Tom Hiddleston, the one thing right with the Thor franchise, may be playing another villain- Sandman. This past week Neil Gaiman has been trying tirelessly to sign the actor. He said that Benedict Cumberbatch was his first choice but would now would love Hiddleston to tackle the role. So it means Joseph Gordon-Levvit, whose career has been silent, will only produce the film and not star in it as we sure he was trying to imply. The cult classic comic book hero (who is not Sand Man but Sandman as there’s a significant difference) taking to the big screen is a huge step that fans have been waiting for for years. They are making sure they get it right, even if it doesn’t have the most momentum. Hiddleston seems like a great choice for the dark hero. He’s an incredibly talented actor who can certainly dig deep into the grotesque. Even though this is a comic book project, I don’t think we should be worried about getting type cast. He’s exploring the possibility of being the hero and not the villain as he’s set for the highly anticipated Kong: Skull Island in 2017 (he’ll also appear in Thor: Ragnorak that same year). If these big budget blockbusters don’t stack up, he’s set up a career for himself in the Indie market and in plays. Next year he’ll star in the beautifully cinematic yet dark Crimson Peak. Tom Hiddleston isn’t going anywhere, in fact he’s soon to be everywhere at one. If he can’t be introverts leader (a position taken by Benedict Cumberbatch) he can at least be the ruler of goths. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
