I don't know why I'm just now finding about this, but I am. A coworker and fellow nerd informed me that Netflix is redoing Daredevil completely, and while doing my usual research, I found our girl here will be portraying Claire Temple.
So what do we know about Claire Temple?
During the Daredevil panel at the New York Comic Con, Jeph Loeb announced that Rosario Dawson - who was not present due to commitments elsewhere - will play Claire Temple, "a Nurse who works at Night". The character should be well-known to Daredevil and Doctor Strange fans, while the clinic where she helped to treat the wounds of injured superheroes was seen in a number of books, including New Avengers. A brief scene from the Netflix series was also shown following this announcement, and it apparently featured Claire taking care of the injured Matt Murdock after pulling him off the street (presumably after an early crime fighting attempt goes wrong).She's also portrayed with a fro in the comics.
Claire Temple 0001Claire Temple may not be THE Night Nurse from the comic books mentioned above, but she will seemingly be the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of that character based on Loeb's comments. Regardless, Temple was also a nurse, and it was through that job she became romantically involved with Luke Cage. She's also the ex-wife of Bill Foster, a.k.a. Black Goliath. What do you think?
Since Netflix will be unveiling its rendition of Daredevil this very Friday, April 10th, I guess I'll have my weekend cut out for me.
