Remember that really weird scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron where Thor was thrashing around in the water while Dr. Selvig looked on like some kind of weirdo?  Watch the deleted scene, that clarifies a lot.

According to Joss Whedon, the scene originally didn’t play well with test audiences, so the scene was trimmed down to make absolutely no sense for the rest of the world. Which proves A) test audiences are mostly moronic, and B) why would anyone want to trim down a scene that features Chris Hemsworth shirtless and wet?

Too bad there won’t be a director’s cut of Avengers: Age of Ultron as no one wants a four hour movie that is actually enjoyable.

    Sigh. Stupid test audiences.
    Everyone knows it’s always more shirtless Thor, not less!

      I’m sure it was all the ruined theater seats this scene caused really that forced the change.

    Am I the only one that thinks no further explanation was necessary?
