Tom Hiddleston’s performance is always a highlight in the Marvel movies. But basically, Kevin said – and I’m just going to tell you the truth, because it’s the cleanest way of doing it – in test screenings, audiences had over-emphasized Loki’s role. Indeed, director Joss Whedon has been quite vocal about his tussle to keep certain scenes in his Marvel hit, Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
That means Thor’s dream sequence could have been even more confusing. Because, after a test screening, audiences were left confused by Loki’s conclusion among the cast.
Since Ultron was the main villain, it made no sense to mislead fans by including Loki in a cameo and thus encouraging false expectations. That scene was ultimately dropped for reasons that went unspecified – until now. With the cave, they pointed a gun at the farm’s head and “Give us the cave”. In a civilized way – I respect these guys, but that’s when it got really unpleasant. He’s expected to appear prominently in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok” and in both parts of “Avengers: Infinity War“, slated for 2018 and 2019, respectively. I shot for a day and enjoyed it very much.
Hiddleston wasn’t bitter about his part being trimmed, however.
IB Times said the second ‘Avengers, ‘ like the first one, sets a pedestal role for future movies in the series to shape up the way Marvel wants them to.
You might not be able to catch Loki in Age of Ultron, out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
