Los Angeles - Tom Hiddleston won't be in The Avengers sequel.

The actor - who played villainous Asgardian god Loki in the first film - is unlikely to return for the action blockbuster's 2015 sequel, according to director Joss Whedon.

Quizzed about a specific phrase used by the character in last year's The Avengers, he told Empire magazine in an interview: "Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for 'quim'.

"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."

Thor sequel

Hiddleston's mischievous character was first introduced into the Marvel cinematic franchise in 2011's Thor, in which he portrays the brother of the titular hero played by Chris Hemsworth.

Loki then went on to become the main villain in last year's superhero team-up movie, which also starred Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Evans and Captain America and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk.

Loki will feature in Thor sequel Thor: The Dark World later this year, once again antagonising his heroic brother.
