COMIC REEL: "Thor's" Levi Talks Possibly Playing Multiple Marvel Roles; Spider-Man Rumor Teases His Experience


Den of Geek talked to Zachary Levi about his future as Fandral in the "Thor" franchise.

"I have no idea [if I'm in 'Thor: Ragnarok']," said Levi. "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." When it was pointed out that Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif, now has an NBC drama "Blindspot" to schedule around, Levi said:

"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."

When asked if that meant he could play two Marvel characters, Levi elaborated. "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,'" said Levi. "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."

And he said to me straight, 'Yeah, we were talking about it, but the truth is we didn't know we going to be able to do it.' They didn't really know they were going to be able to get to do 'Civil War.' They didn't even know they were going to be able to do 'The Winter Soldier.'"
