WandaVision has brought some great new actors into the picture. We’ve got Kathryn Hahn doing a remarkable job as Agnes. Teyonah Parris has been quite amazing as the older Monica Rambeau. Josh Stamberg is cranking up the heat as SWORD’s Acting Director, Tyler Hayward. Evan Peters has just showed up as Quicksilver. And then there are all the new characters inside Wanda’s bubble. But besides all these new names, we’ve got a couple of familiar faces that everyone’s absolutely loving. Kat Dennings has returned as Dr. Darcy Short from the Thor franchise, and people are wondering if she will return in Thor 4.
For now, she has formed a nice little pair with Randal Park’s Jimmy Woo. People are loving Darcy and Jimmy so much that they’re actually asking for a spinoff series based on them. While that won’t happen, we’ve still got high hopes for at least Darcy to return in future projects. Since she is a Thor franchise character, people have been asking her about her return in Thor: Love and Thunder. But she has been repeatedly denying that. Here’s what she told Extra TV when asked about Thor 4: “I’ve been asked, and I still don’t know. I’m gonna say, ‘No’ only because they’re shooting it.”
Well, it is a common norm for all MCU actors deny their roles in upcoming projects. But because Thor 4 is currently under production in Sydney and Kat Dennings is not there, we could take her word for it. So, Darcy probably won’t be joining the likes of Jane Foster in the film, unless something changes in the next couple of months. But, we’ve still got some great news for all you Darcy fans out there. Dennings went on to say that she has already worked on another MCU project. She said, “There are some things I’ve done for Marvel that are coming out that are not this, but I probably can’t say.”
It is quite unlikely that she was a part of Black Widow, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, Shang-Chi, Eternals, or even Homecoming 3’s production. Considering that WandaVision will connect with Doctor Strange 2, there’s a minor possibility that Dennings might have shot something for it. But again, the production has been happening in the UK. So, Darcy’s return there may not be possible after all. The only project that is left for her return is Marvel’s What if…? series. Since every other MCU actor has voiced their MCU characters for this show, Dennings must have recorded some dialogues for Darcy’s role as well. And that’s probably what she was referring to while speaking with Extra TV.
It will be interesting to see which other MCU projects could bring Darcy Lewis back. I bet the Secret Invasion series could be one of them. Would you guys like that? Tell us in the comments section.
