Acclaimed actress joins "Marvel's Daredevil" for Netflix
Best known for her resonant work in "True Blood," Deborah Ann Woll will play Karen Page, an enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into the life of Matt Murdock, irrevocably changing his war for a better tomorrow against the forces of evil in Hell's Kitchen.

Woll joins Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), with Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) in the critically-lauded cast of "Marvel's Daredevil."

"Deborah Ann Woll is fiery, self-assured and inspires those around her--all words that perfectly describe Karen Page," said Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television. "It's through Deborah Ann's nuanced portrayal that we see just why Karen is not only important to Matt Murdock, but is a central figure in the war for the soul of Hell's Kitchen."

"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

I believe that Rosario Dawson will play Kirsten McDuffie who was Murdock's ex girlfriend and a former Assistant District Attorney of New York City currently working at Nelson and Murdock law firm. So, Elektra will not be seen in the series after first season.

I thought Karen Page was confirmed weeks ago, though i'm not sure which actor.

In the Rosario Dawson casting announcement, Daredevil is said to "come crashing into her life" while this announcement has Karen Page "crashing into Matt Murdock's" life.  I think you might want to hit the thesaurus for some other words to describe how relationships begin. 

On a different note.  I am genuinely looking forward to this series and the 3 to follow.

@CreacK Rosario Dawson was confirmed for a role for an "important female in Matt Murdoch's life."  With Karen Page now being cast, Rosario Dawson is basically guaranteed to be playing elektra, although I think they're trying to save that reveal.

@djxiii To be fair, when you're blind there can be a lot of crashing into things... :B
