Wilson Bethel reportedly playing Bullseye in Daredevil season 3

Well it looks like another one of Daredevil‘s big villains is set to join the series, as a new report suggests that Wilson Bethel will play the deadly assassin Bullseye!

When Bethel was first cast in the third series, he was supposedly playing “Steve” and according to his character breakdown is described as “an awkward FBI agent that needed the structure of the bureau to keep the darkness inside him subdued” – which lead to many guessing he would play a version of the Sin-Eater in the show.

But according to The Hashtag Show, the Hart of Dixie actor will be bringing the skilled marksman to life, and the character will be inspired by writer Jason Aaron’s run on Punisher MAX. This version of Bullseye reimagined the character as Sheldon Pendergrass, a highly-skilled marksman and deadly hand-to-hand combatant.

This adds another fantastic element to what looks like a very exciting third series, as we know that the fantastic Vincent D’Onofrio’s is returning as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin and the series is set to be based on the popular comic book run ‘Born Again’.

So what do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments below!
