Fans may have guessed which role Kat Dennings plays in Thor, and Cameron talks Avatar. Meanwhile there's an iconic new Iron Man image. Plus, clips from The Lovely Bones and Chuck, an image from Tennant's last hurrah, and Zombieland news.
Although initial speculation had Kat Dennings playing the Enchantress, some folks think it's more likely that she'll be playing college student Marcy Lewis based on the previously mentioned casting call:
[MARCY LEWIS] (20) Is a college student. Aloof, jaded beyond her years, she thought her internship with scientist Kate Spelling would be an easy 6 college credits. However, she's been stuck for months in this small New Mexico town and relegated to a wide range of unglamorous activities. Kate has been particularly hard on Marcy, making it her personal project to see that Marcy lives up to her potential. Marcy deals with her situation both by using subtle irony and by being an overt wiseass.
After all, Dennings is known for playing overt wiseasses. [Cinema Blend]
