We're a little over two weeks from the Season 3 premiere of Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix, and the show already looks like the bloodiest affair to fall upon any of the Marvel characters on the streaming giant.
We've already seen that Daredevil and Wilson Fisk's blood feud will be the focus of this season; Fisk is ready to get vengeance on Daredevil being the reason he was locked down for so long, which finds him being on some "by any means necessary" ish. That forces Matt Murdock's hand, pushing him to fight evil with evil. In the official Season 3 trailer, Fisk's plan comes to fruition, with him seemingly finding someone to be "his" Daredevil, effectively having him wreak havoc on the city and throw mud upon the Daredevil name in the court of public opinion.
That faux Daredevil now has a name: Agent Dex. In a new piece that Netflix dropped on Agent Dex, we get to see inside the head of the next villain to hit Netflix's Marvel series. Dex seems to be fed up; he's an FBI agent and isn't afraid to display his frustration over his current situation. "If I were wearing a mask," Dex says, "the press would be calling me a hero." His conflicts with his position and the world he's in drives him to the brink of madness, and in turn puts him in the perfect position to be used as a tool for Wilson Fisk's battle with Daredevil.
Murdock keeps it a buck, saying that Fisk has found someone who could kill him. Dex, wearing the red Daredevil costume, takes on all comers during the latter half of the video, including getting the best of the real Daredevil himself.
Now, it's not specifically laid out in the piece, but comic book fans know exactly who "Agent Dex" is, and a little bit of digging brings out who this feared individual is. It's been noted that Agent Dex is being portrayed by Wilson Bethel, whose character in the show is named Benjamin Poindexter, who in the Marvel Comics is one of the aliases of Bullseye. He's one of the most deadly assassins to ever take on (and, at times, best) Daredevil; he's even donned the Daredevil costume in the comics before. Allusions to Bullseye in the clip above can be found in the dad hat he rocks with the white bullseye on it, as well as his proficiency with hitting his target with a number of weapons, including knives and Daredevil's baton.
Bullseye making his mark on this season just upped the ante of violence and will spell trouble for Matt Murdock if he doesn't figure things out. You can check out more shots of "Agent Dex" below, and be sure to have Oct. 19 marked on your calendars for your Marvel's Daredevil Netflix binge.
