Things are certainly wrapping up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie front with next year’s Avengers 4 right around the corner. From what we know, it will essentially bring an end to over a decade of storytelling before launching into the next phase of the entire shebang. While things have never been as clean-cut on the TV front, it looks like the Marvel Netflix series may have a change coming up in the very near future.
Actress Rosario Dawson recently attended London Comic-Con, and over the course of the past few years, she’s portrayed Night Nurse Claire Temple in shows Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. Currently, she is on deck to return in the second season of Luke Cage (which will hit Netflix next month), but will she be back once that’s aired? Here’s what she had to say:
“I don’t know if I’ll be back after this, to be honest, but it’s been an amazing few years. I’ve been on a lot of different shows. I mean, I don’t know if maybe they do a third season of Luke Cage potentially, or maybe if they figure out some kind of way for me to be on The Punisher – just so I can feel like I’ve done every show. But it’s been like, my daughter is in high school, so I kinda wanna not be 3,000 miles away for work.”
I don’t really blame her. While acting is a gig that many see as glamorous, it can take you away from the people you truly care for for months at a time. Does this mean that the street-level heroes of New York will need to start turning to a different Night Nurse to help them with their wounds? Does this also mean that the relationship between Claire and Luke is doomed? Well, given the history Jessica and Luke have the comics, I guess that last part’s a given, but losing Dawson will be quite a shame.
When Marvel first experimented with Daredevil, Dawson gave the entire project some real weight and credibility, and I’d argue she still does the same to this date, and is a joy whenever she’s on screen. That being said, like Coulson before her, perhaps it’s time for the band of shows to grow beyond the status quo and change things up before it all gets too old and convoluted.
