Chris Hemsworth Questioned Going Shirtless For Scene In THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Revealing whose idea it was, Chris Hemsworth tells MTV News about an additional scene that required him to bare his torso, even though he had to ask 'why,' "without sounding like an idiot." Check it out!

Special thanks to Slumcat for the heads up

According to MTV News, there's a scene close the beginning of Thor: The Dark World that sees the God of Thunder "reflect on a successful battle with a quick splash of water on his bare torso." When Chris Hemsworth was asked about the sure fangirl pleaser, he revealed the idea actually came from The Avengers director Joss Whedon. "That kind of came from Joss actually. He just said that there needed to be something romantic in there," Hemsworth said. "Then he said, 'Chris, get your shirt off.' I said, 'Well, I don't know. What's the why? What are we doing?' The justification was that it was him coming home from battle, washing blood off his hands. It is what it is. How to weigh into that without sounding like an idiot?" What do you think?

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. It opens in theaters November 8, 2013.

Is there something you want to tell us, Joss?
CrimsonFlash - 10/26/2013, 6:43 AM
Haha chopper Joss in and all he says is "pop that shirt off" Boom blockbuster.
gambgel - 10/26/2013, 6:44 AM

I hate that saying: "it is what it is"
Also " the end of the day" is dumb too.

Well, at the end of the day, it is what it is.

Fangirls= $$$ for Marvel

MCU PHASE 2 BABY!!! DCU isn't even a third of the way done with their Phase one....AWKWARD
SpectacularJoSh - 10/26/2013, 6:57 AM
As long as this shit doesn't become some fagget shit like Twilight...I'm okay-ish with it. But that scene right there sounds pointless and retarded. At least Hemsworth questioned it...problem is he ended up doing it any way. Whatever, I lost all interest in this when the Cap2 trailer came out.
TheVirgin - 10/26/2013, 6:58 AM
A lot of women want to make babies with him, even younger ones.
GoILL - 10/26/2013, 7:14 AM
I guess it's safe to assume grif won't be at the midnight screening for Thor:TDW.
MrCBM56 - 10/26/2013, 7:14 AM
Joss really wanted to see him shirtless. Nasty bastard.
DioFoRio - 10/26/2013, 7:15 AM
you should be happy MrMegaDeath...get the blood pumping in that oversized clit you call a penis when that scene comes on. LOL
TheGambitFreak - 10/26/2013, 7:15 AM
If it's a nude Thor you want to show on screen, don't make some piss poor "Blood cleansing" excuse, have Thor [frick]ing whores in a brothel like he did in Jason Aaron's God of Thunder.
smell - 10/26/2013, 7:16 AM
Thorn = Thor porn, joss knows what he wants when making this stuff, bet Cap will get his shirt off as well. It's never the women in these films Disney's gay.
Danbojohnj - 10/26/2013, 7:16 AM
Women need to realise we are not pieces of meat.
DioFoRio - 10/26/2013, 7:17 AM
Avoid this crew if you see them at the theater for Thor...Head to toe in stinky laytex and no smiles..this crew will be dissapointed with the laughs and skin.LOL

MrReese - 10/26/2013, 7:17 AM
That shit is hilarious!
Kingdork - 10/26/2013, 7:34 AM
@smell - You mean like Pepper, Maya and a bunch of whores in the mansion in Iron Man 3?
SCURVYDOG619 - 10/26/2013, 7:35 AM
Was Natalie Portman on set for this?

Because I remember the ET interview from the first Thor movie,and it SURE looked like she wanted to 'hold Mjolnir....'
NightmareB4 - 10/26/2013, 7:47 AM
That could've been a single post. Don't double post.
RorMachine - 10/26/2013, 7:49 AM's a really gratuitous scene actually. But [frick] it, I guess the ladies need a bit of eye candy too.
TheYoungMan - 10/26/2013, 8:03 AM
"you should be happy MrMegaDeath...get the blood pumping in that oversized clit you call a penis when that scene comes on. LOL"

jcfrommars9 - 10/26/2013, 8:18 AM
I guess Whedon didn't read the fine print that only guys can have gratuitous eye candy in their movies.

WYLEEJAY - 10/26/2013, 8:21 AM
^so......did Mantinium finally figure out how to turn off his caps lock?
WYLEEJAY - 10/26/2013, 8:22 AM
That was meant for Mr megadeath. Aka Mantinium.

To get the women into the theater would be the better explanation. That would explain Thor Life size standees I've seen at different women's clothing stores the other day at the mall!

From what I've seen, they already have women in the theater. At my job, some of the women in my department wear Thor shirts and one even has an old school Avengers lunchbox that she brings everyday. They're big fans of The Avengers and most of them are going to see Thor: The Dark World when it comes out.
gambgel - 10/26/2013, 8:47 AM
that Man of Steel scene wasnt even a romanticc scene.

do you actually know what romanticc means? lol
Ramiel - 10/26/2013, 8:51 AM
Most CBMs have their heros shirtless in a scene or two e.g. Spider-Man, Wolverine, Batman Begins, MOS, Thor, Captain America:TFA, etc.
ruadh - 10/26/2013, 8:54 AM
So I'm guessing in the next couple months, things will come out about Cap 2 that will make people forget how excited they were about the trailer, and start spitting venom on it as well.
Ramiel - 10/26/2013, 8:55 AM

Thor shirtless in TDW isn't a romantic scene since he is cleaning himself after a battle. It's "romantic" as in something to please the lady viewers like the shirtless scene in MOS.
Ramiel - 10/26/2013, 8:59 AM

Have you seen Batman Begins? There's a couple of scenes where Bruce is shirtless. Here's one scene where Alfred likes what he

JoJo1982 - 10/26/2013, 9:07 AM
I guess GotG is going to have romantics scenes too cause you Starlord and Drax shirtless too lol
JoJo1982 - 10/26/2013, 9:10 AM
I guess Bane was going to have a romantic rape scene with Commissioner Gordon, but Gordon said [frick] that and left
CherryBomb - 10/26/2013, 9:12 AM
Yes yes.
More shirtless Chris please.
ALmazing - 10/26/2013, 9:13 AM
Gratuitous male nip slip is a common thing in any movie that has muscular lead. Almost all superhero movies have had it ,even DC movies.
rocky - 10/26/2013, 9:15 AM
I hope he wasn't crying as he was stripping off his shirt
ThePowerCosmic - 10/26/2013, 9:15 AM
Have you guys ever read a Thor comic? His shirt is off all the time, and gets it on with Sif constantly! Fricken trolls....go watch your shitty MOS failure.
ALmazing - 10/26/2013, 9:19 AM
@JoJo1982, Bane did look a like he was ready for some S&M action in that scene. Gordon must have been familiar with "The Gimp" from Pulp Fiction.
