Hart of Dixie’s Wilson Bethel joins Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3
Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie, Generation Kill) has joined the cast of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3, according to Variety. Bethel will portray an FBI agent whose role is reportedly critical to what’s going on between Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Wilson Fisk/Kingpin.
Though we don’t know any more about the series regular role, there was a character description for an FBI agent that leaked a few months back, leading some fans to assume that this might be the Marvel character Sin-Eater, a.k.a. Stanley Carter. Carter was an NYPD officer who used to be a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and, after an experimental drug made him insane, spends time trying to punish those he feels are sinful.
Wilson Bethel joins returning cast members Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk/Kingpin) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson).
Erik Oleson (Kings, The Man in the High Castle) will be the new showrunner for the series. Oleson will be the third new showrunner for the series, replacing Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who were co-showrunners on the second season of the series. Steven DeKnight was the showrunner in the inaugural season.
Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 will premiere on Netflix in 2018. The third season of Marvel’s Daredevil is Executive Produced by series showrunner Erik Oleson and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), along with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Marvel’s Daredevil is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
Wilson Bethel is known for his work in the series Hart of Dixie and Generation Kill. He had appeared in How to Get Away With Murder, Inherent Vice and Harley and the Davidsons.
