LOS ANGELES – Zachary Levi has been talking about a “Chuck” movie since the beginning of this year, but it’s going to take a minute, as the rest of the watching world reaches the end of the series for themselves.
Speaking from the red carpet during the “Thor: The Dark World” premiere last night (Nov. 4), “Chuck’s” titular TV actor said he continues to “spearhead” a reunion for its cast.
“I’m working on it,” he said. “The show is still airing in some markets in the world, in Japan they’re still showing the fifth season, so you cant rightly make a movie without them having finished that whole journey. You gotta have a little time to decompress, and then you go make a movie.”
He told HitFix that he’d make another go at television “with the right project at the right time.” In the meantime, he gets to enjoy his role in Marvel’s latest world, for this “Thor” sequel, as Fandral. As previously reported, Levi missed out on playing that character in the first film due to an extension of “Chuck.” Then, his replacement Josh Dallas had to put the armor down for “The Dark World” due to his commitments to “Once Upon a Time.”
“I grew up reading comics and more comics and more comics,” Levi said of this current career spike. “To actually put on wardrobe and have a sword and ride a horse and you have explosions going off… I’m living my childhood dreams right now. I’m so blessed.
“I hope that I do the fanboys and fangirls proud.”
“Thor: The Dark World” is out on Friday.
