Wealthy criminal mastermind Wilson Fisk/AKA The Kingpin made his debut in 1967’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” #50, and makes his series reveal today as Netflix and Marvel Entertainment give us our first look at Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Jurassic World) in “Marvel’s Daredevil.” Check out the photo in the gallery below!
Kingpin was previously portrayed by John Rhys-Davies in TV movie “The Trial of the Incredible Hulk,” and by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the 2003 film version of Daredevil. Like the rest of the new series, D’Onofrio’s portrayal will likely be a more gritty and grounded take on the obese crime lord.
Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, with executive producers Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”), Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), the full 13-episode season will be made available globally upon release in all territories where Netflix is available. “Marvel’s Daredevil” will premiere all 13 episodes on Netflix April 10.
Starring Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsely aka The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall (Ben Urich), Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley, Wilson Fisk’s right hand man), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Fisk), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), “Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
