Tom Hiddleston On Loki's Absence In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Hoping for a Loki/Ultron team-up? Think again! Talking more about his surprise appearance at this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, Tom Hiddleston says that it's "great" for The Avengers: Age of Ultron that the team will be getting a new villain to face off against.

By Josh Wilding - 7/26/2013







Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

If Rhodey not gonna be in it, I think he needs to be mentioned... It only seems right that Loki may be referenced in the movie too (especially if Thor's look is altered after his next movie.
DukeAcureds - 7/26/2013, 6:11 AM
Rhodey and Loki?!?! This film has no Pym!! Unless Ultron's from another timeline, then this film can fvck itself in it's own face! Fvck this piece of shit.
(of course, I'm gonna be there opening night and I can't wait to pre-order the DVD, but that's beside the point).
beane2099 - 7/26/2013, 6:16 AM
At the end of Iron Man 3 I got the feeling that he removed the Extremis from Pepper.
knocturnalzen10 - 7/26/2013, 6:18 AM
hero's should actually die in this film u can't have ultron running regardless of which version he is an no one gets clipped
SpectacularJoShFest - 7/26/2013, 6:20 AM
I agrif....see what I did there...agree...with...grif...okay,I suck and my jokes are lame...any ways, yeah, I don't think Loki should be in all the MCU movies any way, so I'm okay with him not being in Age of Ultron just for the sake of it.And [frick]ing get War Machine for Avengers 2...I'd hate to see MARVEL using Rhodey in Avengers 3 just because Downey Jr maybe won't be reprising his role after Avengers 2,that'd be insulting.
marvel72 - 7/26/2013, 6:20 AM
loki should just be in thor movies for now.

@ levitikuz

wasn't pepper cured at the end of iron man 3,it was mentioned if not shown.
beane2099 - 7/26/2013, 6:21 AM
For those that were upset that Stark didn't wear the Iron Man armor that much you might be even less happy with Avengers 2. If Ultron turns out to be a corrupted Jarvis Tony's probably not going to be able to wear his armor for a while till he "Jarvis proofs" it. Even if it isn't a corrupted Jarvis, Ultron is an artificial intelligence and all that. So either way, I don't think he'll be donning the armor as much as people would like. That's just a theory though. Personally I don't need to see Stark I'm the armor for the entire movie. But my tastes aren't everybody else's tastes.
MrMartinMarvel - 7/26/2013, 6:26 AM
Why does everyone want everyone to die? "Kill Stark!" "Kill Captain America!" "Kill Hawkeye!" "Kill Nick Fury!" "Kill Black Widow!" I can't take it anymore!!!
beane2099 - 7/26/2013, 6:26 AM
I'm also going on record that I think Thanos may have something to do with Ultron's emergence. Tony did spend some time in the other side of the universe in Avengers and in IM 3 we saw Jarvis was having some problems. He even seemed a bit more human like (he had more of a sense of humor anyways). It's just speculation on my part. Throwing it out there and letting the bait bob up and down in the ineffectual waters.
crawley - 7/26/2013, 6:30 AM
Yes to Rhodey no to Iron Patriot. Put him in the War Machine armor with the guns on the shoulders.

My prediction is Ultron creates Vision/Vin Diesel as a villain but falls in love with Wanda, has a last minute change of heart, and defeats Ultron for the Avengers.

And I'm saying, can we please have Hellcat, US Agent, D-Man, Moondragon, Dr. Druid. Those are my choices.
CoulsonLives - 7/26/2013, 6:35 AM
Can we have Winter Soldier somehow involved in this movie? :D
krabbeypattey - 7/26/2013, 6:36 AM
@MMM

Ultron should kill himself cause he misses his daddy Pym.
IDKwhatToChoose - 7/26/2013, 6:37 AM
@Beane... Tony spent like 30 seconds on the otherside of the universe LOL Jarvis was having connection problems because he was on the other side of the universe LMAO. He wasn't trying to be more human.
UltimateWarrior - 7/26/2013, 6:38 AM
So, in the first Averagers they bastardized the Chitauri, and now for this one they are using the name of a well known event that just happened. Damn these guys grab at anything that can give them a little name recognition.
ABLEE337 - 7/26/2013, 6:46 AM
Never really cared for Loki in the comics but Tom Hiddleston has made him one of my favorite characters from the Marvel Universe.
DukeAcureds - 7/26/2013, 6:49 AM
They should only kill a hero if that hero has had all of his her source material adapted to a suitable degree. Hawkeye doesn't really have that much source material to speak of, so he can die. But if he does it should be the Scarlet Witch that kills him, a la Avengers Dissassembled.
didich - 7/26/2013, 6:49 AM
Fine. Though if Thanos is indeed the villain in Avengers 3, I think it would make sense for Loki to appear, even if only to reference their relationship.
patrat18 - 7/26/2013, 6:50 AM
loki wasen't a villain in avengers, he was a chew toy, the fact that the hole team passed him around and beating the hell out of him was just bull.
Banner - 7/26/2013, 6:50 AM
I love Loki but I trust in Joss so much that I wouldn't mind seeing him in the next installment. Loki's in Thor Dark World so it's not that bad.
druzod2501 - 7/26/2013, 6:50 AM
yeah how 'bout we not turn Loki into the "Lex Luthor" of Marvel?
MitchConner - 7/26/2013, 7:02 AM
Meh...I could care less...
CoulsonLives - 7/26/2013, 7:03 AM
LOL Avengers articles are becoming TASM articles... And you guys wanted Spidey back with Disney... It would be better if they just did a crossover but Sony still has the rights to the movies.
upsidownman - 7/26/2013, 7:11 AM
Could somebody please give Tom Hiddleston another acting job, the poor guy has nothing outside Loki. Love the guy but he's done his time and its time to move on. When your showing up at cons in full costume, its time to find a sitcom.
didich - 7/26/2013, 7:23 AM
@upsidedownman

A quick search through wikipedia will inform you that, not only did Tom Hiddleston start to work way before 2011 (around 2001), even when doing Thor/Marvel films Hiddleston has been able to continue pursuing his dream and continue working in other films.

In 2013, for example, he's got two other movies besides The Dark World.

The guy loves his work and loves his character... What is wrong with that? He's got lot of other stuff to do if he wants, he went to the convention because he's simply a fan, much like a lot of people working on those films.
beane2099 - 7/26/2013, 7:25 AM
@ IDK

Like I said, just speculation. Fiege did say in an interview that Thanos' influence would be felt in A2. I'm just connecting dots. Just cause he was there 30 seconds don't mean a virus couldn't have uploaded to his armor or something else couldn't have attached itself to the armor (similar things have happened in the comics). The Chitauri were being controlled by a signal from that ginormous ship (they all "died" when it blew up).

I didn't say Jarvis was TRYING to be more human in IM3. I'm just saying that he did seem a little more personable in his dialogue and such than in previous movies. And I did mention the Jarvis AI was having issues. But whatever. I appreciate your reply nonetheless. I like to debate.
EpitomeofAwesome - 7/26/2013, 7:25 AM
Why would he be in the front row? You have to almost break your neck looking up at the screen
eisfresh - 7/26/2013, 7:40 AM
They are going to have to mention Loki in A2 due to the fact that Thor suffers a severe injury because of Loki. I think this injury to Thor will have some affect on the avengers sequel
JettJagguarrr - 7/26/2013, 7:46 AM
Loki shall return as the head Antagonist as usual with shifty deeds at hand.
WhiteBolt - 7/26/2013, 7:59 AM
I have a feeling that Loki dies in Thor: TDW.
gmoney0505 - 7/26/2013, 8:09 AM
Hopefully this new villain is an actual threat and can faceoff with the team unlike Loki and that alien army who just was a punching bag waiting to get hit by the next Avenger.

I like Hiddleson but Loki needs to just stay in Thor world.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/26/2013, 8:19 AM
Thank God. So sick of him
Cartoon22 - 7/26/2013, 8:24 AM
Loki/Tom hiddleston is the best!
StrangerX - 7/26/2013, 8:28 AM
I'm looking forward to a less predictable story than the first avengers
DruDox19 - 7/26/2013, 8:32 AM
MArvel just calm down when it comes to Loki he isnt even the Magnificent Bastard that he should be ,unfortunate IMO Also Ultron is cool even though i wanted i dont know Kang the Conquer but he cant happen cause its likely fox has rights to that villain for sure.

Hell if they did a WW very well with Circe we would have ranpent fanboys justifying Circes actions lol ( i always considered her DCs Loki just not popular enough because WW writers dont really GET GREEK MYTHOLOGY AT ALL AND HOW MASSIVE IT IS!!!!!!! Anyways thats a rant for another time. Don any of you guys think Loki met Dormammu cause i think he did meet Dormammu IMO
ShieldSlinger - 7/26/2013, 8:33 AM
Kill everyone in this movie. Have Ultron win. In the sequel, Batman, the Lone Ranger, and that paranormal investigator couple from the Conjuring defeat him.
JDUKE25 - 7/26/2013, 8:41 AM
I'm perfectly fine with there being no Loki.
exe - 7/26/2013, 8:41 AM
Jarvis should be an Avenger since he pretty much did everything for Stark.

Jarvis can kick Ultron's lame robotic ass.
ninjahulk - 7/26/2013, 8:42 AM
Why the hell will Loki be in Age of Ultron like really it will be stupid [frick]ing Ultron kill loki.

And i see where they going at with this Avengers 2 Ultron is from the future and went back in to time kill the avengers they don't understand why he here.

To me they just might be a safe move also they might be taking pilot from age of Ultron book series just came out this year and some of the old story.
That be smart safe move Marvel is playing there wild card safe.
CherryBomb - 7/26/2013, 8:48 AM

I hope Loki really doesn't return.
I adore Tom Hiddleston but Loki has been defeated twice now and that's enough for me , they can move on to new enemies.
