Rosario Dawson's Daredevil character set for multiple Marvel-Netflix series

05.08.2015

She may not be Nick Fury, but Claire Temple looks like she is going to be the connective character that holds together Marvel's Netflix series. Marvel/a> reports that Dawson has struck a deal to return for the second season of Daredevil as well as other upcoming series. Whether that means AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist or all three remains to be seen.

Dawson only appeared in five episodes of Daredevil's first season. Many critics felt she was underused and seemed to be front-loaded in the first half of the season before disappearing. Her character, Claire Temple, served as a brief love interest for Charlie Cox's lead character as well as a medical resource for the ailing superhero. The character was based partially on the Marvel Comics character of Night Nurse who helps injured heroes. She could easily appear in the same capacity on any of the Marvel series on Netflix.

Season two of Daredevil is set to air in 2016 with the main cast all returning. Plot-lines are under wraps but with only AKA Jessica Jones in production at this point and Luke Cage aiming for a premiere next year, we could see each season of Daredevil as an introduction to each additional superhero set for the streaming service, leading up to their team-up in The Defenders mini-series. Here's hoping all of this is in preparation for the heroes to appear in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.

Daredevil's first season is now streaming on Netflix.

This could make up for her handling in Daredevil. I wasn't super upset with it, except she did keep popping in well after her arc seemed to run its course. If she's the through-line for the Defenders series, then it's suddenly a lot more understandable.

Rosario's always good though, so having her continue the role is great. Especially after her stellar work in Top Five, I am ready for her to have a gig that really takes advantage of her talents. Claire's already proven to be a

More Rosario Dawson!

I love her as an actress, so I'm really happy to hear that she'll be reprising her character in more Marvel series.

She could be in the Spider-Man movie too

15/16 year old Peter Parker shows up at the hospital. Claire is about to call child services when Peter stops her and tells her he is Spider-Man.

They clearly had a problem balancing Claire with Karen (and Foggy) and unlike other shows with a limited episode run, Daredevil really only has one main lead and everything revolves around him so not sure how they can address the issue of giving one more of a role than the other. I suppose it would help if the rest of the team know about her (well, Foggy does but they never showed that scene) but would that make any sense? She's at work in a hospital during the day and then rest work in a law

Claire is a real wild-card. She started as a great character, and I enjoyed seeing her go from victim to fierce truth-seeker. However, she was kind of whiny and obnoxious toward the end, with wildly fluctuating behavior to suit the plot (and getting the reporter killed was a crazy shitty move on her part). They need to dial her back next season and concentrate on the more interesting characters. Let her develop more slowly, and don't reveal Matt as DD too soon. Foggy knowing is more than

Awesome!

She is simply superb on the show. I'm 2/3 of the way through the episodes and the worst thing about it is that she has been AWOL for a couple in a row. She brings a great perspective to that universe, and is the best of a remarkably good cast.
