Rosario Dawson was a welcome addition to Daredevil in the first season where she took on the amalgamated role of the Night Nurse via Claire Temple, bringing together a few different comic characters into one. The actress is heading back for the second season, and is likely to show up in other Netflix based series that takes place in the Hell’s Kitchen region, and she’s got some fun things to talk about the experience overall in regards to the second season.
“I’m looking forward to seeing where [Claire’s arc] goes, because her eyes have been opened up to this other world — and she’s crossed the line,” Dawson said. “You know, this is someone who helps people, and she’s been violent now but seeing the need for it. I think there’s a lot that she’s having to grapple with, and I think that’s what’s exciting about using this show to explore street-level characters: it makes it that much more closer to us.”
“It just feels like, A) I finally get to join Marvel. I get to do it in a way that’s completely altering the universe, which is awesome. And then, B) I have no idea where it’s going to go, because here I was having a fling with Matt Murdock, and now Luke Cage is coming up, and Jessica Jones,” she added.
With Jon Bernthal cast recently as the Punisher, who will be appearing in the second season, she’s certainly curious to see how that turns out. “That’s going to raise the stakes so much more, because Matt Murdock almost behaves like the Punisher in the first season… [Matt] crosses the line quite often, so it’s going to be really interesting to see how they differentiate them and where that goes.”
While it seems unlikely that she’ll make the leap to the cinematic side, she’s definitely got the right idea about her place in the Netflix side. “I have no idea how they’re wanting me to come back or in which way, shape or form, but it’s nice to know that I’ve got a character who does kind of string everyone together and bring all those worlds together.”
With plans for a 2016 bow for the second season, Daredevil stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson and Rosario Dawson.
Plot concept: Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
