After redeeming Wilson Fisk and Elektra, in the sense that they created two amazing characters, it looks like Netflix and Daredevil are finally ready to right the wrongs of the other villain that appeared in the theatrical adaptation: Bullseye.
The news comes after an image was posted to Instagram by the Daredevil costume department. Seen below, the post features a jacket with the words Daredevil Costume department Season 3 on it. Under the D, however, is a big bullseye. Accompanying this is a caption stating, ” “We came to slay the swag game ? #daredevilcostumedepartment #daredevil.”
Interestingly enough, the photo has since been deleted, leaving only the screengrab from above.
Fans have been wondering what the status of the dead-eyed villain was ever since he seemingly appeared in season one episode six (Condemned). In that episode, there is a sniper on the roof who shoots Detective Blake. While there is never a clear shot of the assailant’s face, a close up of his bag was shown featuring a playing card logo. Alongside being an excellent shot with a gun, Bullseye was well known for using playing cards in the comics as deadly projectiles.
Many have argued over this scene since it appeared as to whether it was an easter egg or if it really was Bullseye. While this news doesn’t confirm or deny as to whether that assassin was indeed Bullseye, it will be interesting to see if they use it to introduce him in season three.
Another viable option could be that Wilson “Kingpin” Fisk hires him. Deadline broke the news back in October that Vincent D’Onofrio will be reprising his role as Kingpin for season three.
“Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk,” EP and Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb told Deadline today. He added: “We’re very excited how Marvel’s Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson.”
So far season three is looking pretty amazing. Not only will it introduce Bullseye and see the return of Kingpin, it will also reveal how Matt Murdock survived the events of The Defenders.
