Default Re: Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis

Oh yeah, doing an image search, I see what you mean. It's a little creepy. . .

Having her turn out to be Hela would be a bit of a strain on continuity, though. For example, there's the story where Sif is in Hel (because some giant made a deal for immortality) and Thor offers his life in exchange for hers. Hela is so impressed by the nobility of the proposed sacrifice that she lets them both go. This was before Sif trained to be a warrior, so it would have taken place at least 900 years before Darcy was born.

And if it's not to be for Jane to be Thor's love interest, then I hope at least she can contribute to the overall storyline in the MCU. (I think there will be a lot of portals in future movies.) But of course I would prefer for both elements to work out.

And similarly for Darcy.

I have too I do know some fans are growing impatient, but I do believe that MS will improve in this area (as well as franchises featuring heroes of color.)
Yeah, that would be awesome too!
