WandaVision Ending Offers “Big Payoff,” Promises Kat Dennings

WandaVision star Kat Dennings admitted that the series is intentionally confusing its audience, for now. However, Thor’s former student promised that everything will be resolved in the series finale.

Dennings appeared as a virtual guest on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she discussed adding her character, Darcy Lewis, to WandaVision and what fans can expect from the miniseries. Dennings said about the role of his character in the series: « The first three episodes are intended to confuse and disconcert the public and finally someone who represents the public appears and tells them, more or less, what is happening, we believe. »

While the hit Marvel series has been shrouded in secrets, shedding multiple red herrings, and inspiring countless fan theories, Dennings hopes audiences will hang on, because it all makes sense. « It’s a mystery to the end, » Dennings said. « Each episode builds and builds and I don’t really know what happens, but there is a huge ending to almost everything in the series. »

Dennings made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor in 2011 and returned for the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. Dennings thanks WandaVision screenwriter Jac Schaeffer for giving his character « a whole new life » on the Disney + series as he works to solve the mystery surrounding Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch’s tenuous sanity. Lewis began as Jane Foster’s research assistant before becoming a scientist and using her experience with the Asgardians to explain what has been referred to in the series as the Westview Anomaly.

The Barrymore show host praised everyone in the studio for « having the backbone to unravel this mystery, demanding patience, and creating something other than a know-it-all spoon trip. » Dennings smiled and agreed with Barrymore’s praise saying, « One hundred percent, and I encourage people to pay attention while watching. »

Marvel Studios presents WandaVision, a mix of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision – two beings with superpowers who live an idealized suburban life – begin to suspect that not everything is what it seems.
