CBTVB: Joanne Whalley Cast in Crucial Role for Daredevil Season 3 (SPOILERS)

By Muuka Muyumba

Veteran British actor Joanne Whalley has signed on with Netflix and Marvel for the upcoming Daredevil season 3. Whalley is a seasoned actor of stage and screen in England and America who will now portray a classic character in the Daredevil ‘Born Again’ saga.

Sister Maggie first appeared in the Daredevil #229 (April, 1986) and was the creation of writer Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. In the comics, she nurses Matt back to health after a devastating encounter with the Kingpin. The story details the Kingpin’s meticulous plan to discover the true identity of Daredevil, and his subsequent tearing down of his personal and public life.

Whalley’s casting is a bright shining signal that season 3 will follow that storyline as her character must nurse Matt (Charlie Cox) back to health after the devastation of The Defenders toppling of the Midland Circle building, and his emotional devastation of losing Elektra (Elodie Yung). (SPOILERS) Like the comics, Matt is likely to discover Maggie is his long-lost mother (SPOILERS).

“Joanne is a rare talent and a terrific creative collaborator,” added Erik Oleson, Showrunner and Executive Producer. “Watching her bring her role to life has the writers all pinching ourselves.”

Season 3 of Daredevil is set to hit Netflix later on this year.
