Chris Hemsworth didn’t want to go shirtless in Thor: The Dark World

Chris Hemsworth took issue with Joss Whedon during the production of 'Thor: The Dark World' when the 'Avengers' director asked him to remove his shirt for a scene.

Hemsworth has admitted that he wanted to keep wrapped up during the sequel, and when it came to filming the scantily clad scene in question he made sure to voice his discontent.

The Australian actor explained his vexation to MTV, "That [scene] kind of came from Joss actually. He just said that there needed to be something romantic in there. Then he said, 'Chris, get your shirt off.' I said, 'Well, I don't know. What's the why? What are we doing?'"

However, Hemsworth admitted that, in the end, Whedon was able to convince him to remove his garments, stating, "The justification was that it was him coming home from battle, washing blood off his hands. It is what it is. How to weight into that without sounding like an idiot?"

Like most moviegoers, I'm not too intrigued by Hemsworth's revelation, as there are numerous other issues with the Marvel epic that I will be focusing my attention on.

These include Loki and Thor's dynamic, Anthony Hopkin's bodacious beard and whether or not Kat Denning's Darcy Lewis is as annoying as she was in the original.

Whedon clearly understands that the Aussie's bulging torso has a huge appeal to a different contingent of film fans who might not be quite as concerned with 'Thor: The Dark World's' cinematic values as others.

And let's face it, sex sells and Hemsworth is about as sexy as any human being can be so Marvel were always going to go down any possible avenue in their attempts to try and appeal to a newer audience. I know that it's cynical but I'm just being honest.

Either way, all you can really do is respectfully tip your hat at Hemsworth because of his impressive body, all while instinctively sucking in your own gargantuan gut. That might just be me.

At the premiere of the 'Thor' sequel in London's Leicester Square last week, the 30-year-old played down his sex symbol status confirming that he is topless for only a small amount of time.

Hemsworth teased, "I'm topless for all of four seconds! Four seconds is fine. "

Are you going to see 'Thor: The Dark World' because Liam Hemsworth is topless for 4 seconds? Do you think it will outshine its predecessor?

Gregory Wakeman is a Marvel movie enthusiast who is slightly concerned how easy it was for Joss Whedon to convince Chris Hemsworth to take off his top.
