By DCMarvelFreshman - 8/1/2014
Best known for her resonant work in "True Blood," Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page, an enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into the life of Matt Murdock, irrevocably changing his war for a better tomorrow against the forces of evil in Hell's Kitchen. Woll joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel's Daredevil."
 
"Deborah Ann Woll is fiery, self-assured and inspires those around her--all words that perfectly describe Karen Page," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "It's through Deborah Ann's nuanced portrayal that we see just why Karen is not only important to Matt Murdock, but is a central figure in the war for the soul of Hell's Kitchen." "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

yossarian - 8/1/2014, 12:14 PM
Who cares if this is old news. She is hot and DD rules.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/1/2014, 12:14 PM
i thought this was posted already but oh well..cant wait for this show..its been desribed as having a "70s, Gritty New York feel" its like DD will center on the street level crime stuff and Iron Fist, for example,may center on the more martial arts and mystic side
DarthCMPunk - 8/1/2014, 12:15 PM
This is older then the Comic Con news lol
SnapperCarr - 8/1/2014, 12:17 PM
I wonder how the Luke Cage and Iron Fist shows are going to work. Is Cage going to be in Harlem or Hell's Kitchen? Is Iron Fist going to showcase K'un-L'un or just show him after he went through training?
MarvelWeiner - 8/1/2014, 12:18 PM
I'd give her the job anyday! If you know what I mean... ;p
MrCBM56 - 8/1/2014, 12:22 PM
In other news we have our first black president.
Desrow - 8/1/2014, 12:22 PM
She's pretty good looking.
TheAmbassador - 8/1/2014, 12:25 PM
Cool, she's hot. Who cares if this is a repost? Just means we get to repost gifs of this sexy redhead

The post you all saw before wasn't confirmed, the Hollywood reporter, reported it. But now Marvel has Officially announced it.
LeroyJenkins - 8/1/2014, 12:27 PM
Oh my god this already got posted!!!!!!???? Shame on you
Pasto - 8/1/2014, 12:28 PM
MrCBMs comment caught me so of guard I spit everywhere when I laughed.
yonny616 - 8/1/2014, 12:31 PM
It was never confirmed casting! Now it is.
SpiderFraud - 8/1/2014, 12:32 PM
Still waiting for that DD suit.

Nomis - 8/1/2014, 12:32 PM
If there was ever an Anti-Drugs statement in the comic it's Karen page...





MrCBM56 - 8/1/2014, 12:33 PM
Haha pasto
SpiderFraud - 8/1/2014, 12:34 PM
Dat tragic comic book character backstory is the real deal.
Ranger14 - 8/1/2014, 12:35 PM
What part of "Marvel's Jeph Loeb Confirms" don't people get. This was never confirmed before. Just reported on that a "source confirmed", which isn't always reliable.
DrKinsolving - 8/1/2014, 12:36 PM
Anything goes for this show too right, since it's on Netflix
TexasTwoFace - 8/1/2014, 12:37 PM
Oh good so Karen Page will actually be an important character in this Daredevil.
fettastic - 8/1/2014, 12:37 PM
Probably would have preferred she be Mary Jane, but cool.
JorL5150 - 8/1/2014, 12:38 PM
shes HAWT.

cant wait for the show. hope the costume is better than "the flash"
yossarian - 8/1/2014, 12:38 PM
Gusto is about to get puked on.
Gusto - 8/1/2014, 12:38 PM

And, still no pics of the costume.
This pleases me.

TonyChu - 8/1/2014, 12:38 PM
Are they going to explore her drug addiction?
Gusto - 8/1/2014, 12:39 PM
I've been puked on by better men than you!
yossarian - 8/1/2014, 12:42 PM
That's the point!

Anyone can get puked on by a good man. Getting puked on by someone like me is just insulting.
Nomis - 8/1/2014, 12:42 PM
I really liked the movie version of D.D. uniform.

Amazing512 - 8/1/2014, 12:45 PM
They should reveal the first poster at the New York comic con since it's closely tied to Daredevil. Maybe even a costume reveal if were lucky.
slimybug - 8/1/2014, 12:47 PM
This is not front page news.
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/1/2014, 12:49 PM
Not front page news. Kinda already knew she was Karen Page
mdwilliamson24 - 8/1/2014, 12:50 PM
I wanted Deborah Ann Woll in the Marvel Universe, but I kind of was hoping for Amora in Thor 3.
Oh well, she'll be great in DD, so its all good.
dio - 8/1/2014, 12:51 PM
Glad to have more DAW. Can't wait for the Netflix series. Have a feeling the tv shows,netflix shows and movies will all coincide with Avengers 3.
Sipprelle - 8/1/2014, 12:52 PM
Old news.

No one's pointed it out, but it's curious that her character description is almost exactly the same as Rosario Dawson's.

"Best known for her resonant work in "True Blood," Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page, an enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into the life of Matt Murdock, irrevocably changing his war for a better tomorrow against the forces of evil in Hell's Kitchen."

http://marvel.com/news/tv/2014/6/20/22725/rosario_dawson_joins_marvels_daredevil_for_netflix

"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."

Alright, I don't want to ask this on a GOTG thread but the people that have seen the movie, how many after credit scenes are there? Don't tell me what happens, just how many. Thank You!
