Best shirtless movie scenes of 2013
SINGAPORE — Is it just us, or are the Wolverine’s costumes getting increasingly raunchy as the years go by?
Maybe Marvel Entertainment’s being thrifty — save cloth you know? Or maybe they’ve finally realised that the amount of money women spend on superhero movies is inversely proportional to the amount of clothes Hugh Jackman has on.
Either way, it looks like the hairy hero’s decided to ditch his top for The Wolverine — and we’re not complaining.
Nerds and geeks, you can check out this great infographic about the evolution of Wolverine.
Everyone else, check out our list of this year’s best shirtless movie scenes, so far.
1. HENRY CAVILL (MAN OF STEEL). Obviously, Superman has got to be on this list. We’re still reminiscing about the scene where he rescues a bunch of people from a burning oil rig, falls into the ocean, then ends up on the shore conveniently half-naked. We couldn’t find the scene on YouTube, but this video showing how he trained for his role should keep you plenty occupied: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uJylK2o6ng
2. BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS). We’ll never forgive JJ Abrams for leaving out of the movie this incredible scene showing Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain Khan taking a shower. We’re not sure it would have added anything to the plot, but we sure as heck would have wanted to see it anyway. On loop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm3UD6Jhr48
3. WU CHUN (SAVING GENERAL YANG). Yes, Wu Chun was given a good wallop by Adam Cheng, who plays his father, in one of the opening scenes of the film. But this also means we got to catch a glimpse of his pretty awesome abs. You’ll see a snippet of the scene here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BhzGdMS-cU
4. NICK CHEUNG (UNBEATABLES). Cheung may have won Best Actor for his role as an ex-boxing champion in Unbeatables at the Shanghai International Film Festival, but it’s his body that’s left us truly speechless. There’s also a very, very nice bonus: Eddie Peng. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B01xaxUQ-0c
