One of the most popular elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far has been the delicious evil of Thor’s adopted brother, Loki. As portrayed by English actor Tom Hiddleston, the character wreaked havoc in “Thor” and “The Avengers”, and his lust for power (and ill-conceived alliance with Thanos) ultimately served as the device to finally unite Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
However, it’s looking like the god of mischief will play a far less crucial role in the overall scheme of Marvel’s Phase Two. He’ll appear in this fall’s “Thor: The Dark World” – paying penance for his crimes and possibly seeking some form of redemption – but writer/director Joss Whedon has gone on record saying that Loki will not return in the Avengers sequel. Now that claim looks to be even more official.
In a recent interview Hiddleston confirmed that Loki will not be part of the action in Avengers: Age of Ultron. “He’s not in it. Here’s the thing: I don’t think there’s anything else Loki could contribute to ‘The Avengers,’ narratively. Joss 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.”
Perhaps Loki will confront The Avengers in another film down the line – assuming that his absence in “Age of Ultron” doesn’t imply that the character’s fate is in jeopardy – but in the meantime, Hiddleston is looking forward to continuing his character’s arc in the upcoming “Thor” sequel.
Are you disappointed that Loki will miss out on Avengers: Age of Ultron, or are you glad that Marvel is mixing it up in Phase Two? Let us know in the comments section below.
