The Hulu Main Stage at this year's New York Comic-Con hosted the cast and creatives behind Daredevil Season 3, and there were some details about the new villain coming to the show.
Wilson Bethal's role was described as "the worst kept secrets in Marvel history," by executive producer Jeff Loeb. Bethal is going to be playing FBI Agent #2, also known as "Pointdexter," but, as fans deduced, he'll eventually become Bullseye.
Bethel said that he was “extremely honored to tell the story of how Benjamin Poindexter becomes Bullseye,” at which point Charlie Cox, who plays Matt Murdock/Daredevil, leaped out of his seat and drew the target logo on Bethel’s forehead.
The footage shown during the panel showed that another villain, Wilson Fisk, will be manipulating Pointdexter to pit him against Daredevil. Fisk, once again portrayed by Vincent D'Onofrio, leverages Pointdexter's troubled career as an FBI agent and, like Bethel and Vincent D’onofrio's offscreen relationship "It's the beginning of a very weird relationship."
Daredevil Season 3 comes to Netflix on October 12.
