Marvel MVPs: The Best Movie, Villain, Superhero And More
Best Acting Performance: Tom HiddlestonLike the residents of Stuttgart, we’re all a bunch of mewling quim who kneel before the great and powerful Hiddleston. Even Marvel realized in 2011’s Thor that they held something special in their stable, so Loki became the focal point of The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World and, likely, a third Thor movie (if and when that happens). Read the reviews of Alan Taylor’s sequel. Almost all admit that the movie finally takes flight once Hiddleston’s character is freed from prison and able to banter with Hemsworth’s stoic hero. Their chemistry has been invaluable to the Thor franchise, though Hiddleston’s innate ability to connect on screen with each member of the Avengers in individual scenes helped make Loki such a compelling villain. The joy of Hiddleston’s performance is that he humanizes a god, selling the unpredictability of a double-crossing deity and giving Marvel a stable base of evil on which to build. All other Marvel villains moving forward will be based on the dark charismas and evil charms Hiddleston brings to Loki. Imagine how gloomy, stoic and deathly serious the Marvel Cinematic Universe would look without him.
The Nominees: Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Evans
