Tom Hiddleston & Michael Fassbender at Comic-Con: who would you rather?

So, the fan-girls are about to die today, and I have to admit it… I’m right there with them. Something magical happened this weekend at Comic-Con, although in my opinion, the magical part was not Tom Hiddleston. Still, I know you guys love your Loki, so let’s talk about the Dragonfly King first. Just FYI: our photo agencies don’t have the Hiddleston photos yet (but I believe we’ll eventually get them), so I’ve jacked some Twitter and Instagram photos for your viewing pleasure. It seems that Hiddles appeared at what should have been a panel discussion for Thor 2: The Dark World. He showed up as Loki and the audience went WILD:

Hiddles made me laugh. I think it’s sweet, you guys. I mean, you could say that he takes himself seriously, but I think of it more as “he’s committed to delivering something special to his fans at the geek-athon of Comic-Con.” Here’s a bonus Hiddles interview on the red carpet too:

But really, all of the magic (in my pants) was happening at the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel. Fassbender. Hoult. McKellen. Jackman. McAvoy. Dinklage!!!!! They all came out for the X-Men panel! And Yeezus Christ, Fassbender looked AMAZING. I want to lick his arms. I say that without apology.

Apparently, Ian McKellen came on to Fassbender and James McAvoy got jealous! We’ll have more Comic-Con coverage tomorrow, but I just thought you’d like to see this stuff. Enjoy!

    Love me some Loki……dear God…that was HOT!

  2. Lindy79 says:

    FassAvoy all the way!!

    I know i’ll be in the minority but I found the whole Loki thing a bit cringey. I know the studio set it up and it was their idea so Hiddles shouldn’t be blamed but I just physically cringed.

    • Spooks says:

      Me too. And I LOVE Loki and find him so hot. But this was too much.

    • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

      I cringed. Marvel treated him like a trained seal to boost the signal for Captain America. There was no panel for Thor 2, and no other cast members. I don’t blame Hiddles for the fan girl “Lokis army” pandering because I think this was all Marvels idea.

      His interview was telling: he took pains to remind people that he is a trained stage actor. He handled the whole thing very well, but my jaw dropped when I realized that the cast wasn’t thee and there would be no panel.

      • Sixer says:

        Oh! I thought it was for a Thor 2 panel! (Haven’t looked beyond ten seconds-worth of fangirl feels on tumblr and here). I’m indulging my cricket fetish today (it’s the Ashes. Big deal in UK).

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Crumpets.

        I loved the interview. I thought it was very restrained and very gracious. I was a lot more positive in my comment down below, but I can see your point – there’s a very cool vibe to it. I’m sure he must have been annoyed to have been shipped in, and didn’t even have Chemboy to play with.

        It’s like being promised Wham! and turning up to find they’ve just sent along Andrew Ridgley.

      • DahliaDee says:

        I think they showed some (apparently very spoilery) new footage from Thor 2. Eh, I don’t know about the trained seal bit. I think Marvel realizes that when it comes to the Thor part of the franchise, it’s really Loki who has the most appeal fan-wise. And I too cringed, so much. But at the same time, it was hard to look away. He didn’t seem to take himself all that seriously though. He was trying not to laugh and failing.

      • j.eyre says:

        I will go one further C&C and DahliaDee – they used Hiddleston to send Hemsworth a message about how well the franchise will survive without him. It verges on cruel.

        Props to Tom, he handled this as a professional. I hope he had a little fun with it as well.

        ETA – I just saw your Wham! reference, Fanty. well played… well played.

      • Miss M says:

        I just hope they bring the Thor cast to Comic Con in NYC. :)

      • Anna says:

        @Miss Jane – even my love of Hems aside, I really can’t see anyone else becoming Thor but him. Either way, Chris has done a great job managing his non-Marvel career decisions, so I think he’s gonna come out alright (as long as he stays away from 50 Shades – that cant be anything other than toxic).

        @Fanty – I cant even imagine how sad Tommy must have been to not have his play-mate. I dont think there is a bigger Hemsworth fanboy/girl, myself and Miss Jane included.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Do we think Hiddles realises this, given he is such good friends with Hemsworth.
        If it were any other movies you would find it odd that the title star wasnt there but the villain was but given the fangirl obsession with Loki and Hiddles, it was definitely the smart move by marvel. Would have been nicer for a panel though, considering the movie is less than 5 months away.

      • j.eyre says:

        Lindy79 – I don’t know. I assume they had some kind of inkling. I do not think it will cause bad blood between them but my guess would be that yes, they both know.

        What I think is so bizarre about the whole thing is Thor 2 was the hype for sdcc. The street from the airport to the convention center has been lined with Thor 2 at Comic Con banners for a month. People waited for 24 hours to go see that panel. To have Thor serve as merely an introduction for Capt A makes no sense. Especially because there were other Thor cast members at Comic Con and Cumberbatch and Freeman did videos from their locations for Sherlock.

        I can’t make any sense of this. I do wish Hemsworth would give Fiege the finger. My “I Heart Chris” side hopes he does it privately and walks away with his head held high. My vindictive/Jane side wishes he would do it as publicly and humiliatingly as possible.

      • Miss M says:

        @j.eyre: Like you said, Thor was the big thing there, what if… what if something happened in the last minute due to the negotiations, etc… I know, conjectures… but , it seems sooooo odd… Unless, they chose to give some Hype to Captain America and use Thor for Comic Con in NYC. Who knows????!!!!

      • Anna says:

        The thing is (and I will slightly contradict myself from upthread), Hems’ brand equity is still very strongly tied to Marvel, making it more difficult for him to ‘give the finger’. Not as strongly as Evans’, for instance (who really just cant ‘break out’), but much more than Hiddles (stage/indie/costume drama cred) or other ‘big franchise’ stars like Fassy or Cumby. Until, consecutively, RUSH, Cyber and Heart of the Sea (whatever it’s called) do well, Hems is not gonna be a bonafide. And if those underperfrom…well, I think he has too much ambition (now) yet not enough range to diversify a la Hiddles and Cumby and Fassy, whose careers are really not dependent on the tent-pole success.

      • j.eyre says:

        Anna, I slightly disagree with you on this (with the upmost respect, of course) I think with the SWATH success, he positioned himself as a viable lead. I don’t know about his range yet (hope springs eternal, right?) but he could be as successful ala Keanu Reeves if he selects movies that suit his range. We know he wants to be done with Thor and this may be the chance he is hoping for. They moved RUSH up to put it in contention for Oscar nomination – even if Hems gets nothing, the movie getting a nod would help him. Howard hired him again and given Howrd’s reputation in Hollywood, this is a pretty big endorsement. Plus, Michael Mann and Spielberg both hired him (even if the Spielberg doesn’t go through, it is not because of Hems.) I argue the perfect time to depart would be right after the success of Thor 2.

        We are discussing a man who made his mark as a soap actor – I believe he has played his career trajectory beautifully.

        Now, if we could just find a way to get him back in town…

      • Lucrezia says:

        To be fair to Hemsworth, 99% of Aussie actors come from soapies. Mel Gibson, Russell Crowe, Naomi Watts, Guy Pearce, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett: they’ve all been in Aussie soaps.

        It’s not like we have a big theatre tradition, or much of a movie industry. You want to work, you work in soapies.

    • MissThing says:

      Trained seal or not, Hiddles delivered the product well. I’d still hit it over all the rest.

      Fassy does nothing for me nor does McAvoy. Sorry.

      I did feel it odd that no other cast was there and the absence of a Q&A was REALLY odd. I think somewhere something happened behind the scenes because this thing with Tom was relatively last minute.

      On the other hand Marvel has been so tight-lipped about the Thor 2 script that they maybe didn’t want to answer a million questions with “I can’t answer that right now” etc… Or perhaps they were afraid everyone would ask about the pay-rate “scandals” and the arguments with the director etc.

      Who knows.

    • Another Ann says:

      Uh, that’s what ComicCon is for. They are there to sell their upcoming movies. And Marvel did it VERY well. Everyone is buzzing about the intro that Hiddleston did. Mission accomplished.

    • MissM says:

      I’m far from a Loki-looney, but he was there doing his job as part of a huge Marvel panel. Marvel had ScarJo there to talk Avengers with Joss Whedon, James Gunn and the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy were there as a surprise, etc. Hiddleston was just part of the circus and it seems like he was a crowd-fave.

  3. Mew says:

    Neither. I’d rather go have a pint and chat with Dinklage.

  4. LadyAnne says:

    Fassy, McAvoy, Hoult : Hot Guy Sunday, yay !!! Thanks !

  5. Miss M says:

    As a Dragonfly Goddess, I am biased to say this, but I think Hiddleston is very professional and respectful of his fans.

    ps: McAvoy and Jackman!!!!! Fassyfever has been cured.

  6. sara says:

    I’d like to lick more th as n those arms! Fassy looks divine!

  7. Abby says:

    Oh god Hiddleston makes me cringe even more. Ughh what was the need to come dressed up as Loki?? Major turn off.

    McAvoy & Fassy…..gahh they surely made my Sunday. I love them together and still ship them…I know its weird but I can’t help it. McAvoy is like my absolute favourite…he is so cuteeeee….sorry I am fangirling like crazy.

    Is it just me or JLaw & Nick look a little awkward with each other

    • Miss M says:

      There is something called contract that actors when are professionals fulfilled them + he’s a theater actor + he’s a geek!

      • Lindy79 says:

        Yeah I agree. This was set up by Marvel. They know his draw with the fan girls so it was a smart move. However I disliked comments by some blogs praising him for memorising the speech…he’s an actor. Its what they do…hardly groundbreaking stuff.

      • Mia 4S says:

        Yeah the Loki thing was cute but he really really needs to start easing away from that character.

        Is it just me or was Hemsworth’s absense…interesting? Last I heard he was filming in LA, not exactly far away and certainly not as far as some of the others who came (basically everyone else!). Given the recent behind the scenes gossip it’s…interesting.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Havent heard anything about behind the scenes but I did wonder if it was pissing any of the other actors off that he was the only one they had there. I put it down to schedules.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Mia4s – wait, don’t hold out on us! Whats the behind the scenes gossip?

      • Mia 4S says:

        @TheyPromisedMeBeer: Nothing that exciting. It’s no secret that Marvel is cheap and particularly cheap with actors not named RDJ. The story is that there was bad blood as the various actors started looking for more money and Marvel lowballed them. Someone like Evans hasn’t really got much leverage but sadly Hemsworth can make a lot more money doing sequels to that awful Snow White movie. Plus he’s getting outside offers which likely would pay very well and will likely have to turn down many of them because of his Thor contract.

        Let’s just say I wouldn’t expect him to do Marvel any favors.

        I think people who love these movies sometimes forget that to many of the actors (hi Scarlet!) these are roles for the paycheck and publicity to go do more “important” work.

      • Lapatita19 says:

        This is my first time posting…So this feels strange. I was at Comic-Con this whole weekend and I just wanted to say that Tom Hiddleston was not the only actor to came out dressed in full costume. Andrew Garfield had his Spiderman costume on for half of the “Amazing Spiderman 2″ panel. He only answered to the name Spiderman, and he answered all the questions as Spiderman would answer them. Also today my niece met and took pictures with Tom Hiddleston, she said he was very nice he even gave her a hug. I have been going to Comic-Con for 12 years and this year was the best.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Hong Kong, probably nothing then. The absense from the Oscars plus the whispers is all there really is at this point. Keep an eye though, where there’s smoke there’s fire. People keep saying Renner would be the one to go first, I’m not so sure.

    • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

      It was not his idea, as he pointed out in his interview. He was being a good sport. I just feel sorry for him– I don’t think this Loki thing is serving him well.

  8. Pixie says:

    Oh Lord what I’d have given to be in that room when Hiddles came in- HOT!!!! And the X-Men panel was good too, I love me some Nicholas Hoult!

  9. mia girl says:

    Jackman! & McAvoy! on the same stage… I’m dying.

    Stewart! McKellen! Fassbender! Dinklage! Hoult! Dying some more.

    I’m even feeling it for Page and Lawrence they were looking good too.

    What a panel. Not even Halle Berry’s presence could eff it up.

    Can’t wait to see this movie.

    • DahliaDee says:

      mia darling, you took the words right from under my fingertips :)
      Men with long(ish) hair don’t usually do it for me, and neither do married men (no, not even in fantasies, I’m a prude like that), but hot dayum, McAvoy!
      Fassbender, though, I could rather leave than take. Nowadays my reaction to him is more ‘Ew!’ than ‘UNF!’ I think it only ever existed because of his turn as Mr Rochester, and then his personality chipped away at it until there was nothing left. I’d take Hiddleston’s try-hard-dorky-overexcited-piddle-the-carpet-eager-to-please-puppy routine over Fassbender’s fast-and-hard living any day.

    • Diana says:

      yes, awesome, awesome, awesome ALL the way. Can’t wait for this movie.

  10. kennedy says:

    McAvoy…. everyone else should bow down to him. He will always be Robbie from Atonement to me. “Come back to me… come back.”

  11. Ncboudicca says:

    Sure it was a bit silly, maybe cringe-worthy a little bit, but I don’t care. If Hiddleston showed up at my front door dressed as Loki, I’d push my husband out the back door and lock him out for awhile…

    Patrick Stewart tweeted a photo of Sir Ian making them risotto prior to their appearance. Absolutely adorable.

  12. Nessa says:

    McAvoy and Fassy. OB-SESSSSSSSED.

  13. Sixer says:

    FassAvoy panel for me too.

    But, even though Hiddles is currently residing in my pesthouse for being so annoying, as I’m sure I’ve told everyone a dozen times by now, I think that Loki business was cool. What’s Comic-doo-dah for if it’s not for high camp servicing of fans? And that was it. Entirely different to Hiddles’s cringe-inducing Twitter fanbaiting. Comic-Con good. Other stuff not good.

    I don’t fancy him as Loki though. Only as ginger. And these days, only when ginger AND gagged.

  14. lady mary. says:

    Hugh jackman looks scrumptious in that white shirt ,mcavoy looked adorable with his locks ,fassydong sigh ,what can one say ?

  15. flower says:

    I liked Tom cosplaying Loki, thought it was really unexpected.

    • Irishae says:

      I loved every second of it. I’m not even a fan of Tom and I thought it was fun. It takes someone rather boring, but admittedly somewhat intelligent to hate on this. I don’t care if it was pandering or contractually obligated or whatever.

      • MademoiselleRose says:

        I’m not a fan of Hiddleston, but that was too cool. I loved it. He’s hot with long hair. I watched Thor to see Hemsworth, but came away Loki all the way. He’s the reason I’ll go back for the next movie.

        That X-Man panel was totally amazing – all of those people in one place. What a lineup, I didn’t know where to look first. Hugh Jackman all the way, but love McEvoy’s accent.

        If I could choose one of them to have a beer with though I’d choose Dinklage. Just watched the whole third season of Game of Thrones back to back and I almost started cheering whenever he came on the screen. That guy is something … in all those stories going on there, he’s the one who puts a smile on my face. He has such a huge presence, he can act up a storm, and he has those beautiful eyes. He’s just awesome.

  16. Birdie says:

    Didn’t feel the roleplay Loki performance. He seemed really into himself. After that he gave an interview and highlighted how he trained at the Royal Theatre or something and it seemed he just wanted to namedrop that.

  17. krtmom64 says:

    I love Tom as Loki! Hot bad guy!!!

    • Ncboudicca says:

      Oops replied to wrong post, sorry! meant to reply to Sixer! i do agree Loki is hot. :-)

      I’m glad you said that – I haven’t been to ComicCon but I’ve been to DragonCon and it’s way more fun when you get into the spirit of it, which he totally did. Now I can enjoy the video without feeling at all awkward. :-)

      Wish he had this make-up artist give him a tutorial on properly applying foundation, because Loki looks flawless.

      • Sixer says:

        I’m not AT ALL geeky like that myself, but I get it that people are. And that Comic-Con is for them to indulge all their anorakishness/trainspotterishness and enjoy it. Good for them, you know? And good for Marvel that they put on a show. It’s a dedicated fan arena and the Hiddles thang was part of that. I’ve been downer than a downy thing on him lately, but even I wouldn’t think ill of him for this.

    • Vixo says:

      Yeah! I’ve said it before, it must be so fun to play the villain in a superhero movie!

      Tom looks super hot as Loki and I agree, his personal makeup artist should learn how to apply foundation – he’s not orange, for a change!

  18. LilyRose says:

    I witnessed the twitter freak out last night. I liked this, dude’s a big kid. And the fans seemed to enjoy the spectacle so no snark from me.

    McFassy are just cute together. That movie and all those people better not suck.

  19. T.Fanty says:

    The Hiddles/Loki appearance was super cheesy, but I don’t mean that in a bad way. It was entirely appropriate to the context. And I thought the interview was lovely, too. Just low-key (ha) and relaxed.

    That said, the Thor presentation seemed somewhat budget, no? All that for a two minute appearance, a trailer and no Thor?

  20. JM says:

    Can I be the center of a Fassbender/Stewart sandwhich?

    Make it so, Number 1!

  21. Original A says:

    Fassy! He’s looking good.

  22. Side-Eye says:

    Oh Tom, there is nothing you can do to make me not bored and over you. Its annoying because tumblr had this dude all over my dashboard ignoring the folks I actually cares about(need to switch around who I’m following) and so I missed and had to search for the glorious Fassavoy myself. Ugh.

  23. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    Can we get some pics of Jason Momoa crashing the Game of Thrones panel? Rrrrrrowrrrr!

    I’m kind of torn between two feelings about Tom here:
    1). That interview made me think of Alan Rickman’s character from Galaxy Quest, where he has to remind everyone that he is a serious Shakespearean actor stuck in a sci-fi/fantasy contract and you can tell it burns him a little each time he has to don the alien costume for obligations

    but …

    2). But he went with it anyways, he went all in, he clearly loves his fans, and he had a blast. And it’s Comic-con. Where else do you do that if not Comic-con? Good on ya, Tommyanne. You can have some biscuits and gravy and maybe Mrs. Eyre will let you run out the pasture for awhile.

    • MissThing says:

      Are you kidding me? That man was FEEDING off the high he got from that performance. He may have to pay lip service to the hoity toity stiff lipped types but that man ENJOYED what he was doing last night.

      That was the first time he ‘performed’ in front of an audience that large and that rabid. Who wouldn’t get a major high from it.

      He was soaking it up and now that he has a taste of the rock-star effect, I bet he is going to want more.

      • Linda L says:

        @MissThing:

        YES. He’s been the recipient of such consistent adulation for the past two years or so. He IS feeding off this. Humility, my a$$. Hence, the Twitter baiting and showing up for anything that comes with a camera. Going to want more? Yup.

        I feel rather bad for those true Shakespeare fans when that play comes out. I suspect THIS is what is going to happen in that audience. These shrieking fangirls of his will be there is full force.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Hopefully the ones who have no real appreciation of Shakespeare will decide to watch on the live stream. Id say the National will be quick to kick any of them out if they started.

      • MissThing says:

        On the other hand… he proved he can shut them up with a simple gesture so maybe there is hope for the Coriolanus play.

      • Resnictem says:

        The only thing is, I was looking forward to the Coriolanus feed at Sundance Cinema in my hometown & would rather not hear the squealing. Maybe they can salvage it somehow, as the showing isn’t until February here.

      • DahliaDee says:

        @MissThing
        Yes, he did! And frankly, I’ve yet to see many other celebrities who can pull that off. Maybe Joss Whedon. A friend who was there also said he came back at some point and apologized to the audience for shushing them, though I’m not sure he wasn’t pulling my leg…

  24. j.eyre says:

    There is no one mentioned in any of these panels that I would kick out of bed. And that includes the Capt A and Guardians panels that went on as well.

    McAvoy should always wear a shirt that tight.

    Sir Ian and Fassy flirting is my new “happy place”

  25. lc says:

    Fassy has been grossing me out for a while now. I had major hots for him in Hex, but something about his personality is very off-putting. He gives off douche vibes and is known to abuse women physically and verbally. Yuck! Even looking at his “hot” pictures makes me gag nowadays.

    Hiddles, yes! I was totally suckered into this whole thing, sexual innuendos and all.

    • Side-Eye says:

      You’re going to have to give me receipts for that abuse thing. Legitimate receipts.

    • Lindy79 says:

      Not disputing the douche vibes but to my knowledge there has only been one allegation made by his ex who has a shady background and a history of making these kind of allegations. Please dont take this as being apologetic to abuse but she comes across as a climber (her people released that story about them reconciling after the Globes last year) who withdrew the claim as she didn’t want to hurt his career. If thst were me and a guy laid a finger I wouldn’t give a whooping funt about his career.

      • Diana says:

        Maybe this touches a nerve because I used to work with women victims of domestic violence. So, sorry in advance, LOL. :) But… She may be a social climber and not all-around awesome person. He may still have abused her. One really has nothing to do with the other, unless you’re looking to combat her credibility, which has been used countless times to discredit women’s allegations of domestic violence. I’m not saying he did or didn’t. I prefer to keep an open mind, but I’m not going to do the mental gymnastics required to stack the deck in his favor. It is what it is, and we really don’t know.

        Also, can we please not with “if this were me…” It’s not you. If this is a relationship where domestic violence was present, one of the hallmarks that characterizes such relations is that the abused person will often recant their story and/or agree not to press charges. Very common due to the psychological hold that an abuser often has over their victim.

      • teena says:

        FAssy seems like a very charismatic guy, but he’s a heavy partier and drinker, and has a bad temper. He could be a great guy normally, but under the wrong conditions, he could seem like a nightmare too. I could see how someone would withdraw such claims when someone’s behavior isn’t all black or white and your feelings for him are equally complicated.

      • Lindy79 says:

        I honestly wasnt trying to stack the decjs in his favour. I agree, he may or may not have done it, its possible given his reputation for drinking and if he did i honestly wish she had gone through with the charges. I just dont like the “he is a known abuser both physically and verbally” comments.

      • Oops says:

        @teena : Exactly my feelings about him, he must be the most charming man and then to become a real nightmare, what bothers most with him) it’s the alcohol consumption which seems to me excessive and there he must be able to show himself very aggressive (I believe that he has a scar further to a fight in a bar right ?)

      • oreally says:

        What about the stories of him being incredibly rude to waiters. Treating them like sh8t.

      • Lindy79 says:

        To my knowledge it was one waiter, and some blogs reported it like Fassbender yelled and was abusive to him, which according to GQ, he did not. Doesn’t excuse his rudeness but can we not with the sweeping generalizations as if he treats every single waiter this way. I worked in retail all through college and I’m sure not everyone who was rude/snapped at me/treated me like crap for no reason was an inherently bad person.

        It was actually covered on this site. It does acknowledge that he appears to be someone with 2 sides to him, which people have discussed above.

    • KC says:

      No such thing is “known”. You’re just repeating rumors from an unreliable narrator. RME

      • Side-Eye says:

        Exactly. The whole story sounded fishy, and I don’t get why we’re not allowed to cast doubt upon someone just because the accusation happens to center around domestic violence. Domestic violence is a horrible, but there’s a reason for the phrase “innocent until proven guilty” and I hate the idea that just because the accusation is there it means it’s “known” that that’s his personality, when this is the only time we’ve heard anything like that about him, and when it’s coming from an unreliable source.

      • lc says:

        Him taking the woman back after she nearly destroyed his reputation is evidence enough for me.

    • Lily says:

      Evidence?Have you seen them together?There is no evidence that he has taken her back.Even if he has seen her again,do you know what he has said,the reason of their encounter?And if was him to forgive her? This absense of doubt is surreal.

    • FassDaActor says:

      Imma need receipts for all these accusations a rumors disguised as truth. Some of you just don’t like him for no good reason. He never yelled at a waiter. That’s a Lainey lie but some of you will role with that ’till the end. It’s horrible how some try to destroy a reputation. He gets along on every set. Yeah, he likes to party. So? If you don’t that’s cool. But to call him sleazy? If you have a heart, you can feel his humanity and passion from his interviews and his performances.

      Cut out these lies. It’s disgusting. How would you like it if someone accused you of doing something you didn’t do?

  26. bluhare says:

    You all can have Hiddleston and MacAvoy. I’ll be declaiming some Shakespeare, followed by a couple of rousing Oklahoma numbers over here. McKellen, Stewart and Jackman won’t be able to resist me. And we’ll all be having leftover risotto.

  27. elay says:

    Fassbender is looking hot during the Comic Con and looks like Ian Mckellen really loves Fassbender:

    “I feel safe here now that you got rid of Prop. 8,” he said, referring to the recently abolished law that prohibited same-sex marriage.

    “I’m looking for a husband,” he said. “It’s great to meet you, Michael.”

    Fassbender blushed.

    —- hahaahaha

    TH is an employee of Marvel. His job is to promote their products. Mission accomplished. Marvel is ALL about making the most $$ in the world, and he helped. They used him to attract those shrieking fangirls (I thought it was going to be a panel on Thor 2, but, I guess not?). It made me cringe a bit, but not like the MTV mustache thing. This was harmless. And his stans Ate. It. Up.

    CC is all about getting excited about entertainment, dressing up and acting silly. It’s not saving lives- it’s having fun. Not a bad thing to do on a stifling hot summer afternoon.

  29. Sachi says:

    I will never stop having the hots for James McAvoy. My dream is to recreate the library scene in Atonement with him! :D

    Fassy is looking fine. Still don’t find him hot.

  30. Emily C. says:

    Hiddleston. He seems like a good person. Fassbender does not.

    • DahliaDee says:

      @Emily
      That, right there, is why I find him hot. Other than his voice, hair, hands, endless legs and tall tree form, that is. Fassbender seems like a douche. A smiley guy’s guy, but a douche nonetheless. But… Did y’all see the photos of Henry Cavill at Comic Con? MAJOR douche vibes. Unlike Hiddles, who was professional and game, this one couldn’t have seemed more annoyed to be there if he was trying to win an Oscar. I finally realized that’s the reason I find him so grating and unattractive.

  31. paranormalgirl says:

    Tom Hiddleston only does it for me when in Loki regalia.

  32. strah says:

    Out of all the guys in this post Peter Dinklage is the one that makes my heart jump. He has the most magnificent eyes.

  33. EscapedConvent says:

    Just watched the “Loki” clip, & cheesy as it certainly was, I thought it was funny as hell. He had such fun with it & was trying not to laugh.

    Also, this guy has stage presence like nobody’s business & I would love to see him on stage. In something where he can “thunder” with that wonderful voice.

    And I’m not a Dragonfly! Just thought the Loki bit was well done.

  34. MeowuiRose says:

    I would do terrible terrible things to Fassbender. I have my basement and chains all ready. As for Tom, he could keep me “company” when Fassy needed a break.

  35. Bianca says:

    First the beard, now the long hair – James McAvoy really really wants me to stop loving him, doesn’t he? Well, it’s not working. I literally squealed when I heard him speaking in that Scottish accent of his. (I was just in Edinburgh and I miss it already)

  36. Elodie says:

    Even though it was Marvel idea, the whole Loki thing gave me a but of second hand embarrassment. And good god the makeup artist went heavy on the powder.
    That X-Men was so epic, I love that they managed to get EVERYONE!
    Anyway I take Peter Dinklage anytime anywhere, followed closely by Jesus looking Scot aka McAvoy, then Patrick Stewart oh yes, and then Fassbender but only for one night stand this one.

  37. Tish says:

    Hiddles. Marvel. Too much.

    It’s great to see McAvoy in US limelight again. I do hope his films with Chastain take off. He should have been bigger by now.

    Fassy needs better skin care products. He looks… older than his age suggests.

  38. Bijlee says:

    Meh. Neither. After a week of cumberbatch these two just seem to boring in comparison.

  39. KC says:

    Fassy or McFassy at the same time.

    No one else is even worthy of being in this conversation.

  40. Ginger says:

    OMG! I have a couple of girlfriends there right now that keep reporting on facebook. I had no idea Loki and Fassy were there…jealous!

  41. elle. says:

    ha! i just saw last night one epissode of top gear since 2012 (somewhere in the beginning of season 18) and i had no idea that Fassbender woud make an appearance! very nice surprise, I have to say. leather jacket plus driving like an f1 driver – that is when i got it. uuuufff, fassbender!

  42. Dommy Dearest says:

    Hiddles as Loki and only Loki. Outside of the garb I can’t seem to find him attractive. But as the God of Lies, yes please!

  43. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Fassy forever and always <3

  44. Reece says:

    Yep full fangirl Mode right now.

  45. mel says:

    Yeah, yeah, I admit it. Hiddles as Loki makes me tingle in my special place.

  46. Jennifer12 says:

    James McAvoy….. O.M.F.F.F.F.F.G.

  47. I Choose Me says:

    I’d like to be in the middle of a Hiddles and Fassy sandwich please. Barring that, I would like to sit in on a Hiddles and Hemsworth tryst. Or a Fassy and McAvoy tryst.

  49. oreally says:

    I found the hard sell by Hiddleston creepy as hell. I want to see Eccleston (the actual baddie in Thor 2) not this conceited p*ick. I seriously dibt Hiddleston needed any persuasion. He was lapping up all the attention. His ego will be pumped up on this for the rest of the year.

    • Linda L says:

      @oreally:
      Oh, yes. The man is consuming this unbelievable adulation. It shows no signs of stopping, either, in the foreseeable future. Feed that ego, Tom.
      I was also looking forward to actual discussions about the actual Thor film, but, I guess Marvel saw $$$ signs with sending out TH in costume.

      And, just my opinion here, but Loki wasn’t even a good villain. He was camp. I liked The Avengers- RDJ and company. It was an entertaining popcorn movie, but Loki was not scary or threatening. We were watching The Dark Knight Rises last night, and let me tell you- BANE still scares the freckles off me. Now *there* was a villain.

  50. Halicon says:

    that is sure a lot of British white dudes there.

  51. Finn says:

    McAvoy! No question about it. Then Hoult and Dinklage…then Jackman. (Of course McAvoy, Dinklage, and Jackman are all devoted family men, and Hoult is with Lawrence.)

  52. Hayley says:

    Hiddleston. Hiddleston. Hiddleston. Good Lord…. Hiddleston.

  53. Mrs.Darcy says:

    So much to take in, in way over my head w/X-Men as have only seen bits of the films and not seen the prequel(s??) Peter Dinklage was in the prequel? Must get hands on now! I do really want to see this even though it will be a hot mess of confusion for me no doubt.

    I wasn’t that into Loki in Avengers, he was good fun but I just didn’t get the fuss (not having seen Thor). I really thought Hiddleston did a great job here though, and would have to be someone who does not take himself too seriously to pull this off with the panache that he did, you could see him cracking up a bit also so I don’t get how anyone could think he was taking it too seriously. Tbh Thor seems like it’s deadly dull w/out him so I can see why they play up to his popularity.

    That panel…James McAvoy dear gods of hotness. So charming. Fassbender, how has he not hooked up w/Halle?! Sir Ian
    and Sir Patrick are adorable. J.Law sorry honey you are slightly out of your league/element. Hugh is overdoing it on the Halle front, I wish he wouldn’t constantly come across as overcompensating because it really does make me believe the gossip a bit. Why the frack didn’t Peter speak? Or did I miss it? (I fwd’d a few bits). The world needs more Dinklage!

  54. Diana says:

    Oh man, Hiddles was just seriously sweet about that whole performance; I was starting to get annoyed with him but he has officially won me back. And God, can McAvoy get any hotter? he’s giving me the tingles. Ian if you don’t want him I’ll take him gladly. Fassy never does it for me but I’ll admit he’s looking quite the hotty here.

  55. Adrien says:

    Hiddleston, of course. Then MacAvoy. Fass can just watch.
    Tom is an OA actor but the right kind of OA, “mewling quim” OA.

  56. Decloo says:

    Am I crazy or does Hiddleston with long hair look like Kristen Scott-Thomas on a bad day?

  57. mena says:

    I don’t think it was so awful that Tom did this.

    Everyone loved RDJ for doing it when Iron Man 3 was at ComicCon. RDJ put on a slick Tony Stark suit. He put on the Iron Man hand. And he spent a good few minutes dancing through the crowd to get to the stage.

    Besides, now that Tom did it, he won’t ever have to do it again.

    Can’t say the same for rest of The MARVEL Universe actors.

    How hilarious would it be if Natalie Portman is contractually obligated to do something like this?!?!?

  58. Browniecakes says:

    Hiddleston was contracted for 5 movies with Disney. How many more movies, if any, do we have? We got Thor 1, Thor 2, Avengers but do War Horse and that Muppet movie count?

  59. DahliaDee says:

    MOG, has anyone seen him at Nerd HQ?!?
    I have no words. I’m cry-laughing. And IDEK if it’s so-bad-it-180′d-to-good, or so-bad-it-circled-past-good-and-all-the-way-back-to-bad…

  60. JFerber says:

    So much goodness all in one place. I swoon for Hiddleston as Loki. Fassbender has NEVER held any attraction for me. Fassbender might as well be a neuter. I just don’t get his appeal at all.

  61. ArabellaStrange says:

    Oh good grief.

    I know I’m gonna get reamed for this and called a “fangirl” (as if that’s the worst thing in the world to be) but the way Hiddleston’s performance as Loki this weekend is being described here by many is really negatively skewed. Sure folks can have an opinion, but there’s also context to be taken into account.

    I get that the point of this blog is to be cynical about Hollywood, and be as cool as possible. Hell, I sideeye the tactics of the entertainment biz as much as anyone, but you all make it sound like Hiddleston is some kind of puppet for Marvel/Disney and only does this stuff to be an attention whore.

    First of all. He was not the only one “cosplaying”. His was just on a much larger stage. Andrew Garfield did his entire panel in character and in costume as SPIDER MAN. Bryan Cranston spent half the con in a Walter White MASK walking around on the floor. Matt Smith dressed as Bart Simpson so he could be incognito. I’m not going to even mention known geeks like Seth Green who’ve been going to Comic-Con since it was just about comics.

    Have you ever considered that maybe some of these people actually enjoy participating in this stuff too because not too long ago they were the ones sitting in the audience?

    Sure it’s not the case for all of the actors and creative types but a hell of a lot were and still are fanboys and fangirls themeselves.

    Of course you’re gonna say that Hiddleston is an Eton/Cambridge upper-class boy he’s not those people and thinks he’s superior. That’s a hell of an assumpton to make about a person, I’m an Ivy Leaguer with a private school education and nothing like the stereotype. Most people aren’t.

    The studios are pushing hard because movie ticket sales are tanking. They are making almost no money. They need the dog and pony show to survive, even the superhero flicks. The stars know this. This is their bread and butter.

    Finally, Comic Con is part of an incredibly over the top, campy culture, genre, scifi, fantasy, that expects that level of cheese. Looking from the outside-in, it’s probably going to look ridiculous. Just like if you were on a TV or movie set it would look ridiculous. These folks know what they’ve signed up for.

    Yeah, I like Hiddleston. He’s actually quite talented. I actually think he’s pretty genuine and have been given reason to believe it. His fans suck. At least a lot of them do and I keep my distance because I don’t want to be associated with them. But that’s not his fault. I’ve been on Twitter for years and he doesn’t use it any differently than a lot of actors who are casually friendly with fans/followers. It sure as hell has gotten out of control. But he’s not the only one. If anything his fault is that he’s too damn nice to them. The perky/positivity shit is crap that a lot of actors like for motivation. Not all…some. I think it’s annoying as hell. So I don’t read it.

    Does he fool around with women even some fans? I’m pretty damn sure that he does. He’s an attractive, smart, charismatic 32 yr old hetero male. All that’s to say he is not perfect. That’s not why I’m here.

    Mostly I made this comment because to castigate him for behavior, albeit on a larger scale, that others participated in as well at the same event isn’t just mean, it’s misinformed. About Comic-Con as an event, the role actors and other creatives play at them, and why. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion of course, I’m just expressing mine.

    ps. NO I’m not one of his “people” nor am I affiliated with or at all invested in him. Just my own point of view.

  62. Sharon says:

    Fassbender is not attractive to me. He looks a little old in the face. But I do admire his acting ability, versatility, and range.

    Hiddleston I don’t know what it is about him but he irks me. I cannot put my finger on it. Never had the hots for him. I feel he gets too much attention than what he deserves. Compared to the other brits like Hardy, Cumberbatch, & Fassbender ( i know i know fassbender is not a brit) he is last on that list who would get a leading role in hollywood. Atleast right now IMO.
