Tom Hiddleston Won't Be Back as Loki in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

We got the chance to speak to the charming and charismatic Tom Hiddleston at Comic Con last week. He of course plays Loki, the evil half-brother of Thor. Hiddleston completely shines as the character on the big-screen as seen in "Thor" and "The Avengers", as well as the upcoming sequel "Thor: The Dark World". Loki fans will be sad to know however, that he will not be making an appearance in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron".

We of course were alerted to this fact back in June from Whedon. This definitely makes us wonder what Loki's fate will be in the "Thor" sequel. On his absence from the next "Avengers" film, Hiddleston said the following:

"I think it's great for the film that I'm not going to be in it. Because I'm so proud of the first one. Joss and I, there were so many things that we both love about it and in a way if I was in it we'd be chasing those moments, we'd be chasing that again. The Avengers need a new bad guy to fight, they need new things to do...but for the film I'll be waving them off and saying 'Good luck, have fun' and I'll be in the front row when it comes out."

Are you bummed Loki won't be in the "Avengers" sequel? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Thor: The Dark World" will open in AMC Theatres on November 8th.

"Avengers: The Age of Ultron" will open in AMC Theatres on May 1st, 2015.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
