Netflix announced the return during a panel for Luke Cage
Netflix has confirmed that Daredevil will be returning for a third season, during a panel discussing the forthcoming Luke Cage series.
Starring Charlie Cox as lawyer Matt Murdoch, Daredevil was one of Netflix’s first superhero focussed seasons, with the recent second season starring Jon Berthnal as villain The Punisher.
During a Comic Con panel for the forthcoming Jessica Jones spin-off Luke Cage, Entertainment Weekly has reported that Netflix announced that Daredevil will be returning for a third season.
Charlie Cox, who plays the Daredevil himself, has previously stated that he’d like to see the supervillain Bullseye make his way to the small screen.
Speaking to Screenrant, Cox commented: “If we are fortunate enough to continue making the Daredevil series, I can’t imagine doing a run of Daredevil where Bullseye doesn’t show up at some point. It would be great to have him around at some point.”
Continuing on the subject, Cox said: “Who would play that part, I have no idea, but I just think there’s such an interesting, rich character there, and also – of course – the history that Bullseye has with Karen Page is an interesting dynamic.
“When you read the comics, it’s etched in a Daredevil memory, all that stuff.” Daredevil season two premiered on Netflix on March 18. A premiere date for season three is yet to be confirmed.
