Avengers: Age of Ultron originally had a scene featuring Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, as revealed by director Joss Whedon. However, the final version of the film didn’t include the god of mischief. Now Hiddleston has revealed the reason why his character was cut, and mainly it had to do with the test audience and their confusion.

During an interview with Digital Spy, Hiddleston said, “I was part of the dream sequence for the character of Thor, and I shot for a day, enjoyed it very much. Then I received a phone call from Kevin Feige, actually Joss emailed me, basically Kevin said that in test screenings audiences had over-emphasized Loki’s role. So they thought that because I was in it I was controlling Ultron, and that it was imbalancing people’s expectations. So Joss and Kevin were like ‘Let’s cut it because it’s confusing people.’”

Avengers: Age of Ultron is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
