Tom Hiddleston uploaded his very first Instagram photo on Tuesday of this week, showing off his fresh Loki garbs as filming began on Thor: Ragnarok, which will be out this year.

It’s always good to see your friend make the next great social media leap. And as we said earlier, Tom Hiddleston and Robert Downey Jr. are real life good pals. So much so that soon after Hiddleston’s upload, Downey Jr. did what all good mates do – he took the mick out of his friend.

“Join me in welcoming the biggest T. Stark fan of them all to Instagram! @twhiddleston” Downey Jr. wrote.
