Daredevil’s Rosario Dawson will cross over to other Marvel shows on Netflix

Apparently we’re going to see a lot more of Claire Temple in Marvel’s Netflix universe of shows.

The medical worker played by Rosario Dawson during the first season of Daredevil — a hybrid of the comics’ version of Claire and the character known as Night Nurse — will return for a second season of the hit Netflix/Marvel series. But according to The Wrap, the actress has also struck a deal with the two companies that will allow her to appear on other upcoming Marvel shows as well.

Here’s what Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, had to say:

“After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second. Claire Temple proved a fan favorite in Season 1, and we can’t wait for fans to see all the plans we have for her next.”

Arrow’s Marc Guggenheim Is Absolutely Interested In Constantine Crossover

Ever since the start of Arrow’s third season, fans were allowed a peek behind the curtain of how magic works in that universe. With mystical items like the Lazarus Pit, and characters like Ra’s Al Ghul, it has become clear that Team Arrow has it’s hands full. But what if Oliver had some help from another corner of the televised DC Universe?

Ever since Constantine was on the rocks, fans began to salivate on the thought of John Constantine crossing paths with Oliver Queen. Not to mention, with Arrow star Stephen Amell stoking the fan flames by declaring he’d do whatever he could to keep the show around, including guest starring on the show, the anticipation has reached a fever pitch.
