WandaVision continues to serve up one shock after one other concerning the character of actuality depicted within the collection. One of many newest and most welcome surprises was the return of Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, the Thor franchise’s resident scientist, and skilled deadpan snarker. In a latest interview, Dennings revealed how Darcy was initially supposed to be a two-bit function within the first Thor film with little expectations of returning to the MCU for future movies.
“What’s interesting is…and Thor was like 10 years ago, so I don’t think they’ll mind if I talk about this. In the rehearsal process, because for Thor, this is like his story so it was like really you have to create and it’s very complicated. For anyone who knows the Thor stuff, it’s like Norse. There [are] gods. There’s stuff. There [are] rainbow things, and you have to make it grounded somehow so there’s a lot of rehearsal for the actors.”
“The writer[s] and Marvel people will come to the rehearsals and just watch us interact and say the lines. My part, Darcy, was originally, like, two scenes, and she was literally just an intern, just there to kind of bounce off other people. It was the best day of my life. I could not believe these people hired me and like I duped them somehow [to hire] me.”
In Thor, Darcy Lewis was launched as an intern to Jane Foster, Natalie Portman’s character from the movie. Darcy’s fundamental goal was to principally take the place of the viewers whereas Jane launched into scientific explanations concerning the creation of the interdimensional portal that landed Thor on Earth. In accordance with Dennings, her prior relationship with Natalie Portman impressed the script writers to present her character extra to do on display screen that finally grew to become a full-fledged supporting function.
“Because Natalie and I are already friends, I remember this exactly. I walk in the room and I’m very shy. I came in and I sat down and Natalie hadn’t gotten there yet and everyone was so nice. Natalie came in and sat on my lap because we’re friends. I think our friendship started to infect them [like] its purity and love. Slowly, Darcy became more involved, and I was like ‘why are they adding me to scenes?’ That’s kind of what happened. If I am being honest, friendship magic is the reason I’m here today.”
Because of the innate chemistry between Jane and Darcy, Kat Dennings discovered herself returning for the second Thor film, and now WandaVision. It stays to be seen whether or not the character might be popping up within the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder to as soon as once more take her place at Jane’s aspect.
