Zachary Levi looks set to take over from Josh Dallas in the Thor sequel.

The Tangled star is in early talks to play Warriors Three member Fandral and an offer is imminent, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Josh is unable to reprise his role from the 2011 film because he is committed to working on his TV show Once Upon A Time.

It will be fitting if Zachary does land the role, as he was originally in the frame to play Fandral in the first movie but had to pass due to a scheduling conflict of his own.

While Joshua won't be back, many of the stars of the original movie will be reprising their roles, including Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, Natalie Portman as his love interest Jane Foster and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
