Los Angeles: Actor Tom Hiddleston reportedly will not be reprising his role as Loki in Joss Whedon`s `The Avengers` sequel.

The 32-year-old 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, reported Empire magazine.

"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," Whedon said.

Hiddleston`s 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.
