Curiouser and curiouser…
During Netflix’s Television Critics Association panel, wherein the streaming service announced they’ll release Marvel superhero series (including Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Defenders and possibly, Punisher) every six months, Daredevil’s Steven S. DeKnight snuck in a little nugget of information that could turn out to be a pretty cool MCU film scoop. It could also be considered ***Possible Spoilers for Doctor Strange and/or Captain America: Civil War*** so if you read on, this is your fair warning.
At this point though, this is all completely speculative. First, what exactly did DeKnight (who took over for Drew Goddard, then left after Season 1 because of previous commitments; Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will head up Daredevil’s second season) say about a character he had to change?
“Really the only time that we got a ‘no’ was originally Rosario Dawson’s character had a different name. She was going to be an actual Night Nurse from the comics and the feature side had plans for her down the road, so that’s the only time that I actually ran afoul and we couldn’t do something. We just used a different name, so it’s the same character.”
So, for those who thought Dawson’s Claire Temple might have a Night Nurse vibe, you weren’t completely off. The question now is, when and where will Night Nurse aka Linda Carter show up? Putting a little recent casting news together with this tidbit may send us in one direction, though the possibility exists she may show up — or cameo — even sooner.
As confirmed by True Detective’s Rachel McAdams herself, the actress has an offer to appear in the upcoming Doctor Strange film, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and the SWINTON(!). While most were speculating McAdams would play Clea, perhaps instead, she’s taking on the Night Nurse role?
And though I haven’t yet broken into the Captain America comics — on my pile:
— a little internet sleuthing has me wondering if she might make a little Civil War cameo — maybe in a post-credits scene? (Night Nurse appears in Civil War #2,5 and Captain America Vol 5, #26 & #605, and is “close” with Cap.)
Is this all crazy, or is it just…crazy?
Captain America: Civil War will be out May 6, 2016, and Doctor Strange, November 4th.
