Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actress Rosario Dawson has joined "Marvel’s Daredevil," an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.
 
Known for her powerful work in “Cesar Chavez,” “Kids” and the upcoming “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” Rosario Dawson will 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 joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock) and Vincent D’Onofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel’s Daredevil."
 
“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.”
 
"Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", in addition to writing the first two episodes of "Marvel's Daredevil"), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).
 
"Marvel’s Daredevil" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix

Mrcool210 - 6/20/2014, 11:40 AM
i almost thought she was going to be playing elektra, that would be strange. But it appears thats not the cast. She is a good actress though, good job.

I actually kinda expect her to play....damn what's her name? The blind woman DD saves and then later gets romantically involved with? She's in my favorite Daredevil stories.
JordanKing - 6/20/2014, 11:43 AM

Jollem - 6/20/2014, 11:43 AM

TheAbaryMan369 - 6/20/2014, 11:44 AM
I will admit however, that this has been one helluva last ten minutes.

RextheKing - 6/20/2014, 11:47 AM
As long as she's not Elektra I'm fine.
Dustellar - 6/20/2014, 11:48 AM
Maya Lopez aka Echo?

Phronesis - 6/20/2014, 11:48 AM
Brilliant cast.
charlie2094 - 6/20/2014, 11:49 AM
Cool! So maybe Karen Page? Quite an important character I'd say
Phronesis - 6/20/2014, 11:49 AM
So far I must add...
themidnightking - 6/20/2014, 11:49 AM

charlie2094 - 6/20/2014, 11:55 AM
Maya would be cool!

Surely be playing either Maya Lopez or Karen Page, only two that spring to mind, at least for this early on

Better not be Elektra.
TheDirtyMexican - 6/20/2014, 11:56 AM
If Ronin is in this....I want Hawkeye Ronin...and Mockingbird... And more Hawkeye.
MrBlackjack - 6/20/2014, 11:57 AM
Trance. That is all.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/20/2014, 11:57 AM
NOICE! Man, this show is shaping up better than I hoped!
Mastyrwerk - 6/20/2014, 11:57 AM
Echo or Elektra?

Either way, great casting! She is stellar in everything she does.
JorL5150 - 6/20/2014, 11:58 AM

darthbatman93 - 6/20/2014, 11:58 AM

SuperPickle - 6/20/2014, 11:58 AM
Oh hell yes. I'm LOVING what I'm seeing about this show. D'onofrio AND Rosario Dawson? Sign me up.

Dear god that woman is so [frick]ing cool and gorgeous. Can I have her babies?
yossarian - 6/20/2014, 12:00 PM
I haven't been this excited for TV since I heard they were going to reboot Good Times.
RextheKing - 6/20/2014, 12:02 PM
@Mastyrwerk If she's Elektra I will stab the casting director in the neck... Love Rosario but not as Elektra(I'd be willing to give it a shot though).
