Netflix casts Daredevil’s mother, Sister Maggie…

January 28th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Fans of Daredevil will know that his absent mother plays a big part in who he is in the comics… and now it seems she will appear in the third season of the Netflix show.

And she’ll be played by an FTN fan favourite: Joanne Whalley.

At the end of the second season of Daredevil, Matt Murdock’s mother, Maggie, was referenced but now seen and it looks like she’ll definitely be seen this season.

Star of Willow (and once partner of Val Kilmer) Whalley will play Sister Maggie in the third episode of the season which makes sense as word is this season will borrow from the Born Again comics which introduced Matt’s estranged mother.

Marvel TV boss and executive producer Jeph Loeb said of her casting:“We are big fans of Joanne’s work and are fortunate that someone of her calibre will be joining our already talented family.”

Still no word on when Daredevil Season 3 will arrive but we doubt it’ll be too far away.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
