When Josh Dallas couldn’t return to reprise his role as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World due to scheduling conflicts, Zachary Levi stepped in to take on the role that he was originally up for. Now with the third film in the Thor series on the way, will we see Levi return once again as the dashing member of The Warriors Three? When asked, Levi responded:
“I have no idea. They have not told me anything. I hope so. I think that’d be pretty fun to get the gang back together, the Warriors Three. But there’s a reason why the movie’s called Thor and not The Warriors Three. They’ve got to do what’s right for Thor.”
Zachary Levi continued:
“I think they’re shooting for next summer so it really just depends on when in the summer. I know when they’re going to shoot, only because, like everyone knows, when the film’s actual releasing because Marvel’s already slotted all that out which I think is again the following November which is what the last Thor was. So they’ve got to shoot it next Summer. I don’t know. It’d be a lot of fun but there’s also a lot of other Marvel roles that I’d love to play one day. If I never get to play Fandral again, I got to do it once and it was a great group to work with.”
So, if somehow Zachary Levi didn’t reprise his role, he was asked if that would stop him from possibly playing another Marvel character in the future. Levi had an interesting reply
“Oh no. I had a very interesting talk with Kevin Feige early on about it all and he said, “Look, it doesn’t preclude you from playing another Marvel character.” Chris Evans was The Human Torch and Captain America. Ray Stevenson was The Punisher and Volstagg. I did point out to him, ‘In fairness, neither Fantastic Four nor The Punisher was actually a Marvel movie. You were a part of it but they were produced by other studios.’ But he said, ‘Look, I totally understand that but don’t worry about it.’ I don’t know, if there’s a right role that comes along and they want me to play it, I’d love to.”
Are you hoping to see Zachary Levi reprise his role in the upcoming 2017 film? And if somehow he didn’t, is there a character you think he’d be good for? Comment below.
