Rosario Dawson's DAREDEVIL Character Revealed?

When it was announced that Sin City's Rosario Dawson had joined the Netflix Daredevil series in a secret role, many of us assumed she'd be playing Elektra, but according to io9 that doesn't seem to be the case. Find out her character's callsheet name after the jump..

Elektra is an integral part of some of the best Daredevil stories, so when Rosario Dawson's role in Marvel's Netflix series was kept under wraps, many assumed she must be playing the sai wielding assassin. Well, that may still be the case, but it's not her character's name on the callsheet according to io9.

"A source who's seen some callsheets for the Netflix series says Rosario Dawson is playing a character named "Claire T." Sound like anyone we know?"

Claire T = Clarity? Or could it be Claire Temple, a love interest for Luke Cage? It'd certainly be one way to tie Daredevil into another one of Marvel's upcoming Netflix shows. Of course her name could well be something else entirely and this is just a cover, so there is still a chance Dawson is playing Elektra -- but if she's not, any other ideas? We recently got some set snaps of Charlie Cox as the titular man without fear, so perhaps we'll see Miss Dawson soon too and get a better idea.

So much for Elektra.
kevberg - 8/7/2014, 7:21 AM
She might make a good Typhoid Mary though.
batz11 - 8/7/2014, 7:22 AM
Every time, I see that name, think Breakfast Club...

SKOne - 8/7/2014, 7:25 AM
Claire T. is probably just a cover for whatever character she is actually playing like Daniel for Ray Palmer.
DarkeyeZ - 8/7/2014, 7:26 AM
I'm new to posting on this sight, so, I have to ask...what the hell does it mean when an article says "after the jump"? I always see them say "find out more after the jump" or something like that...what the hell is the jump? I swear, most times the info that they say is "after the jump" is on te next line or 2...
please, someone explain. or is it one of those things that people have seen in articles before and add them to their articles without even knowing what it means just to try and keep up?

@Darkeye - It means after clicking the link. Welcome to the site.
RextheKing - 8/7/2014, 7:28 AM
After the jump = click on my damn article and read the rest.
Demiurge - 8/7/2014, 7:29 AM
Claire T., Claire T... Claire Temple ?
Wait, I think Claire Temple is more of a 'Luke Cage' protagonist.

WHO IS THIS CLAIRE T. ???

yossarian - 8/7/2014, 7:29 AM
Cold coffee sucks dicks.
RextheKing - 8/7/2014, 7:29 AM
I'll say it again, I love me some Rosario, but I'm not a fan of her playing Elektra.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/7/2014, 7:30 AM
its weird to me why they didnt release the name of her character..if she is a comic book character..idk why would u keep it a surprise..they released the characters for the other actors aswell and if she is a character specificially created for the show..why would u still not release it cause she wont be a character people know then
yossarian - 8/7/2014, 7:30 AM
@Demiurge - Foggy has a sister named Candace which means clarity. Claire Temple could be used to help tie the DD show to the other shows. I don't know. Whatever.
DarkeyeZ - 8/7/2014, 7:31 AM
@yossarian
thanks man. I kind of assumed that, but found that most times there is no link and I simply have to scrool down for the info. maybe it's just the way it loads on my screen. thanks again for the info, and my internet slang is a bit rusty.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/7/2014, 7:33 AM
what if she is..Jessica Jones and she will show up in this before getting her own show
MercwithMouth - 8/7/2014, 7:33 AM
I still think she's Elektra...

And Rosario is [frick]ing gorgeous.

EzioKenway1225 - 8/7/2014, 7:34 AM
also..CAN I PLEASE SEE WHAT THE DAREDEVIL SUIT LOOKS LIKE!!
MercwithMouth - 8/7/2014, 7:35 AM
@DarkeyeZ

Welcome to the madhouse!

SKOne - 8/7/2014, 7:35 AM
It's only 9 months until Daredevil shows up on Netflix and I would be really surprised if we don't get a trailer sometime during the first half of the Agents of Shield season. Also, does anyone realize that Claire T. is almost a perfect anagram for Elektra.
kevberg - 8/7/2014, 7:36 AM
yeah shes gorgeous with those perpetual bags under her eyes and that huge horse mouth.


its not as bad as Sarah jessica parker...but its bad.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/7/2014, 7:36 AM
also i dont think we are getting Bullseye or anyone else..i think the main villain is Kingpin and it makes sense since the tone of the show has been described as having a "Gritty, 70s New York feel"
PeterDarker121 - 8/7/2014, 7:38 AM

@Demiurge You're right. She's more than likely playing Claire Temple, a NYC nurse who first helped Luke Cage when he first became "Power Man" and dated him for a while. She's also the ex-wife of Bill Foster (Black Goliath).
HAILHYDRA - 8/7/2014, 7:43 AM
She's probably a crossover character for sure
Pasto - 8/7/2014, 7:43 AM
Uh-oh, someone mentioned SJP....
EzioKenway1225 - 8/7/2014, 7:44 AM
wait if this Claire T. is the connective tissue between the 4 netflix shows
Gusto - 8/7/2014, 7:45 AM
Kev...you're clearly nuts!

SecNotSure - 8/7/2014, 7:49 AM
@kevberg

Having a "horse mouth" can be a perk...
TheAbomination - 8/7/2014, 7:49 AM
Sounds generic.
RorMachine - 8/7/2014, 7:50 AM
Gorgeous woman. I hope she's playing Elektra..mainly just because I hope Elektra is a part of the show, seems like a missed opportunity if not.
ImTheCaptainOfThisShip - 8/7/2014, 7:51 AM
Hm. All I can say is bring on the show!!
nibs - 8/7/2014, 7:51 AM
So, how exactly does this reveal her character?
kevberg - 8/7/2014, 7:51 AM
lol...@gusto..leave my nuts outta this.


Shes just not hot man.. You have to slap some serious make-up on her and she has those puffy eyes.

Shes likable on-screen---I aint denying that.., but she just is paper bag hot.



RebelVulcan - 8/7/2014, 7:52 AM
SKOne- No it's not.
ImTheCaptainOfThisShip - 8/7/2014, 7:52 AM
Do you think she would be introduced in the show right away if indeed (elektra) is on it @rormachine
MrMartinMarvel - 8/7/2014, 7:52 AM
I'd prefer if they got a Greek actress to play Elektra, much like Cherry I hope that Dawson plays Typhoid Mary.
Gusto - 8/7/2014, 7:53 AM
EXCLUSIVE!
A sneak peak at the costume!

LMB10 - 8/7/2014, 7:54 AM
No way she's Elektra

Misty Knights my guess
yossarian - 8/7/2014, 7:55 AM
Yeah. I am going to go ahead and say she is super hot.
0megaDaGod - 8/7/2014, 7:55 AM
I think she'd be great as Elektra, but it would be nice if they could find a fine ass Greek actress who could own the role as well
yossarian - 8/7/2014, 7:56 AM


He has no fear and makes GL relevant.
