Marvel fans looking forward to Tom Hiddleston's quotable lines in the realm of "I am Loki, of Asgard. And I am burdened with glorious purpose," will have to settle for them in the Thor sequel and not in the upcoming Avengers 2. In a podcast interview with Empire Magazine, Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and its developing sequel, addresses expectations of the long-awaited sequel and suggests that Loki will not make an appearance.
"Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for [a quim moment]." Whedon here is referring to the fan favorite scenes when the behemoth Bruce Banner slams the hell out of the nefarious Loki, and to a separate discourse between Loki and the Black Widow, during which he refers to her as a "mewling quim" (a highly offensive piece of British slang). "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."
While we should expect appearances by Thaos, Quicksilver, and The Scarlet Witch, Whedon has revealed that Loki won't be a part of the plot at all. The character isn't gone for good, however: Thor's nemesis brother will have a major role in Thor: The Dark World in theaters this fall.
