Joss Whedon Implies Vision Will Not Be in 'Avengers 2'

At the same time, Tom Hiddleston confirms that Loki will not show up in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.

Director Joss Whedon recently talked about his highly-anticipated movie, "Avengers: Age of Ultron", to Total Film magazine (via Comic Book Movie). During the interview, Whedon seemingly tried to clarify reports suggesting that android hero Vision would be featured in the film with Vin Diesel most likely as the depicter.

"We're not going to see [Henry 'Hank'] Pym and all the accoutrements. Ultron is more central to the Avengers as they are. But we will explore the idea of lineage, because he was created by us and we've got to own that," Whedon said. The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator also revealed why Thanos would also not make an appearance in his next project, due out May 2015.

"We have to stay grounded. It's part of what makes the Marvel universe click - their relationship to the real world. It's science-fiction, and Thanos is not out of the mix, but Thanos was never meant to be the next villain. He's always been the overlord of villainy and darkness," he said of the character confirmed to show up in "Guardians of the Galaxy".

Besides Vision, fans have expected Loki to appear in the sequel. However, Whedon revealed last June that it would not happen unfortunately. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom Hiddleston confirmed the sad news.

"[Loki's] not in it. Here's the thing: I don't think there's anything else Loki could contribute to The Avengers, narratively," Hiddleston said. "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."
