With Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster kind of underdeveloped as a character in the Thor movies, a lot of MCU fans have pointed out that Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) is the more loveable of the two. What’s great is, Darcy is making a comeback in the MCU, and Dennings herself is teasing her return on Twitter.
While she didn’t appear in the latest trailer, IMDb does have Denning’s listed as a cast member for the upcoming show WandaVision. We don’t know what role she’ll play, but it’s likely that she’s connected with another defense organization, SWORD. Since she’s mostly worked in astrology in the films, I wonder how her skills would help when it comes to Wanda Maximoff.
Hopefully, Darcy’s appearance in WandaVision will open doors for her to come back in Thor: Love and Thunder. Dennings has said that she wanted to come back to the role, and honestly, I always thought that Darcy was one of the more fun parts of the Thor films. Let’s just hope they gave Jane some significant character development as well.
We don’t have a specific release date for WandaVision yet, but it has been confirmed that the show will come out near the end of 2020. With Eternals coming out in November, I think a December premiere would be a realistic guess.
The first MCU Disney+ show, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, is rumored for a release this coming August.
Here is a video mentioning the list of characters/actors who will make a comeback in 2021.
