Zachary Levi is going from the Buy More to Asgard. The star of the cult TV show Chuck is in negotiations to join the cast of Alan Taylor‘s Thor 2 as Fandral, one of the Warriors Three. But wait, you say. Wasn’t that part was played by Josh Dallas in the first film? Correct. However, Dallas now stars on ABC’s hit show Once Upon a Time and had to bow out of the Marvel sequel for that, leaving the door open for Levi. Oddly enough, Levi was reportedly first cast as Fandral in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor but his show Chuck got picked up for another season and he had to do that. Now the roles are reversed.

Marvel Studios and Paramount will be unleashing Thor upon the world in just under two months — the film opens on May 6 — and we could well see another chunk or two of the film released to the public before opening day. In the meantime, check out the French trailer for the film, which offers a couple of very slight new visions that didn’t make it into the last couple domestic trailers. Read More »

Well, this image shows two of the Warriors Three from Kenneth Branagh‘s Thor: on the right side of the steps are Fandral the Dashing (Josh Dallas) and Hogun the Grim (Tadanobu Asano). At the very far right, you can just see what I guess is the right leg of Volstagg the Valiant (Ray Stevenson).
This is the same image that arrived via the LA Times over the weekend, but now in high-res. You can see a lot more detail in the armor and helmet of Loki (Tom Hiddleston, on the left in the green cape), and in the costumes for Fandral, Hogun, Frigga (Rene Russo), and Odin (Anthony Hopkins). You can even make out better detail on Huginn and Muninn, Odin’s two ravens that are perched atop his throne. Those ravens are Thought and Memory, in case you needed a little Asgardian refresher. Hit the jump for the full version, and for a high-res version of the Thor and Odin photo from EW. Read More »
