Which character did Joss Whedon cut out of Avengers: Age of Ultron?

05.01.2015

If you've seen AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON you know that the film is filled to the brim with heroes and villains both new and old, however there was one fan-favourite character who didn't make it to the final cut. Last winter Idris Elba informed us that both himself and Tom Hiddleston would have roles in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON; while Idris did put in an appearance, the god of mischief was nowhere to be found.

Joss Whedon spoke with MTV who they asked the writer/director what had happened with Hiddleston's cameo:

Tom is not in the movie… Idris misspoke… twice. We did shoot something and it didn’t play. The movie has so much, is so filled and we didn’t want it to feel overstuffed. I really wanted to have Loki in it but I understood the decision, ‘Now there are too many voices in the chorus.’ At some point the embarrassment of riches is actually embarrassing.

Given the wealth of characters we did get in the film, Loki's absence didn't bother me. It's possible the scene may wind up on the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Blu-ray release, which is said to be an extended edition with an alternate ending, or re-purposed somehow for THOR: RAGNAROK.

Once you've seen AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON don't forget to head on over here and let us know what you thought of the film!

Thank Odin he wasn't

The first Avengers movie needed a strong villain. At least we got it the 2nd time with Ultron.

I suppose that originally Whedon wanted to keep his appearance... low key.

I know, right? It's an overused joke but I just can't help myself.

I'm glad he kept in the bit where one of the strong female characters had a romance.

I didn't even notice or care...

The movie was so well done that I didn't even notice Loki wasn't really even mentioned and I didn't miss him one second. He had a great run with two Thor movies and Avengers but I am glad they kept the villain count to a minimum instead of having two big bad guys and their two mutant buddies.

Loki would have been too much. This film already had too much going on in terms of character, Loki only would have added to that.

Isn't that pretty much what Whedon said, just worded differently?

Declining by degrees

I remember when Joblo was the first movie news site I checked every day.
Now, we've got clickbait headlines (Loki. The answer is Loki.) and 5 of the last 10 articles are categorized as "Hottie News."
Sick o' dis drivel.

I agree. I actually just turned off the Hottie News a couple hours ago, because I was tired of cock-teases on a movie news sight. Real porn is just as easy to find Joblo...

I agree the movie hotties thing is weird, but there's a way to turn it off. And, had this headline been "joss whedon explains why Loki wasn't in age of ultron", people would have freaked out complaining about "spoilers"

Really excited to see how Thor: Ragnarok plays out after the events in this film. And I do hope we get to see Hawkeye and Loki fight one another in Infinity Wars after Loki had brainwashed him in the first Avengers film.

I agree. I've long thought loki's going to have a big part to play in infinity wars. He's the only one who has a connection with the avengers and Thanos and seeing Hawkeye get revenge would be sweet.
