Zachary Levi Talks More About His Interpretation Of Fandral In THOR 2

The former Chuck star talks a little more at this year's San Diego Comic-Con about his role as Fandral in Thor 2, saying that he hopes that he and the rest of the Warriors Three will have a much bigger role than in the first film.

By Josh Wilding - 7/13/2012
Zachary Levi was Marvel Studios' first choice to play Fandral in Thor, but was forced to turn down the role due to his then commitment to Chuck. When it comes to Thor 2, the tables were turned as Josh Dallas (who played the member of "The Warriors Three" in the Kenneth Branagh movie) was forced to pull out of the sequel because of his role in Once Upon a Time. That means Levi will finally get an opportunity to show us all what we missed out on back in 2010 as he recently confirmed that he has signed on to play the character. Talking at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier today (view the full chat courtesy of Ustream by clicking the link below) the actor has shared his thoughts on what he plans to bring to the role.


"Fandral is a little similar to Flynn Rider [the character he played in animated feature, Tangled] in some ways. So, I'll start there. He's like this lothario. He's like Errol Flynn. He loves ladies, as do I...I'm really looking forward to being able to be a completely different character. He's not British, he's Asgardian, but he speaks like he's from England [Laughs] as some of them do so that'll be fun. I hope to get to be blonde, that'll be crazy. Did you see the first Thor? The Warriors Three were in the first one, but they were just kind of in and out of a few scenes so I hope that Fandral is in a little bit more of this one. And I hope I get to kick butt with a sword and ride a horse and be charming! That's the idea anyway!"

One does not simply pull out of the Warriors Three
GoILL - 7/13/2012, 1:46 PM
Looking forward to this, really enjoyed Zach on the series Chuck.
ksommer - 7/13/2012, 1:48 PM
@kingshnake are you suggesting death to Josh Dallas?
kingshnake - 7/13/2012, 1:50 PM
I'm not saying death to Josh Dallas......................I'm just saying the Warriors Three are an ancient and noble order.......................and death to Josh Dallas
Rhys - 7/13/2012, 1:53 PM
Can't wait...Zach Levi is perfect!!
DaenerysTargaryen - 7/13/2012, 1:53 PM
Hmm....I wonder what he'll look like blonde
ksommer - 7/13/2012, 1:55 PM
@kingshnake I agree! He's from TX, I say we track him down.... :)
HelaGood - 7/13/2012, 1:57 PM
he did a FANTASTIC job as a voice actor. sounds like he has a much better grasp on Fandral than Josh Dallas did. this is very good!!!!
superotherside - 7/13/2012, 2:01 PM
Awesome I liked his character in Tangled. :)
GodzillaKart - 7/13/2012, 2:06 PM
He seems fine but I have to admit I wish they were getting a new Volstagg.
nailbiter111 - 7/13/2012, 2:07 PM
they did such a poor job with the warriors three in the last one. i really don't care what they do with them in the next one.
AlcoholicA - 7/13/2012, 2:18 PM
@ksommer

Wait wait, are you saying "let's track him down" because he's from Texas, or "let's track him down" because YOU"RE from Texas and so is he, thus making it easy?
valeriesghost - 7/13/2012, 2:23 PM
@tea do you write similar poetry for the misses?
ksommer - 7/13/2012, 2:23 PM
@AlcoholicA I'm just saying we have a location... If we wanted to... We could... Not that we should... Or should we? :)
AlcoholicA - 7/13/2012, 2:29 PM
@ksommer

I'm down

"You don't just get to walk away from this..." lol
Durf - 7/13/2012, 2:37 PM
Cool, I think he understands the character pretty well and I also want to see The Warriors Three do more in the next movie.

Also, that was beautiful tea. I'm gettin' all misty here...
WakeUp - 7/13/2012, 2:39 PM
T just made me pee a little.
darkjoker1 - 7/13/2012, 2:41 PM

GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 2:51 PM
SUGGESTIONS FOR NUMBER 2...

HOGUN NEEDS HIS SIGNATURE FACIAL HAIR..


THEY NEED TO GET AN ACTUAL BIG FAT GUY FOR VOLSTAGG...



SIF NEEDS TO WEAR LESS...PLEASE...


THEY NEED TO BRING IN BALDER...
Durf - 7/13/2012, 2:53 PM
Nice suggestions GUN!
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 2:56 PM
ESPECIALLY SIF WEARING LESS, WONDERWOMAN WEARS PANTIES AND A GOLD BRAZIER AND CAN GIVE A GOOD BEAT DOWN, AND STILL LOOK SEVERELY SEXY.
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 2:58 PM
BUT I MIGHT BE SUGGESTING THAT BECAUSE I JUST WANNA SEE HER WEAR LESS...POSSIBLY.
Durf - 7/13/2012, 2:58 PM
Yeah that was my personal favorite suggestion. lol
Durf - 7/13/2012, 2:58 PM
No problem with just wanting to see her wear less. I'm on board. :)
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 2:59 PM
SHE CAN BE ON MY BOARD.
Durf - 7/13/2012, 3:01 PM
lol, agreed GUN.

Also, I agree with tea and his oonfirmation
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 3:01 PM
TEABAG I AM TOUCHED THAT MEANS LOADS COMING FROM YOU.
HelaGood - 7/13/2012, 3:02 PM
i confirm Gunsmith's ideas for Thor 2, AND add that Volstagg needs to be BIGGER, Hogun needs his facial hair, and Thor should wear his helmet more.
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 3:06 PM
HELA I AGREE, YOU KNOW I WONDER HOW MANY HELMETS THEY MADE HIM AND HOW MUCH IT PROBABLY TOOK TO CRAFT IT AND FOR HIM TO ONLY WEAR IT ONCE....ONCE, NOT EVEN 3 MINUTES IN THE MOVIE. PROP GUYS PROBABLY SAID.."WELL WTF DID WE EVEN MAKE IT FOR MAN...I MEAN REALLY?"..
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 7/13/2012, 3:07 PM
Hes going to do great, I just want Thor 2 to really be more otherworldly grounded. They shouldn't even come to Midgard in Thor 2 its to dull go to other realms Alfheim maybe

GATHERING DUST...

Ranger14 - 7/13/2012, 3:16 PM
It only makes sense that there will be more of the Warriors 3 in Thor 2 being they said it is going to be focused on Asgardian realms. Glad they got Levi on board.
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 3:16 PM
LOL TEA, THAT REMINDS ME OF...
djwood - 7/13/2012, 3:19 PM
Why does everyone think The Warriors Three got very little screen time? Thats absurd! Watch the movie again!
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2012, 3:28 PM
HelaGood - 7/13/2012, 3:33 PM
@Gun
yeah i was disappointed how they turned his helmet into something more ceremonial, and yet Loki wore his quite a lot!
HelaGood - 7/13/2012, 3:49 PM
@djwood
i think we all just want to see MORE of them and less of Jane and Darcy.
HelaGood - 7/13/2012, 3:53 PM
...although more of Darcy would be nice...
