Loki vs. Captain America on The Avengers Set

Thor and Captain America Comic


Thor’s nemesis Loki vs. Captain America in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”? Yup. That’s not really a spoiler. Since everyone already knows that Loki will be the film’s main villain, it stands to reason that, eventually, the two would have to tangle at some point. Hopefully Thor is waiting in the wings to lend ol Cap a hand, cause damn, Tom Hiddleston as Loki sure is towering over ol’ Cap. Is Chris Evans that short or is Hiddleston that tall?

The first video looks like Evans and Hiddleston rehearsing, with the second video showing the shooting of said fight scene on the streets of Cleveland, standing in for New York City. Notice that all the extras seems to be just moving on their merry ways in the background as the two slug it out. Loki’s magic at work, one presumes?

“The Avengers”, starring Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, assembles May 4, 2012.
