After appearing in the first two Thor movies, Kat Dennings has returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the Disney+ show WandaVision.
Her character, Darcy Lewis, is one of the few original creations in the MCU that is not based on an existing comic book figure. That makes Darcy somewhat of a blank slate, and she could potentially turn up anywhere in the movies.
We got to speak to Kat Dennings, following her WandaVision come back, and asked who in the MCU she would like to see Darcy team up with. And she was very sure of here answer: Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.
In case you were not aware, Darcy and Loki are a pretty popular pairing amongst Marvel fans, often appearing in fan fiction and fan art. And Kat Dennings was keen to stoke the flames of the Marvel stan fire, and try and make it happen in canon.
“I know that there’s a lot of online stuff about Darcy and Loki, that’s been brought to my attention, which is so great,” said Dennings. “So I’ll hope for that.”
“I think it would be exciting for a few people on Tumblr. Do it for the Tumblr.”
“It would be a funny pairing. The two most opposite characters in the MCU. probably.”
This isn’t the first time she has alluded to the pairing – she shared a photo of her and Tom Hiddleston together when Thor: The Dark World was released back in 2013.
Dennings went on to talk about how Darcy’s new role as a doctor of astrophysics could see her “plopped” in anywhere in the MCU.
“The cool thing about Darcy being an original character and… now she’s Dr Darcy Lewis, she’s an astrophysicist, she’s kind of fair game for any interaction, which is very exciting.
“Of course, I wouldn’t expect anything further, but she could be plopped anywhere, I guess.”
