WATCH: Tom Hiddleston: “I wasn’t in Avengers: Age of Ultron because Loki is just too awesome.”

October 6th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Back when Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was shooting, it had been reported that Thor actor Tom Hiddleston was going to be in the Avengers sequel reprising the role as Loki and it became a big deal for Marvel fans everywhere, basically because Loki is so damn awesome.

However, for those who have seen the film at this point know that Loki never made an appearance in the final cut, which was confusing because why cut out such a big Marvel character in one of the biggest films of Phase 2? It left a lot of fans baffled and frustrated.

In a new interview with Digital Spy (below), Hiddleston was asked why Loki was ultimately cut out of the film and said:

“I was part of the dream sequence for Thor in the film. I shot for a day and enjoyed it very much. But in test screenings, audiences had over-emphasized Loki’s role; they thought that Loki was controlling Ultron. It was imbalancing audience’s expectation”

So he was too awesome? Makes sense…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
