While I am disapointed to see a role being recast, I wouldn't mind if Zachary Levi took over. I love Chuck, and it would be interesting to see Levi in a fantasy role like this.
Preemptive strike to keep him from being The Flash?
What do you mean? Actors have played multiple comic book character movie roles before. A certain douchebag that will go unnamed was in Green Lantern, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Blade Trinity.

Chris Evans also played the Human Torch and Captain America, doing a much better job in the second role.

And Buster Crabbe played Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and Tarzan. And Tom Tyler played Captain Marvel and the Phantom (and the Mummy). And Halle Berry played Catwoman and Storm . . . . .

There's no rule that says that an actor can only play one comic book character. Heck, John Wayne spent most of his career playing cowboys. And how many cops and detectives have Clint Eastwood and Bruce Willis played?

Now that's an awesome idea! She was great in Prometheus, and I hear she's great in Snow White. And she's just an all around great actress.

She was really good in Young Adult, too.

Universal were supposed to be doing a Sub-Mariner movie that was described as "like Star Wars, but underwater".
since they signed the rights to Hulk back to Marvel, i'd imagine Namor's reverted.
I think it's very likely that the rights to Namor have reverted to Marvel Studios. In April 2010, Kevin Feige told Collider that "Universal doesn't have anything."

That's kind of disappointing. He certainly didn't have a huge part in the first film, but I always hate it when roles are recast between films.
I like casting continuity myself, but compared to the re-casting of Bruce Banner, Rhodey and Howard Stark, this is fairly small beans.

Chuck vs. Thor!

Thor 2 Latest: Josh Dallas Out, Zachary Levi In

Levi had actually been in talks to join the first Thor as Frandral, an Asgardian tag-along cast in the mold of swashbuckling Errol Flynn, but had to bow out when NBC's Chuck got an episode extension, paving the way for Josh Dallas to fill the role. But now Dallas has his own TV commitments — ABC's Once Upon a Time — and sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that Marvel Studios will likely offer the role to Levi any day now.
This is even better than the Charlize Theron news! I guess I should get around to seeing the first movie, huh? I missed that last year but The Avengers reminded me that I still needed to see it.

^They're not firing him because Levi is available, he can't do it because he is too busy playing Charming/David on Once Upon A Time.

Yeah I went back and deleted that part. I was being cynical since Zach Levi is so much better than Josh Dallas - yeah right it's just because Dallas has a TV show now - but who the heck knows, right?

Could it also be that you like this recast since you think Zach Levi is good looking?

Well this is the Kevin Feige era of Marvel. I'm sure Levi would get locked into a contract, and if he isn't and left to do Flash, they'd kick him out the door and recast the part again for Thor 3.
