Kat Dennings Says "You’ll See Darcy Like Never Before" In THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Promising a lot of surprises in store for her Thor: The Dark World character, Kat Dennings dishes more on Darcy Lewis' role in the Marvel sequel and praises director Alan Taylor. More after the jump!
Speaking with the Los Angeles Daily News, actress Kat Dennings discussed reprising her role as Darcy Lewis alongside Natalie Portman in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World. “Darcy’s a political science major who’s interning with Jane [Foster] for credit,” says Dennings. “She’s really bad at real science in this first movie. In the second movie, she’s more interested, but she still doesn’t know anything about it. She loves Jane, she really wants Jane and Thor to be together. It’s almost like her own little soap opera that she watches. Darcy does many amazing things, the content of which I will probably get snipered if I reveal,” she admits. “But there are a lot of awesome sequences involving Darcy that I think fans of the movie will be excited to see — and that I, as a fan, was spoiled to be doing. You’ll see Darcy as you’ve never seen her before.” In action scenes, perhaps? “Maaaybe... Possssibly.” But will Darcy shack up with an Asgardian to call her own? “I’m not gonna tell ya. But I’m not gonna rule it out. There are a lot of surprises in store for Darcy in this movie. Some things even surprised me.”
Praising Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor for his directional duties on Thor: The Dark World, Dennings says, “Alan has a great eye and a great sensibility. He’s great at serious sequences and action sequences, has a really deft hand. He’s comfortable in that world, and he’s also good at one-on-one, smaller scenes on Earth, and love scenes,” she adds. “He can do it all, and had a fresh take on the Thor world.” And the same can be said for Darcy. “She’s part of the audience,” Dennings explains. “She kind of reacts the way anyone watching the scenes in reality would.”
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios.
