Rosario Dawson talks Daredevil season 2

Rosario Dawson has been discussing what we can expect from the second season of Daredevil, teasing the arrival of the Punisher and hinting at where her character may fit in second time around…

"That’s going to raise the stakes so much more," says Dawson about the Punisher's introduction, "because Matt Murdock almost behaves like the Punisher in the first season. He crosses the line quite often, so it’s going to be really interesting to see how they differentiate them and where that goes."

"I’m looking forward to seeing where [the next series] goes, because her eyes have been opened up to this other world — and she’s crossed the line. You know, this is someone who helps people, and she’s been violent now but seeing the need for it. I think there’s a lot that she’s having to grapple with, and I think that’s what’s exciting about using this show to explore street-level characters: it makes it that much more closer to us."

Dawson has also hinted at a future for her character beyond the next season of Daredevil, suggesting she might crop up in some of the other Marvel TV shows. "Even just having Night Nurse and Claire Temple come together was already changing the Marvel Universe,” she says. “So it just feels like, A) I finally get to join Marvel. I get to do it in a way that’s completely altering the universe, which is awesome. And then, B) I have no idea where it’s going to go, because here I was having a fling with Matt Murdock, and now Luke Cage is coming up, and Jessica Jones." Looks like we'll be seeing plenty more of Dawson as the TV universe develops…
