Scott Glenn to Reprise Role of Stick in Second Season of Daredevil. It looks like Matt Murdock’s mentor Stick will be sticking around as Scott Glenn is expected to return as the character for the second season of the Netflix series Daredevil. Keep reading for more details on his return.
Marvel officially made the announcement that veteran actor Scott Glenn would reprise his role as Matt’s (Charlie Cox) mentor when Daredevil returns in 2016. The reason for the wise old man’s return is because he will pull Matt into a new operation that the lawyer doesn’t want to be a part of.
“After seeing Scott’s performance in the first season, we knew that we had to bring him back for more,” says Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. “He is an extraordinary actor and we leapt at the chance to expand on his adventures with Matt and Daredevil.”
“In some ways, Stick is to Marvel’s Daredevil what Scott Glenn has been to film and TV,” adds showrunner Marco Ramirez, “a magnetic and awesome force to be reckoned with. It’s an honor to welcome him back, and the Daredevil team can’t wait to unleash Scott’s unique brand of bad-assery upon the world in season two.”
Glenn will appear in three episodes of the second season. Also returning are Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, and Rosario Dawson who will be joined by new regulars Jon Bernthal playing Frank Castle and Elodie Yung as Electra.
Stick was introduced in the first season as a blind man who trains a young Matt Murdock in the ways of martial arts and mastering his extrasensory abilities. He later returns to recruit an adult Matt in destroying a weapon but soon have a falling out causing Stick to leave the city. Stick later confides in a mysterious scarred man about Matt’s role in what’s coming next. It looks like we may find out what that is once the second season comes out.
