    Tom Hiddleston to Play Thor's Nemesis - Kenneth Branagh continues stocking film's cast [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Relative unknown Tom Hiddleston has been cast in Thor. This casting comes hot on the heels of the news that Chris Hemsworth is deep in discussions to play Thor. Hiddleston, a Brit, will play Loki, the mischievous nemesis of the title character. Loki is nicknamed "The God of Lies and Mischief" and his goal is to kill Thor, who is his more powerful brother. Hiddleston has previously worked with director Kenneth Branagh.

    Marvel and Branagh are reportedly filling out the film's cast with fresh faces so that audiences can get to know the characters more easily and intimately, claiming that hiring established actors would distract viewers from connecting with the characters.
