Rosario Dawson on #Daredevil


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).

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?
She's also portrayed with a fro in the comics.


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.

  1. Your girl Gina Torres is on Revenge. I only caught a couple of episodes with her and taped the rest. Work has been getting in the way so hopefully in the coming weeks I can see what is up. So far she is playing a character who was a former nurse that married one of the main characters dying father...and got all the money!

    1. Is it a guest role or is she part of the main cast?

    2. Except for Madeline Stowe (Victoria) and Emily VanCamp (Amanda/Emily) all the other roles are recurring.

  2. Watching Daredevil right now and I'm in awe of Rosario Dawson. That is one hell of an actress, y'all. I'm sorry, but females don't reach their true beauty potential until they hit their thirties and forties. Maturity and gravitas are just so very, very sexy.

    1. And she's the Daredevil's love interest. Already kissing by episode 5.

      Cue racist backlash in three...two....

  3. I just finshed marathoning it yesterday and Rosario gives me too much life!Considering she is only ever in jeans and a variety of layered tops she is the most beautiful woman on the show, though they show off the waisted figure of the lawyers secretary as much as possible - no contest.

    I'm glad her common sense keeps them from being a pair but at the same time this plays into the white fangirl's hands by making the white girl the centre of any menage happeneing, so......

    I enjoyed it but was super put off by all the POC fridging that happened to further all the white people's stories. So so tired of this!!!!

    The guy playing daredevil wasn't memorable at all despite putting in a solid performance. I am really bored of white main casts with POC embroidering the edges, i want to know the stories and focus on the black and brown folk.

      I came into this expecting her to not be the love interest. She's not a major a figure in the comics from what I can tell, but the writers chose to push her forward which I found intriguing.

      I really like how they handled her characterization; I felt able to identify with her calm, cool-headedness and preference for subtlety and discretion. I like that she's more of the Daredevil's colleague than his groupie; it is she who stitches the warrior up and keeps him alive to fight the good fight another day - that's deep. So deep that it may very well set them up to become an endgame couple. 'Cause clearly, Netflix plays by their own rules, and the show's creator is a Buffy alumnus, so I have trust. Doug Petrie, another Buffy alumnus, helped write some eps and he's always good with strong female characters.

      I'm certain this is getting renewed, so I can't wait to see what they do with Claire Temple next.

    2. Awwwww...you didn't like Charlie Cox? He grew on me, especially whenever his British accent kept slipping.

    3. Nah. He's a Brit?? I thought something was off with his accent, makes sense!

      I'm indifferent to the character, like i admire why he does what he does and his skills, but i couldn't care less about his arc tbh. At least i didn't find him loathsome, great job, and rare for me these days!

      I'm sure it will be too, yeah they amped up her role by conflating it with another nurse character.

      She was awesome and understated and I liked that their dynamic was more of a colleague thing too, she knows who's side he's on uses her skills to help him fight another day. Much more realistic after getting caught up in the sweep of violence too. She was a highlight! More Claire Temple!
