It’s officially been a year since the premiere of Wanda Vision on Disney+. Since its debut, the memorable Marvel series has garnered numerous awards and nominations, including 3 Primetime Emmys. To celebrate her birthday and her accomplishments, Kat Dennings has shared a behind-the-scenes photo from one of her most memorable days on set.
Wanda Vision is not Dennings’ first appearance in an MCU project, as she has previously appeared in the Thor films alongside Natalie Portman and Stellan Skarsgård. As Darcy Lewis, Dennings was often used for comic relief and in sitcom-inspired series like Wanda Vision, it fits perfectly, even when the camera is not rolling.
In honour of Wanda VisionOn the one-year anniversary, Dennings took to social media to celebrate the milestone. Dennings shared a particularly memorable photograph from his time Wanda Vision, where she is seen in part of the Darcy Lewis costume worn in the seventh episode, “Breaking the Fourth Wall”. His Spanx’s leg has a noticeable tear, and Dennings couldn’t resist sharing the moment with Wanda Vision Fans. She captioned the photo: “It’s @wandavision’s one year anniversary so here I am breaking my spanx on my first day in circus attire.”
The “circus outfit” refers to the end of Wanda VisionThe sixth episode of “All-New Halloween Spectacular”, when Vision began to learn the truth about Westview. As he attempted to cross France, he began to disintegrate and his pain was felt by his son, Billy, who reported the near-tragedy to his mother. Wanda took control of the situation by moving the Hex Barrier through the SWORD camp stationed outside the Hex, enveloping them in Westview. Those engulfed by the Hex included Darcy, who had been handcuffed to one of the SWORD vehicles after calling for help for Vision.
The results of the new Hex Barrier were seen in “Breaking the Fourth Wall”, where Vision discovers Darcy with chains around her body. Under Wanda’s spell, Darcy informs Vision that she is an escape artist, which proves fitting for her character within Wanda’s Westview after Vision frees Darcy from Wanda’s hold on her. The two embark on a journey back to Wanda and Vision’s house, but find themselves thwarted by a comical roadblock every step of the way. Darcy and Vision’s adventures help revitalize Darcy within the MCU after not being seen since Thor: The Dark World in 2013.
With Westview’s vision now dead, the other vision off the grid, and Wanda isolating herself from humanity, it’s impossible to know when Darcy will reappear in the MCU. Considering the relationship she’s built with Monica and Jimmy, it’s possible she’ll be spotted alongside them. Monica could be seen in the next Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel before his role in Wonders, and Darcy could join her. Otherwise, Darcy will likely pop up wherever a scientific genius with impeccable comic timing is needed.
