Rumor: Jason Statham being sought to play Bullseye in Netflix's Daredevil

06.05.2015

Daredevil Jason Statham Bullseye Banner

Sometimes a rumor is just too good to be true, but I have my fingers crossed that Latino-Review's Daredevil scoop is legit. Jason Statham was recently spotted having a meeting with Marvel, and a source tells the site that the actor is being eyed to play Bullseye in the second season of the Netflix series.

LR goes on to say they've heard Elektra will appear in the upcoming season, which isn't a huge surprise since the character was teased in the first season, however the site is also claiming it will feature other Daredevil villains as well, like Mr. Fear and Mysterio. I'm not sure if Sony has the rights to Mysterio because of his connection to Spider-Man, but even if they do, they might let Marvel use the character since the studios are now playing nice with each other.

Although Mysterio may be better known as a Spider-Man villain, the character played a big role in the eight-issue story arc "Guardian Devil," which also involved Karen Page. The Kevin Smith-penned story is one of my all-time favorite Daredevil comics, and I would absolutely love to see it come to life on the small screen. Do you think there's any truth to these Daredevil rumors, and would you be OK with Jason Statham playing Bullseye?

Daredevil season 2 will premiere on Netflix in 2016.

This would be so fucking badass and perfect, but I'll believe it when I see it. I am one of the few that actually liked Colin Farrell's take on the character, but this I want to happen.

Another superhero that throws cards? So is he a copy of Gambit or is Gambit a copy of him?

Seriously who throws a shoe?

No he's not a copy of Gambit and no cards aren't the only thing he throws. He has pinpoint accuracy with everything and anything he throws. Those cards he threw didn't explode with kinetic energy like Gambit, they slit throats. He is psychopathic, has a skeleton laced with adamantium similar to wolverine's, and can hit anything he targets except Daredevil. The fact that Daredevil makes him miss drives him all the more crazy.

One rumor that I hope is actually true. Nice to see Jason Statham wanting to take on more villainous roles, he would make a cool Bullseye.

He was born to play the character...

His role in the Expendables movies was basically Bullseye but without a mask. He always had the knife throwing stuff down and was really good at shooting a gun.

I just feel like the Netflix series would kind of be a step back for the guy. No offense to Netflix, but I would rather see Statham on the big screen as a villain.

I'm not sure Statham will do it.

Last I checked, Statham isn't a fan of this genre.

Considering Daredevil is a street-level hero, and the stunt-work is more practical, and Marvel is the Golden Goose right now, I could see Statham agreeing to this. I wouldn't necessarily expect him in the next Guardians of the Galaxy or Avengers movie, but Daredevil, sure.

That would be great casting, if it happens. Martial arts have been an integral part of Daredevil, and I'd love to see more of it in the second season.

Would be awesome, but didn't he state how comic book movies were beneath him?

And my personal pick for the role is still Timothy Olyphant.

Great casting if it happens, I seem to remember a few years ago he desperately wanted to play Daredevil, he is a big fan, so this could happen.

This might be considered the token cool thing Jason Statham does every so often - I mean c'mon, who else thought it was "wicked" when he popped up at the end of Furious... Fast... or was it Fast and the Furious 6? Token cool thing out of the way, he then goes back to starring in his Jason Statham movies.

I don't mind seeing Statham as Bullseye. He looks the part and I hope it won't turn out to be as hokey as Colin Farrell's Bullseye.

LOL the Latino Review

this has as much legitimacy as me saying I am in the presidents private circle.

though it would be cool if it were true.
