Rosario Dawson talks season two of Daredevil, crossovers, and the Punisher

I've been late to board the Daredevil train, I'm just under halfway through at the moment, but one of the characters I've already grown quite attached to is Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple, aka Night Nurse. The actress was on hand at E3 this week due to her involvement in Call of Duty: Black Ops III where she spoke with MTV about the series and why she thought the fans had connected with her character as much as they did:

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.

Last week we learned that The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal had been cast in the role of the Punisher and would be making his debut on Daredevil's second season. I'm quite pleased with Bernthal's casting, he's got a great intensity, and Dawson herself is looking forward to finding out how Daredevil will react to the Punisher:

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

The Punisher isn't the only character whose season two arc Rosario Dawson is interested in, she's also anxious to find out where her own character will go now that her eyes have been opened to a different world.

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.

It's a relief to know that not only will she be back to reprise her role in Daredevil's second season, but Rosario Dawson will also putting in appearances in one, if not several, of Marvel's other upcoming Netflix series:

I have no idea how they’re wanting me to come back or in which way, shape or form, 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.

Daredevil's first season is currently streaming on Netflix, with the second season set to follow in 2016.

SPOILER ALERT WARNING.

I found it very odd the way she just disappeared from the story. Still, I suppose with the Russians gone and Murdock patched up for the time being, what else was she supposed to do in every episode? Deborah Ann Woll's Karen Page was part of Murdock's day job...and a key part of the Kingpin story so made sense she had more screen time.

I thought it was explained in the show, can't remember the specific episode, that after the events she was exposed to she chose to distance herself from Matt Murdock because she didn't want to be wrapped up in all of that.

Yes, that's how it went down...but still seemed odd to use an actress of that caliber that way. I guess if a lesser actress had played Claire Temple and left that way it would have gone down much easier. As it is, after all she did for Murdock and had been through, she packed it in just like that. Almost felt like the writers ran out of ways to keep her in it.

I've loved Rosario Dawson in everything she's done

and I thought she was criminally underused in Daredevil S1. I hope she has a bigger role in S2 and she really becomes the glue to hold these new Marvel TV series together.

I'm guessing they're setting The Punisher as the villain for season 2 and I'd love to see Daredevil vs. The Punisher, like Daredevil vs. The Kingpin. That Final Fight was epic!

If you're enjoying her character halfway through Season 1.....

You might want to stop watching now. I was really disappointed that her arc was basically eliminated after she was one of the best things about the episodes she was prominently featured in.

Great show and it just got better as it went along, but I hope they make her a bigger part of Season 2. She's far more interesting than any of the other supporting cast.

Enjoyed her portrayal in Daredevil. Hope to see her return in a much bigger way and also in the other Marvel series on Netflix (in some capacity) as well.
