Dude. Dude? DUUUUUDE.
Ok. Lets just take a moment to think about how Tom was in character. This is Loki’s face as a crowd drunk on his presence cry out his name in desperate admiration and the tumultuous wave of sound washes over him.
Let’s just think about that.
To me there’s a desperate sadness to the character too for that very reason. Yes he is a glorious sex god for whom power is an aphrodisiac, but WHY exactly?
Because if you’re deprived of any OUNCE of something your whole life, you become absurdly overcompensatory in finally achieving it.
So Tom is a genius, because he managed to both be a crowd pleaser playing the so-called “Dom” Loki, but he also gave hints of this face of a parched man drinking ice cold water because finally he’s achieved the adulation he never once got a speck of.
THAT is why this actor is astonishing and will become one of the greatest of our generation. Yes he is the most beautiful hot man on the planet also, but he is able to catch the multifariousness of his character EVEN HERE at a COMIC CONVENTION in UNDER THREE MINUTES.
