Deadline reports Daredevil’s Rosario Dawson will reprise her role in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix series, Luke Cage. Dawson portrayed Claire Temple in Netflix’s hit show Daredevil; a suspiciously minor role for the actor. Within the Marvel canon, Temple was a love interest of both Luke Cage and Bill Foster, also know as Goliath.
As Luke Cage will inhabit the same habitat as Daredevil, New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, it had been speculated that Temple would cross over to the series. Confirmation came today, along with news that Sons of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi would join the show, though his role is yet unconfirmed. Dawson joins Mike Colter and Alfre Woodard in the upcoming Netflix series. Luke Cage is set for release in 2016.
