That part obviously went to Chris Hemsworth, but Marvel liked Hiddleston enough to keep him around (and wisely so). Today, we get our first look at what Hiddleston would've looked like as Thor, and, you know what? It's not bad!
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis.

The past few weeks have doubled our excitement for Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' with the promise of several major Marvel figures to come, but apart from one we've known all along, the first will in fact arrive with February's premiere episode, "T.R.A.C.K.S."! The first photos from the landmark installment have arrived, but do the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' have Deathlok in their sights?
Just when Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' finally had us excited for its potential once more, now that Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) will soon come to town, the ABC series dropped two more major bombshells on us. Not only will Marvel character Deathlok come into play courtesy of someone we've already met, but 'Thor' villain Lorelei will battle with Lady Sif in an upcoming episode!
Problematic though Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has proven, the recent announcement that Jaimie Alexander will put in an appearance as ‘Thor’’s Lady Sif has us excited for Marvel’s TV adventure all over again.

ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week is jam packed with tidbits, from a major move for the 'Batman vs. Superman' movie to new Marvel TV ventures to Phase 2 updates!
While we still patiently await the first real footage and trailer from Marvel's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' we've got yet another sneak peek at the new film via some promotional artwork. The designs, which will be used on future products tied-in with the film's release, feature heroic leading characters like Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, and Groot.
Marvel's critically debated 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' earned itself a bit of movie credit in only the second episode, sneaking in a cameo for Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, but at long last our first true movie superhero has arrived. Lady Sif herself (and a personal favorite), Jaimie Alexander, will drop by the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' in an upcoming episode!
Marvel has plenty on its TV development plate already, between the ongoing 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and the five upcoming 'Defenders' Netflix series, but it seems a potential 'Agent Carter' TV spinoff may yet move forward after all. The studio has all-but-officially hired a pair of writers and executive producers to run the drama, seemingly confirming its development for ABC.
