Fingers crossed for deleted scenes.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is already tearing up the box office and fans are no doubt thrilled to once again see so many of their favorite superheroes in the same place, but a new interview with director Joss Whedon reveals that one beloved character was never able to make his way from the cutting room floor: Loki.
Speaking with MTV, Whedon admits that early chatter about actor Tom Hiddleston appearing as Thor’s troubled brother in the newest Avengers romp wasn’t incorrect, but his appearance just didn’t fit with the rest of the film.
“We did shoot something, and it didn’t play,” Whedon explains. “The movie has so much and 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 to, you know, it was like now there are too many voices in the chorus.”
Unfortunate as the decision to axe Loki’s scenes is, it doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t get to see the horned hero’s part—this is the age of Blu-ray, after all, so you can bet that Hiddleston’s unseen work will be a top candidate for the “deleted scenes” reel.
