Joanne Whalley, the British “bad girl” of the 90s has joined the cast of Netflix’s Daredevil for season three to play Matt Murdock’s mother, Sister Maggie, according to reports from Deadline.
After the events of The Defenders, season three of Daredevil looks to follow Frank Miller’s ‘Born Again’ storyline. Written by Miller with art by David Mazzucchelli, the storyline first appeared in Daredevil #227–231.
It will be interesting to see how far Netflix takes the ‘Born Again’ story, in the comics, Karen Page became a heroin addict and was reduced to starring in pornographic films in Mexico. Strapped for cash, she sells the information that Matt Murdock is Daredevil for a shot of heroin. The Kingpin gets this information and terrorizes Murdock on an emotional and physical level. This storyline would also take Deborah Ann Woll’s character to a very dark place.
Also in the comics, Whalley’s character Sister Maggie nurses Murdock back to health after a beating by the Kingpin. Vincent D’Onofrio return in season three to reprise his role as Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime.
Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix looks to return in the fall of 2018.
