To promote the upcoming Thor: The Dark World blu-ray, a couple bits and bobs from extras have been released this week. Here’s a rundown of what’s been released so far…
First up, we were given a deleted scene. A missing segment following Frigga’s ‘visit’ to Loki in prison. There’s a few good reasons as to why I wish this scene had stayed in the movie, but lucky for you, I can’t be bothered going into it (have I mentioned my week-long sinus headache yet? Tis killing me.)

Next, we were given Tom Hiddleston’s first screen test – for the part of Thor himself. That’s right folks, if you didn’t know already, Tom Hiddleston initially auditioned for the role of Thor before the casting people decided he’d be better suited the part of Loki.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the people in charge of casting for Thor. They were brilliant. Brilliant. I mean really, Thor could never be anyone but Chris Hemsworth, Loki could never be anyone but Tom Hiddleston, Lady Sif could never be anyone but Jaimie Alexander… You get my drift. Oh, except for the guy who played Fandral. Evidently Joshua Dallas was replaceable. Sorry dude.
And finally, for the moment, we have a sneak peek of the Thor 2 gag reel which was released as an MTV exclusive.
Thor: The Dark World is due for dvd/blu-ray release on February 25. Funny enough, my dearly beloved’s birthday is on Feb 21 – what do you think his belated birthday present will be?
