Zachary Levi has confirmed a long-rumored role—that he'll indeed be swashbuckling his way to Thor 2 alongside Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder.

The newly bearded and former Chuck star confirmed last night on the Tonight Show that he will play the role of Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, in Thor 2.

If you recall, Levi was originally cast in the role but had to drop out at the last minute due to his filming commitments to the final season of NBC's Chuck.

The role had then gone to future Once Upon a Time's Prince Charming himself: Joshua Dallas.

Now, in what must be the mother of all ironies, it's Dallas who's currently unavailable to return as Fandral because he's back to pulling duties as Charming on the second season of Once Upon a Time while Thor 2 is set to be filming.

Check out Zachary Levi's Thor 2 admission:

Thor 2 will be directed by fan-favorite Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor, who'll also be making his feature-film debut.

Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba and Anthony Hopkins are all set to return, while Mads Mikkelsen is in negotiations to play the villain.

So are you guys excited that our main man Zachary Levi is stepping into Fandral's shoes for Thor 2?

Thor 2 is set to be released on Nov. 8, 2013.
