Loki Won’t Return for THE AVENGERS 2

     June 17, 2013


For all the Tom Hiddleston fans who need another Loki fix, you’re going to have to make due with Thor: The Dark World, because the baddie won’t be making a return in The Avengers 2.  Speaking to Empire on their podcast, writer-director Joss Whedon explained, “Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for [a quim moment]. 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.”  Obviously, he’s right—both about the dangers of repeating himself and the quality of the word.  Also, if you want to raise the stakes, it’s best to go with a villain where failure isn’t in his nature.

If you need more Hiddleston in your life, keep an eye out for his upcoming movies Only Lovers Left Alive and Close EnoughThe Avengers 2 opens May 1, 2015.

    Maybe this is just me, but I can’t quite pick up on him flat-out saying Loki won’t be in The Avengers 2. It could certainly be inferred from him saying Loki won’t be there to say those things, but I’m not sure what exactly he’s referring to, as ‘there’ could mean a bunch of different things – on the side of the bad guys – amidst the main conflict – next to the Hulk….

    I’m certainly not trying to disprove this or insinuate that Loki will be in the Avengers sequel, I’m just not entirely sure of the context of what he’s saying.

    Also, side note, what word is he referring to?

      Or you know, after Thor 2 it could very well be that Loki dies or joins the good guys.

    • RiddleThemThis

      I’m not 100% sure but maybe he’s referring to the word “Quim”.

        ah that might be it, thanks

    What is a “quim moment”?

  • alex

    quim means vagina in old english, thats what hes referring to when he called black widow a ‘mewling quim’

  • Yurine

    I’m happy they are giving another villian a chance to shine instead of just using Loki over and over again.

  • Tim

    For the people here that don’t know, he’s referring to the moment where Loki calls Black Widow a “mewling quim”– a derogatory old english term that basicallly translates to “whiny cunt.”
