Rosario Dawson Will Star in Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’

Daredevil, the first of five Marvel properties heading directly to Netflix, is coming in 2015. England’s Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire, Stardust) was cast for the lead a month ago, and now Rosario Dawson has been added as “a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil) unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.” Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb says the role is “absolutely critical” and that Dawson “was always at the top of our list.” While Dawson doesn’t have any all-out superhero movies on her résumé, she’s been in the very comic-y Sin City and will soon appear in its sequel, A Dame to Kill For.
