Rosario Dawson indicated earlier this year she was looking to move on from appearing in Marvel's Netflix shows, and it's looking like she stayed true to her word. Jeph Loeb confirmed Dawson's Claire Temple won't be along for the ride in Iron Fist Season 2 (via CBR), but said that doesn't mean she'll be gone forever:
“Claire won’t be in there, but our relationship with Rosario [Dawson] is awesome and we love her, she loves us and — when the story lends itself into that place and hopefully she’s available — we go down that road,” Loeb explained. “Believe me, there isn’t any showrunner who hasn’t come in and said, ‘So where are we with Rosario?’ And we go, ‘Well, let’s tell the story and figure it all out.'
I'm glad to hear Marvel is finally giving Dawson a break. Don't get me wrong, I love her character, but there comes a point where you gotta wonder why this non super powered individual continues to pop up with no real rhyme or reason. I'm hoping that overall Marvel starts to shy away from its gimmicky cameos unless there's a valid reason for that character to be in the story. Agree? Disagree?
