Will Tom Hiddleston have his own 'Avengers' movie: 'I hope so,' he tells 'Chelsea Lately'
"There were a bunch of us, we were auditioning. ... [To prepare] I did less running and more lifting of things for a while," says Hiddleston, to which host Chelsea Handler says it's maybe a little dumb to bulk up before you actually have the part.
"Some might say 'insane,'" laughs Hiddleston. "It was really fun, actually. I basically went from about 180 pounds to 198 pounds, I had something like seven percent body fat. I auditioned, I swung the hammer ... but they were always looking for Loki as well and the closer I got, the more they were like, 'Actually, you should play the bad guy.'"
When Handler asks if Loki will have his own "Avengers" stand-alone film, the audience cheers wildly and Hiddleston says, "I hope so."
Girls sigh dreamily all over the country.
