Zachary Levi To Join Thor 2
Chuck star will take over role of Fandral for sequel.
With Thor 2 pushing ahead, there has been a change of cast amongst the returning characters.
Joshua Dallas is unable to reprise his role as Fandral due to other commitments (TV show Once Upon a Time), which has opened the door for Chuck star (Who was ironically unable to take the role in the original due to that show) Zachary Levi. Said to be in advanced talks to take up the role, Levi would be a good fun addition to the cast, which continues to look impressive.
With Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman returning, and Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor behind the camera, we will find out in November next year whether the sequel can carry on the good work of Kenneth Branagh’s original. Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen was recently reported to be in talks to play the villain of the piece.
Thor 2 is set to start filming next month.
