Don’t Look For Loki In Avengers 2
Of course people have a lot of questions about Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch appearing in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers 2, but just as many people have been wondering whether or not Tom Hiddleston would be showing up. Hiddleston has a diehard fanbase, called Hiddlestoners, who are keeping everything crossed for the god of mischief to make a return appearance. Hiddleston has said in several interviews that he’s talked to Whedon about the film but wasn’t really sure if he would be involved in the highly-anticipated sequel or not. It turns out he probably won’t be appearing.
Whedon recently appeared on the Empire podcast to talk about his film Much Ado About Nothing. After covering that movie, he was asked about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Avengers. Whedon didn’t offer up much in the way of new info for S.H.I.E.L.D., but he confirmed they will start filming more episodes in July and he won’t be directing any of them, at least for the foreseeable future. He is throwing the team some script ideas though. Shifting to Avengers, Whedon said the first draft is done, the story is very set, and everyone is on board with what he’s presented. When asked if there would be any naughty words like quim stuck in the script, Whedon dropped this nugget of information:
Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for quim. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back. Not as an insult, it’s just a nice word.
So no Loki. Hiddlestoners may not be happy, but at least they know he has a huge part in Thor: The Dark World. So who will be causing trouble in the sequel? Smart money is on Thanos, but it sounds like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch may do a little damage to the team as well. Whedon touched on their inclusion and reiterated his love for the characters, but he did say one of the things he loves about them is that “sometimes they are evil, sometimes they are good. They were very textured and very different than everybody else in the mix.” When asked how adding the brother/sister duo into the newly formed Avengers family would change the dynamic, Whedon corrected to questioner saying they would be “outside,” seemingly referring to the team. He added “They’re not there to make things easy on the Avengers.” So there you go. Maybe they’ll be hotshot heroes or baddies who eventually come around to the good guys’ side. What do you think about the lack of Loki? Do you think the Maximoff twins will cause big trouble for The Avengers?
