Marvel have announced that Rosario Dawson will be returning for Season 2 of Daredevil. Not only that, this exclusive deal will allow her to appear in Marvel’s other forthcoming Netflix series: A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.

This is an exciting development, as Daredevil’s Claire Temple is an amalgamation of that character, originally a love interest for Luke Cage, and Linda Carter, the Night Nurse, who provides pro bono medical care for injured Superheroes. In the comic book world Night Nurse is known to all the Heroes currently undergoing the Netflix treatment, and, once they take their place on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, Matt Murdock is unlikely to be the only one needing stitches. In fact, MTV have speculated that Dawson’s crossover role means that she will act as the catalyst for them to team up as The Defenders, much as Nick Fury was for the Avengers team. Yet another reason to look forward to all the upcoming Marvel goodness!
