>>950 Oh, yeah, I agree. CH is never going to have critical acclaim, I don't think. I think he got closest with Rush, but critics praised the movie as a whole more than his performance. Still, he's not even managed to find commercial success outside of Marval - they've all been stinkers/box office poison.
TH has had critical acclaim outside of Marvel, but I think 'the general moving-going public' know him as Loki. And the Loki-lovers are a significant part of his fanbase too. So, despite his ability, he might end up being 'that Loki guy' as a lowest common denominator.
Whispers: I wouldn't mind just seeing a short Loki cameo in Thor 3. I'm okay with him 1) not being in Infinity Wars or 2) having very small parts in IW.
