No matter how many new characters enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the years to come, it's hard to imagine anyone (other than perhaps Benedict Cumberbatch) challenging Tom Hiddleston's title of God of Impressions.

The release of Avengers: Infinity War last week meant numerous Marvel stars made the rounds on the film's press tour, and even now — three days after the film started making all the money in the world — we're still seeing amusing little tidbits leak out. Marvel press tours are always delightful for different reasons, but any one involving Hiddleston is bound to include at least one memorable impression, and he didn't disappoint when it came to Infinity War.

In a new interview clip from BBC Radio 1, Hiddleston, Letitia Wright (Shuri), and Sebastian Stan (Bucky) were asked to discuss their favorite moments from throughout the MCU. Hiddleston singled out Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Black Panther as two particularly fun theatrical experiences he'd had, which prompted Wright to bring up how much she'd enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok, particularly the character of Korg (played by the film's director, Taika Waititi).

Hiddleston is a self-confessed nerd when it comes to both memorized movie scenes and memorized voices, and since he spent a lot of time with both the finished film and with the character of Korg through the making of the film, he was able to effortlessly launch into a Korg impression. Check it out at about the 2:15 mark.

Granted, it's not a particularly lengthy impression, but it's fun enough that we'd love to hear Hiddleston do more. Imagine sitting across from Tom Hiddleston and he suddenly asks you if you want to jump on that spaceship and get outta here? 

The God of Impressions retains his crown. Your move, Cumberbatch.
