The Hollywood Reporter has leaked information online that Rosario Dawson, best known for her roles as Persephone in Percy Jackson, Gail in Sin City, and Zoe Perez in Eagle Eye, will be playing a pivotal character in the Marvel Studios and Netflix exclusive production of Marvel's Daredevil series.
She will play a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell's Kitchen brings blind attorney Matt Murdock (Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox) unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.
Dawson's casting comes more than a week after Vincent D'Onofrio joined the 13-episode series as "The Kingpin." In late May, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Spartacus' Steven S. DeKnight would be taking over the reins as showrunner from Drew Goddard, who will be segueing to Sinister Six.
Is this a traditional character from the comics, or a completely original one? Could Rosario have just been casted as Elektra? Moviepilot will keep you updated as news surfaces!
Daredevil is one of five Marvel Studios series productions, which also include The Defenders, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones.
