Zachary was first casting as Fandral in the first Thor movie, which was liberated back in 2011. Due to a scheduling come into conflict with his display Chuck, Zachary was replaced by Josh Dallas.

Josh then left the role after the first movie and Zachary was offered the role of Fandral again for the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. He accepted the role, but did have some hesitation.

” To be honest, I had determined the first one, and I didn’t certainly feel like The Warriors Three were used all that well ,” Zachary said( via The Direct ). So, I was like,’ Hey, are you going to actually use these kinfolks? ’ And “theyre saying”,’ Oh no, we’re gonna use The Warriors Three a lot in Thor: The Dark World. A batch. Yeah, you’re going to be busy.’ And I was like,’ Okay, ’ so I signed off for it .”

Once production started, Zachary realized that he didn’t have the large-scale of a role in The Dark World, and would have even less screen time in third installment, Thor: Ragnarok.

” I didn’t have that much to do, you are well aware? And truly , nothing to do in the third one, ” Zachary interpreted. “I knew I was dying in the third largest one. I didn’t know I was dying, having said nothing. Even the few messages they gave me were going to be taken away…and even if I didn’t die, they were probably going to snap me out of existence anyway, who am I kidding? ”

Despite the chagrin, Zachary is still very grateful for being part of the Marvel Universe.

“I died in the Marvel Universe … and then I came reborn in the DC Universe ,” Zachary said, referencing his Shazam! persona.” And I can’t even tell you how unbelievably cool that is and how grateful I am for that.”
