We’ve heard why Joss Whedon ended up cutting the filmed scenes of Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but now Joss has spelled out where and what the sequence would have looked like on the big screen.

During a recent sit down with Empire Spoiler Podcast, Whedon decided to spill the beans on Loki’s involvement in Age of Ultron from casting to filming the scene. He first talked about wanting Loki from the beginning:

He’s so important to the mythos, and they’re like, ‘We can’t get Tom. We can’t make a deal. You can have Idris!’
I was like, ‘Oh, I love Idris! This is great!’ And then I talked to Tom, saying, ‘Just so you know, I feel bad not telling you, and I would never pressure you, but I really feel like it would be great if you could do this…’ And they’re like, ‘But we already have Idris!’ And again, I had no problem there. Everybody’s in!
Whedon was able to convince the studio suits to bring in Hiddleston. What would that scene have looked like? Loki would have appeared in the Thor’s Scarlet Witch induced dream sequence
We even had a little reference to the fact that he’s taken the throne, which was Tom doing his Anthony Hopkins impression when Thor says, ‘Oh, what would father say?’ Then Tom does his Hopkins impression, and Thor’s like, ‘That is uncanny!’ It’s sort of like his subconscious is telling him that Loki was imitating his father. But he would never make that connection.
Whedon himself has said that there is a ton of deleted footage and an alternate ending that will be included in the BlueRay/DVD release. Most of those scenes will end up on the Internet to promote the release date as well as fans posting after they get their hands on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Do you think that the deleted Loki scene would have made any difference in the film, besides the fun nod to fans?
