6. KAT DENNINGS AS DARCY LEWIS IN 'THOR' (2011) AND 'THOR: THE DARK WORLD' (2013)
This is arguably not a significant enough role to make the list, and to make matters worse Lewis is not/was not an existing character from the comics, however Dennings steals every scene she’s in and makes you wish she was in the whole damn movie. I’m a big Natalie Portman fan, but Dennings performance makes you wish Thor would fall for Dennings smart mouth and “unconventional” curves rather than Foster’s smart brain and classic beauty. It really puts a fine point on the limitations of being a love interest. Dennings gets to do far more as the funny sidekick than she would ever get to do in the romantic lead role, though that speaks volumes about how small-minded we are in our approach to romantic leads/relationships. In fact, now that I think about it some more, I don’t wish that Thor would fall for Dennings at all, instead I wish that Darcy would be involved in some kind of intern lab accident, get superpowers, and get her own film. Cause I would watch the CRAP out of Kat Dennings’s Darcy tearing stuff up with her sarcastic wit AND bare hands.
Good god. Someone make that happen, please.
