Zachary Levi’s lines cut from Thor: Ragnarok

During 2017’s Heroes & Villians Fest, Zachary Levi gave an intimate Q&A with the fans during his panel where he spoke about his short time as Fandral in the Thor franchise. In the conversation, he spoke about his time as Fandral and mentioned that he actually did have a speaking role in the film:

“I actually had some lines, originally. What’s left on the cutting room floor for those of you who have watched the movie, you see that Cate Blanchett comes out and she very just willy-nilly throws some knives of demonic purpose. I don’t know, they’re evil knives, impaling both me and Volstagg, killing us instantly. The end. What is on the cutting room floor is me charging at Hela and getting impaled and going ‘For Asgard’. No shit, I had my last line, my last words in the Marvel Universe were ‘For Asgard.’ Cutting room floor. And when I shot that it was a bummer. I loved being in the Marvel Universe, but I wish I could do more.”

Levi will have a starring role in a different superhero movie universe, the DC Extended Universe, when he plays the titular role in Warner Bros’ Shazam.

Thor: Ragnarok is now playing in theaters and you can catch Zachary Levi in Shazam! in 2019 which will be directed by David F. Sandberg. The film will follow the young Billy Batson, who can transform into an adult superhero by saying the name “Shazam!” which is an acronym for ancient gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. His power level rivals Superman with the powers of superhuman strength, speed, flight and other abilities.
