The Marvel/Netflix program Daredevil is perhaps the best superhero TV show of all time. The show is well known for its brilliant portrayal of both sides of Matt Murdock, including his super heroics, and his time as a lawyer in New York City. The show’s star, Charlie Cox, has not been shy to reveal his love for one of Daredevil’s greatest enemies, Bullseye. The character had been rumoured to appear in Season 2, but those broke down rather quickly when it was revealed that The Punisher would play the season’s main antagonist, alongside Elodie Yung’s Elektra. With The Defenders beginning production, Cox was asked once again if he was still down to have Bullseye appear in Daredevil Season 3.
While at Wizard World Pittsburgh Cox was quoted discussing Bullseye:
“It’s no secret, I’ve said it before and I get in trouble every time I say it, I’d like to see Bullseye make an appearance at some point. I think it’s a really interesting opportunity. Deborah Ann Woll obviously does not want Bullseye to show up for obvious reasons. Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra, doesn’t want Bullseye to show up either.”
Of course, Cox is referencing Bullseye’s role in the Daredevil comic books, in which he, infamously, killed both Karen Page and Elektra, the two loves of Murdock’s life. Bullseye has appeared on the big screen before, as he was portrayed by Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them star, Colin Farrell. Cox’s co-star, Elden Henson revealed who he has heard was being looked at for the part:
“I actually heard they’re going to cast Zach Galifianakis as Bullseye.”
Before you stress out, do not worry! Henson is only joking. After last night’s election, it seems like joking is all we can do right now. But what do you guys think of Bullseye showing up in the third season of Daredevil? Surely Marvel and Netflix have heard the fans’ claims and opinions.
The Defenders is set to hit Netflix in 2017.
