DAREDEVIL Adds TRUE BLOOD’s Deborah Ann Woll to Play Love Interest Karen Page

Marvel’s Daredevil TV series has added Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) to the cast to play Karen Page.  The character has long been the blind superhero’s love interest in the comics, and it looks like the Netflix limited series will continue that tradition.  In the comics, the two go through periods of break-ups and make-ups that ultimately ends with her being killed by Bullseye, because what good is a female character if she can’t be murdered by the hero’s arch-nemesis? (see also: Elektra)  Hopefully, the Daredevil TV series makes Page more than a love interest followed by tragedy fodder.

Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Murdock/Daredevil, along with Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as the crime lord Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson, who has an unknown role on the show.  Daredevil will premiere on Netflix next year.

    Im hoping and will be looking forward to the storyline when Page starts using heroin and becomes a porn actress who then sells DD’s secret identity to her drug dealer, who goes on to sell that information to the kingpin. If done right those episode(s) will be epic!

      Totally agree about the dark tone as it would be pretty epic to watch but I don’t think Disney would ever allow it.

        That precisely WHY they put the show on Netflix, so that they can get away with doing stuff like that. But I doubt that they’ll adapt Born Again in season 1, that’s something that you have to build up to.

    I read an article about her and her husband and how they are dealing with a disease that is slowly making him go blind. Perhaps this helped her and gave her some familiarity or awareness of what its like to be the loved one of someone who’s blind. Regardless I think she’s a good choice!

    This is sounding like it could get messy … Marvel will find a way to sterilize the story line and ruin it unless they have decided that the Netflix series don’t take place in the squeaky clean Marvel movie universe where Tony Stark can’t be an alcoholic.
