WandaVision Star Kat Dennings Reacts To Disney's Moon Knight

WandaVision star Kat Dennings claims to have liked Moon Knight so much that it compelled her to dream about it, “which is actually pretty messed up.”

WandaVision’s Kat Dennings, who plays Darcy Lewis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shares her reaction to Disney+’s Moon Knight. Following WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, and Hawkeye, Moon Knight is the latest MCU show to premiere on Disney+. Jeremy Slater serves as showrunner of the six-episode series, which is directed by Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab’s team, which consists of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Oscar Isaac stars in Moon Knight as its titular anti-hero alongside Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, May Calamawy as Layla El-Faouly, the late Gaspard Ulliel as Anton Mogart/Midnight Man, and F. Murray Abraham as the Egyptian god Khonshu.

The series follows Steven Grant (Isaac), a mild-manner “gift-shopper” who’s unknowingly a part of a dissociate identity disorder (DID) system. He believes himself to be sleepwalking when, in reality, the mercenary Marc Spector is in control when Steven lays dormant. This situation is complicated by Marc’s life-saving pact with Khonshu, who uses Steven and Marc’s body as an avatar. Moon Knight’s first episode dropped on March 30 and has since been praised by many on social media, including MCU veteran, Dennings.

Dennings recently took to Twitter to share her reaction to Moon Knight’s pilot episode. Ironically, she claims to have enjoyed it so much that she even dreamed about it. Check out the tweet below:

As an origin story for the titular character, Moon Knight is quickly separating itself from other MCU shows. Its tone has been described as being a mix between Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, and Fight Club — which is proving to be an adept assessment. By following Steven, rather than Marc, Moon Knight’s main character serves as a (unreliable) surrogate for audiences in a way that’s comparable to The Narrator’s experience in Fight Club. Compile that with Marc’s globe-trotting adventures aimed at preventing a cult leader from resurrecting the Egyptian goddess/demoness Amitt, and it’s the thing Dennings’ dreams are made of.

Wednesday, Moon Knight released its second episode. The series is already a hit with MCU stars, critics, and audiences alike with an 86% critics score and a 94% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. That said, Isaac’s future in the MCU remains up in the air as his contract with Disney/Marvel Studios currently doesn’t extend beyond Moon Knight. As for Dennings, who appeared in Thor (2010), Thor: The Dark World (2013) and WandaVision, it doesn’t look like she will be returning as Darcy in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. However, Dennings recently voiced her character in an episode of Disney+’s What If..?. Presumably, fans will be seeing more of Steven/Marc and Darcy in the future.
