    It is a tough week for all Darcy Lewis fans out there. The final episode for WandaVision starts streaming on Friday, thus concluding Marvel’s first project on Disney’s streaming platform. While Kat has seemingly teased new ventures for our beloved astrophysicist, no solid and credible information has made headlines yet. We at KDD will keep you posted when credible information surfaces the internet.

    Jules Wiley‘s fans, however, can rejoice, as Dollface hits Disney+ under the Star brand. The series availability is subject to regional catalogues — the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia will be the lucky ones to guest first access. According to the Disney Plus Informer, only the premiere episode, “Guy’s Girl” will be available, with a new episode being released each following Friday.

    Still according to them, “select countries” in Europe will be able to enjoy the show as well. We will have to wait and see exactly what countries have been selected.

    If you’re in Europe give it a try — we can testify that the Portuguese chapter of the service offers a quick glimpse of its description before falling to a never-ending loop for a show that is not yet in the catalogue. We’re hopeful this means Portugal will be among the selected few to get Dollface this week.

    Do not miss the WandaVision grand finale on March 5th!

    New trio alert — Darcy, Vision, and a funnel truck.


    Get ready for the most unlikely trio to arrive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Vision, Dr. Darcy Lewis, and a stolen funnel cake truck. The latest episode of Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, “Breaking the Fourth Wall,” sees the synthezoid and the doctor hijack the vehicle to escape the circus and try to make it back to Westview, no matter what speed bumps might appear along the way.

    Kat Dennings returns to the MCU for the first time since her role in Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World, and it’s clear since then, Darcy has become a respected member in the field of astrophysicists…and also an avid watcher of ‘WandaVision.’ Talking to Marvel.com, Dennings explained what it’s like to be back, what it was like to drive around in that funnel cake truck, and how there’s a hidden meaning behind her costumes this season.

    Welcome back to the MCU, we’ve been waiting for you! How exciting is this?

    It’s so exciting. It’s so unexpected. I mean, I did not expect to get that call. And I said yes immediately not knowing what I was saying yes to, and I didn’t care. But I was certainly so excited to be part of WandaVision. It’s definitely the most unique and surprising premise of anything, I think, Marvel’s ever done or anyone’s ever done, if I’m being honest.

    And Darcy now has her own Twitter emoji!

    Wow, that was like the big — I mean, I was already happy. But the emoji really sealed the deal. The Dark World had Minimates, so I have a Darcy Minimate. And with that I was like, “Well, I can die now. That’s it, that’ll do.” [That Minimate was] the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

    But now, with an emoji, I had a freak out, I really did it. Now there’s Instagram GIFs, there’s a little Darcy one with a little light bulb. It’s amazing. This is the kind of thing that gets me excited.

    What did you know about WandaVision when it was first pitched to you? Was it very basic like, “It’s a sitcom thing!” How was it explained to you?

    I had my first in-person meeting with Jac Schaeffer and Matt Shakman, the writer and director, and it was in the Marvel offices. And the room — it’s covered like serial killer style. The walls are just papered with comic book pages and references to all the sitcoms. And all the different eras had their own space on the wall.

    And I was just like, “What are you doing?” and, “How are you going to do this?” They laid it all out for me. But I will confess that I was like, I don’t understand how this is going to go. This is insane. It’s a massive undertaking that they — I mean, the writers are unbelievable — they pulled it off amazingly.

    How does it feel for Darcy to now be one of the smartest people in the room?

    Well, it’s a feeling I’m [personally] not familiar with [laughs]. So I absolutely loved it. That was one of the more fun parts was, for me, I didn’t know what Darcy could be doing there because Darcy’s had no interaction with [any of the characters in] WandaVision at all, right? Her interaction has been limited to Thor and Jane Foster and Erik Selvig, and that’s it.

    She’s now an expert. She’s a doctor, she’s a PhD, she’s an astrophysicist. So she is one of the smartest people there, without question, maybe the smartest. It feels good.

    You team up with Randall Park and Teyonah Parris, and you three form your own little trio — Darcy, Jimmy, and Monica.  What was it like working with the two of them?

    Oh, my god, amazing. I love Randall so much. He’s a wonderful person. And Teyonah is somebody that I hit it off with right away. I liked her right away. You know how you can just tell with people? I loved her right away.

    And we have a really fun relationship in the show because Darcy’s a Monica fangirl. We see, in Episode 5, when she meets Monica. She’s like, “I know who you are!” She’s so excited she gets to be near Monica Rambeau. And she’s a big fan, so there’s that fun thing of Darcy idolizes her and also gets to help. And then they become friends. And it’s great, it’s fun. It’s like a fun little team.

    You leave the two of them for a bit, after you’re accidentally sucked into the Westview anomaly at the end of Episode 6, and we meet the “escape artist” in Episode 7.

    Yeah, that was unbelievable. I also didn’t know that was going to happen.

    There’s a theme in Darcy’s costumes that the very astute will notice, which is this teal color. Mayes is such an artist that she was like, “Everything is teal to match your eyes.” I was like, what? That’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me.

    So a lot of Darcy’s main costumes are my eye color. So she based that whole look off of that, which is just an incredible— she’s amazing. Who else would think of that?

    And the character I play is the escape artist because Wanda has expanded the hex. And now the S.W.O.R.D. base is a circus. So I’m the escape artist with chains and whatever. And it obviously didn’t change her personality too much.

    Following that, you actually teamed up with Vision. Can you talk about working with Paul Bettany and the mad chase you two go on?

    I will say, that was probably one of the highlights of my entire career because I’m a massive fan of him, as an actor, not just from the Marvel films, but as an actor. I think he’s one of the best. He’s also a lovely, wonderful, funny, great guy. And I was like, my god, I cannot believe I have scenes with this dude. I can’t believe it.

    And it’s the most unexpected team. People think Jimmy and Darcy are unexpected, wait for Darcy and Vision together! So I will say, those scenes with him were the scenes I was probably the most excited about. The look of it is so amazing.

    Being able to act with Paul Bettany, what an unforgettable experience. It was a great time. That truck is very funny. There were efforts to get that Funnel of Love logo as many places as they could.

    Two days ago, Kat talked to Rachel Hollis about the books of her childhood on the latter’s Your Fave’s Faves podcast. Listen to the conversation below and why don’t you check out our original series, Kat’s Books & Wine Club while you do?

    If there’s one place Marvel fans wouldn’t have expected Darcy Lewis to make her grand return to the MCU, it’s on a Disney+ series focussed on Scarlet Witch and her spiral out of control. And yet, when WandaVision‘s fourth episode aired on Jan. 29, there was the illustrious former intern in all her glory. And we weren’t even the only ones shocked — when Kat Dennings sat down for a video call with POPSUGAR, she admitted that she had been surprised to get the call to return from Marvel.


    “It’s so rare that you get to revisit a character at all, so something on this kind of scale with this long in between appearances is really fun,” she admitted. “[My first thought was] absolute shock, first. And then I said yes, without knowing what it was. I was like, ‘Yes, whatever it is, I’ll do it.'”

    Honestly, who wouldn’t say yes without thinking to Marvel? It’s Marvel. (OK, so, maybe Chris Evans did, but that’s different.) “When they said it was WandaVision, I was a little bit confused! Only because that was the last thing I expected to hear,” she added. “Darcy didn’t interact with anybody in that world at all, so it was definitely a very unexpected pairing, but an absolute joy. I mean, it’s such a unique show.”

    Seven episodes into the limited series, and there’s no doubt of how unique it is. Darcy’s return is thanks to the Hex, a forcefield around the city of Westview, NJ, that has seemingly been erected by former Avenger, Wanda Maximoff. Darcy — now a doctor in astrophysics — is recruited by S.W.O.R.D to figure out what the anomaly is and how to take it down. And from there, a lot goes down. For Dennings, the opportunity to evolve her well-beloved character was a welcome one. “The writers are amazing, and Jac Schaeffer, our head writer and executive producer, put so much thought and character development into Darcy. It was just so amazing — I’ve thanked her profusely,” she gushed. “I consider it a new role. She’s obviously been through a ton of school to get her PhD and become a doctor. She’s now an expert in her field, and she’s demanding respect. She’s a boss! So, it felt great — it feels so good to be portraying a smart woman and a cool character in the show.”

    And Dennings took Darcy’s promotion seriously, admitting that she began listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson’s podcast StarTalk, because she wanted to hear a real astrophysicist talk. “These terms are very complicated, and when you’re saying them, you don’t want to sound like you’re sounding out a word for the first time,” she explained. “You want to sound like you’ve said it hundreds of times. So, that was how I prepared — I listened to an astrophysicist saying these words over and over, so I sounded like I had said them all the time. There’s an ease that a real astrophysicist has saying those words that I wanted to try and get.” We have to respect the dedication to the craft!

    Darcy’s inclusion in this new “world” has allowed her to interact with new characters outside of her original Thor story, namely Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Jimmy Woo (Randall Park). If Twitter had its way, the fast fan-favourite trio would have their stand-alone TV series after WandaVision! “Oh, well, what a dream,” Dennings said when I asked how it was working with her costars. “Randall is an unbelievable actor and the loveliest man you’ll ever meet! There’s nothing to complain about — we would sit down at that desk with our little bag of chips, and I was like, ‘God, I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do this as my job.’ And the great thing is that it doesn’t make sense that Darcy and Jimmy would be together in a scene, but now it’s happening.”

    That mishmash of characters from different comic book backgrounds is what makes fans love the MCU so much, and it’s what made up some of Dennings’s favourite scenes. “It’s really fun to be in something that you know a lot of people are going to watch. Because as an actor, sometimes you put your heart and soul in something two people see, and that’s fine, too. But this is definitely a one-of-a-kind a situation,” she said.

    Fans have two more episodes of WandaVision to enjoy seeing Darcy on their screen, and Dennings is adamant that she doesn’t know what’s in store for the doctor’s future. Could she ever be a superhero herself? Probably not, but Dennings theorized that if Darcy ever got powers, it would be less of the world-saving variety and have more of the self-serving element. “She could pour water from her fingertips? So, she could make cup of noodles and coffee at the same time,” she threw out. “It’s always about snacks with me. The power of snacks.” Maybe she’ll show up in Thor: Thunder and Love, alongside her former employee Jane Foster who’s set to become the goddess of Thunder, aka Lady Freakin’ Thor.

    “Here’s the thing, I’ll do anything they say,” Dennings answered when I asked. “If Marvel called me and said, ‘We need you to get on a trampoline, and you’re just going to jump really high. Wherever you end up, we’re going to make a movie.’ I’m down. I’ll do whatever they say.” But, she hasn’t been asked to join the cast for Love and Thunder. “I don’t think I am [in the movie], because they are shooting it right now. But, my door’s always open for Marvel.”

    You heard the lady, Marvel. Your move.

    Finally, some Dollface news, even if they’re not concerning the much coveted second season entering production. According to What’s on Disney Plus, the Hulu show is coming to the streaming service’s catalogue under the Star umbrella service. Makes sense, since Hulu cannot be officially watched outside of the United States, where both services can even be bundled for the best value.

    We hope it won’t take long for Jules Wiley to move to Disney+, much to the delight of Dennings fans worldwide. If this is true, then Dollface will be Kat’s 5th project to become available on Disney+, after Thor, Thor: The Dark World, the oldie The Scream Team and, of course, WandaVision!
