drama film “War Horse,” has appeared in comedy projects before — he starred in the UK crime comedy series “Suburban Shootout” in 2006 and 2007 and in the celebrity-packed “Stars in Shorts” project in 2012. He also played F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s romantic fantasy comedy film “Midnight In Paris.”
“I’ve always wanted to do more comedy,” Hiddleston told OTRC.com. “As a child, I started acting because I loved making people laugh. The first things I ever did were comedies and then I suppose when I left drama school in London, I fell into drama. I went and did Shakespeare and I guess that’s where I landed.”
About that “adult” Guillermo del Toro film …
Hiddleston is set to appear in del Toro’s horror movie “Crimson Peak,” which is scheduled to be released in 2015.
“It’s a gothic romance, it’s a horror film, it’s very adult with Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska. I have not done that yet and you talk about comedy and it’s something that I’ve really like, I’ve been sending out many subliminal messages a lot and I hope that someone finds the message in a bottle and I get to do more of that.”
On not playing the main villain in “Thor: The Dark World” …
“In a way, I’m relieved, in this film from being the villain because Chris Eccleston does such a great job as the big bad and so it leaves me more freedom to be unpredictable and like the loose cannon, I guess.”
On his role in the new “Muppets” film …
“I have a very tiny part in the ‘Muppets’ movie and that was fun. That’s not a serious film. I’ve shared screen time with Mr. Kermit the Frog and I’ve probably peaked and it’s all downhill from here.”
His favorite superhero as a child …
While talking about children’s fascination with the comic book and superhero genre, Hiddleston told OTRC.com: “I remember as a kid myself, I will never forget it, watching Christopher Reeve as Superman and not just me, and I became an actor but my friends who are now lawyers and teachers and architects and art dealers … all of us at that age were compelled by Superman the myth, the mythology, that the idea of a superhero, good and evil.”
“And I think that’s what it is — I think children have such huge imaginations and these films play into that,” he said. “They want to believe in space and spaceships and gods and monsters and heroes and villains. And I think, I hope, there’s still a kid in everybody, that you can tap into that and enjoy the film.”
A new still came out with Jane (Natalie Portman) and Loki (Tom).
