'Daredevil' Just Cast the Mother of All Spoilery Roles

SPOILERS for the Upcoming Third Season of Daredevil

Of course, there is going to be a Daredevil Season 3 on Netflix. You didn’t think that having Matt Murdock beaten nearly to death at the end of The Defenders and put into a convent was just for laughs, did you? Of course you didn’t. You read the Daredevil comic books. Right?

Did you know that Matt’s mother abandoned him as a baby because of postpartum depression. It’s true. Now, where was it that she lived after leaving him and her husband? Oh yes, a convent. Sister Maggie. A nun. That is also Matt’s mommy. And when Matt was pummeled and left at a convent in the comics, Sister Maggie is the one that nursed him back to health.


Probably unrelated, but Joanne Whalley (Willow) has been cast as Maggie in Season 3 of Daredevil.



Does this mean that Sister Mother Maggie Murdock will be the one taking care of her son? Does this mean that the rest of that comic’s run will also come to fruition, with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk returning, only to be defeated once and for all?

We’ll find out soon enough. Filming began last November, and the third season is expected later this year.
