Will Loki Return In Avengers 2? Tom Hiddleston Tells All

So if you're an Avengers fan you've probably been wondering whether or not Loki will make a return in the Avengers sequel. Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki spoke to Entertainment Weekly and ended the speculation.

“He’s not in it,” Hiddleston said. “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.”

“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," Hiddleston explains. "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.”

Sorry to disappoint, but don't get too sad about this. Loki is mainly featured in Thor: The Dark World, which will launch in theaters this fall.

Hiddleston commented, “Oh, I’ve got plenty to do in Thor [2], believe me. A lot of new stuff. It’s a new iteration of the character. It’s a new development. Another trick, another poker game for the god of mischief. And he plays it well.”

Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters Nov. 8, while The Avengers: Age of Ultron debuts May 1, 2015
