Fan favorite Marvel actress Rosario Dawson has signed with Marvel to appear in the second season of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Daredevil. The deal for her character Claire Temple looks like it includes appearances in all of the upcoming Netflix Marvel shows including AKA Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
Alongside Daredevil season 2, both AKA Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will pop up exclusively on Netflix in 2016 while Iron Fist has been bumped back until likely 2017.
“After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second. Claire Temple proved a fan favorite in Season 1, and we can’t wait for fans to see all the plans we have for her next.” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb.
Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight announced that he was stepping down from his position to focus on another exciting project that he had been planning before taking the job, but it looks like the show is in good hands with writers Doug Petrie (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”) stepping up to the plate as co-showrunners for season 2.
