2 Broke Girls episode screencapping season has officially kicked off, thanks to our friends at Divine Candice. We have added 729 HQ screencaptures of first season’s episode one, ‘Pilot’. Filling this section in our gallery with a significant number of images per episode has always been a goal for the website, but too big a task for a single person to undertake, which is why this contribution is so important. Hoping you enjoy this massive update!
Marvel’s Wanda Maximoff is finally getting her solo comic series with Scarlet Witch, to be released in January 4, 2023. Kat’s character, Darcy Lewis, a previously cinematic universe-only insert, now makes her official debut as a character in the comics. But this is Marvel, so the event is not as linear as that. In an interview with Polygon’s Oliver Sava, writer Steve Orlando commented on Darcy:
“This is the 616 version of this character, who brings the same type of perceptions to the book, but also fits right into what’s going on with Scarlet Witch, with the magic side of the Marvel Universe. Darcy’s there to lightly chide the absurdities we love of comic books, especially in a character like Thor. Wanda speaks casually about a life that is absurd and strange, and it’s normal for her. But if you look at her family tree and the things she does, it can seem quite esoteric. Darcy essentially gives a voice to the audience in the same way that Kat Dennings’ character does.”Steve Orlando for Polygon, article published on November 15, 2022.
The full interview with Polygon can be read here.
Yesterday on her Instagram, Kat reacted to this news by sharing images of her character as portrayed in the comics with visible excitement, as a long-time fan of Marvel. In a post where Darcy can be seen holding a mug of what’s presumably coffee, she summarised her thoughts with the caption “There is almost nothing more exciting in the world than finding out you’re in a comic book”. Equal to none, Kat additionally quipped about her printed likeness’s prominent cleavage.
Kat Dennings no longer has a Twitter account. Since yesterday, accessing the officialkat handle returns an error. In response to Elon Musk’s first days as boss of the bird app, several celebrities have quit Twitter, giving preference to other social media. The list includes Whoopi Goldberg, Gigi Hadid and Stephen Fry. And now, our very own Kat. As for the reasons behind the departure, they all stem from Musk’s decisions to change the verification process into a paid model which might confuse audiences more than help them, to send many employees home at a global scale; as well as from worries as to where the mogul’s interpretation of free speech might conflate with hate speech, far-right and antisemitic groups not being unknown to the platform. Exactly which condition, if indeed singular, prompted Kat to follow Fry et al., we don’t know.
On her Instagram stories (at katdenningsss), Kat poked fun at the situation with a thumbs-down caught in an old Conan appearance and an amusing template for thoughts.
As for denningsdiaries, our website’s handle on the same platform, it remains open to peruse; the future of it is unknown, along with that of so many other fan accounts which, in spite of clear messages of being so at an unofficial capacity, not intending to deceit viewers by tricking them into thinking the profiles represent official/personal accounts, may find themselves terminated under false claims of impersonation. We will not, and indeed cannot afford to, pay for a membership, even if it means staying afloat. With Kat’s departure from the network, such a prospect makes even less sense. If the account becomes inactive without warning, let it be known it was terminated by Twitter and not ourselves. In the meantime, we will consider whether we follow Kat’s steps.
We have added 250 HQ upscaled screencaptures of Kat’s Q&A video for Spindrift, which we shared before here, along with a transcript. Enjoy.
Spindrift has finally released the Q&A video shot with Kat Dennings, at her house, back in July, ahead of the release of The Kat Pack, a curated collection of Miss Dennings’s favourite flavours of the sparkling drink. In the video, titled “Pouring over Spiked with Kat Dennings” part of Spindrift’s new motion series, Kat answers a string of assorted questions while preparing Panzanella salad. She mentions growing up in a haunted house, which you can read all about here. Of the video, she said the following:
I was so excited to film this special lil Q&A for @spindriftspiked, the alcoholic version of my all-time favorite beverage! We talk about what’s in my fridge and fantasy football’s right to exist, among other fascinating tidbits. I also sprinkle salt on a salad! Check out @spindriftspiked for the full video! #SpindriftPartnerKat Dennings via Instagram.
You can read the full transcript for the video here. Screencaptures coming soon!
We have added 439 MQ screencaptures of Kat chatting with Maria Mercedes Lara of Popsugar back in 2013, apropos of Thor: The Dark World‘s global release. Sadly, a higher quality version was not possible to gather. The video clip was uploaded in November, but we’re unaware of the exact recording date. In spite of this uncertainty, we hope you enjoy the upload.
