Claire Temple wasn’t just a nurse working at Metro General Hospital, but also a core member of The Defenders. From nursing Matt Murdock back to health, helping Jessica Jones out, learning the martial arts with Danny Rand, and being a love interest for Luke Cage; Claire Temple has not only been the connection amongst the four, but she even fought her own fair share of goons.
Seeing the greenlighting of Daredevil: Born Again, Rosario Dawson hopes to make her own return as the gluing character. After the actress’ Ahsoka series is her next big project; Dawson would only be happier to see the nurse back in action.
Marvel has managed to bring back The X-Men, and The Fantastic Four and introduced even more characters, so to think that we might be able to see the Mandalorian actress pick up where she left off wouldn’t be too far-fetched.
Claire Temple: An Unfinished Story
Claire Temple has made numerous appearances throughout the Netflix adaptations (rights now transferred to Disney+) of a wild chain of series. Making her first appearance in Daredevil, she saved the life of the devil of Hell’s Kitchen more times than needs to be counted. It is no hiding that Rosario Dawson plays an outstanding role in being a key aspect of the tie-in shows.
Following the return of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home and his upcoming cameo in She-Hulk along with Vincent D’Onofrio’s The Kingpin first returning in Hawkeye and also both of them rumored to be part of the Echo series which is still in works within the Marvel Studios.
The actress stated her wish to someday return and give life to the role once again in a recent interview. The Trance star said, “was really excited to know that all of [the Netflix] shows are actually part of the MCU now,” calling out to Disney and Marvel “you know where I am” for a potential return.
With the return of both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio returning to their characters and the potential return of Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, hoping to see Claire Temple running around Metro-Gen would be truly a sight to behold.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Daredevil star Rosario Dawson called for her own return to the MCU in Daredevil: Born Again.
“Oh yeah. For sure. You don’t even see her in that last “tell Claire to go home” moment on Luke Cage.”
Daredevil: Born Again Being a Light of Life
The characters of Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk have now officially been a part of the MCU. Patrick Stewart‘s Professor X and Anson Mount‘s Black Bolt too have found their own place in the mega-franchise.
Daredevil: Born Again, once just a dream for fans of the man in red, has now become a reality in the works. Bringing back all-time favorite characters has been a cycle for the followers of #savedaredevil; a trend that found its way from Twitter to Instagram and furthermore. Bringing back Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple wouldn’t be a task too difficult then.
Dawson’s feeling that her character’s story remained unfinished would probably be a popular opinion so as to believe that she was the soft side for all of the characters centering their shows. Having a story left in the open provides the perfect opportunity to bring a character back without causing any plot holes. Claire as a character provides that very instance and who wouldn’t like to see Temple scold Matt for being stubborn and not taking proper medication?
Rosario Dawson’s Awaited Return In The Scrubs
Marvel has constantly been bringing back its characters. Rosario Dawson has been working with Disney with her projects with Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney itself. Having to see the tired nurse fixing the problems of her surrounding superheroes by providing an outside eye is always refreshing to watch. Even if she were to return to give her character closure the deserved ending; seeing Dawson pick up another syringe to save the day would be more than welcome.
Having a platform as vast as Disney+ and experimenting on shows successfully such as WandaVision, seeing the comeback of the character is much anticipated. Although according to the comics, Claire does not maintain a romantic relationship with Luke Cage, she was much more than just his partner. The upcoming show can certainly make room for her smarts and her intellectual thinking.
Daredevil: Born Again is set to release in Spring 2024.
