Actress Rosario Dawson is set to tackle a new comic book character after landing a role in the new Daredevil series.
The Sin City beauty has been cast as a young woman whose efforts to turn around the fortunes of rough New York City neighbourhood Hell's Kitchen bring her face-to-face with the crime-fighting titular superhero.
Dawson will star opposite Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox as blind attorney Matt Murdock and his Daredevil alter ego, while Vincent D'Onofrio will portray villainous businessman Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin.
The Marvel role will mark Dawson's first job on a series since Gemini Division in 2008 and her second comic book adaptation following the Sin City movie franchise.
The show is due to air on online streaming service Netflix next year (15).
