Kat Dennings Confirmed To Return For THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Kat Dennings will be reprising her supporting/comic relief role of Darcy from 2011’s Thor in the upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World.

For a while, it looked doubtful that Dennings would return to the franchise given that the film’s currently in production status is presumably conflicting with production of her sitcom 2 Broke Girls, whose debut season was one of CBS’s few breakout hits last year. Deadline‘s report had no information as to how that conflict was being resolved but presumably the series is taking a short hiatus while she is in London shooting her scenes.

It is also being reported that Denning’s role is being expanded, possibly in response to her higher profile thanks to 2 Broke Girls. Given that we have been told that the script will be exploring more of the mystical realms that Thor’s home world of Asgard inhabits it should be interesting to see how Darcy and the other Earth-bound characters fit into the scheme of things.

Dennings return marks the last of the first film’s major cast to be confirmed as returning for the sequel.

Thor: The Dark World will star Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins,Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Tadanobu Asano, Stellan Skarsgardand and Ray Stevenson and is set for a November 8, 2013 release.
