In late August, the team at That Hashtag Show got their hands on a character breakdown for a new series regular for the upcoming third season of Daredevil. The character, an FBI agent with a suppressed dark side, was the first of many FBI agents to be cast for the series, but his description was far different from the rest. With production just underway, Marvel TV has now cast Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie, The Astronaut Wives Club) as an FBI agent in what we believe is that role.
While we know Wilson Fisk will be back for the third season, we agreed with THS that this character sounded like another antagonist. While there’s still been no clarification on the character’s identity, we believed he might be an adaptation of Stanley Carter/Sin-Eater. Better known for his role in a famous Spider-Man arc, Sin-Eater also has a comic book history with Daredevil and we think this type of dark, twisted character is exactly the type of villain Marvel TV would love to adapt. However, we aren’t ruling out the possibility that they could pull an Iron Man 2 Whiplash and combine elements of Sin-Eater with Bullseye, a villain fans have been longing for in the show.
Daredevil, Season 3 is filming now and is expected to air sometime late in 2018!
