So while we all deal with the events of Daredevil Season 2, we’re already looking forward to what might be coming in Season 3…
And we’re not alone.
Remember last year there was the whole thing about Jason Statham playing Bullseye this season but then it seemed to end badly? Well, it looks like the actor may be gone but the character is still in the minds of those involved.
Speaking to Screenrant, Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, said that he knows who he’d like to see appearing if there is a third season – but is quick to point out that he doesn’t want to get in trouble and is simply speculating: “Look, I have to preface all of this – because I got in trouble in the past for speculating – so I preface it all by saying I have no idea what the Netflix-Marvel plans are. I have no idea if there’s going to be a third season. If there was one I have no idea what characters would be involved – all that core stuff but you guys get that.
“But as I’ve got to know this show, this character a little bit, I would love to see – and I know this is something that’s speculated about and I have no idea if it’s possible or not possible – having worked with Jon [Bernthal] I would love to see Punisher get his own show. I’d love to see that happen. It’s such a rich character and Jon embodies him in such a spectacular way. Fans are going to be overwhelmed and pleased with what he brought to the character so I’d love to see The Punisher get his own 13 episodes. And if he does, I’d love to be in it [laughs]. I’d love Daredevil to make an appearance.”
But Bullseye in the jewel in the crown, it seems: “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.
Anything else: “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.”
We reckon after Season 2 of Daredevil, it’s a fairly safe bet we’ll get a third and, given that it seems Bullsye almost made the grade this season, we reckon we’ll see him soon… though it’s a safe bet he’ll not be played by Stathem.
