Easily one of the best parts of the original Thor movie was the Warriors Three and Sif coming down to earth looking for Thor. This was the first time we really got to see serious juxtaposition between the Asgardian characters and the mere mortals on earth. Also Sif is a babe.
Unfortunately news has come out of the Hollywood Reporter that one of the fabled Warriors Three is getting recast:
Marvel Studios is targeting Zachary Levi to join the cast of Thor 2. He would replace Josh Dallas in the film. Dallas played Fandral, one of the Warriors Three in Thor, but is bowing out of the sequel to the 2011 hit movie due to his commitments to the ABC show Once Upon a Time.
Now Zach Levi is a geek favorite and a more than competent choice for the role, but Josh Dallas did such a great job with in the first film and has been killing it on Once Upon A Time as well. It would have been nice to see him get another go at the character.
That said, as previously mentioned, Levi is a wonderful actor too, and had it not been for a last second finale season to Chuck, he would have landed the role in the first place. If anything this should be looked upon as good news for fans of the Asgardian warriors, this could be a sign that their roles have been beefed up for the sequel. Can we have more Sif too?
