Thor: The Dark World's Hemsworth Questioned Whedon on Why to Go Shirtless

Thor The Dark World ReviewArrow

star Stephen Amell has never been seen in public with a shirt on.

Well, that's not true--but the dude spends an awful lot of time without one on in support of his DC Comics-based series.

It's perhaps interesting to note, then, that Thor: The Dark World beefcake Chris Hemsworth apparently took issue with a directive to have a shirtless scene in the upcoming sequel, and felt strongly enough about it to make sure MTV News knew that the scene wasn't shot without due consideration.

"That [scene] 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?"
