Levi had actually been in talks to join the first Thor as Frandral, an Asgardian tag-along cast in the mold of swashbuckling Errol Flynn, but had to bow out when NBC's Chuck got an episode extension, paving the way for Josh Dallas to fill the role. But now Dallas has his own TV commitments — ABC's Once Upon a Time — and sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Marvel Studios will likely offer the role to Levi any day now.
