It seems that the iconic ‘Born Again’ storyline will be the main basis for series 3 of Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil, as Wolf Hall alum Joanne Whalley has been cast as Sister Maggie!
According to Deadline, this confirms what we all thought after watching the closing scenes of The Defenders, that Netflix are going to bring the 1980s Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli novel to life! We last saw the injured Matt Murdock at a church being cared for by a group of nuns, with one of them instructing the others to get Sister Maggie…
Marvel TV boss and Daredevil EP Jeph Loeb commented: “We are big fans of Joanne’s work and are fortunate that someone of her caliber will be joining our already talented family. Joanne is a rare talent and a terrific creative collaborator. Watching her bring her role to life has the writers all pinching ourselves.”
Daredevil series 3 is set to return to Netflix later this year.
