Daredevil already had its leading man and top villain, and now it can check off the “love interest” box as well.

Marvel has announced that Rosario Dawson will be joining the cast of the Netflix series, scheduled to run for 13 episodes next year. According to THR, Dawson’s role is as follows:

She will play a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell's Kitchen brings blind attorney Matt Murdock (Boardwalk Empire's 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.

It sounds as though Dawson’s will be playing an essential role on the show, which is the first in a series of Marvel-related programming for Netflix that will eventually include Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
