Natalie Portman’s sidekick and Thor’s comic relief Kat Dennings will return for the superhero sequel.
Dennings is busy at work on her show 2 Broke Girls and some feared she wouldn’t have time in her schedule to return. They also feared now that she is starring in her own sitcom, she wouldn’t want to come back or might be too expensive.
I appears those fears can be alleviated, and her character Darcy Lewis may do more than fawn over Thor’s muscles this time around.

Thor: The Dark World isn’t set to be released for another year and details are scant. But, more and more details are slowly being discovered.
Marvel president Kevin Feige has said, “Thor 2 will primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for the Nine Worlds.”
It’s not certain how Ms. Dennings fits into that equation, but Deadline reports that her role has been expanded from the comic relief sidekick she played to Natalie Portman in the first Thor.
