The second season of Daredevil is set to introduce several familiar villains, and according to a new rumor Bullseye may be played by Jason Statham.
According to Latino Review, Statham has been spotted meeting with Marvel while promoting his movie Spy. It’s only a rumor, but they claim that’s who Marvel is looking at for the iconic villain. Hopefully they give him a better costume than the movie version, which really wasn’t a costume at all.
Also according to the site we’ll see Mr. Fear, Mysterio, and Elektra in the second season. Elektra is absolutely confirmed as audition tapes of actresses trying out for the role have leaked, and she was also mentioned in the first season of the show. Bullseye wouldn’t be a shock, but Mysterio definitely would. Although it would be a cool way to help establish Spider-Man’s rogues gallery in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The second season of Daredevil is expected to film sometime this summer for an undetermined premiere date on Netflix. Most likely we’ll see it early next year around the same time that the first season went up on the streaming service.
