‘WandaVision’: Kat Dennings Signed an NDA and Had a ‘Secretive’ Meeting for Marvel Series
Kat Dennings has emerged as a key character in WandaVision, not only answering a lot of fans’ questions within the universe, but also providing much-needed comic relief in the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series. In a new interview, Dennings explained that she didn’t know much about WandaVision. When she knew that she was going to be on one of the Disney+ shows, she actually thought it could be a different one.
Kat Dennings is Darcy Lewis in ‘WandaVision’
With episode 4 of the show, the MCU officially reintroduced to Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo, who was last seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Dennings’ Darcy Lewis, who was last seen in Thor: The Dark World.
Wandavision stars Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany as the titular Wanda Maximoff and Vision, as well as Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn as Agnes.
According to the official logline provided by Marvel and Disney+, “the series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.”
Kat Dennings on being brought back to the MCU for ‘WandaVision’
In a recent interview, Dennings talked about being asked back for WandaVision and how she thought that she would be comnig back for a different show.
“There were two elements to this process. For me, one was just getting the call that they wanted me back, which was already a huge surprise,” said the actress. “And then hearing that it was WandaVision because I was aware of, you know, their new shows that they were all coming out with. And I was like, ‘Oh, it’s gotta be one of those, but I wonder which one it is. WandaVision was the one I least expected because Darcy Lewis has had no interaction with the world around the show.”
Kat Dennings was so surprised at the plans for the show
Dennings then explained how she went in a conference room and signed an NDA before she really knew the details of what would be going on.
“So this was a real left turn. And the process really was, I got the call didn’t know anything, [I] only kind of knew which show it was,” she explained. “And then I went to a very secretive conference room. I signed an NDA in the lobby, went into the room, and on the walls were all of the references and all of the things that they were planning forward. And it was crazy.”
Even after seeing the references, Dennings still had no idea what the show was planning but was ready for it all.
“I mean, I just was like, ‘What is this? This is like so surprising,” she continued. “So they’ve really pulled it off. And I’m so excited to be here, honestly.”
