    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!

    Assembled is the new documentary series arriving to Disney+ to show the behind the scenes of the new Marvel shows arriving to the platform. First up is WandaVision, premiering on March 12, promising fresh and deep looks into the production of the series. We’re looking forward to seeing Kat on set.

    February 17, 2021  Sparrow No comments Media, Press Articles

    WandaVision is the most talked-about TV show of 2021 so far.


    That is kind of to be expected, as the first Marvel Cinema Universe show on Disney+ was always going to be a big deal. But maybe what fans didn’t expect was for the show to be as strange as it is.

    Instead of superhero battles and sci-fi action, for the first few episodes viewers instead got homages to the sitcoms of yesteryear, with an additonal sinister, unnerving edge.

    The fourth episode finally pulled out into the wider MCU world, and gave us some clues as to what is going on. Returning characters Darcy Lewis (from the Thor movies) and Agent Jimmy Woo (first seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp) are now on the outside of Westview looking in, trying to figure out what is going on, just like the viewers at home.

    We caught up with the Darcy and Jimmy – or more accurately Kat Dennings and Randall Park, the actors that play them – to talk about what they thought when they first discovered what the show was about.

    “When I first got called in [by] Jac Schaeffer, the head writer, we sat in a conference room, and she had the whole show mapped out on the walls.” says Randall Park. “I was just so amazed.”

    “‘I was like ‘What is going on?'” adds Kat Dennings. “This is the craziest thing I have ever seen.'”

    “But seeing all of the work they put in to it, it all really makes sense,” she continued. “Everything you see has a payoff. There’s nothing put in purely by accident.”

    “There’s a huge payoff that I think people will be really excited for.”

    And based on what happens at the end of episode five, we are starting to see it all come together.

    Ahead of its broadcast, ET Canada reveals what to expect from Kat’s participation on today’s episode of The Ellen Show.

    The “WandaVision” actress spoke with Ellen DeGeneres for a segment on her show airing Monday, February 15, about her desire for an additional pet. Dennings explained she already has one “genius” cat, Millie, and wants another feline friend. However, Dennings worries that either Millie, 8, wouldn’t get along with the newbie or that the pair would form such a strong bond they would ignore her altogether. That line of thought led Kat to think that maybe she should adopt a rescue fox. Dennings also spoke to Ellen about a toaster mishap that arose out of a desperate desire for a warm cookie, and what it was like reprising the role of Darcy Lewis eight years after appearing in the first “Thor” movie.

    The Canadian website also released a video segment titled “Did Kat Tweet That?” where Ellen has Kat play a guessing game of whether she did tweet that.
