Wilson Bethel to play the role of 'Bullseye' in Marvel's 'Daredevil' season 3
Bullseye is a psychopathic assassin who does not possess any real superpowers but is able to use almost any object as a lethal projectile.
Season 3 of Netflix's 'Daredevil' has been in the making for a while, with filming having begun in November 2017 and is intended for a 2018 release. Details about the upcoming season slowly making its way into the media indicate that it might just be the best one so far.
Actor Wilson Bethel (Heart of Dixie) was revealed to have been cast in the show as an FBI agent this past November, with Marvel TV's description for the character reading: "28-35, 5’9-6’1, Open ethnicity. An athletic but socially awkward FBI Agent, needs structure and rules to suppress the darkness inside himself. Athletic with medium build, responsible and resourceful, hair-trigger temper. SERIES REGULAR."
The vague and interpretable nature of that description led to fan theories that Bethel would possibly be portraying a version of Sin-Eater but it has now been revealed that he will be, in fact, playing Bullseye. The source is anonymous Reddit user '/u/defenders_throwaway,' who in the past has predicted leaks for other Marvel shows such as 'The Punisher' and 'Defenders' with accuracy. Following these leaks, the user seems to have deleted his account.
He wrote: "currently working on the first episodes of DD3. It starts really slow and introduces too many new characters. the plot could go either way, hard to say at this point. But they do a whole episode about Bullseye’s background and I think its cinematically the best episode out of all of Marvel shows so far. Kingpin gets all the files and tapes about Bullseye and he “walks” through bullseyes memories to look at his life. it is fantastic."
"DD3 is a bit slow and convoluted. It really picks up the pace in the middle and I think the end of the season might turn out great. Bullseye is legit scary. Nobody wears their costume from the comics. DD is more of the same, but again, anything involving Bullseye is a standout. They really nail the fact that he’s deadly from afar," he continued.
Bullseye is a psychopathic assassin who does not possess any real superpowers but is able to use almost any object as a lethal projectile. He uses the opportunities afforded by his line of work as an agent of the FBI to exercise his homicidal tendencies and to work out his vendettas against Deadpool.
Bullseye will be joining the villain of season 1, Wilson Fisk, who is expected to be the primary focus in the upcoming third installment. Also confirmed are Jay Ali, who will play fellow FBI agent Ray Nadeem, and Joanne Whaley as Matt's mother, Sister Maggie. Charlie Cox, Elden Henson, Deborah Ann Woll and Vincent D’Onofrio are all set to reprise their roles as well.
