Rosario Dawson joins Netflix’s Daredevil
Earlier today Marvel & Netflix announced that popular actor Rosario Dawson has joined Marvel’s Daredevil, the all-new thirteen-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.
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 Hells 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.
Dawson joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock) and Vincent DOnofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of Marvels Daredevil.
Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for Marvels Daredevil, said Jeph Loeb, Marvels Head of Television. Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdocks journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.
Marvels 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.
Marvels 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 Daredevil), along with Marvel TVs Jeph Loeb (Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Smallville, Heroes).
Marvels Daredevil is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
