This is a common bit of commentary on the film. And I think I read somewhere that JJ Abrams even said he should've taken it out b/c it didn't serve any narrative purpose. (Which it didn't.) The scene would've worked just fine w/o actively showing us Marcus' underwear.The only thing that spoils this film slightly is the scene where Carol Marcus strips to her underwear, for no other reason than to titillate male viewers and offend female ones. It's a sexist moment that should really have been cut.
