As Entertainment Weekly is all up on WandaVision, new details concerning the Disney+ series are dropping online nonstop. Naturally, fans of Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany have their plate full but what of our Kat? So far, the beloved Darcy remains conspicuously absent from publicity stills and other teasers. EW even jokes:
Darcy the intern returns! Kat Dennings’ wise-cracking poli-sci student debuted in the Thor movies, as the assistant to Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. Where’s she been for the last seven years? How does she cross paths with Wanda and Vision? And did she ever learn how to pronounce “Mjolnir” correctly?
Well, we don’t know if Darcy has sorted her phonetics yet but we know head-writer Jac Schaeffer has promised a “delightfully meta twist” based on the fact Kat is best known for working on 2 Broke Girls. As we know, WandaVision is heavily inspired by the world of television in general and of sitcoms in particular.
Does this mean we’ll get to see Darcy serving tables? We cannot say. Schaeffer, however, commented it was “particularly fun to bring two veteran sitcom performers into the mix” in reference to Kat and Randall Park, who reprises his role as Jimmy Woo, and who is perhaps best known for his work as the patriarchal character in the comedy series Fresh Off The Boat.
We will keep you posted on Darcy newness as more WandaVision information is released to the public.
