Charlie Cox Says He Wants Bullseye in DAREDEVIL Season 3 and Reveals How He Blinded Himself
Marvel and Netflix are pushing forward with a third season of Daredevil, and that's sure to come with the introduction of more new characters. Someone that actor Charlie Cox would love to add to the mix is Bullseye. Of course, his co-stars don't share that same enthusiasm. In an interview with ScreenGeek, he explained:
“It’s no secret, I’ve said it before and I get in trouble every time I say it, I’d like to see Bullseye make an appearance at some point. I think it’s a really interesting opportunity. Deborah Ann Woll obviously does not want Bullseye to show up for obvious reasons. Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra, doesn’t want Bullseye to show up either.”
For those of you who are familiar with the comics then you know why Woll and Yung don't want to bring in Bullseye... because he ends up killing them. Of course, Marvel has been known to change things up for the sake of the MCU, so if they did introduce Bullseye, they could take his story arc into another direction. The character could definitely add some hardcore emotional weight to the series.
Cox goes on to talk about how he purposely blinded himself so that he could portray the character properly.
“I don’t know if you know this [or not] but on the first season, I was trying to figure out how to do it. I went to this specialist, an opticianist – and I had these lenses made that were identical to my eyes but they completely blinded me. You put them in and I couldn’t see a thing and I thought great, I’ll do that and I don’t have to do any acting. The problem with that was that after every take, someone from the crew had to come and get me and lead me away and kind of sit me down. After the second day, I was like this is going to get really old, really quick.”
It doesn't sound like it would be very fun or easy to be wearing those lenses when trying to play this character, especially in those action sequences! I seriously doubt that he wore them when they shot those scenes, though.
The next time we'll see Daredevil in action is in The Defenders, which is being released in 2017. Would you like to see Bullseye make his grand entrance in the MCU in season three?
