Marvel officially announced today that Rosario Dawson has joined the cast of their upcoming Daredevil television series debuting on Netflix in 2015. Dawson is most notably known to comic fans for her role in Sin City and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. She joins the already cast Charlie Cox playing Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin. There is no word on which role she will play in Daredevil yet. We are keeping our fingers crossed for Typhoid Mary, so we can finally forget Mary being in the horrible Elektra film.
Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, had this to say about the casting:
“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.”
We will keep you updated on the series as more news comes in.
