D’Onofrio first played the role of Wilson Fisk, A.K.A. the Kingpin, in the first season of Daredevil, the Marvel Television series on Netflix. The celebrated portrayal of the character earned D’Onofrio the eternal adoration of Marvel fans, as referenced by his initial video.
When Marvel Television was officially folded into Marvel Studios, the possibility of D’Onofrio appearing again on Netflix vanished. However, Fiskmas has come early for us this year, Marvel Blog True Believers, thanks to the surprise return of the character (as portrayed by D’Onofrio) in Hawkeye’s stellar first season.
Hawkeye on Disney+
Have you had the opportunity to watch the season finale of Hawkeye on Disney+, Marvel Blog True Believers? As you might expect from the Kingpin’s appearance as the “last-page reveal” in the penultimate episode of the season, the character plays a significant role in the proceedings… I guess Fiskmas really did come early this year!
Let Marvel Blog know what you think about the return of D’Onofrio as Fisk in the comment section.
