Re: Thor 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2013
I'll repeat what I said to Admiral Young on Facebook. Darcy is the "everyman" character. The one that represents the audience, so she can ask the questions that most of us are thinking.
Such characters can be vastly better handled than someone worrying over the loss of their iPod. (See: Winston in Ghostbusters.)
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
