Re: Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis
Yeah, it does fail unfortunately. Just a small, tiny misstep from Joss. Although he gets major bonus points from me for not rendering the major female character a love interest alone... of course, this is one of the reasons why I love the Marvel Studio movies. The female characters are far greater than simply being the girlfriend of the hero.
I have a feeling he'll fix this issue in TA2. Also I'm hoping for more female characters, obviously.
"Joss Whedon, Shane Black, Edgar Wright, James Gunn… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
