James Bond: Why Daniel Craig turned down playing Thor after Marvel 'offered Avengers role'


The Bond star jokingly said that it would be too much of a power trip for him if he played both 007 and Thor. He later said: “I have no idea about Thor. I just was having a joke.”

Whatever the case, Collider reported he was offered the role outright. Hiddleston actually auditioned for the character too before bagging Loki, with his test footage being shared online.

Other stars who screen-tested for Thor included Charlie Hunnam, Alexander Skarsgard, Joel Kinnaman, Kevin McKidd, and WWE star Triple-H.

Interestingly, Hemsworth almost entirely missed a change, having not been given a screen test early on.
