Are you excited for Netflix’s new Daredevil series? If not, get ready to go absolutely bananas over the news about the new Marvel show: Rosario Dawson has been cast in a recurring role! Three cheers for the 35-year-old beauty! Who will she be playing? Read on to find out!

The Powers That Be are keeping relatively quiet about Rosario’s upcoming role, but, according to Marvel.com, she will play a “dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.”

If the show sticks pretty close to the comics, the Sin City actress could be playing just about any of the women in Daredevil’s life. That being said, a Marvel exec may have just given away who Rosario will be portraying by talking about how “critical” her role will be in the grand scheme of things.

"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," Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television said. "Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock’s journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil."

While this may apply to most women in the superhero’s life, it does make us think about one kickass gal in particular: Elektra! This doomed love affair and crime-fighting partnership is one of the most memorable in comic book history — and we seriously hope this comes to fruition on the Netflix series.

Do you think Rosario will be playing Elektra? Hit the comments and start speculating!
