While the Daredevil & Elektra relationship may be the most know romantic relationship of Matt Murdock, his first love was actually Karen Page. While she was a mere throw-away character in the 2003 film, The Hollywood Reporter indicates that, the Netflix series marks the first time the Karen character “will be brought to life in a meaningful way.” To do this, Marvel & Netflix have cast Deborah Ann Woll. Most will recognize her from “True Blood.” While I stopped watching that show a couple seasons ago, I did enjoy her performance. Dave still watches, and assures me she is one of the few reasons he still watches the show. As for the character herself; Karen Page is the” longest-running love interest for Daredevil. The character was created by Stan Lee and first appeared in the very first issue of Daredevil in April 1964. She’s the secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock who eventually learns of his secret life as a superhero.” Daredevil” also stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, and Rosario Dawson in a unspecified role. The series will be released at some time in 2015.
