Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actress Rosario Dawson has joined "Marvel’s Daredevil," an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015.

Known for her powerful work in “Cesar Chavez,” “Kids” and the upcoming “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” Rosario Dawson will play a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.

Dawson joins Charlie Cox (previously announced as Matt Murdock) and Vincent D’Onofrio (previously announced as Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel’s Daredevil."

“Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for 'Marvel’s Daredevil,'” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil.”

"Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", in addition to writing the first two episodes of "Marvel's Daredevil"), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

"Marvel’s Daredevil" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

Is this going to be part of the regular neflix subscription or are they going to charge extra for this? I know Daredevil won't have special effects on the level of Avengers but you can't make it cheap either.

I admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of Daredevil as a comic, and the movie didn't help. But after seeing some of the awesome back-to-back casting picks for for the show I'm convinced that I'll actually enjoy Daredevil in this medium. I don't know how DC is doing it but after seeing previews of the slew of shows they're producing (Gotham, Flash, Constantine, iZombie) I'm confident that Marvel's deliberate pace in weaving together the MCU will be satisfying and more impressive.

“Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood".

Overstatement of the month.

@wsouth I imagine it will be part of the regular subscription, just like Netflix's other original series (like Orange is the New Black).

@nikkiforte I can see a little bit of Elektra but I'm sure whoever she'll be playing will be fine for her.
