Actress, singer, musician and activist Rosario Dawson of Puerto Rican and Afro Cuban decent and star of such movies like Sin City, Unstoppable, Kids and most recently her powerful role as Dolores Huerta in the Cesar Chavez film has joined the cast of the up incoming 13 episode Netflix original show, Daredevil.
“Marvel’s 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 superhero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Although her character’s name has not yet been reveled, what we do know is that Rosario 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, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.” So excitingly vague then!
This is the first original Marvel series exclusively produced for Netflix. The executive produced is the 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 the first two episodes are are written with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Smallville, Heroes).
