CHUCK Star Zach Levi To Join THOR 2

Being mostly a movie guy I don't actually have a lot of time to watch much TV, but I do have a few favorites I squeeze in every week. One of the shows I used to watch until its finale this past season was the NBC show "Chuck". Chuck embodied the geek culture in which a lot of us dwell and over all i just thought it was a clever show.

The star of that show was Zachary Levi who also did the male lead voice of Flynn in the animated film "Tangled" in 2010 (which I actually really liked) and is just an all round great guy (name dropping time… that's Zach with me in the picture below at Comic Con last year).

Zach was also originally cast as Thor's trusted friend and member of the Warriors Three, Fandral. However, when "Chuck" was picked up for another season, Zach had to bow out of the talks and the role went to Josh Dallas who did an excellent job. However, it seems irony is coming into play for the character of Thandral.

According to reports, Josh's shooting schedule with his show "Once Upon A Time" is in conflict with the "Thor 2" shooting schedule which means Marvel has to recast the role… and it looks like Zach Levi is the man they're going to putting in the game. Apparently the casting is still in the "discussion" stage, but insiders are saying it's only a matter a time before they announce Levi as the new Thandral for "Thor 2" which I think is fantastic.

But what do YOU think? If Dallas can't return to "Thor 2" are you excited about Levi filling the role he was originally supposed to have or do you think another performer would be better suited for the job? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
