Things We Saw Today: Chris Hemsworth Is Excited for Audiences to See His Butt in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’

Thor stands before Zeus, chained and naked.

There’s lots of reasons to be excited for next month’s Thor: Love and Thunder. There’s the return of Taika Waititi after his hilarious Thor: Ragnarok revitalized the franchise. There’s Natalie Portman and her arms. There’s Tessa Thompson as the new King of New Asgard. There’s Korg and Miek. But fans of Chris Hemsworth are excited to see Thor bare his butt, which was teased in the trailer. We see Thor standing before Zeus (Russell Crowe) who flicks his clothes off, revealing his butt. Look, it’s been a hard week on top of a hard few years: just let us have this.

Hemsworth discussed baring it all on the Love and Thunder red carpet, saying “It was 10 years in the making that scene — kind of a dream of mine, … The first time I played Thor I took my shirt off and I thought, ‘You know what’s gonna sweeten this…  a decade from now it’s all gonna come off.”

Waititi seconded Hemsworth’s enthusiasm, saying “I feel like we had all talked about it, … We had talked about, ‘Yeah, we gotta show off this body.’ My whole thing was like, Chris works so hard, you’ve gotta show it off. Don’t cover it up with all these suits and the cape and stuff, it’s not fair!”

A thirsty world thanks you, gentlemen.
