Daredevil

A handful of comic book characters are mostly famous for dying, like Uncle Ben, Jason Todd (at least for a while), and Bucky Barnes (again, temporarily). There are a lot of characters like that in the Daredevil canon, thanks to the fact that writers spent decades thinking the most interesting thing about him was that he constantly suffers from abject misery. In fact, two such characters—Karen Page and Elektra—are now on Netflix’s Daredevil show, and even though Elektra already died once (with her eventual resurrection clearly telegraphed), it seems safe to assume that both of them are still living on borrowed time.

The odds of their survival are going to get significantly worse, though, if series star Charlie Cox gets his wish and the show introduces iconic Daredevil villain Bullseye. He’s the guy responsible for killing both Karen Page and Elektra in the comics, so bringing him on to the show would almost certainly mean it’s setting up at least one of those storylines. Still, the only evidence that it might ever happen comes from Cox, who mentioned at the Wizard World convention in Pittsburgh recently that he’d “like to see Bullseye make an appearance at some point,” adding that it would be “a really interesting opportunity.”

However, he also notes that Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Page) “does not want Bullseye to show up for obvious reasons,” and that the same goes for Elodie Yung (who plays Elektra). If it does happen, though, Elden Henson (who plays Daredevil’s best pal Foggy Nelson) thinks he should be played by Zach Galifianakis. He was probably joking, but Galifianakis would probably end up putting in some kind of crazy awesome performance if he had the chance.
