While we already know that Vincent D’Onofrio will be back as Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, for the third season of Marvel’s Daredevil, there’s now some news on somebody who’ll be having a pivotal role to play between the larger-than-life villain and Charlie Cox’s Hornhead.
As per Variety, Hart of Dixie and Generation Kill’s Wilson Bethel has joined the show as an FBI agent who will have a critical part to play in the ongoing battle between Fisk and Daredevil. A series regular gig for this new season, there’s already rumours that this FBI agent could well end up being Stanley Carter – a comic book character better known as the nefarious Sin-Eater. Carter was an NYPD officer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who ended up going insane due to an experimental drug. From there, he decided to punish those he felt had sinned, most famously killing off one of Spider-Man’s closest allies, Jean DeWolff.
Details are pretty sketchy on Season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil at this juncture, although we known that Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page and Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson will be joining the returning D’Onofrio and Cox.
With The Man in the High Castle’s Erik Oleson taking over showrunner duties, Marvel’s Daredevil is set to return to Netflix at a to-be-confirmed date next year.
