Director Taika Waititi has revealed actor Russell Crowe's scenes in "Thor: Love and Thunder" were shot twice because of his accent.

The 46-year-old director shared his idea was Crowe's character, named Zeus, would speak in a British accent. However, the actor wanted to keep his Greek accent. Eventually, the director ended up filming both the accents and decided to keep the Greek one in the flick.

"We actually talked at length about the accent," Waititi told Insider in an interview published Monday. "We wondered if someone did a Greek accent of a Greek god, is it going to be a farce? Will it be too silly? And Russell was very much wanting it to be Greek."

Waititi also shared he thought people would relate with Zeus' character if he spoke in a British accent similar to Laurence Olivier's 1981 movie, "Clash of the Titans."

"But I wasn't sure, so we ended up doing two versions of every take with Russell. One in a Greek accent and then another in a British accent. Because I felt people would think Zeus would sound British like Laurence Olivier in 'Clash of the Titans.'"

However, the director soon realized it might be offensive to Greeks if Zeus would have a British accent.

"But then I realized in post that it's actually more offensive to the Greeks to have Zeus sound like he's British. And test audiences loved the Greek accent. I'm really happy with it," he added. "But, yeah, he had to do every take once in the Greek accent and once with a British accent because I couldn't make up my mind. But Russell was right all along."

"Thor: Love and Thunder" was released in theaters on July 8. It received 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 7 rating on IMDb, so far.

The flick also stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Matt Damon, Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Melissa McCarthy and Pom Klementieff.

Ahead of the movie release, Waititi also teased the ending of the movie.

"The end of this film is so cool, so satisfying and so unexpected for this character," the director said. "I’d like to exit before an audience says, ‘We’re sick of you'... But if we come up with an idea that’s surprising and new to an audience."
