We have already seen the successful Marvel show on Netflix come up with superb portrayals of Kingpin, The Hand, and Elektra, but, there was one major villain absent from that list, and he is Bullseye. Daredevil costume department shared a photograph, and the logo in it apparently suggests that Bullseye is going to be crucial to Season 3.
This jacket has the famous Daredevil logo with season 3 mentioned in the right-hand corner, but, it is the round logo of Bullseye behind which grabs our attention. It was already being speculated that he would be debuting on Netflix, but, this one seems to be almost an official confirmation.
The image was shared on social media with the caption “We came to slay the swag game 🎯 #daredevilcostumedepartment #daredeviI. It remains to be seen how they are going to merge him into the show, but, the chances are that he will be a person hired by a dogged Kingpin. As seen in Daredevil’s second season, Fisk is no less a threat in the prison as he is out in the open, and there is probably none better to re-establish his dominance of New York than Bullseye.
After Netflix and Marvel have aptly portrayed The Punisher and Elektra, the introduction of Bullseye is really tempting as he continues being a popular villain in the comics.
His last live-action portrayal wasn’t able to meet the expectations. Collin Farrel played the character in the Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and Farrell did impress with his energy in the role. Sadly, there were various below par effects and scenes which let the film down, especiallythat “let’s grab all the glass in stacks and throw them like ninja stars” moment.
Anyway, we are sure that such a loud portrayal won’t be hurting Daredevil Season 3, and we might see the villain more often soon.
Luke Cage is releasing on June 22 on Netflix. Other Marvel and Netflix shows lined up, include Iron Fist Season Two, The Punisher Season Two, Daredevil Season Three, and Jessica Jones Season Three.
