One of Marvel’s qualities that make them so popular with fans is that they are more than happy to introduce all kinds of characters with rich comic book history into their movies and television shows. We’ve seen characters like Ant-Man and Ghost Rider; characters that either flopped or were too tricky for studios to touch in the past. Fox’s highly successful X-Men franchise has yet to touch Scarlet Witch, a character that they have the rights to use, and that Marvel has experienced massive success with.
However, Marvel’s repertoire is missing one character that we’d all expected to see by now: Bullseye. The card-throwing assassin has been Daredevil’s number one baddie for many years in the comics, yet he has yet to make an appearance in Netflix’s beloved Daredevil.
Fans aren’t the only ones hoping for him to make an appearance, though. Marvel’s very own Charlie Cox had this to say about the villain joining the franchise:
It’s no secret, I’ve said it before and I get in trouble every time I say it, I’d like to see Bullseye make an appearance at some point. I think it’s a really interesting opportunity. Deborah Ann Woll obviously does not want Bullseye to show up for obvious reasons. Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra, doesn’t want Bullseye to show up either.
We’re with you, Charlie!
In the comics, Bullseye is responsible for the deaths of both Karen (Woll) and Elektra (Yung), which explains their lack of excitement, but Elden Henson, who plays Foggy Nelson, already has an interesting idea for casting:
I actually heard they’re going to cast Zach Galifianakis as Bullseye.
Regardless of who plays Bullseye, seeing him join the MCU would certainly be fun. There’s no word yet on whether we’ll ever see him, but the third season of Daredevil isn’t set to begin production until after The Defenders, which would provide the show with the perfect opportunity to make a complete one-eighty and focus on a whole new villain.
If Bullseye were to join the MCU, who would you want to play him? Sound off in the comments!
