Marvel announced on their website today that Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) has signed on to join "Marvel's Daredevil," the 13-episode series which will premiere on Netflix in 2015 as part of a new Marvel initiative to put their character's on the small screen.

Dawson will be playing a young woman trying to make things better in Hell's Kitchen which brings her and Matt Murdock into her life.

Dawson will be along side Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock) and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk). Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television had this to say:

“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... Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”

More news on this series as it develops.

She looks like she could be Elektra. Seems like a bit of a waste to make her anything else...

Good actress, will just need to wait and see if it all works out. But I'm quite hopeful of the show from what I've heard.

1.) see her fully nude in trance (2013) & Alexander (2003)

2.) logic dictates she be echo, im sure she would be great at it, and id love to see ronin on film, but.... i genuinely believe the universe will be a better place if we get to see her sexy tan ass wrapped tightly in crimson silk!

3.) but if that is not to be then Morena Baccarin for elektra!

4.) typhoid mary?

She's nothing but eye candy, an average actress at best.

@inferiorego: One of mine too. In Wizard Magazine she mentioned how her uncle was a comic artist and she and her brother still read superhero comics like Flash, Green Lantern, and such.

Don't know who she's playing but good casting nonetheless

She's decent looking at best.

Kirsten McDuffie is the best and most obvious option They'll wanna keep this relatively grounded and not overload it with blatant costumers.

She only needs to be an average actress to be McDuffie. She's been in multiple movies where she is paired with a male interest/companion, and she's good at it.

I was thinking she could be McDuffie too but I hope not. I'd rather her be Elektra.

Of course it's subjective. Nobody is inarguably hot.

You want them to handle Elektra for the first time since Garner in a 12-episode mini-series dedicated to Daredevil? Not at all. This needs to be a superhero story grounded in crime. Sow the seeds, sure. Maybe reference her in the final episode and bring her in for The Defenders. End the final episode on her being sent to kill Foggy and having him recognise her.

Since when is she a Daredevil-related character?

#37 Posted by daredevil21134 (11898 posts) - - Show Bio

I wonder why they wanna keep her casting a secret. I would think if she was Elektra they would want people to know. I hate to say but I think it's Mcduffie too

Not a huge fan of her acting...but phew, she's good looking. Can't wait to see who she plays. And I always love a woman who embraces nerdy/fun roles, Clerks, Sin City,Death Proof, now this!

#43 Edited by Stormdriven (5007 posts) - - Show Bio

She's hot, and a good actress. Can't wait to watch it.

#44 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Now I have reason to watch this :)

#45 Edited by RazzaTazz (9647 posts) - - Show Bio

My first thought was actually Karen Page, but maybe that character is already cast.

I immediately thought of Maya Lopez, followed by Elektra. Regardless, I'm super super excited for this.

#47 Posted by MideonNViscera (367 posts) - - Show Bio

Basically the only woman she can't be is Karen Page, who is so long dead (or at least feels that way) that she may never appear anyway.

Also, she's very hot.

#48 Posted by Spideysense44 (3467 posts) - - Show Bio

She looks JUST like White Tiger

@inferiorego: What other movies has she been in?

Sin City, Clerks 2, The Rundown, MIB 2, Death Proof. She's actually been in over 50 films.
