Tom Hiddleston Hints at “The Avengers” Script

As anyone who’s been following the ever-growing excitement surrounding Joss Whedon’s The Avengers well knows, the nitty-gritty details of the film are hard to come by these days. Aside from the film’s superstar cast, and the fact that filming began last week, there hasn’t been too much to report.

Recently, MTV News managed to get a few teasers from Tom Hiddleston during the Thor press day over the weekend, we’ve gained some serious “Avengers” insight — from the security measures taken with the scripts, to who will likely be playing the sole villain in the film.

“It’s like ‘Mission: Impossible,’ ” Hiddleston joked about receiving the script. “It was delivered to me at my flat in London, and I sat down and I read it and my mind exploded,” he said. “It is so good and so fun, and so huge, what Joss Whedon has already done, that screenplay is an achievement in itself.”

Hiddleston said that he was so excited when he heard the news — that his mischievous “Thor” character, Loki, would indeed be a part of “Avengers,” he nearly fell off his chair.

“The thing is, you want to call all your friends and tell them, but that’s when the red dot appears on your forehead and your life is over,” he joked of the extreme parameters set to keep the actors from revealing anything. “So, I had to just do a Loki dance in my flat, that’s how it went down.”

With regard to the “tension” that Hiddleston’s onscreen brother Hemsworth (a.k.a. Thor) alluded to, the actor hinted that there will be far more tension between Loki and the Avengers.

“Let’s say it’s going to take more than Loki’s hunky brother to take him down this time,” Hiddleston said with a laugh. “The characters are so different. That’s part of the joy of ‘The Avengers,’ I think,” he said. “You bring all the people, you bring nuclear scientists and gods, and gamma-ray [scientists] and a super soldier from the1940s, so the skill sets are different, and I guess they’re all a match for Loki in different ways.”

We then asked Hiddleston if he felt the eight-against-one odds felt like a lot to take on.

“I guess so, but, you know, he has ways and means,” he said slyly.

“The Avengers” to Film in Cleveland

While states such as Illinois have seen a decline in Hollywood movie production deals that help fill empty hotel rooms, Ohio is seeing an increase in movie business, Ohio’s NBC affiliate WYKC reports.

Ohio’s film office secured four more movies to be filmed at least partly in Ohio. One of them – Marvel Entertainment’s The Avengers – had switched locations to Cleveland from Detroit. Marvel’s decision to shoot scenes for The Avengers in Ohio cost Detroit’s four-star Westin Book Cadillac about $280,000 in business, hotel sales manager Amanda Toy had previously told the Detroit News.

Entertainment Weekly says The Avengers started filming one month ago in Albuquerque, N.M., and was scheduled to move to Cleveland, followed by New York City. The movie will be released in theaters on May 4, 2012. (Source)

Extras “The Hottest Men of Summer 2011”

Summer is around the corner, and with it comes blockbuster movies and its hotties who star in them. Check out Extra’s steamy list of the summer’s sexiest men!

Chris Hemsworth:
Australian-born Chris Hemsworth stars in the Marvel action film, Thor. The hunky Hemsworth trained immensely for the part — maybe a little too much. In an L.A. Times interview, the actor admitted he could not fit into his costume because he was TOO muscular!

“[The filmmakers] kept saying ‘Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.’ And then I came back right before Christmas, just before we started the movie, and had a final sort of camera test and put the costume on and within a couple of minutes, my hands started going numb,” Hemsworth said in his interview.

“And I thought, ‘OK, it doesn’t fit.’”
