Rosario Dawson will not reprise her role for Netflix's The Punisher series

100%

Well, this is a bummer. As it says in the headline, Rosario Dawson will not be returning as Claire Temple in Netflix's THE PUNISHER series. Dawson has been a mainstay in all the other Marvel shows on Netflix previously, and she's usually a highlight (and in IRON FIST, arguably the only good thing in it). She'll definitely be missed.

However, it makes sort of sense. Maybe she wouldn't agree with Frank Castle's methods enough to not want to help him. Or maybe he wouldn't trust her. This might also mean the show will be set in the past (gearing up to his origin) rather than his adventures post-DAREDEVIL, meaning he wouldn't be interacting with her anyway. Though, that's all conjecture at this point.

So what do you Schmoes think? Will you miss Night Nurse? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile, THE PUNISHER will be punishing on Netflix this fall.

Extra Tidbit: At one point, Frank Castle died and became an undead angel of death. Why can't we get THAT version of The Punisher?

I would expect to see Deborah Ann Woll's character to show up first anyway considering the connection Frank and her had.

Plus there's only so many times you can keep not seeing Stark Tower. There's so many other Marvel landmarks out there to not see, y'know?

It really wouldn't make sense to have her in the Punisher. She's fine in the other shows. It's not like she wont be back in the other stuff.

Considering her place in this TV universe, having some type of relationship to everyone, I would not be surprised her death is the catalyst that gets everyone motivated to team up in The Defenders.

Makes sense. As a Nurse she had taken an oath to save lives, something Frank is 100% on the other side of. 2 Seasons of Daredevil, A season of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, I loved them, but Ironfist was...when she showed up, I was happy. She was the best thing to happen on that show so she clearly, imo, makes an impression. Also, she is insanely easy on the eyes so who wouldn't want to see more Rosario?!
I gave this a Green because I think he not being in Punisher is a good move. She wouldn't

I'll miss her, but I think it makes sense. Frank Castle is the opposite of what heroes like Daredevil and Luke Cage represent. Claire got a lot of mileage out of being the foil to those characters. But the Punisher is just a righteous killer. She has hinted herself at being not the most forgiving person, so I doubt that she would have the same balancing dynamic with Castle that she had with the pious Murdock.
