Kat Dennings’s 10 Best Movies & TV Shows, According To IMDb
Press Articles Projects

Kat Dennings has been in some pretty memorable films and television shows since first rising to prominence in the mid-2000s.

It might not seem like it but Kat Dennings has been a notable actor for nearly two decades at this point. She’s still young but her career is a storied one, having appeared in a handful of well-received movies and television shows. For the most part, her strong suit is the comedy genre.

As time has gone on, Dennings has only added to her resume, landing the lead role on a long-running sitcom and appearing as a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With some recent MCU hits involving her, now is as good a time as any to look at her career.

10/10 2 Broke Girls

There’s a good chance that the most recognizable role ever for Kat Dennings came as one of the two lead actors on CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which ran from 2011 until 2017. The show centered on two young women who work together at a diner while they try to start a business.

Dennings played Max Black, the member of the duo who grew up in poverty and was used to it. She played well off of Beth Behrs, who was the partner that found herself on hard times after growing up with money. Lasting six seasons, the show was a commercial hit and racked up a dozen Emmy nominations.

09/10 Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

One of the first chances that Kat Dennings got to be a star was in 2008 when she nabbed one of the titular parts in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. The romantic comedy saw her portray Norah alongside Michael Cera’s Nick as the two embarked on an unexpected and fun evening on the streets of New York.

Although not considered a classic of the genre, it was praised for several things as audiences adored the chemistry between Dennings and Cera, while also appreciating the music. For her performance, Dennings was nominated for a Satellite Award for Best Actress.

08/10 Defendor

Sometimes, one of an actor’s best efforts will come from an independent film that not all that many people have seen. For Kat Dennings, one of those roles was in 2009’s Defendor, which only has about 38,000 ratings on IMDb but the majority of them were positive.

The movie centers on an ordinary man who attempts to become a vigilante superhero to help fight crime in his city. Dennings plays Angel, a sex worker who bonds with Arthur, the aspiring hero. The little-seen flick boasts a strong cast also including Woody Harrelson and Sandra Oh.

07/10 Thor: The Dark World

In the eyes of many fans, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World is the low point when it comes to movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That being said, the reviews were still mostly solid and the score on IMDb is pretty strong. Here, Dennings reprised her role as Darcy Lewis.

This time around, Darcy had more to do than simply be an intern. She added more comedic relief to things, got a love interest, and was a bit better at science. Before the days of Thor: Ragnarok, she was able to bring the laughs to the franchise focused on the God of Thunder.

06/10 Charlie Bartlett

Most audience members know that Robert Downey Jr. had his career resurgence when he landed the role of a lifetime in 2008 as Iron Man. However, some of his most impressive movies came in the year prior, including 2007’s Charlie Bartlett, where Downey Jr. played Nathan Gardner.

The film saw the titular character, played by the late Anton Yelchin, begin to work as a therapist of sorts for the students at his new public school, where Nathan Gardner was principal. Dennings had a key role as Susan Gardner, Nathan’s daughter who has a relationship with Charlie.

05/10 Thor

In 2011, the MCU really started to take off. After some standalone films for Iron Man and Hulk, Thor and Captain America joined in with their own efforts. Thor was led by Chris Hemsworth as the titular hero and Natalie Portman as his genius love interest Jane Foster.

As she was in the sequel, Dennings played Darcy Lewis, who was there to make the viewers laugh. Here, she was truly just starting out as an intern, doing the job for the few college credits rather than because she had any real interest in the subject. Over the course of the film, she forms a stronger bond with Jane and even Thor.

04/10 The 40-Year-Old-Virgin

For most viewers, their first true introduction to Kat Dennings came in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Released in 2005, this Steve Carell-led comedy was a huge hit that helped put him on the map as a star in the industry. The story centered around him (Andy) as he looked to lose his virginity at 40.

During the film, he dates Trish Piedmont (Catherine Keener), who has a daughter named Marla, played by Dennings. Although Marla isn’t a huge part of the plot, she does get to be part of an interesting and memorable scene with Andy as he takes her to a sexual health clinic, looking to learn as much as she does.

03/10 Dollface

In some ways, it seems like Kat Dennings has been doing the best work of her career over the past couple of years. One shining example of that is Dollface, a comedy series that premiered on Hulu in early 2019 and was recently renewed for a season 2.

Dennings takes on the lead role of Jules Wiley, a woman who attempts to rekindle her old female friendships that fell by the wayside during her long romantic relationship that just ended. Dennings doubles as an executive producer and works with Shay Mitchell, Brenda Song, and Esther Povitsky, as well as some notable guest stars.

02/10 Big Mouth

Kat Dennings hasn’t done a ton of voice acting so far but her most recognizable work in animation is likely the recent appearances she made in Marvel’s What If…? series. It saw her play Darcy Lewis again but only in a couple of episodes.

It’s on Netflix’s Big Mouth where she has shown up more prominently. The hilarious comedy about two awkward teen boys going through adolescence is as wild as it gets. Dennings isn’t a main character but she has been a guest in over a dozen episodes as Leah Birch, the sister of the protagonist Nick.

01/10 WandaVision

Once again, the high point of Kat Dennings’s career sees her as Darcy Lewis. Fans everywhere were surprised to hear that she’d be returning to the MCU in 2021’s WandaVision because she hadn’t been around since 2013 and had never interacted with either of the two main characters.

She was a welcome inclusion, with audiences getting to see that she has become an astrophysicist. Darcy was brought in to help figure out what’s going on with Wanda Maximoff and the town of Westview, bringing some levity to a series that was filled with somber moments.

Mark Gordon Pictures Sets Beanie Feldstein, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Kat Dennings, Jameela Jamil And Lolly Adefope To Star In Anthology TV Series
Girls Can’t Shoot (& Other Lies) Press Articles Projects

Mark Gordon Pictures has assembled an all-star cast including Beanie Feldstein, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Kat Dennings, Jameela Jamil and Lolly Adefope for the anthology series package Girls Can’t Shoot (& Other Lies), which is based on the international bestselling essay collection Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies).

Saorise Ronan will serve as an executive producer of the pilot episode. The source material, curated by Scarlett Curtis, has been published globally in 12 languages and includes essays authored by Ronan, Feldstein, Dennings, Jamil and Adefope.

The first season will explore and play with the expectations of women in storytelling by placing heroines at the center of traditionally male genres in a multitude of original, high concept, cinematic tales and will put the creative power squarely into the hands of female filmmakers. Curtis, who created the format, will serve across the entire series as EP and write the pilot episode.

Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies) gave a generation of women the chance to tell their stories and Girls Can’t Shoot (& other lies) has the exact same mission,” Curtis said. “It has been my lifelong dream to show that women’s stories can be both entertaining and empowering and I could not have found a more incredible group of women to bring their extraordinary visions to life. Working with two producers as supportive, creative and risk taking as Bonnie and Mark has been a truly magical process.”

Shadi Hamta is attached as a writer, with each actor acting as executive producers in the episode in which they star. Dennings and Adefope will write the episodes in which they will star, adapted from their essays in the collection. Feldstein and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez have partnered to develop the episode in which they will co-star. Executive producing for Mark Gordon Pictures will be Gordon and Bonnie-Chance Roberts.

“It was in March 2020, on the cusp of the end of the world, that we first began dreaming of a way to harness the spirit of Scarlett’s book into a series,” Roberts said. So, to have had each of these wildly talented, deeply creative women partner with us and pour so much passion into the work is an absolute dream come true. Working with Scarlett, as wonderful of a person as she is a creative, has been the greatest joy!”

Mark Gordon Pictures has an existing deal with eOne, under which they continue to acquire, develop and produce an expansive slate of projects spanning multiple genres and mediums.

Dennings is represented by UTA, Linden Entertainment and Harris Hartman at Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. Rodriguez is represented by UTA, 111 Media, and Gordon Bobb at Del, Shaw, Moonves, Tanaka, Finkelstein & Lezcano. Feldstein is represented by WME, Linden Entertainment and Daniel Passman at Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman. Adefope is represented by UTA and Dawn Sedgwick Management.

How WandaVision’s Kat Dennings Became Death in Audible’s Adaptation
Press Articles Projects The Sandman

Kat Dennings, who plays Darcy in the MCU, became the voice of Death in The Sandman’s Audible adaptation thanks to her friendship with Neil Gaiman.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe recognize Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, who made her debut in the Thor films and returned for the WandaVision series on Disney+. However, in the Audible adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, she plays a very different beloved character, and she has a surprising story about how she came to the role.

In a video posted on Audible’s official Twitter, Dennings and Gaiman both shared their memories of striking up a friendship online following Dennings’ 2011 tweet about studying lines while listening to Gaiman read his book Coraline. “Oh man, the story of meeting Neil Gaiman is so magical,” said Dennings. “And I think I just tweeted out to him about listening to him talk and memorizing lines and eating sushi, something like that. And he answered! And it was like, what? What what what?”

Dennings went on to say that the exchange sparked “what is now a very long, amazing friendship,” which Gaiman confirmed, taking up the story from his own perspective. “We appeared to become friends,” he said, “in that, if I was in Los Angeles, I would always have dinner with — there would be three or four people I would always have dinner with, and Kat was always one of my friends at that table.”

As for joining The Sandman Audible project, Dennings mused, “I think we’d always been looking for a way to work together, ever since. And this is it!”

“And for Death I just figured she’d be great,” said Gaiman. “It was one of those things where I sent her an email saying, ‘Do you want to do this?’ …Got back lots of exclamation marks and happy faces and hearts.”

Dennings added, “Did not ask for any more details: The answer is yes, obviously.”

The character of Death of the Endless, older sister of Dream, will soon be appearing in live action in Netflix’s adaptation of The Sandman comics, portrayed by Kirby Howell-Baptiste. Denning’s voice as Death can be heard in The Sandman: Act II, directed by Dirk Maggs, now available on Audible with subscriber access here. She has also expressed her willingness to reprise the role of Darcy for the MCU, either in a WandaVision spinoff or another kind of project.

How Kat Dennings embodies Death for Audible’s The Sandman audiobook
Press Articles Projects The Sandman

The actress explains how she brings one of Neil Gaiman’s signature characters to life in audio form.

This past weekend, Netflix finally unveiled the first footage from its upcoming adaptation of  Neil Gaiman’s comic The Sandman. Although the footage did not include a look at Death, viewers of Netflix’s TUDUM event saw actress Kirby Howell-Baptiste speak about her portrayal of the character.

Death is one of the signature figures of The Sandman (so much so that she got a couple solo graphic novels in her own right after the original series concluded) and must be an integral part of any adaptation of the comic created by Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. While Howell-Baptiste takes on the signature silver ankh for the TV version, Kat Dennings has been voicing Death on Audible’s audiobook adaptation, which just released Act II last week. Dennings’ journey to playing the embodiment of mortality began with her brother showing her The Sandman as she was growing up, but really got in motion when she befriended Gaiman on Twitter years ago.

“We became Twitter friends through the miracle of the internet,” Dennings tells EW. “He’d always said, ‘I hope we can work together,’ and I would be like, ‘uh, me too!’ So one day he just texted and asked, ‘would you like to be the voice of Death? We’re making Sandman as an Audible original.’ She was always my favorite character, I could not believe it and agreed without any further thought. But I’ve since felt that pressure on my shoulders since we all love her so much. It’s a huge honor.”

From Gaiman’s point of view, Dennings could bring the cheeriness that makes Death so unique from pretty much every other depiction of the Grim Reaper.

“By that point I known Kat for about seven years,” Gaiman says. “I love a lot of things about her, including her voice and the range that she has, but most of all I loved the way that talking to her always cheers me up. One of the things I wanted in Death is a lightness. She has to be able to speak truth to Dream, she has to be instantly recognizable (especially in an audio context), and she has to be somebody that you’d just like to hang out with. And I thought, well, Kat actually has all of those, plus I knew she’s a fan.”

Death first appeared in The Sandman #8, an early chapter titled “The Sound of Her Wings.” Up until that point, protagonist Dream (also known as Morpheus) had been doing some pretty standard fantasy-quest stuff, reclaiming his relics of power from various corners of the universe after escaping a decades-long imprisonment. Having finished his quest, Morpheus feels a little morose. It’s then that his big sister comes in to remind him what life is all about (she would know, being the master of its opposite).

“I really enjoyed recording that scene,” Dennings says. “The cool thing about Death is her ‘job’ really goes against her adorable bubbly personality. Her storylines are obviously very serious and pretty dark, but her personality and attitude keeps it somewhat cheerful. And I think that’s something people really love about her. ‘Sound of Her Wings’ is sort of her most memorable chapter, even though it’s her first. All of the famous Death quotes kind of come from that. She sits down next to Dream and gets mad at him, they have this cute sibling argument. That was really fun, but the weight of that recording was not lost on me in the moment because I knew how much was riding on it for fans of the graphic novel.”

Act II was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic, where the world of back-to-back nightshoots had been replaced by one of remote video recordings. But Gaiman thinks Dennings’ performance has only improved in the second installment.

“I thought she was terrific in Act I, but it felt like she was figuring it all out. She was finding the character,” Gaiman says. “In Act II, she’s found the character. She knows exactly what she’s doing; we’re in the middle of this amazing family dinner and she keeps it all going and you believe her. When I created the character of Death, I loved the idea of somebody who, when they say, ‘you know, you really should have looked both ways before you crossed that street,’ you believe them. You get both regret and joy and all of those emotions.”

For her part, Dennings has also gotten used to embodying a character purely through her voice. Her own process doesn’t change much — especially since, by her own admission, she already dresses in black pretty much every day anyway.

“It’s more similar than you would think, for me anyway,” Dennings says. “While I’m doing these, if I don’t act them out the way I sort of would in a visual medium, it doesn’t come across quite right for me. I like to really get into it. It’s almost easier because I don’t have to think about what I look like and all that stuff, but you find yourself thinking about your voice. You never really do when you’re acting in front of a camera. I have a very weird voice and a very like odd way of talking. And I really become very conscious of that while we do these things. So I do try to control my voice a little bit more, which is an interesting exercise. You know, you can pick your voice up or down…you know, the options are endless.”

As endless, perhaps, as Death and Dream and the rest of their immortal siblings.

The Sandman: Act II is now available to listen on Audible.

Kat Dennings Tells Us How Neil Gaiman Honest-To-God Told Her To ‘Be Yourself’ While Playing Death In ‘The Sandman’
Press Articles Projects The Sandman

Fans of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman graphic novels have patiently waited for decades to see whether the genre-stretching, sprawling work would spring from the pages into, well, more. This dream, of course, has been a double-edged sword, and I wondered if the lack of an adaptation was probably for the better. After all, the dark fantasy saga (which leaps through time and space and rustles up dozens of characters, some fleeting, in the process) looks to be hellaciously difficult to adapt. Gaiman spoke to that sentiment after a few abbreviated Hollywood attempts while proclaming that “I’d rather see no Sandman movie made than a bad Sandman movie.”

Well, we didn’t get a movie and likely will never get a movie. That’s a very good thing, and even better: Audible recognized that The Sandman would fare well as a reading that’s packed with a star-studded cast. James McAvoy headlines as Morpheus, the God of Dreams, Michael Sheen appears as Lucifer. Brian Cox is Augustus, and there’s also Riz Ahmed, Samantha Morton, Andy Serkis, and too many more to name here. And in the unforgettable role of Death — the perky goth lady tasked with telling people that it’s their time to pass into another realm — is none other than Kat Dennings. The MCU actress (she portrayed Darcy Lewis in Thor and WandaVision, and we’ll likely see her in one more Marvel project) stretches here beyond the confines of her usual roles. As Death, she’s both silly and somber, and it’s hard to imagine a better voice for the role alongside McAvoy’s lugubrious take on Morpheus and the rest of her Endless siblings.

This project is not to be confused with the upcoming Netflix TV series (which will star Patton Oswalt as a raven) that’s currently in production. In contrast, the Audible Original is already trucking along after last year’s first installment encapsulated the first three graphic novels (Preludes and NocturnesThe Doll’s House, and Dream Country). Act 2 (with Season of MistsA Game Of YouFables And Reflections) will debut on September 22, and Death has a lot more on her plate for this batch of tales. Kat Dennings was gracious enough to talk about The Sandman and her Marvel adventures, too.

I am selfishly happy that The Sandman doesn’t have to incorporate Covid. Death is already busy enough at her job without a pandemic.

Yeah, well, she’s certainly an interesting character because she does have the hardest job, but she is the most powerful out of all of them. What I really liked about playing about her is that she’s sort-of this cheerful, bubbly personality, which goes directly against all of the dark stuff that is required of her. So that is really fun to play and a really twisty kind of mindset to get into. And it’s more so in Act 2. Act 1 had a lot of those scenes, but Act 2 touches on even more than that.

What’s funny is that she has the hardest job but still always puts family first.

[Laugh] Yeah, you’re right! She does. She tries to wrangle everybody and get them to simmer down and pay attention to what we’re doing. I love her, and I enjoy her so much.

She’s got a lot more to do during this Act, right?

Well, for anyone who has any familiarity with graphic novels, they know that they go across time, across space, and god, just everything that you can imagine. So, it’s hard to explain, but I will say that she has some really fun family interactions. You meet more of The Endless in Act 2, and I really did enjoy portraying that regular sibling kind-of banter between these extraordinary, immortal beings. That was a really fun element, so you can definitely look forward to more of that.

People have felt very comforted by Neil’s stories for decades. And The Sandman arrived at a very strange time for us in this world.

Oh yeah.

How did you hope that the Audible Original would be received right now, when life can seem like a nightmare?

Oh, you’re correct about that!

Sadly, yes, but I hope we’ll all eventually awaken.

You know, I think there is a nostalgia element for people with these graphic novels and who grew up reading them and loved them for so long, so that’s amazing. I’m very guilty of the nostalgia thing myself, especially with going through a hard time, nostalgia is a very nice place to be for me, anyway. I’ve found myself rewatching stuff that I liked when I was a kid. Like, oh my god.

Well, now you gotta tell me where nostalgia has led you lately.

Well, Labyrinth and Dark Crystal, things that I haven’t seen for a while. To revisit them, there’s this visceral experience that I think pretty much everyone gets. A time-travel-y, warm experience when you remember where you were the first time you watched them? So I think that’s one element, and the other thing is that this is an Audible Original, meaning that you don’t have to go anywhere. You don’t have to leave your house. You get to stay home and experience this long epic with a lot of other people. So it’s a shared experience (which is very hard now to have with other people, obviously because of what we’re all experiencing right now), but you are in the comfort of your home, and I say “long” in a good way. It takes a while to get through it, and that’s very comforting. So it’s the nostalgia thing, but it’s also very exciting because even fans of the graphic novel will be surprised at the individual actors’ takes on the scenes or whatever it is.

When I talked to Neil about Act 1, he said that he’d watched you in so many things, including 2 Broke Girls and thought, “She’s good, but they’re only asking her to do one of the hundred things that she can do.”

Awwwwwwwww.

And he loved that with Death, you get to do all those things.

That’s so sweet.

So, how did you do those hundred things? It seems intimidating.

Right, it is! I remember asking Neil at the beginning of this, “Like what should I do? How do you want me to play her?” Because this was his invention, and he just said, “Be yourself.” [Laughs]

No freaking way! That’s incredible on a few fronts.

And that’s how I play Death, but what he meant was that after knowing me for so many years, I think what he was saying was that I have a kind-of paradoxical thing about my personality. I can be very dark and mopey and whatnot, but I also have a very bubbly, cheerful side. I think that might be why he had me in mind for this character, but he wanted me to keep her bright side at the forefront because we do know what is going on in the scenes, and sometimes, playing exactly what is happening doesn’t exactly serve the emotions. And sometimes playing a little bit against what is happening in these scenes is a little more effective than just being obvious. And I’m not saying that I’m a world-class actor, but for these types of things, it’s very effective, so I kept it at the forefront of my mind.

The Sandman is not your first comic-book outing. How deep do you usually dive into source material?

It depends on who I’m playing. In my case, Darcy Lewis is a new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She’s in the comics now, but she was not when I first came through. So, there wasn’t much research for me to do, which was a relief because as you know, playing a beloved character comes with a lot of expectations. So I had an easy ride there, but in general, I actually try not to, well, I will familiarize myself with certain things in a scene, so I sound like I know what I’m talking about. But for me, I like to lessen the pressure on myself if possible, and also, I like to think about “what does this character actually know?” And I will just try to stay faithful to that. It’s kind-of a lazy way to do it, but it works for me.

Nerd fandom can be intense. How do you navigate that and how much attention do you pay to it, especially with people so invested in WandaVision?

I feel like I do a pretty good job at not paying too much attention, but in a positive way to WandaVision, I feel like the response to the whole series, and specifically to my character, was positive, and I never really expect that stuff because I’m very critical of myself, like all actors are, but it was so wonderful to get such a warm response from people. Once I saw how nice people were being, I did a little bit of a Twitter dive.

People were so excited to see Darcy and loved her buddy-comedy team-up at the end.

I was like, “This is the sweetest stuff that I’ve ever seen in my life, and also, I can’t read anymore!” You don’t wanna read bad things about yourself, but you also don’t want to read too many good things about yourself, just because it’s a slippery slope and kind-of a bad idea. But I certainly saw the positive feedback, and I appreciated it so much.

Final question time. If you could put Death and Darcy into different projects, whether that’s a TV show or movie, where would you want them to go?

Oh wow, that’s a tough order! I would like the character of Death to go into Golden Girls.

My god, I did not expect that answer, with Betty White and everything.

You can just imagine the hijinks. I think that is the height of comedy. And Darcy, oh boy. Well, now she’s Dr. Darcy Lewis, so she could go into some sort of a [laughs]… that’s complicated! I’m not sure where Darcy could go, really anywhere at this point.

Let’s just toss her into NCIS.

Yeahhhh! She can go right onto a procedural. CSI In Space. How about that? Or she could go into, oh god, what’s a good space show?

All For Mankind, maybe.

God, I’m so behind. Let’s just put her into CSI.

Thank you for humoring that weirdo question.

Oh, I love that question, thank you!

Kat Dennings On How She Feels About Natalie Portman In Thor: Love And Thunder And Whether Jane Misses Darcy
Press Articles

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is always growing, with characters returning after years away. Thor actors Kat Dennings and Natalie Portman certainly know this, as they were noticeably absent in Phase Three ahead of their returns in WandaVision and Thor: Love and Thunder respectively. And now Dennings has spoken about how she feels about her co-star’s Thor return, and whether Jane misses Darcy.

In the first Thor movie we met Kat Dennings and Natalie Portman’s characters, with the duo also appearing in the first sequel. But while Darcy returned in WandaVision, she’s not expected to star in Thor: Love and Thunder. Portman’s Jane will becoming Mighty Thor throughout the course of Taika Waititi’s sequel, and Dennings reacted to this news saying:

I thought it was genius. The most genius thing I’ve ever heard. It’s so brilliant. She’s a rockstar actor she can do anything. So I’m just so excited. As a fan, I’m just excited to watch it.

Same, though. While we won’t be seeing Darcy and Jane’s reunion in Thor: Love and Thunder, there’s no sore feelings for Kate Dennings. Instead, she’s eager to see Natalie Portman finally get superpowers of her own and get in on the action as Mighty Thor.

Kat Dennings’ comments to ET Online shows how even the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are ultimately big fans. And since she’s a personal friend of Natalie Portman, the Two Broke Girls alum has even more interest in seeing Mighty Thor come to life. Although comic book fans know that this transformation will likely come with some emotional material for Portman to grapple with.

Marvel fans can re-watch Kat Dennings and Natalie Portman in the MCU on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

Later in that same interview, Kat Dennings mused more about Darcy’s connection to Jane Foster. When asked if she thinks Jane misses her character, the WandaVision actress got honest. Namely about her not knowing much. As she put it,

I’d love to think so, I wish I knew more. I genuinely do. I’m also really curious for this stuff… they just don’t… you have to sign 75 NDAs and they still don’t tell you anything.

Solid point. While folks like Kevin Feige know the direction of the overall MCU, security on the shared universe is notoriously tight. As such, Kat Dennings isn’t privy to what’s happening in Thor: Love and Thunder. More specifically, what Darcy and Jane’s relationship might look like nowadays.

Regardless, it’s great to see the return of these Thor characters in Phase Four of the MCU. Because while we’re being introduced to a slew of new characters, some classic favorites are also returning. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all shakes out, and if Darcy and Jane ever appear together onscreen.

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently expected to arrive in theaters on May 6th, 2022. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.

Kat Dennings talks about her Royal Canin partnership, cat health, digital age, and motivations
Press Articles

Actress and social media influencer Kat Dennings chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about her partnership with Royal Canin, which advocates for cat health, as well as being an actress in the digital age, and she furnished her definition of the word success.

Dennings is known for playing Max Black in the CBS sitcom “2 Broke Girls,” as well as for her portrayal of Darcy Lewis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero films “Thor,” and “Thor: The Dark World” and the Disney+ mini-series “WandaVision.”

Royal Canin

“The partnership with Royal Canin has been amazing and I really love how they advocate for cat health,” she said. “I care so much about cats and their wellbeing – from fostering (I follow a lot of fosters on Instagram, so I love that this is a priority for Royal Canin!) to educating cat lovers to stay curious about their cat’s health.”

Dennings continued, “One thing I’ve learned through my partnership is, unfortunately, half of all cats in the United States don’t receive veterinary care regularly. I’ve also recently learned, 83 percent of cats visit the vet before their first birthday, but over 50 percent don’t return until they become sick or are in pain.”

“I’m partnering with Royal Canin to urge cat owners to pledge to take their cats to the vet for annual wellness visits as part of Royal Canin’s ‘Take Your Cat To The Vet Day’ initiative,” she added.

For the cat lovers out there, she remarked, “To all my fellow cat lovers out there – please take your cat to the vet! Most cat owners say that when their cat is acting healthy, they don’t pay attention to the signs of aging, and are not sure what signs to even look for.”

“Unnoticed signs add up to cat owners not taking their cats to the vet on a yearly basis, which could lead to larger health issues, like a renal or urinary disease. Royal Canin and I are asking everyone to take the pledge to take their cat to the vet every year. Head on over to www.royalcanin.com/cathealth to take the pledge and learn more about cat health,” she said.

Motivations

Regarding her daily motivations as an actress, she said, “Even after acting for 25 years, I still can’t believe I get to essentially play pretend for a living. I feel lucky every day to do what I do!”

For young and aspiring actors, she said, “The world of acting, and the world itself, is constantly changing. Know that you’re never alone – lean on your friends and family if you have to – and be prepared to roll with the punches.”

Digital age

On being an actress in the digital age, she said, “Being an actress in the digital age has taught me a lot about the importance of adapting throughout my career. Growing up, you only had access to shows once a week or could only see a movie in the theater, then have to wait for it to come out on DVD/VHS!”

“Today, the game has totally changed,” she admitted. “Everything – new and old – is so accessible. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I think it’s exciting. It gives audiences new ways to access your work, whether it’s safely watching it in the comfort of their own home during these crazy times or visiting the theaters.”

Regarding her definition of the word success, she concluded, “Living a life that feels authentic and fulfilling.”

Kat Dennings on If She’d Return for Another ‘Thor’ Movie or Jimmy Woo Team-up After ‘WandaVision’
Press Articles

Marvel fans were pleasantly surprised when Kat Dennings was cast in WandaVision, reprising her role as Darcy Lewis from Thor and Thor: The Dark World. The popular Marvel series became one of the most talked-about shows on Disney+ and stars Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff), Paul Bettany (Vision) and Kathryn Hahn (Agatha). During an exclusive interview with PopCulture.com, Dennings noted how excited she was to be asked to hop on board the project.

“I was very surprised and excited,” the actress said when asked if she was shocked that the MCU pulled her into the Marvel story. “At first, I just knew they wanted to bring Darcy back. When I heard it was for WandaVision, I was very intrigued. It’s such a unique project — I think the audience really appreciated the specialness of the show.”

Darcy was introduced in the Thor films after the former political science student turned scientist came into contact with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) upon his arrival to Earth. The 35-year-old’s character — alongside Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster and Stellan Skarsgård’s Erik Selvig — helped Thor emerge successful in his clashes in both movies. Being brought into the WandVision story was not something she or fans expected, but it was certainly interesting.

Hemsworth and Portman are currently busy filming the fourth installment in the Thor franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder. As of now, it’s not believed that Dennings will return for the film. However, she did admit she’s down for anything Marvel going forward. “I’m ALWAYS up for anything Marvel asks of me!” she gushed when asked if she would be up for another Thor movie.

She’s also open to another MCU project fans have been asking for since WandaVision’s season wrapped. Marvel fans are hoping Darcy and FBI agent Jimmy Woo (played by Randall Park) will reunite one day for their own spinoff. Dennings loves the idea, but it’s all up to the minds at Marvel Studios to make it a reality. “It’s always up to the powers that be,” Dennings said. “I think they took notice of all the comments. I would do it in a heartbeat!”

In the meantime, Dennings is keeping busy with a number of projects, including her recent partnership with Royal Canin for their “Take Your Cat to the Vet Day” initiative coming up on Aug. 22. “I absolutely love cats and I always have! My cat, Millie, has been such an important part of my life ever sine I adopted her. She’s also been my rock during the pandemic. We’ve spent so much time together and it really cemented that I want to continue making her health a priority,” she said on why she wanted to partner with the pet food brand. “Half of cats in the United States don’t receive regular veterinary care. Which, if you’ve ever been around cats, you know that they don’t always show when they’re sick or need help, and you may not notice signs that could lead to bigger health concerns.” Pet lovers can visit www.royalcanin.com/cathealth to pledge to take their furry friends to the vet.

Never in my life have I approached a brand ASKING to partner with them out of sheer adoration. As a passionate (yet not remotely professional) gardener, I’ve become obsessed with only allowing REAL FRUIT (not “natural flavor” – actual fruit) into my consumables. Once I realized that everything I was drinking was “flavored”, I went on the hunt. I discovered @drinkspindrift which is the FIRST sparkling water made with 100% ONLY REAL SQUEEZED FRUIT and I became an absolute psycho, slowly converting my friends and family to the Drifter lifestyle. I may be part Spindrift at this point, as it is actually the only water I drink. Anyway. More to come. #realfruittastesbetter#spindriftpartner
