Marvel Studios has announced that Rosario Daweson will join Netflix's "Daredevil" as a recurring guest star.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will play "a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell's Kitchen brings blind attorney Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life." As Vulture notes, that could mean Elektra, but is more likely "Daredevil's civic-minded eventual wife Milla Donovan."

Other vague information regarding Dawson's casting include the fact that her role will include a "journey [that] forever alters the course of [a] battle against the injustices of this broken city."

Netflix's order of 13 "Daredevil" episodes comes as part of a larger pact with Marvel, which also includes "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist," "Luke Cage" and the miniseries "The Defenders."
