Rosario Dawson Daredevil

Netflix’s Daredevil has found its leading lady in Rosario Dawson — just don’t expect to find out her character’s name anytime soon.

The Sin City star has joined the 13-episode series in a top-secret role, Marvel announced Friday, leaving fans to speculate how her unnamed character might fit into the Daredevil universe.

In fact, our only clue to Dawson’s character is in these words from 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.”

Dawson joins Charlie Cox, playing the show’s titular hero, and Vincent D’Onofrio, who’s been tapped to play the villainous Wilson Fisk.

    OK! Let’s all say it at once: ELEKTRA!

    • Tom Charles says:

      Was my one and only thought.

      I like it.

    • Dan says:

      Elektra is a Greek ninja, daughter of some diplomat. If she’s indeed her, there they go again changing something that doesn’t need to be changed and making no sense in the process. Hope she’s someone else, but no idea who it would be.

      • Brooke says:

        Jesus Christ on a cracker, can’t a person of color get cast in anything without some unimaginative bore making a thinly veiled racist jab at it? It’s a property based on a comic book about super heroes. They can do anything they frickin’ want and make it make sense. It’s all make-believe.

        • Didi says:

          Completely agree. And seriously if we’re going to rely on something as superficial as skin tone, she’s likely a lot closer to someone who is Greek than Jennifer Garner.

          • Dr. M says:

            Nobody said Garner was right for the role either. Can’t someone who is Greek get cast in anything?

  2. M3rc Nate says:

    Awesome. I’m very excited about the Daredevil show, love the character and world. Would be badass if shes Elektra, i am a big fan of Dawson.

  3. I think that I read somewhere that FOX still owns the Elektra property despite having lost Daredevil.

  4. WW says:

    Its like either Karen Page – Matt Murdock’s secretary and future love – or Milla Donovan the woman Matt Murdock marries

  5. Steve F. says:

    Here’s another name I’ll add to the list: Typhoid Mary. In comics lore, she was injured by Matt early in his career, and it led to her split personalities to surface.

  6. Erik says:

    It could also be the character echo. Who the creator partially used Rosario as a basis for.

  7. DougMac says:

    White Tiger (the Angela Del Toro version) would be the closest fit to the description and to Dawson

  8. sladewilson says:

    Elektra and Karen are too obvious. I was thinking Echo or White Tiger. I would love for her to be Echo – OMG….

  9. Dj says:

    Dawson will play a “dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) unexpectedly crashing into her life” kind of sounds like Night Nurse with whole healing line.

    Please not Elektra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
