Rosario Dawson Will Reprise Her Daredevil Role In Jessica Jones & Luke Cage

Plus, Theo Rossi joins the Cage cast.


Rosario Dawson’s stand-out performance as Claire Temple on Daredevil will continue in the Jessica Jones and Luke Cage TV adaptations, which makes sense, given that the Claire Temple of the comics is also buddy-buddy with those characters. Why re-cast that character when Dawson’s already nailing it? Anyway, sounds like all three of these properties will take place in more or less the same canonical world.

Also, Sons of Anarchy actor Theo Rossi has been cast as “Sonny” on Luke Cage, and it’s rumored that his character will turn out to be Shades, a well-known villain from the Cage comics universe.

Which characters from the various intersecting Marvel worlds would you like to see making an appearance on Jessica Jones and Luke Cage?
