When Kat Dennings' name was added to the THOR cast roster as the character "Darcy" many fans believed it to be a cover for a secretive role. The most common assumption to date being Hela, daughter of Loki and Goddess of Asgardian dead. According to the filmmakers, the character Darcy was created specifically for the film and is not related to a Marvel comics character at all. MTV News caught up with THOR actresses Natalie Portman and Kat Dennings at Comic Con, and they had this to say about Dennings' role:


"Darcy is kind of Jane Foster's gnome helper," laughed Dennings.


"Except in the form of a beautiful woman," Portman added. "If a gnome was a beautiful woman."


"She kind of evolved into Jane's little sister-y partner in crime who doesn't know anything about anything," Dennings continued.


"I think it might be what Jane was like before she found her path, and she has a great future ahead of her as a big scientist," said Portman.


What do you think, Marvel movie fans? Is this the extent of Darcy's role in the film, or is everyone involved staying tight-lipped about the true depth of the character?

I have a feeling Darcy is secrely Hela watch she ends up being Darcy/Hela heh heh heh

My money has been on Hela, from the trailer she says "For a crazy homeless person he seems.....pretty cut" and has a flirtatious look on her face. Hela has had a thing for Thor, but has always wanted his soul, and with Thor vulnerable on earth without his powers, prime oppurtinity for Hela to claim him. Would be a great plot twist in the film as well.

Just a theory
secretasianboy - 8/4/2010, 8:53 AM
It's Hela
just look at the resemblance
UnfriendlySpidey - 8/4/2010, 8:53 AM

@LEEE I think you're right!
UnfriendlySpidey - 8/4/2010, 8:56 AM
@Tea very true....we can always speculate! haha

@Poni LMAO
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 8:57 AM
For me its hard for me to see Kenneth Branagh using an up-and-coming actress in a film of this magnitude and use her as a throw in role like that, just doesnt add up to me.

@secretasianboy You need to give Helagood his credit on that, he does good manips but he did that a while back
comicbookpayne - 8/4/2010, 8:58 AM
i think people are readin to much into it, but i guess we'll see.
secretasianboy - 8/4/2010, 9:01 AM

R888 - 8/4/2010, 9:03 AM
Enough with Thor I want Captain America
ElBicho - 8/4/2010, 9:08 AM
Whoever she is, I would bang her like a screen door in a windstorm...
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/4/2010, 9:09 AM
She is Hela!:P... In my mind!:P... Every night!:P....

BuckysRevenge@ Enchantress is not in the movie... Or who knows?
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:10 AM
@bucky Amora the Enchantress is NOT in the movie, I think they are saving her for a sequel, that has been comfirmed
InTylerWeTrust - 8/4/2010, 9:15 AM
I seriously hope she isn't Hela.
peterparker420 - 8/4/2010, 9:19 AM
I really don't think she's anyone IMPORTANT..I could
be WRONG..but to me..There is NO NEED for her in
this movie.
darthstern - 8/4/2010, 9:22 AM
big brested eye candy thats her role !!
peterparker420 - 8/4/2010, 9:23 AM
darthstern- That was going to be my second guess! LMAO!
UnfriendlySpidey - 8/4/2010, 9:24 AM
No matter if she's Hela or not, she's hot and that's hela-cool with me!!! ;D
113 - 8/4/2010, 9:25 AM
big nice full tits on her
Hawksblueyes - 8/4/2010, 9:26 AM
Shes the floozie who sits at the desk and says for a crazy homeless guy, he's cut.


I think she's Baldor.
Hawksblueyes - 8/4/2010, 9:29 AM
tea: No, I haven't but I'm willing. ;}
DudeLove721 - 8/4/2010, 9:30 AM
I can't wait for the people who get mad and shit on the movie because she doesn't turn out to be Hella: Even though no one will have ever said she was except for fanboys with over-active imaginations.
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:30 AM
@weneed That photo of Hela was from a Thor comic, and it has been on this site and manipulated to have Kat Dennings face on it as Hela before, this isnt the first time for that photo on here
MONTEZ - 8/4/2010, 9:31 AM
i was thinking, if she is hella how did she get to midgard without anyone knowing? would she not be needed to collect souls if thor starts a huge battle? thor would recognize her. i am still unsure on her as any charcter. still hope my guess of loki in disguise, takes the original darcys place, is correct. i doubt that though.
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:32 AM
@dude I wont lose sleep over it if shes not Hela I know @Helagood will cry over it lol he knows im messing with him. If shes not shes not, but it doesnt change how I go about my life.
superdog - 8/4/2010, 9:33 AM
shes exactly what they say she is. a friend of portman who oogles over thor.
RedDevil - 8/4/2010, 9:33 AM
I think she really is just Jane Foster's buddy or partner in science? Hela and Enchantress will be saved for someone much hotter and experienced acting wise.
MONTEZ - 8/4/2010, 9:35 AM
intruder@ nobody is that stupid huh? what happens if she is not hela? does that mean all thoses who guessed that are stupid then? just saying, it's not that obvious. she could be simply playing darcy. i still do not see how people assume she is hela just becuase of her looks. think outside the box.
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:35 AM
@doughboy I can debunk the Loki in Disguise thing for sure, Loki is back on Asgard working out his plan of attack, very much is a tell-tell and dead giveaway in the trailer.

Thor not recognizing Hela can be simple, its called "In Disguise" They are Gods and they can manipulate the way they look. Loki using his daughter as a pawn as part of the game is very forseeable. How can she escape Hel without anyone detecting, with what I see in the trailer, Loki takes over Asgard in a way so he can cover it up since she is his daughter.

Theory again but good ones none-the-less, always debateable
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:39 AM
@Intruder has been bringing up points I have been making

Why waste an up and comer for some throwaway character pretty much?

Hes right not even Odin knows what all is going on on Asgard
InTylerWeTrust - 8/4/2010, 9:39 AM
Intruder: Because she doesn't fit the part at all.
fanboy76 - 8/4/2010, 9:40 AM
yeah good find poni...i think its hela but well have to wait and see. Notice Portman said sistery but never eluded to actual sister. Great way for hela to get close to thor through jane foster.
CapsUnknownSidekick - 8/4/2010, 9:45 AM
Debates can finally be ended, it turns out that she's really playing Hank Pym. Neat.
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:47 AM
@intruder great point

@intylerwetrust tell me how does Kat Dennings NOT fit the part of Hela?
MONTEZ - 8/4/2010, 9:49 AM
lol hank pym!! lmao, goog one. you might be on to something. maybe combine pym and wasp, lol. made my day with that one.
RoadDogXXIV - 8/4/2010, 9:50 AM
Jesus Christ, her tits are killing me!
claybo4131 - 8/4/2010, 9:55 AM
@pietro forgot about how she was there before Thor was, but its all the secrecy she has been about the role that has fueled this. Still Hela somehow do something I guess, take over her body as a spirit, ah who the hell knows
Hawksblueyes - 8/4/2010, 9:55 AM
Poni: Why is poor, poor Heimdall having to eat out of garbage cans? ;]
TheHulk63 - 8/4/2010, 9:58 AM
She's just Darcy ... A character for Jane to talk about Thor with.
