New "Daredevil," "Jessica," "Luke" Details More details about Marvel's various Netflix shows have come out in the days following the streaming service's Television Critics Association presentation earlier this week. Here's a breakdown:
First season show runner Steven De Knight says that despite the inclusion of The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) in the second season, don't expect it to ramp up the violence to be more akin to the last film about the character (2008's "Punisher: War Zone"). De Knight says:
"The first season of 'Daredevil' was violent, but I always say it was more implied. It wasn't nearly as violent as 'The Walking Dead,' a show that I love. On that, if somebody were to crush somebody's head in a car door, you would've seen the head crush on screen, but we didn't want to go quite that far. We wanted to keep it right around »

At a swanky press event in America yesterday, Marvel let loose some secrets about their upcoming Netflix plans. We were at home eating biscuits at the time, but we’ve managed to find out what they said thanks to a detailed article by the fine folk at Collider.
Here’s a breakdown of what was said…
Marvel wants to debut a new show every six months, according to Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “And then, they will cross over and do a combined season [The Defenders] once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters. Some will selectively have multiple seasons, as they come out. The cadence of it, though, we believe, will probably be about two launches a year.”
And could The Punisher – set to appear »
Earlier this month, we reported that actress Rachel McAdams is being eyed for the female lead in Marvel's Doctor Strange. Naturally, there were no details given about what character she may be playing in that report, but some cryptic comments from earlier today could offer a hint at who she's playing: the Night Nurse. When asked if there have been any conflicts with the Marvel movie side, Marvel's Daredevil producer Steven S. DeKnight revealed that Rosario Dawson's character was changed from Linda Carter to Claire Temple, because the McU had "plans" for Carter.
"The feature side had plans for her down the road so that was the only time we ran into a conflict. So we just used another name."
This past weekend, Rachel McAdams confirmed that she has indeed had talks with Marvel Studios about a potential role in Scott Derrickson's upcoming Doctor Strange... but what has remained a mystery has been the exact part for which she has been rumored. One possibility that we threw out was Clea, the niece and close disciple of Dormammu and a romantic interest for Doctor Strange, but now there is some evidence that could suggest that she is instead playing Linda Carter - a character in Marvel Comics who also goes by the moniker Night Nurse. This theory has been spurred on by recent comments made by Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Stephen DeKnight. While on stage at a Television Critics Association presentation this afternoon, DeKnight was asked about why Rosario Dawson's character - who basically serves as Night Nurse on the Netflix series - is not named Linda Carter, but instead Claire Temple. »
When you cover superhero adaptations for a living, there will come a moment when you have to decide if you’re going to dive into weeds of obscure references, or just let go of a throwaway quote by a creator. Today, I choose the former. Put on your waders, we’re going in. During today’s TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour of upcoming Netflix shows, Steven S. DeKnight mentioned something about “Daredevil” in passing that Should have made everyone go “Wait, what?” When DeKnight was ramping up for the first season of the show, he received very little pushback from Marvel. Except on one front: Rosario Dawson’s character, Claire Temple. Originally DeKnight wanted Dawson to portray Linda Carter (no, not Wonder Woman) in the show. Carter is better known as the Night Nurse. Of course, “better known” is subjective as Carter is a pretty deep cut when it comes to superhero characters. »

In the comic books, three women have gone by the Night Nurse moniker; Georgia Jenkins, Christine Palmer, and Linda Carter. Claire Temple meanwhile was a love interest for Luke Cage, but when Rosario Dawson was cast, it was widely reported that she would be Night Nurse. When Daredevil premiered, that obviously wasn't the case, and talking at the Television Critics Association press tour today, Steven DeKnight revealed why exactly that is. "The feature side had plans for her down the road so that was the only time we ran into a conflict," he said when asked if he and Marvel got into any disagreements about the characters who could be used. "So we just used another name." Common sense says that Night Nurse will show up in Doctor Strange as she played a major role in one of the few modern stories to feature the character; Brian K. Vaughn's critically »
New York photographer Shelly Kay has released the first set photos from Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil, which just started production in New York City under the code name "Ringside." These photos offer our first look at Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Elden Henson as his law firm partner Foggy Nelson on the streets of Manhattan. Of course, we have no clue what exactly is happening in these scenes quite yet, but at least we know production is under way, with the second season set to premiere on Netflix sometime next year.
Rosario Dawson has been confirmed to return as Night Nurse in Daredevil Season 2, with Jon Bernthal signing on last month to play The Punisher. It isn't known if Season 1 stars such as Vincent D'Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Ayelet Zurer will be back for the second season or not. »
If you were wondering why the cast of Daredevil is skipping Comic-Con this year, it may have something to do with the fact that production has kicked off on the second season of the hit Netflix superhero show, with New York-based photographer Shelly Kay posting a selection of set photos on Twitter showing Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) shooting a scene in East Harlem. Check the images out here.
Season two of Daredevil is set to see the return of Rosario Dawson as Claire ‘Night Nurse’ Temple, while Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Fury) is also set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the role of Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher. As yet, there’s been no word on other returning cast members, although Deborah Ann Woll is expected to be back as Karen Page.

It’s been a pretty quiet week in the world of superherodom, although Marvel Studios has been quietly upping the promotional for Ant-Man ahead of its release next month, debuting a selection of new posters and TV spots [see here, here and here], along with a batch of images from the film featuring Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), T.I.

It’s fair to say that Marvel’s Daredevil series on Netflix was full of top notch performances, from its hero to its villains, and the supporting cast, too. Rosario Dawson’s Claire (inspired partly by the Night Nurse character from the comics) was a particular highlight. She’ll be back for season 2, and has been discussing the show recently.
“I’m looking forward to seeing where [Claire] goes,” she said of her character, “because her eyes have been opened up to this other world — and she’s crossed the line. You know, this is someone who helps people, and she’s been violent now, but seeing the need for it.”
“I think there’s a lot that she’s having to grapple with, and I think that’s what’s exciting about using »
Last month it was announced that Rosario Dawson will be reprising the role of Claire Temple for the second season of Daredevil (as well as potentially featuring in any of Netflix’s other Marvel series) and now the actress has been speaking to MTV about what the future holds for her character.
“She’s funny, she’s wry, she’s strong — she’s built for that world, because she’s great under pressure. She’s someone — hero or not — you’d want to have in a dire situation… I really just liked her arc all the way through. I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes, because her eyes have been opened up to this other world — and she’s crossed the line. You know, this is someone who helps people, and she’s been violent now but seeing the need for it. I think there’s a lot »

I've been late to board the Daredevil train, I'm just under halfway through at the moment, but one of the characters I've already grown quite attached to is Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple, aka Night Nurse. The actress was on hand at E3 this week due to her involvement in Call of Duty: Black Ops III where she spoke with MTV about the series and why she... Read More »

It was little more than a month ago when we learned that Rosario Dawson would be returning to Netflix's second season of Daredevil to reprise her role as Claire Temple, aka Night Nurse. Now, Dawson is apparently very excited to talk about returning to the character, following through on her story arc, and possible crossovers with Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. She also commented on the recent addition of Jon Bernthal as the Punisher. MTV caught up with Dawson while she was attending E3 2015 to talk up her work with "Call of Duty: Black Ops III." Here are her thoughts on why the fans connected with her Daredevil character so much: “She’s funny, she’s wry, she’s strong — she’s built for that world, because she’s great under pressure. She’s someone — hero or not — you’d want to have in a dire situation… I really just »

Claire Temple didn't play a huge role in season one of Daredevil, but she still proved to be very popular and definitely seemed to resonate with fans. When MTV caught up with Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Top Five) at E3 this week they asked her why she thinks that is, and what we can expect to see from Miss Temple in the future. “She’s funny, she’s wry, she’s strong — she’s built for that world, because she’s great under pressure," Dawson said of her character. "She’s someone — hero or not — you’d want to have in a dire situation… I really just liked her arc all the way through." Matt Murdock gave Claire a good look at the dark underside of Hell's Kitchen, but also showed her that it's possible to fight back. Is there a chance that Claire could evolve more towards the "Night Nurse »
Netflix’s Daredevil series had everything you could want from an adaptation of the comics. Matt Murdock, unlucky in fights, lucky in love! Foggy Nelson, charming nuisance! Night Nurse! The Hand! That Greek girl Matt dated but “it didn’t work out”! Almost every part of the Man Without Fear’s wide mythology was accounted for. Almost.
One of Daredevil’s most enduring enemies, Wilson Fisk, was there, but where was his enforcer? Bullseye, the assassin with the perfect deadly aim, has been as much responsible for making Matt Murdock’s life hell as the Kingpin is. In fact in the comics, Bullseye is responsible for killing off two of Daredevil’s major love interests.

Marvel has given us a glimpse at some concept artwork from Ryan Meinerding for Matt Murdock’s iconic red suit in the Netflix series Daredevil, which looks pretty close indeed to the costume that made it on screen in the season finale…
“The tone that was really communicated was the sense of realism that they were going for,” Meinerding tells Marvel.com. “I think the way that [manifested itself in] the costume was through the armor and making it feel a little bit more padded than you traditionally think of Daredevil being. When we do these designs, there’s a concept of grounded and a concept of reality. The grounded nature that they brought to the vigilante costume was the simplicity and effectiveness, because you’re trying to conceal your identity but also [have to be] mobile enough to fight. When you do a super hero costume in that world, it’s hard to be as »

A classic rags-to-riches story, Rosario Dawson began her career penniless, with no hopes of ever being an actor. Basically homeless, she was discovered on the streets and cast in her first film at the age of 15. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes, and that’s how she ended up playing Night Nurse in Daredevil.
Her accomplishments sound a little less impressive when you put it like that, but Dawson’s performance as Claire Temple in Netflix’s first Marvel series was one of the highlights of that show. It was just the latest in a long line of great, complex and diverse roles she’s played over the years, starring in everything from Oliver Stone’s ill-fated Alexander to Rent.
Over the course of her career Dawson has played a death-defying make-up artist in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, the »

Following hot on the heels of the news that Daredevil star Rosario Dawson has signed on to reprise the role of Claire Temple / Night Nurse in Netflix’s various Marvel series, a new synopsis has arrived online for the streaming service’s next offering, A.K.A. Jessica Jones:
“Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need… especially if they’re willing to cut her a check.”

Marvel and Netflix have announced that Rosario Dawson will return as Claire Temple / Night Nurse in next year’s second season of Daredevil, with the actress also signing a deal that will allow her to feature in any of Marvel’s other Netflix series (A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders).
“After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb. “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.”

Marvel kicked off its Netflix shows earlier this month with the release of the 13-part series Daredevil, but if Joss Whedon had his way, the Man Without Fear would never have appeared on the small screen, with the Avengers: Age of Ultron helmer telling IGN that he fought for a Daredevil movie from Marvel Studios.
“I fought for Daredevil to be a film instead of a TV show. Then under the auspices of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight… I’m dying to see the show but they released it just as I started the press tour! If the show’s working, the show’s working. Comic books are serialised entertainment and a lot of them lend themselves to TV shows as much or more than they do to movies. I like [Daredevil] because he’s basically Marvel’s Batman, thanks to Frank Miller basically. So for me I didn’t think »
