Apparently we're going to see a lot more of Claire Temple in Marvel's Netflix universe of shows.
The medical worker played by Rosario Dawson during the first season of Daredevil -- a hybrid of the comics' version of Claire and the character known as Night Nurse -- will return for a second season of the hit Netflix/Marvel series. But according to The Wrap, the actress has also struck a deal with the two companies that will allow her to appear on other upcoming Marvel shows as well.
Here's what Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, had to say:
“After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second. 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.”
Claire was a pivotal character in the first run of Matt Murdock's (Charlie Cox) adventures as an urban vigilante, patching him up after several brutal beatings and providing the possibility of a romantic relationship as well.
Interestingly, there were three characters in the comics who used the monicker Night Nurse, and none of them were Claire Temple -- in the comics she was a romantic interest for Luke Cage. With Mike Colter playing Cage in one of the next Marvel series to arrive on Netflix, it seems likely that we might end up seeing Dawson there.
Daredevil's second season will premiere in 2016, preceded by AKA Jessica Jones later this year and then followed by Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders later on. Are you pleased that Dawson is coming back, and where would you like to see her pop up next?
