(..) that glorious little moment when Captain America dropped in. Well, it wasn’t really Captain America. Loki’s gift with illusion allows him to present himself however he wants, and during the scene where he and Thor were on their way out of Asgard, Loki had a little fun with this ability, at one point presenting himself as Captain America.

So tight!” He goes on about how he can “feel the righteousness surging,”

As Hiddleston puts it, “I did an impression of Loki in the Captain America costume, and did the whole performance, and then they showed Chris [Evans] my performance on tape. It’s him doing an impression of me doing an impression of him, and it’s brilliant. Brilliant. I think it’s great.
