With Much Ado About Nothing comfortably nestled among the summer blockbusters and indie flicks in theaters, Joss Whedon is turning his attention back to The Avengers 2. Not that the press rounds for Much Ado didn't pry into the upcoming Marvel sequel, but at the U.K. gala premiere of the film, Whedon was asked a number of things about the film.
Perhaps the biggest reveal to come out of the Q&A session was Whedon revealing that Loki would not be appearing in the sequel.
Whedon was asked if there was another humorous Old English word like "quim" in the film. Whedon replied, "Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for quim. No, 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."
Not good news for Tom Hiddleston fans, but The Avengers 2 will be packed with plenty of superheroes from the first film as well as whomever else Whedon drags in from the Phase Two films.
Are you bummed Loki will not be appearing in The Avengers 2?
The Avengers 2 is due in theaters May 1, 2015.

Joss Whedon, The Avengers 2
after severe punishment Loki endured from hulk himself, it's pretty obvious we won't be seeing him.
I feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of teenage girls cried out at once, and then were silent.
It makes sense, at least Loki will be in Thor 2
Not likely to happen here
Sorry wrong guy matt, But yes Loki may be done here in November
Its fine :)
I figured as much. Whedon probably wants to have the spotlight on his new big-bad. Whoever it is. If I had to guess who the villain is, I would put money on the Red Skull because he had to go somewhere after the Tesseract opened that portal and sent him packing in "Captain America: the First Avenger."
This has not come to a surprise to me due to what Wheldon has plans for the sequel but I'm not bummed after all
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
