Dashing to Asgard?

Nerd 001 could be stowing his Chucks for a trip to Asgard!


Zachary Levi is in talks to join the ranks of the Warriors Three in Thor 2 as the sword-wielding Fandral the Dashing. He was up for the part in the first film, but had to back out due to scheduling conflicts with Chuck. The role was eventually given to Once Upon a Time’s Josh Dallas, whose commitments to the ABC show keep him from returning for the sequel.


Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun, the trio that make up the adventuring Warriors Three, are Thor’s allies and the strongest battlers in the kingdom. They fight hard and play hard, sometimes simultaneously, acting as Asgardians’ fiercest defenders.


Thor 2 welcomes back Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba and Anthony Hopkins when production begins next month with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor at the helm.

    But will Fandral “flash” before he gets in a fight?
