Charlie Cox Already Has Two Major Villains in Mind for ‘Daredevil’ Season 3
Daredevil Season 2 has only been available to stream for a few short days, with no guarantee of a third season before Matt Murdock joins The Defenders, but already Charlie Cox knows who should take aim at the Man Without Fear in Season 3, including a familiar face, and a long-awaited debut.
You’re warned of full spoilers for Daredevil Season 2 from here on out, but suffice to say, whatever rumors placed Jason Statham as a possible candidate for Bullseye, something appeared to change in the second season’s development. One of Matt Murdock’s most notorious nemeses never ended up putting in an appearance, but that hasn’t stopped Charlie Cox from putting forth the name, telling ScreenRant:
If we are fortunate enough to continue making the Daredevil series, I can’t imagine doing a run of Daredevil where Bullseye doesn’t show up at some point. It would be great to have him around at some point. Who would play that part I have no idea but I just think there’s such an interesting, rich character there, and also of course, the history that Bullseye has with Karen Page is an interesting dynamic. When you read the comics it’s etched in a Daredevil memory all that stuff.
Even as Daredevil Season 2 never concealed a surprise Bullseye, still kept under wraps was the return of Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, crossing paths with Jon Bernthal’s Punisher in prison, and later swearing bloody vengeance on Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson upon his release. Of course, we don’t yet know if Netflix would place a potential Daredevil Season 3 before the Defenders mini-series, though Cox understandably also advocated for the Kingpin’s return:
I’d also like personally, again if we continue to make the Daredevil series, rather than have a new character every season I’d love us to explore more of the Wilson Fisk stuff. It’d be great if at some point Vincent D’Onofrio would come back for a season. There’s so much Daredevil-Wilson Fisk left untold. As he really came into his own, as Wilson Fisk turned into the Kingpin at the end of season one, I’d love to see what that now does to the Daredevil-Fisk dynamic going forward if we were to do a season 3 or 4 or whatever.
Marvel took only 11 days to renew Daredevil last year, though it certainly seems Bullseye would again top the list of characters fans want to see in the Netflix MCU. Should Marvel move forward on a third season straight-away, or are Luke Cage and Iron Fist deserving of more spotlight until The Defenders?
All episodes of Daredevil Season 2 are now streaming on Netflix.
