With all the hype surrounding big Marvel projects like "Captain America: Civil War" or their Netflix shows, "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage," how does the company keep all of their spoilers and cameos intact?
According to Rosario Dawson, who made us all fall in love with Claire Temple during the first season of "Daredevil," it's by not telling anybody anything -- and yes, that includes even the actors themselves.
Speaking with MTV News over the phone yesterday while delivering copies "Call Of Duty: Blacks Ops 3" across the city with Amazon Prime Now, Dawson admitted that while Claire is the "connective tissue" that ties all the Netflix shows together, she knows absolutely nothing about where those tissues... you know, actually connect.
"I only ever get the episode that I’m in pretty much, so I don’t know where it’s going," she said, surprised herself to learn that (mild spoiler alert!) she doesn't actually appear in the first half of "Jessica Jones." " And I think that’s how they do it, they really parse out the information. Like there’s no one person that can take down Marvel, cause there’s no one person knows about it. And they’re keeping me quiet."
Although, she did have some news for us -- Claire's getting a relative in the near future!
"I was on 'Daredevil' and 'Luke Cage' going back and forth, and they cast someone who was supposed to be a family member to me and I was very excited about, I have to say," she said. "When they announce her, I’m sure everybody will be very excited for me as well."
But which show will this mysterious character (my bet's on a mom or a sister) be on? Dawson doesn't even know herself -- in fact, she didn't even know "Luke Cage" had begun filming until she got the call that she was needed.
"They were like, ‘We need you next week’ and I was like, 'No I’m off next week, I’m not shooting "Daredevil,'" she recalled. "And they’re like, ‘No, we’re shooting "Luke Cage."' I was like... [excited gasp] They’re on it, they’re making it happen."
But while Dawson admitted she feels "like an army brat, just kind of jumping from crew to crew," she added that neither she nor the rest of her Marvel family mind all the on-set confusion.
"It keeps an electric feeling kind of going through because it’s not the same experience that we all just have normally on a film or something like that," she said. "The secrecy and privacy makes us feel like we’re all a part of something and we have to protect it and do our best with it before we go and present it."
"Jessica Jones" hits Netflix November 20.
