CBMB: Rosario Dawson Cast in Daredevil

By Muuka Muyumba

Rosario Dawson has signed on for a key role in the Netflix series Daredevil. Marvel has not released the name of her character, but Dawson is set to play “…a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.”

Dawson is known for roles in such films as the Sin City films, He Got Game, Kids, 25th Hour, Men in Black II, and Eagle Eye. Dawson is also a serious nerd, having created and written for her own comic Occult Crime Taskforce. She also voiced Wonder Woman foe, Artemis, in DC Animation’s Wonder Woman feature.

“Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for ‘Marvel’s Daredevil,’” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”

Daredevil is supposed to start shooting soon, but ran into a slight hitch when the original writer/director Drew Goddard was hired to helm Sony‘s Sinister Six feature. Spartacus show runner Steven DeKnight was brought on to replace Goddard as the showrunner, but Goddard was to remain on an executive producer. Marvel recently announced that Charlie Cox would play Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio would play Wilson Fisk.

Daredevil will be the first of the Defenders to appear in a 13-episode mini-series on Netflix. Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist are to follow with the heroes coming together in a Defender mini-series.
