Kat Dennings’ future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be in question but that has not stopped her for being excited for Natalie Portman’s return for Thor: Love and Thunder.
During a recent interview with People.com, Kat Dennings opened up a bit about Natalie Portman returning to the MCU and her wielding Thor’s hammer. In it, she called the decision genius and something that was accurate to the comics:
“I love that. I think that’s genius. It is so smart, and it’s accurate [from the comics]. I am so excited. As a fan of Marvel projects, I am so excited.”
Later on, Kat Dennings praised director Taika Waititi and said that she was excited to see what he would do for the upcoming Thor film. She did, however, continued to reinforce the fact that she doesn’t know if she’ll be back with Natalie Portman for Thor: Love and Thunder:
“I hope so! We’d all like to know that answer, I don’t know as of right now. I would like to, I am a huge fan of [director Taika Watiti], he’s one of my favorite directors of all time. He’s incredible. So purely from a thing of I love all of those people, I love Marvel and I would love to go back. I also really want to work with him, but I don’t know.”
From the look of things, even if Kat Dennings won’t be in Thor: Love and Thunder she is still excited to see what they do by giving Natalie Portman the hammer.
Along with Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis and most of the other human characters that we met in Thor and Thor: The Dark World were absent from Thor: Ragnarok. But from the look of things, this upcoming Thor film is bringing back some of the old cast. So perhaps Kat Dennings return isn’t all that farfetched of an idea.

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
