Looks like fans of Marvel's God of Mischief won't be seeing their favorite trickster back for The Avengers 2.
During his guesting at the Empire Podcast and reported via a post in Bleeding Cool, Joss Whedon confirmed and silenced the persisting rumors that fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would see the return of Tom Hiddleston as "Loki" for the sequel to the 2012 superhero team blockbuster movie, where he played the main antagonist for the film.
Lifted from the podcast and article, Whedon remarked:
"Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment [in Avengers 2] and you’ll be looking for quim. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back. Not as an insult, it’s just a nice word."
Well, there you have it. No Loki for The Avengers 2. At least he'll be coming back for Thor: The Dark World. For more info, read more from the source post at Bleeding Cool.
