There isn't a Darcy character in Cap so I think this will be much better than TDW, which I did enjoy in spite of its flaws.
Darcy was one of the biggest problems I had with TDW, not just the lame humor surrounding her (and her intern ) but also the fact that time wasted with her scenes would have been better spent on major characters from the comic book. Some of the deleted scenes could have been kept had Darcy's scenes (and some of Selvig's) been deleted or trimmed back. Characters who exist solely for comic relief are out of place in these films.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
