Peace Out Loki!: Much to the chagrin of Asgardian villain fans, Marvel’s most wicked Norse god baddie, Loki, won’t be mixing it up with the Hulk and company in the “Avengers” sequel. Tom Hiddleston confirmed the news that director Joss Whedon had previously hinted at. “He’s not in it,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “Here’s the thing: I don’t think there’s anything else Loki could contribute to ‘The Avengers,’ narratively. Joss gave me so many wonderful things to do in that first film that we’d only be trying to repeat ourselves, and probably less well in the second one.” But, before you go and soak up your tears with your homemade Thor cape, Loki fans can rest easy knowing he’ll be back in “Thor: The Dark World,” on November 8.
