The 'Two Broke Girls' actress sits down with Moviefone to discuss her expanded role in Thor: The Dark World. Hit the jump for more details....
While promoting Thor: The Dark World, 'Darcy' actress Kat Dennings sat down with Moviefone to discuss everything from her experience on the set of the of the hit film, to her future in the Marvel universe.
When asked about how she felt about returning to the franchise, Dennings responded "I'm always surprised whenever anything good happens to me... so yes. I was hoping but I didn't know. I didn't know I was in the sequel until right before I got the script. People kept asking me if I knew and I honestly didn't know. And then when I did know, I couldn't tell anybody. I had to keep it in. But I was super excited."
Dennings was then asked how she felt about being the primary source of comedic relief in the film.
"Oh yeah, especially having seen the finished movie, there's a lot of emotional darkness, and a lot of scary and amazing things happen. So Darcy is very needed and I think that lightness is really needed. It's really fun to be that and now, the second time around... The first time around I was like, well, I'll just do what I do and if I get cut? Hey! But now, that I didn't get cut, I'm back, so Darcy is important now. It wasn't pressure but I knew how important it was. So I really tried to do my best."
As far as her future in the Marvel Universe, Dennings was not definitive about where her role would go, but remained optomistic. "I mean, I secretly hope that Darcy is in all the other things. I don't know. I'm just grateful that I'm involved. I'm a fan of Marvel movies and it was an acting slash life goal to be in one. And now I've been in two. So I'm not about to start asking things. I'm very grateful to be where I am." She continued, this time being more specific about Darcy's role in the Thor franchise. "If Darcy does get brought back for future movies, I would love to see her brought to Asgard, because there is unlimited comedy potential. But Darcy has so much fun stuff to do in this movie and so much to say. I remember when I read the script, it's so epic but I would have bursts of hilarity with Darcy's lines. They really gave me fantastic dialogue." On whether she would be up for an appearance on Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Hey, whatever Marvel wants me to do. I haven't seen it yet, but I hear it's really cool."
Lastly, she was asked about Joss Whedon's involvement in the movie's production. "Actually, I don't know. He was around sometimes. Sometimes I would just see him in a raincoat just standing to the side and I'd think, Oh, that's Joss Whedon. But I didn't go up to him because I didn't know if he was busy and I'm just not good at that. One day I'll go up to him and say, 'Hey, I saw you in a raincoat one time.'"
