Sister Maggie Has Been Cast in DAREDEVIL Season 3
I'm sure you all remember at the end of The Defenders when we see Matthew Murdock a.k.a. Daredevil all bandaged up in a convent hospital after an entire building fell on top of him. But do you remember one of the last lines that were spoken? "Get Maggie. Tell her he’s awake."
Well, Sister Maggie is going to make her way into Daredevil Season 3. Marvel has cast Joanne Whalley (Willow, Wolf Hall) in the role of the character. This upcoming season is looking to draw from the beloved 1980s Frank Miller 'Born Again' storyline from the comics.
Just in case some of you don't know who Sister Maggie is, she is the one who nurses Matt Murdock back to health. Oh, yeah... her name is Margeret Murdock and she’s also his mom! There's a very sad story of deep depression and paranoia behind her character and it will be interesting to see how they handle that in this series.
Marvel TV boss and Daredevil executive producer Jeph Loeb said, "We are big fans of Joanne’s work and are fortunate that someone of her caliber will be joining our already talented family." Showrunner Erik Oleson added, "Joanne is a rare talent and a terrific creative collaborator. Watching her bring her role to life has the writers all pinching ourselves."
We don't know when exactly Daredevil Season 3 will air, but it's definitely coming!
