Tom Hiddleston Confirms Loki Won't Return for 'Avengers 2'

Tom Hiddleston has confirmed the news that his beloved villain Loki will not be returning for the upcoming film The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“He’s not in it,” the 32-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly. “Here’s the thing: I don’t think there’s anything else Loki could contribute to The Avengers, narratively. Joss [Whedon] gave me so many wonderful things to do in that first film that we’d only be trying to repeat ourselves, and probably less well in the second one.”

“When I think of all the things I loved as a child, for example, Hans Gruber wasn’t in Die Hard 2. And in Indiana Jones, by the time he moved from the Lost Ark to the Temple of Doom, there was a whole new bad guy. I think keeping it fresh and new is good for The Avengers even though it’s a shame for me. And let’s face it, there’s seven or eight of them as it is, and Joss is thinking about adding two more, so the screen’s gonna be a busy place. But I had the time of my life on that film. It was the most fun ever.”

Tom will still return as Loki in the upcoming flick Thor: The Dark World.
