I’m not even going to pretend that this is a real story. I can’t even find any quotes or interviews from Tom Hiddleston. This is just a post about the photos. Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland and others were in South Korea for the promotional tour of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s been a while since Tom was on a proper “Marvel promotional tour.” I think he got away with not doing all of the traveling for Thor: Ragnarok because The Largely Absent Hemsworth actually wanted to do the heavy lifting for the promotion, and because Marvel made it about Chris’s bromance with director Taika Waititi.
All of which to say, I’m hoping that Tom really is front and center for this promotional tour, which could go on for weeks. I hope there are so many photos and interviews. I really, really hope Marvel organized a magazine cover for him. He hasn’t been on the cover of a magazine since the somewhat disastrous GQ profile last year. Back then he was clean-shaven and still pained because of The Snake Who Shall Not Be Named. Now Tom is furry and bespeckled. Which I think is an improvement.
Considering his beard is so patchy around the sides, wouldn’t it be better if he just went with a goatee? I don’t mind a goatee, just as long as the goatee isn’t hyper-groomed. Sometimes, they look way too fussy, but I think Tom would look very good with a goatee these days.
