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