Details for The Avengers 2 are few and far between, but this latest piece of information will likely upset many fans. Writer-director Joss Whedon has confirmed with the Empire Movie Podcast that Tom Hiddleston will not reprise his role as Loki in the upcoming sequel.

When initially asked about his progress on the movie, Whedon gave a similar answer to what we've heard for some time: "I've turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody's very much on board with the exact movie I'm trying to make which is what worked the first time."

But when asked about a specific moment from the first film featuring Loki, Whedon became the bearer of bad news: "Immitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things."

How this plays into the events of the upcoming Thor: The Dark World remains to be seen, but if you recall from the trailer, Thor does promise to kill Loki when he betrays him. Any theories on why Loki will be absent from the upcoming sequel?

Whedon also spoke about production on the upcoming "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.EL.D."

"We're building the next episodes, we start shooting again in July."

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."  is set to air this fall on ABC and Marvel's The Avengers 2 is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015.
