SDCC Tom Hiddleston Loki Marvel Studios Panel

Loki’s questionable appearance in The Avengers: Age Of Ulton has become somewhat of a he said she said story. First, director Joss Whedon said that Tom Hiddleston would not return to reprise his role as the villain everyone hates to love in the sequel. During the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige made a vague statement implying that we could see him again in some sort of capacity.

So the actor himself has put an end to all of this by confirming that he will not be back for the sequel. Hit the jump for more on what he said.

Entertainment Weekly was able to obtain a few quotes from Hiddleston commenting on his character and his absence in the next Avengers film:

“[Loki’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.”

As much as we all love to hate Loki, I can appreciate the fact that both Hiddleston and Whedon know when to bow out, and give the screen time to a new villain. But he does have a point that even if he were to come back, it would only feel like they would be repeating themselves from a narrative standpoint.

Hiddleston added:

“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.”

Don’t worry Loki fans, the character isn’t going away any time soon. You will be able to see him again in Thor: The Dark World. Remember, no one really stays dead in the comic book world. Besides, Feige did say that “We think Loki could be the big bad for us, for a long time.”

So what do you think? Is it a good thing that Loki isn’t back for more? Should we see him face The Avengers in future films?
