You may already have seen this, but frankly we’d be remiss in our duties as a blog for Americans that like British stuff if we didn’t flag up a moment where one of the most diabolically British villains of recent years dresses up as an all-American icon. Plus it’s Tom Hiddleston! You love him! We love him! etc!

So, this is a deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World, and as ever, Loki is in a playful mood, using his powers to change his appearance, and have a pop at his scowling brother’s new friends too.

Now, in the movie version, this scene was a chance to get Chris Evans in and do his full Captain America bit as a cameo, but it was originally filmed with Tom in the costume.

Tom explained tod MTV: ‘They brought the Captain America costume on set, and I got in it and did an impression of Loki in a Captain America costume. I did the whole performance.

‘Then they showed Chris [Evans] my performance on tape, and he went and did an impression of me doing an impression of him. It was brilliant. It’ll be there as a DVD extra.”

And indeed it is.
