Thor: The Dark World wouldnâ€™t be as much fun of a sequel without Kat Dennings, who starred in Thor as a political science student who gets misplaced with the wrong internship and caught up in the battle of the cosmos along with Natalie Portman and Stellen Skarsgard. Her quick wit and sarcasm provided some great humor for the movie and now she is officially signed on to appear in the sequel, which is expected to start shooting this fall.
As to the reason why it might have taken so long to get her signed on, well, it’s because of her commitment to the hit CBS comedy, Two Broke Girls. According to Deadline, all of that has been worked out. She even gets an expanded role in the sequel, which means she could do more than just mispronounce Mjolnir on multiple occasions. She certainly deserves to do more than just spew out a few witty one-liners. So we’ll see what she can do when the time comes.
Dennings joins Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins,Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and newcomers Christopher Ecceleston and Alice Krige. Thor: The Dark World will be directed by Alan Taylor, who uses a script written by Robert Rodat.
Thor: The Dark World will open in theaters on November 8, 2013.
