Tom Hiddleston who plays Loki in the Marvel 'Avengers' and 'Thor' movies, has clarified why his character was cut off from 'Avengers : Age of Ultron.'

"I was part of the dream sequence for the character of Thor," Tom Hiddleston revealed in an interview with Digital Spy.

"I shot for a day and enjoyed it very much. And then I received a phone call from Basically, Kevin said that in test screenings, audiences had sort of over-emphasized Loki’s role; they thought that Loki was controlling Ultron.

"It was imbalancing people’s expectations. So they said, 'Let's cut it because it's confusing people.'”

In November 2014, Idris Elba who plays Heimdall in Marvel's 'Thor', revealed that he would be starring in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' alongside Hiddleston  and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

In an interview with MTV, writer and director, Joss Whedon spoke on what happened to Loki's expected appearance, saying;

“Tom is not in the movie… Idris misspoke… twice,” Whedon said “We did shoot something and it didn’t play. The movie has so much, is so filled and we didn’t want it to feel overstuffed. I really wanted to have Loki in it but I understood the decision, ‘Now there are too many voices in the chorus.’ At some point the embarrassment of riches is actually embarrassing.”

Hiddleston  is expected to appear in 2017's 'Thor: Ragnarok' and in 2018 and 2019 'Avengers: Infinity War.'
