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 [and Ryan Coogler]… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
