Tom Hiddleston Replacing Benedict Cumberbatch

In an amazing confluence of Tumblr masturbation fantasies, Tom Hiddleston will be replacing Benedict Cumberbatch in Guillermo del Toro's gothic ghost story Crimson Peak. Cumberbatch left the movie a few weeks ago for unspecified reasons, and now The Avengers' Hiddleston is stepping in, Legendary Pictures announced. Hiddleston will star alongside Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska — who herself replaced Emma Stone after Stone also dropped out. The best laid plans of Guillermo del Toro, etc., etc.
