Robert Downey Jr. trolls Tom Hiddleston on Instagram with ‘Hiddleswift’ gag

Tom Hiddleston joined Instagram Tuesday, but leave it to one of his fellow Marvel co-stars to pull a Loki and respond with some light trolling.

Hiddleston, who’s currently filming Thor: Ragnarok, posted his first photo dressed up as Loki with a simple message: “He’s back!” There’s not much to discern about new details on the costume, but that’s Loki alright—and possibly a sight for fans who missed his presence in the admittedly overstuffed Avengers: Age of Ultron.

He’s back!

On the other hand, Robert Downey Jr., who uses his Instagram account to post plenty of Marvel-related photos and fanart, couldn’t help but rib Hiddleston in welcoming him to Instagram. He used the infamous paparazzi photo of Hiddleston wearing an “I [heart] T.S.” tank top while out with girlfriend Taylor Swift during the peak of Hiddleswift, but he made it all about Tony Stark because of course he did.

Hiddleston has yet to respond to RDJs retort, but we can imagine him continuing the trolling.
