NYCC: Rosario Dawson’s “Daredevil” Role Revealed

Ending months of speculation, Marvel revealed this afternoon at New York Comic Con that Rosario Dawson won’t be playing White Tiger, Echo or Typhoid Mary in the Netflix drama “Daredevil,” but rather Claire Temple, a “nurse who works at night.” The actress was unable to attend the convention panel.

In Marvel Comics lore, Claire is a nurse — and later a doctor — and the ex-wife of Bill Foster, aka Goliath. She’s also a one-time love interest of Luke Cage, which may suggest a link to the Hero for Hire’s own Netflix series.

When Dawson joined the cast of “Daredevil” in June, Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb would only tease that, “Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”
