Tom Hiddleston was asked late last year, just weeks after Thor: The Dark World wrapped filming, would he return as Marvel’s God of Mischief for a fourth time in Joss Whedon’s 2015 follow-up to The Avengers. Responding then that he hadn’t talked with the filmmaker about the possibility, during tonight’s Jameson Empire Awards, the British actor indicated he now knows whether Loki will go up against his step-brother, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes yet again.
Well of course Loki will appear in Avengers 2 even if he is not the primary bad guy, or a bad guy at all. There’s just no way he’s not appearing. That’s my take and I’m calling it. How big of a part he’ll play is beyond my guess at the moment, but mark my words, he will be in the film in some capacity.
