Even knowing the artistic temperament of the Taika Waititione did not expect what he was going to laugh seeing Thor: Ragnarök (2017), perhaps the funniest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. For this reason, we are not surprised that the New Zealand director has been in charge of the sequel, Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), nor that, as the trailer shows us, it is used an unexpected nude of the God of Thunder comically.
What could be foreseen, however, are the reactions to stripping an attractive guy like Chris Hemsworth on screen, and the questions about it for the person in charge, who also signs the script. While he participated in promotional events for Lightyear (2022) Taika Waititi explained: “We all knew we wanted to do it very early on. In fact, that it was in the first draft of the script and Chris was also on board.”
And he wanted to continue like this: “I think that, if you have a body like Chris, even he understands that it would not be fair and it would be a waste not to show it. It would be a crime against humanity. So, you have to provide it to the masses.” And before the presentation of Thor: Love and Thunder in Sydney, insisted on it: “You’ve worked so hard on all of this [su cuerpo] that it would be strange not to teach it”. And he finished: “In a commercial sense, I think we could sell a few more tickets!”

“Everyone from the production office and the accounting office showed up that day and just needed to talk to the team members about getting their invoices and time cards. [de trabajo]”, said to jokeon the other hand, that Chris Hemsworth’s nude is such an event on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder that the entire team wanted to witness it. An impossible tone to avoid with this matter, especially if you have the sense of humor of Taika Waititi.

And, speaking of how to cover up, Chris Hemsworth said that he was only wearing “a sock”. But “in one ear”according to Taika Waititi. “That’s his thing. Think of it as a distraction.”
