Video: Joss Whedon talks about dropping Loki from Age of Ultron
Joss Whedon has revealed that Tom Hiddleston's Loki appeared in the original cut of Avengers: Age of Ultron but he had to be dropped from the film.
Idris Elba drew inadvertently revealed last year that he was filming with both Chris Hemsworth and Hiddleston, even though at the time the latter had not been confirmed for the movie.
In the end, the scenes that included Loki were thrown in the bin anyway.
“We did shoot something, but it didn’t play,” Whedon said.
“The movie has so much. It’s so filled. We didn’t want it to feel overstuffed. I really wanted to have Loki in it, but I understood the decision that there were now too many voices in the chorus.”
