The dust has just settled on Daredevil season 3, but showrunner Erik Oleson is already contemplating the show's potential future in a spoiler-filled interview with Entertainment Weekly - including which villains may take center stage.

Spoilers ahead for Daredevil season 3.

Though some Marvel/Netflix shows are getting cancelled, Oleson is hopeful that a fourth season of Daredevil will occur - and that he'll be in charge when it does.

"I can tell you that I’m very hopeful to go do a season 4," Oleson told EW. "There has not yet been any kind of an official pick-up, but if there is, I’m very hopeful that I will be a part of it."

As for which villains could take center stage in a fourth season, Oleson said he's got plans for Bullseye and Kingpin - but was reticent to go into detail.

"I’m not allowed to answer that question, I’m afraid," said Oleson. "Let’s just say we have now seen the origin of Bullseye, and there are many, many stories yet to tell with this cast of characters. Whether season 4 goes in that direction or another, Bullseye will be living and breathing in this world because we’ve now seen how he has been created."

"All I will say is that there is a reason I ended the season the way I ended it," Oleson continued, referring to Bullseye's betrayal of Kingpin, and Matt Murdock sparing Kingpin's life in the season's climax. "There are more stories to tell with all of these characters, but at the very end, I also didn’t want to forever damn Matt’s soul by making him a killer, even though he comes as close to that as he ever has. So, I think let’s see whether or not I get to do more of these seasons."

Daredevil season 3 is currently available on Netflix.
