Chris called the stripping scene in which Russell Crowe's Zeus flips away his suit a “dream” and said that it was 10 years in the making. In fact, viewers on YouTube replayed the particular scene the most number of times while watching the film's trailer.
Talking about the scene, Chris told Variety in an interview, “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'.”
“I had had that out in ‘Rush’ many years ago. In a Marvel film, it was a very large screen, it was a very big pair of cheeks, and, I don’t know, I had seen it before," he added.
Earlier, Comicbook.com had reported that the trailer video on YouTube shows a notable spike in viewer replays at around 2-minute timestamp that has a blurred Chris naked on screen.
