I call photoshop on that. Kat looks super curvalicious in her sitcom.

I love Kat Dennings, I liked Darcy Lewis, and I'm super excited that she's returning, if only because she's pretty much the sole female character in the MCU who shares her scenes with another female. Bechdel Test, yo! Thor, for whatever faults it has, is probably the most fem-friendly Marvel movie yet.

Also, she actually has a not-insignificant online fanbase, if looking at Tumblr and fic sites can be a measure of these things.

lol thinking about it Thor might be the only Marvel movie that passes Bechdel, haha. Did Pepper/Widow talk business at all in IM2, or was it all (and by "all" I mean "both scenes" ) Tony?

Only in the background, if I recall - I should watch IM2 again. That's also pretty much my only complain about The Avengers too.

It's possible that Hill talked to another woman, perhaps Black Widow, in TA. Have to watch again to see.

I just saw Avengers Sunday night, and no, unfortunately there's no scene with Hill and Widow together.

That's too bad. So does The Avengers fail the Bechdel test then?

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.

(Sorry, every time I read a Captain Marvel issue my "Carol needs to be on film, like, yesterday" instinct kicks back in )


Anyway, Kat Dennings!

Same here.

Off topic, but, I would if she found her taser by Thor 2. Or bought a replacement. Speaking of, this does make me wonder about what her role would be --- after all, her internship would be over. SHIELD employee?

SHIELD employee, Jane's BFF/lab assistant, mortal embodiment of Hela...

Take your pick

I meant the rest of the photo. She doesn't look "trimmed down".

Face and arms look slimmer to me and I wasn't the only one to comment on her looking different. Her face alway looked slightly fuller to me before which I liked..

I hope Darcy dies quickly and brutally early in the film, by Kurse hearing her voice and standing on her.

Then Thor offers to buy him the first drink.

Man, some people have a death wish for Kat Dennings' Darcy. I mean, really? She may have been annoying in a few scenes in Thor, but she had a wonderful rapport with Natalie Portman. And her taser scenes were funny.

I don't see what the problem is with expanding her role in Thor 2 if it's integral to the story and not just because of Dennings' leading role in 2 Broke Girls.

Although after seeing the sitcom, they need to de-geek Darcy down and emphasize her sexier side. Anyone who's seen candid (i.e. leaked blog photos) or red carpet photos of Ms. Dennings know she's a helluva lot more stacked than Natalie and apparently nicer in person too.

Too bad her character is fairly useless to the story.

The purpose of Darcy's character is to help members of the general audience, who are not well versed in the entire history of the Nine Realms, to relate to the material. She may be useless to many posters here, because they are quite familiar with everything related to Thor and are already into it. But that doesn't mean she has no purpose at all. She helps expand the audience beyond that which reads the book, and therefore helps the movie to be more successful.

And who could fault Marvel for wanting more people to enjoy the MCU?

Does the term "expanded role" mean anything to you?

I'd wager (not really) that Darcy's role will be woven further into the Thorverse. We'll have to wait and see obviously, but her having an "expanded" role in T:TDW points that.

Also, I'm absolutely not ready to give up the sole female character who has a relationship with another female character in the MCU. I'm sure the studio's finding ways to integrate Darcy even further in the MCU, as they did with Selvig and Coulson.

That would be *very* interesting! What ideas do you have for how Darcy's role could be further woven into the Thor-verse?

Here's one: she is a political science major. So maybe if there are a lot of diplomacy issues or palace intrigue, she could have something to contribute drawing on her education.

(Just to be pedantic, if a female character has a relationship with another female character, then neither of them could be the *sole* female character with such a relationship )

To hang in there with one would mean to hang in there with the other one. It would be very cool for both of them to have ongoing ways to contribute to the (MCU) story (and not necessarily as love interest(s)).

I've read bits and pieces that suggest Marvel has some interest in addressing this issue. Here's hoping they stay the course!
