Joss Whedon Reveals What 'Loki''s Scene In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Consisted Of

Joss Whedon talks in detail here about his fight to get Tom Hiddleston's Loki into Avengers: Age of Ultron, and even goes on to reveal what the scene would have consisted of and where in the sequel it would have appeared. It contained a pretty interesting tie to Thor: The Dark World...

Talking on the Avengers: Age of Ultron Empire Spoiler Podcast, Joss Whedon has revealed what exactly Loki's cut scene from the sequel involved. When he revealed that Tom Hiddleston's cameo had been cut from the movie, it sounded a lot like a decision made by Marvel, and Whedon's plan was for the God of Mischief to show up in the second part of the hallucination caused by Wanda.
 
"He’s so important to the mythos, and they’re like, 'We can’t get Tom. We can’t make a deal," Whedon said of his initial struggles to get Hiddleston into Avengers: Age of Ultron. "You can have Idris!' I was like, 'Oh, I love Idris! This is great!' And then I talked to Tom, saying, 'Just so you know, I feel bad not telling you, and I would never pressure you, but I really feel like it would be great if you could do this...' And they’re like, 'But we already have Idris!' And again, I had no problem there. Everybody’s in!" It doesn't sound like the studio were that keen on having to pay Hiddleston to reprise the role, but they gave in to Whedon in the end, and the scene sounds great!
 
"We even had a little reference to the fact that he’s taken the throne, which was Tom doing his Anthony Hopkins impression when Thor says, 'Oh, what would father say?' Then Tom does his Hopkins impression, and Thor’s like, 'That is uncanny!' It’s sort of like his subconscious is telling him that Loki was imitating his father. But he would never make that connection." That sounds very interesting, and you have to wonder why it was ever cut. After his surprise return at the end of Thor: The Dark World, perhaps Marvel would just prefer to keep fans guessing until Thor: Ragnarok? Either way, here's hoping this ends up as a deleted scene on the Blu-ray. Thoughts?
