Tom Hiddleston Discusses Throwing Avengers Out of Windows
Posted 12.29.11 by Ryan
In Thor, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) only sought to do battle with his brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth), but in the upcoming The Avengers, the god of thunder's new friends won't be so lucky. Hiddleston admitted in September that Loki will "fight with everybody" in the movie, "every single superhero, every single Avenger, every single wonderful actor playing every single superhero." Hiddleston has also admitted that none of Thor's Avengers team members impress him, saying that he prefers to "dismiss the mere mortals".
The first trailer certainly showed that Loki was ready to antagonize, and, in an interview with NY Daily News, Hiddleston admitted to the joy he received from throwing the members of the superhero team out of windows.
I did get to throw Tony Stark [Iron Man’s alter ego] through a window — which you can see in trailers — all I can tell you is he deserved it. He’s got a sharp tongue, that Tony Stark. I had the privilege of throwing Robert Downey Jr. out of a window. So, it’s pinch-me moments all the way.
For those that have seen the trailer, it may appear that Loki actually hurls Captain America (Chris Evans) out the window, but that is merely a product of editing. Check out our evidence below.
Blurry as he may be, that's definitely Stark (Downey Jr.) being forced out of a window (of what looks like Stark Tower) by Loki.
Once Stark hits the window, the scene changes to what is set up to be a New York City Street (but could be Cleveland in actuality), but the body is no longer Stark's, instead it looks like Cap (Evans, or, more likely, a stuntman).
Yes, that's Cap that lands on the car roof. Perhaps Loki throws several Avengers out a window? We'll have to wait until next summer to see what writer-director Joss Whedon has planned for the team, which also includes Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) — all assembled by S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
