Bullseye is a supervillain in Marvel Comics, created by Marv Wolfman and John Romita Sr. He is a highly skilled assassin and marksman with an uncanny ability to turn almost any object into a lethal projectile.
Colin Farrell was the first one to play Bullseye in live-action. Let’s find out who else has played Bullseye with the best portrayal so far.
Who Plays Bullseye in Daredevil Film (2003)?
Daredevil, led by Ben Afflick didn’t feel like a passionate project but more like a mix ao flashy action scenes, comic book references, awkward humor, and not-so-great acting. However, Colin Farrell, who played Bullseye, stands out as the best part of the movie with his over-the-top performance.
One of the movie’s problems is that it didn’t cast or use its main characters well. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner didn’t fit well for the serious romance between Matt Murdock and Elektra. Their awkward romantic scenes felt out of place in the middle of the action.
While Micheal Clarke Duncan did well as Kingpin, his menacing didn’t quite fit the PG-13 rating of the film. However, Colin Farrell embraced the crazy nature of his role, bringing a sense of comic absurdity to a movie that didn’t take itself too seriously.
Who Plays Bullseye in Daredevil Netflix Series (2015-2018)?
In the Daredevil Netflix series (2015-2018), Bullseye is portrayed by actor Wilson Bethel. He plays the character Benjamin Poindexter, an FBI agent who becomes the formidable and deadly assassin known as Bullseye. Bethel’s portrayal of Bullseye is a significant part of Daredevil Season 3, where the character undergoes a transformation, leading to intense confrontations with Daredevil.
Many people liked Netflix’s Daredevil series because it was darker and more serious than the 2003 movie, which had a campy feel.
Who Plays Bullseye In Daredevil Born Again?
Daredevil is set for a reboot series as a part of MCU Phase 5. The story will start from scratch in Daredevil: Born Again. Almost all cast members will reprise their roles from the 2018 series, but we’re not sure whether Bullseye will return or not.
MCU is very likely to bring Bullseye back in later seasons, so we’re rooting for Wilson Bethel to reprise his role. He nailed it while playing Bullseye in the previous series.
