Fact: if Tumblr existed back in 1987, 30% of the images would have been images of then teen heartthrob James Spader looking dreamy. Or menacing. That was kind of his thing.

It’s been just a couple of weeks since we found out that the man who would one day become Robert California is headed to 2015’s “The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron” as its android menace. With its villain in place, we’re still waiting on word of who will play his creator, genius scientist Hank Pym/AKA Ant Man, who will be featured in the Simon Pegg-directed movie of the same name.

“Avengers” and “Thor” villain Hiddleston believes that the actor will “be able to play very interesting tennis with Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo.

He has this piece of advice from one villain to another: “I say don’t try to belittle the Hulk in any way.”

Hiddleston will be returning to the role of Loki in “Thor 2: The Dark World” on November 8.
