Should Bullseye Return in Disney+ Daredevil Season 4? Charlie Cox Has an Answer

Should Bullseye Return in Disney Daredevil Season 4 Charlie Cox Has an Answer

Daredevil, the Man Without Fear, is a man blinded both literally and metaphorically with grief and anger. Honed to perfection, his mentor teaches him to use his super-enabled and heightened senses to fight against unbelievable odds. And it is this characteristic feature that gives Matthew Murdock the ability to “see” more than other humans.

He uses his assets to fight the injustice roiling the criminal underbelly of Hell’s Kitchen. Often brutalized to the brink of death, he neither backs down nor gives up on his city or the people he loves. However, this unfaltering habit of incessantly charging at Kingpin’s every operation leads the crime lord to bring him down to the bloodiest level. With the mastermind behind the Bullseye storyline still undefeated, does Diney+ Daredevil Season 4 plan to bring back the villain once again?

Daredevil Vs. Bullseye

Benjamin “Dex” Poindexter is a deranged psychotic assassin/mercenary who is manipulated by Daredevil’s arch-nemesis Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin to impersonate the hero and thus incriminate him. His professional career allowed him the liberty and the opportunity to let out his sadistic killing impulses toward bloodletting but now without a job, Kingpin recognizes his bloodthirsty impulses and directs them toward taking down Daredevil.

Daredevil Season 3 was by far the best, if not the goriest season of the series so far. The arc revolved around Matt Murdock struggling with his faith and identity while also introducing one of the most perfectly curated villains of the MCU into the storyline. With an emotionally complex and battle-field competent nemesis, Daredevil in its Netflix final season did up the expectations of how Marvel could go deeper into the bloodier aspects of its comics without holding back.

The Man Without Fear expressly has one rule: never kill anyone. Although the comics have several storylines where the superhero was forced into killing or did so unintentionally, there also existed arcs where Daredevil did kill on purpose, but not without being flooded by guilt or remorse afterward. Although it serves to show his humane nature of choosing justice over vengeance, the Bullseye arc came dangerously close to breaking his streak of not killing his enemies.

Bullseye Gets an Opening Into Daredevil Season 4

With Wilson Fisk now behind bars and a physically disabled Bullseye on the operating table, the future of both the villains is unclear. But Matt Murdock actor, Charlie Cox, has some opinions on the matter. While talking about his experience on set filming Season 3 of the Netflix-Marvel production, he said, “I would have to get more time with Bullseye. We just touched on that story, and we were just gearing up for it before we weren’t allowed to continue. I really enjoyed working with Wilson Bethel on that character.

In the final moments of Season 3, we see the camera zoom in on the villain undergoing spine surgery and we see him wake up. However, what becomes iconic in the shot is his eyes taking on the classic “bulls-eye” symbol. Although nothing has been guaranteed by the writers yet, the cliffhanger leaves the door open for a re-entry of the arch-enemy into the Disney+ series Season 4.
