UPDATE: Sometimes rumors being leaked is not a good thing. Instead of moving forward due to the overwhelming positive response from fans, the opposite happened. According to BLOODY DISGUSTING Statham was “legitimately in heavy negotiations for the role and the leak killed it.” Pure speculation, but it is believed that Statham’s management might have wanted more money after seeing how excited fans were about the news. The bottom line is Statham is no longer up for the role of ‘Bullseye’. Damn…whatta shame.
According to LATINO REVIEW rumors are circulating that MARVEL is targeting action star JASON STATHAM (Furious 7) for the role of badass villain ‘Bullseye’ in season 2 of Netflix’s DAREDEVIL series!
Originally played by Colin Farrell in 2003’s ‘Daredevil’ movie, ‘Bullseye’ is a supervillain who have a uncanny ability to use almost any object as a lethal projectile (ex. shuriken, sai, or even everyday objects like playing cards and pencils). His markmanship is second-to-none when it comes to hitting his target.
Lets cross our fingers that this rumor is TRUE because Statham will absolutely kill it as ‘Bullseye’! He can bring his awesome physicality to the role and take the fight sequences in ‘Daredevil’ to a whole ‘nother level.
Plus, he does have some experience throwing sharp objects at people. Check out the fight clip below from ‘The Expendable 2’ and tell me if he is not perfect as ‘Bullseye’. I dare you.
Stay tuned for further confirmation.
