Chuck’s Zachari Levi in Thor 2?

June 11th, 2012 by Kelly Comments

Looks like Asgard is gaining a new protector – or at least a new version of one.

Word on the Bifrost is that Fandral of the Warriors Three, is going to be recast in the form of Chuck’s Zachari Levi (above left) due to original actor, Josh Dallas (above right) being tied up with Once Upon A Time.
The news is particularly ironic, as Levi was originally gunning for the role of Fandral for Thor, but was too tied up in his commitments with Chuck to take up the part originally. Although no dotted lines have been signed yet, his involvement is looking very likely.
All of the other original cast seems to be returning to join Alan Taylor who will be at the helm of this godly sequel. Apparently, this time round we’ll be getting a much darker version of Asgard.

Kelly has been a Star Wars enthusiast since birth and while new to the Marvel and DC Universes, laps them up faster than Odin steals Jotun babies. In her spare time she enjoys marathon-watching Buffy, rereading old books, dancing quite well, acting the lig, singing quite badly and formulating devious plans for world domination over some Shakespeare and a cuppa. If she isn't writing something abstract for her own enjoyment, or an article for Following the Nerd, she can be found trooping with the Emerald Garrison or storming the Death Star (sometimes both). She loves strawberries but hates bananas and thinks Loki just needs a hug. Her chosen superpower would be flying, and she thinks daffodils are ugly. She's also a Malteser - natural blonde but dyed brunette, though that's not really relevant, is it?
