Zachary Levi for Thor 2

It looks like Joshua Dallas is out, and Zachary Levi is in, where Thor 2 is concerned...

There’s continued progress on Marvel’s Thor 2 movie, which has long-since confirmed Game Of Thrones’ Alan Taylor as its director. We know too that Chris Hemsworth is back in the title role, with Natalie Portman amongst the returnees, too. But one person who won’t be back is Joshua Dallas.

Dallas played Fandral in the first movie, but his commitments to the TV show Once Upon A Time mean that he can’t work the schedule to reprise the role in the follow-up. Interestingly, this has opened the door for Chuck star Zachary Levi, who is reportedly in negotiations to take over the part. The interesting part is that Levi was originally up for the role when the casting for the first film came around, but his own commitments to the TV show Chuck prevented him taking that interest further.

Thor 2 is scheduled for release on November 8th 2013. We’ll keep you posted…
