A recent post on Instagram by Arazi Fitness trainer, Naqam Washington has inadvertently confirmed Wilson Brethel for the role of Bullseye in Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 on Netflix.
The post shows Washington posing in between Charlie Cox and Bethel with hash-tags “Daredevil” and “Bullseye”. Bethel was first casted in November for a pivotal role in the third season of the show. The character was initially supposed to be an FBI agent, who plays an important role in the conflict between Cox’s Daredevil and Kingpin.
It was later revealed in That Hashtag Show that Bethel’s character would be none other than Bullseye, the world’s deadliest assassin and Dardevil’s archnemesis from the Marvel comics. Marvel hasn’t confirmed Bethel’s role yet but the casting search described the role as an “athlectic but socially awkward FBI agent” who “has a triggered temper.”
In the comics, Bullseye operated as Kingpin’s hired assassin who infamously killed Electra and Karen Page. He was also known as “Lester” and “Benjamin Pointdexter”. The character was later re-imagined by Jason Aaron during its run on Punisher MAX, which portrayed Bullseye as an expert marksman and combatant. Marvel could be drawing inspiration from this iteration of the character.
It was earlier revealed by Cox during an interview that the third season will be based on the famous “Born Again” storyline where Kingpin is aware of Daredevil’s real identity and he destroys his life. The third season will start from the point where The Defenders crossover left us.
The show will make its debut in the last quarter of 2018.
