SHAZAM! Actor Zachary Levi Explains Why He Is Glad To No Longer Be A Part Of The MCU

Prior to being cast as the titular DC superhero in Shazam!, actor Zachary Levi played Fandral in Marvel's Thor movies before being killed off in Ragnarok. Now, Levi reveals why he's glad that happened...

Zachary Levi landed the role of Fandral in the second Thor movie after replacing Josh Dallas who played the character briefly in the first installment. However, in the third chapter of the Thor trilogy, Fandral was rather unceremoniously killed off.

Levi has now revealed that he originally envisioned The God of Thunder's dashing friend as having a much larger role to play in the franchise, but was never given the opportunity to see it to fruition.
 

When I got cast as Fandral in 'Thor: The Dark World', though I wasn't able to do it, I knew that the Warriors Three could be really fun characters if they ever developed them. They just didn't. They didn't.

The Shazam! actor went on to explain why he was happy that his character in was killed off.

If Fandral didn't die, I might still be under contract with Marvel and I never would have been able to get this job. And I say f--- that! This is the coolest thing ever. I'm so happy.

Levi will now be playing a much larger role in the DCEU as Shazam!, which is set to release on April 5.
