CBTVB: Rosario Dawson Keen to Return for Daredevil Season 2

By Muuka Muyumba

In an interview with MTV Movies, Dawson opened up about the success of season 1 of Daredevil and the popularity of her character, Claire Temple. “She’s funny, she’s wry, she’s strong — she’s built for that world, because she’s great under pressure. She’s someone — hero or not — you’d want to have in a dire situation… I really just liked her arc all the way through.”

“I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes, because her eyes have been opened up to this other world — and she’s crossed the line. You know, this is someone who helps people, and she’s been violent now but seeing the need for it. I think there’s a lot that she’s having to grapple with, and I think that’s what’s exciting about using this show to explore street-level characters: it makes it that much more closer to us.”

Dawson also gave some interesting hints as to where things might be heading in season 2 as well as beyond that series since her character’s history if interwoven with Luke Cage’s (Mike Colter) as well.

“Even just having Night Nurse and Claire Temple come together was already changing the Marvel Universe,” Dawson continued. “So it just feels like, A) I finally get to join Marvel. I get to do it in a way that’s completely altering the universe, which is awesome. And then, B) I have no idea where it’s going to go, because here I was having a fling with Matt Murdock, and now Luke Cage is coming up, and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).”

A comic book aficionado herself, Dawson is also geeked about the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) joining the fight in season 2 and what that could mean for Daredevil’s (Charlie Cox) efforts to keep Hell’s Kitchen clean after Wilson Fisk’s imprisonment.

“That’s going to raise the stakes so much more, because Matt Murdock almost behaves like the Punisher in the first season,” she said. “[Matt] crosses the line quite often, so it’s going to be really interesting to see how they differentiate them and where that goes.”

Finally, Dawson acknowledges that she may have found the sweet spot for her character of combining her relationships with her desire to help Matt and Luke keep Hell’s Kitchen a safe place. Some suggest that she could become a hero herself, but other are more resolute that she will be the rallying cry for the Defenders. The question might become with she will be their Coulson or their Fury.

“I have no idea how they’re wanting me to come back or in which way, shape or form,” Dawson said, “but it’s nice to know that I’ve got a character who does kind of string everyone together and bring all those worlds together.”

She cares so deeply that there are even some online suggesting that she will be the Defenders’ Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). We will see soon as Daredevil prepares for a second season set to start filming at the end of this year for a 2016 release.
