Kat Dennings will return for Thor: The Dark World

08.21.2012

The lovely curve-o-licious Kate Dennings is back on for THOR: THE DARK WORLD.

The actress will reprise her role as Darcy Lewis, friend to Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Dennings has received more attention since her show, 2 BROKE GIRLS became a hit for CBS. Perhaps that success is the reason that she now has "more extended role" in the THOR sequel.

Last year, Dennings said this about her character, "She's kind of like a cute, clueless, little puppy or maybe a hamster. There wasn't much on the page for the Darcy role to begin with and I didn't even see a script before I took the job so I didn't really know who Darcy was at first. But she really evolved — she's so much fun now even. She's very Scooby-Doo if that makes sense. She's always three steps behind and reacting to what's happening with these great expressions ... She gets things wrong and doesn't care."

I've heard a few people say that Dennings (aside from her hottness) was their least favorite thing about the movie. Something about the character being "annoying". I didn't get that. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I am a fan of Dennings. I just saw it the same as she explained above, the character just has a sort of puppy dog, cluelessness.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD is set to release on November 8, 2013.

Worst part about her character in Thor was that they put her in way too much clothing. I guess if Thor got a good look at that rack he would have said "Jane Who?"

Yay! Really liked her in the first film, the "comic relief kid sidekick" role is normally given to boys (Jimmy Olsen, Short Round etc) and it was refreshing to see a chick serve that function in the story. Oh, and she's hawt too.

Sure, she didn't have a lot to do in Thor, but her character brought a whole lot of humor to the movie, even though Thor himself was hilarious too "I need a horse!". One of my favorite aspects of the film, was how well they portrayed the fish-out-of-water moments that arise when you couple a god with a bunch 21st century humans.

And now I shall leave you with this:

Jane Foster: Years of research, gone.
Darcy: They even took my iPod.
Erik Selvig: What about the backups?
Jane Foster:

Jane Foster: They took our backups. They took the backups of our backups. They were extremely thorough.
Darcy: I just downloaded, like, 30 songs onto there.

Yay for character continuity! Yeah, Darcy was basically created for the "twitter generation" but I liked her, her pronunciation of Mjolnir cracked me up.

Awesome

I love her on "2 Broke Girls" and she's my celebrity crush right now. Super hot. She also has a pretty good career in stuff already. I thought both "Charley Bartlet" and "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" were underrated movies. She's not a great actress, but she does what she does well enough and so sexy

Ah shit.

She WAS the worst thing about the first movie. I can't wait to hear the six lines of dialogue she might have in the next movie. Hopefully like the last film they can be all be references to modern fads with such witty dialogue as "this is going on Facebook" or "they even took my iPod, I just downloaded like, 30 songs on to there". Or maybe she'll have lines as incredibly hilarious and smart as "You know, for a crazy homeless person, he's pretty cut."

It's not her fault, but ALL of her

It's not her fault, but ALL of her limited dialogue and thus her "character" was inane and pointless.
