THOR, LOVE AND THUNDER: RUSSEII CROWE DID SCENES TWICE FOR ACCENT

Although it might seem obvious that Russell Crowe would speak with a Greek accent in "Thor: Love and Thunder," writer-director Taika Waititi wasn't convinced.

Waititi told Insider that Crowe performed all his scenes twice, once with a Greek accent and once with a British accent.

"We actually talked a lot about the accent," he said.The question was, if someone did the Greek accent of a Greek god, would it be a farce? Would it be too silly?"

Crowe, however, was very much in favor of doing the god with a Greek accent.

 he said.In the 1981 movie based on the Greek myth of Perseus, English actor Laurence Olivier plays Zeus in an English accent. I felt people would think Zeus would sound British like Olivier did in the Greek myth of Perseus.

It was finally time to make a decision during post-production.That's when Waititi realized something.

Having Zeus sound British is actually more offensive to the Greeks, he said.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) seeks the support of Zeus to defeat Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) in "Love and Thunder."

...As a result, Thor does not receive help and Zeus instead flicks his clothes off.

Currently, "Thor: Love and Thunder" is playing in theaters.
