The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Marvel studios are considering enlisting Chuck star Zachary Levi for the role of Fandral the Dashing in Alan Taylor’s Thor 2.

One of Thor’s sidekicks/allies/Dungeons & Dragons party in the Warriors Three, Fandral was played by Once Upon A Time‘s Joshua Dallas in the first film.

“I’ll be missing out on wearing all that hair!” Dallas told Entertainment Weekly. “The timing wasn’t right. I’m bummed about it because I had such a great experience and great time making the first film and was really excited about coming back.

“Marvel and Disney tried to make it work. But because of my commitment to Once Upon A Time, I was not going to be able to do both. So I’ll have to hand the reins over to someone else. I love Marvel. I wish them all the best. I will certainly be first in line to see it. On the other hand, I’m going back to the best job on TV. I love it and can’t wait to delve in more.”

Do you think this means a bigger role for the character?
