Apparently some big comic-book movie opened last weekend — The Avengers? Which has nothing to do with Mr. Steed and Emma Peel now? WTFrock? But our boy Tom Hiddleston plays Loki in this new flick, and some people are into that. But I’m more into his appearances in historical costume movies and TV series from Austen to Shakespeare. Thus, it’s Man Candy Monday time!
