Darcy is portrayed by Kat Dennings.
Darcy is slender and stands at a pretty average height. She's shown as an average college student with black glasses, brown eyes and clean brown hair to match. Darcy is usually seen wearing a red hat.
Spending her life surrounded by scientists, Darcy is shown to be the embodiment of a lovable sidekick by blatantly showcasing some of their most desirable traits. She is intelligent, though arguably not as smart as Jane since she's oblivious to science, helpful, constantly putting her knowledge to good use, and caring. She and her employers (Jane and Erik) have similar goals: to conduct research ideal for their occupation, first, and in solving the mystery behind the man they found in New Mexico's desert. On the downside, Darcy is incredibly emotional and impulsive, often expressing herself in over-the-top or insensitive ways and tasering Thor without a second thought. Dr. Selvig and Jane are somewhat less charitable in their regard for her, often telling her to be quiet or scoffing at her.
- “What? He was freaking me out!”
- ―Darcy defending her tasering of Thor
Darcy Lewis is Jane Foster's intern, a quirky but quick-thinking political science major who found herself in the middle of Earth's first contact with an alien civilization, and while she doesn't always understand everything that's happening around her, she doesn't hesitate to speak up about it. When Thor Odinson arrives on Earth, Darcy tasers him with a masterful flick at his busom, claiming that he was freaking her out.
- “I should not have to do this. I don't get paid enough. In fact, I don't think I get paid at all.”
When Jane discovers an ancient cosmological event affecting the Earth, it's Darcy who has to pick up the slack when Jane disappears.
After Jane goes to Asgard, Darcy and Ian try to contact Selvig while she called him on the phone, Ian watches the news and finds out what happened to Erik, then she and Ian goes to the asylum to seek Erik. When Selvig sees Darcy he does not recognize but almost immediately he remembers her.
During the Battle of Greenwich, Darcy kisses Ian for saving her life before they reunite with Jane and the others. Later, she was present when Thor returned to Earth.
One of Darcy's closest friends was Jane Foster. The two agreed on pretty much everything and constantly operated together, though Jane often seems annoyed by Darcy's energy. Darcy also tries to get Jane to relax, joking with her on several occasions and getting a stark variety of reactions to her sense of humor from Jane.
It is unknown how long Darcy has been working for Professor Erik Selvig, but she seemed to have established a good relationship with her boss.
Darcy was close to Ian Boothby, her boyfriend and a fellow worker under Erik Selvig. They were once seen making out by Jane Foster, much to Darcy's embarrassment.
Darcy and Thor got off to a bad start, after she tasered him. However, they eventually got over it after Darcy realized she found him to be incredibly attractive. As two close friends of Jane's, Darcy had respect for Thor's tendency not to exactly stay out of life-threatening trouble. She was usually happy to help him out. He acts friendly toward her, and she gives him the same respect, but the two had little contact.
- In early versions of the movie, Darcy was originally written as a male character.
- As a running gag, she mistakenly, yet repeatedly calls Mjolnir "myuh myuh", after she hears Thor talk about it in the first Thor film. She still has not been informed of the correct way to pronounce it.
