Marvel has officially announced that Rosario Dawson will not only return as Claire Temple for the second season of Daredevil, but that a new deal will allow her to appear in any of Marvel’s other Netflix original series, including A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

“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,” said Jeph Loeb, executive Producer and Head of Marvel TV.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Comic Book Creator Gives His First Reaction To The Netflix Series

Brian Michael Bendis wrote the MarvelMAX comic book series Alias with artist Michael Gaydos from 2001 - 2004. Responding to an Ask Me Anything question to his Tumblr page on how much he had been consulted over the new series, Bendis responded:

“I know I’ve been very low-key on talking about to Jessica Jones TV show but I think I have to stop doing that because I can’t hold it any longer.  I’m going to burst. The show is so good. I have seen the first couple of episodes and because I didn’t work on it directly I can say this with full no ego fanfare: I loved it!! and believe me, I was going to be the hardest on it. harder than any of you.

Jessica is a part of my DNA. A bad Jessica Jones show would have hurt me deeply. BUT it is faithful and lively and everything that I could personally have wanted from the show. The mean streets of Marvel Netflix from a different perspective than Matt’s but at the same time… it all fits. Just like the comics on their best day. and just like Netflix DD, the look of the show is cracklin’ noir but with its own palette.

I did not work on the show because I’m working on Powers, and I can’t be everywhere, and also the show was ALWAYS in very very very good hands. I had read the very first drafts of Melissa Rosenberg’s pilot when it was at ABC and I was so flattered by her faithfulness and just getting why we made the book in the first place. I met with the assembled writer’s room and had the surreal experience of finally being in a room where I knew the answers to people’s question.

Krysten Ritter is soooo good. and Michael Colter. Wait until you see Michael Colter. 

The casting of Luke Cage, in my opinion, and have said this to everyone behind the scenes, is as strong and spot on as the casting of Tony Stark. its probably the hardest to cast and they got it. perfect.”

The thirteen part Jessica Jones series is adapted and executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg and stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica, Mike Colter as Luke Cage and David Tennant as Kilgrave. It is expected to premiere late this year.
