Marvel has been loving Daredevil recently. The show has announced both the lead in Matt Murdock and a villain in the Kingpin. Today, however, Marvel announced yet another lead in the show. Rosario Dawson, formerly known for her work in Sin City, 7 Pounds, and Deathproof, she has been cast in Daredevil as an “unspecified roll”.
Despite the lack of specificity, take a look at her, pictured above. To me, I can see her very clearly as Elektra Natchios, formerly portrayed on scene by Jennifer Garner. Elektra was a sometimes villain, sometimes love interest of Matt Murdock.
Dawson’s roll has been described as “absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey”. It’s interesting that her exact roll is being kept under wraps for now. What do you think, internet? Comment away! Is it Elektra, or is that too soon to call? Only time will tell.
