THE PUNISHER Will Not Feature An Appearance From Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple

It looks like The Punisher will be the first Marvel Netflix show not to feature an appearance from Miss Claire Temple. Find out what actress Rosario Dawson had to say about this after the jump...

Claire Temple was introduced during the first season of Daredevil as the character that would wind up linking all of the Marvel Netflix shows (and heroes) together, and that worked out just fine... for a while. Claire was quite popular with fans at first, but by the time she popped up training at Colleen Wing's dojo in Iron Fist, it was definitely starting to feel like she was being shoe-horned in with little to no explanation.

Temple will return for The Defenders, but Rosario Dawson confirmed that she'll be sitting out The Punisher during an interview with Collider:

"People are busy! There are so many times where I really want it to happen. I really wanted to do a cameo on The Punisher, but it doesn’t always work that way."

I still think Claire has and will again be a great addition to the Marvel/Netflix universe, but must admit I'm relieved to hear she won't randomly turn up next to Frank Castle as his firing Range or something.

What do you guys think? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place, and keep an eye on CBM for some official The Punisher news very soon.

of course not he's not a defender

@auditore - She'll die in defenders
BloodyBed - 4/22/2017, 8:40 AM
@Deonox - that's actually a pretty good call. it would be a really cheap move, but they will probably do it anyways.

@Deonox - Yeah, i've been thinking about that too. She's the Coulson of the Defenders
BaronZemo - 4/22/2017, 9:39 AM
Then of course, Marvel will resurrect her and make a show about her and her hospital interns

That's fine. Still feel like she's gonna die in Defenders

@AdamWarlockHim - dont you say that!
TheArkhamKnight - 4/22/2017, 8:34 AM
@AdamWarlockHim - She's the "Coulson" of The Defenders.
auditore - 4/22/2017, 8:23 AM
and claire only messes with super hero people
MasterMix - 4/22/2017, 8:24 AM
She's gonna die in the Defenders á la Phil Coulsen.
AxeiumTheory - 4/22/2017, 8:24 AM
But how's she gonna get with Frank if she doesn't show up?
AdamWarlockHim - 4/22/2017, 8:24 AM
They gonna end her run on Defenders to make way for Luke and Jessica to be together
GhostDog - 4/22/2017, 8:36 AM
@AdamWarlockHim - I agree.

Honestly, she worked best in Daredevil and even Luke Cage. Never saw the need to stretch her over all the shows but it was kind of fun to see her appear like that.

I like dher as a foil to Matt. Her trying to keep HIM from killing worked well She was a great foil to him and they have great chemistry.

I expect duing Phase 2 of MCU Netflix, they'll do away with her and just focus on the singular stories of each character and cross them over on one another's shows every once in a while. Jessica may ask Matt for help one episode. Luke and Danny will interact more and more.

@AdamWarlockHim - How do you know this? Proof?
AdamWarlockHim - 4/23/2017, 8:51 AM
@Odinborn - nah just what I think is gonna happen
Odinborn - 4/24/2017, 2:50 AM
@AdamWarlockHim - Ah. I'm hoping it doesn't happen. Would be kinda cheap.
