Speaking on the Empire magazine podcast, Avengers Assemble director Joss Whedon revealed that Loki might not be returning for the 2015 sequel.

“Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for [a quim moment],” said Whedon.

“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.”

Back the truck up a second though, is that he’s “not there to say those things” as its not his purpose, or he’s not there – full stop?
