Alice Eve — best known for the likes of Star Trek Into Darkness and Black Mirror — was confirmed during Comic-Con to be playing the character and enthused that her portrayal is "very, very violent". Created by Ann Nocenti and John Romita, Mary Walker made her debut in Daredevil and suffers from dissociative identity disorder, following an incident at a brothel where Mary worked. Matt Murdock had tracked someone down to the brothel and accidentally knocked Mary out of a window as he attacked the man. This provoked Mary — following a lifetime of physical and emotional abuse — to vow that no man would ever hurt her again, leading to two further personalities: Typhoid Mary and Bloody Mary. These see her switch from being a shy and quiet ordinary person to a super-powered killer with martial-arts skills, as well as a healthy dose of telekinesis and pyrokinesis. Basically, she's bad news to anyone she comes into contact with.
