Vincent D’Onofrio, actor behind Kingpin, shared a photo of himself during a workout for the upcoming Echo show. Netflix’s Daredevil has established itself as one of the most cherished and highly appreciated entries in Marvel legend despite not being produced by Marvel Studios. Many things contributed to the popularity of the mature series, including the writing, acting, and plot, but Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, or Kingpin, the big-bad crime boss of the Marvel universe, was one of the main causes.

Vincent D’Onofrio Shared A Picture On Twitter On His Workout

Fans have been eager to see Daredevil and Kingpin return to the MCU ever since the well-liked series suffered cancelation during the closure of Marvel TV. Fortunately, those desires came true last year when D’Onofrio’s Kingpin and Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock both made appearances in Spider-Man: No Way Home during the same week.
Many Marvel fans are anticipating Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin would return to the MCU as soon as possible given that Echo is currently filming in and around Atlanta. These expectations increased on Saturday when D’Onofrio posted a photo from the gym on social media, sparking rumors that he would be getting in shape to reprise his role as the beloved Marvel villain.

“63 but who counts,” the actor said in his tweet.
Since the start of Echo’s production in late April, D’Onofrio has maintained to wear his beard in all of his tweets. He frequently uploaded images and videos of himself on Twitter. Therefore, Kingpin’s involvement might not have started yet unless he has grown a beard since Maya Lopez attempted to kill him in the Hawkeye finale.

It’s Kevin Feige’s Idea To Bring The Character Back

Kevin Feige had the idea to revive the character in the series when the show was first being developed, according to Hawkeye producer Trinh Tran.
“Kevin threw out the idea that ‘What if this could be Kingpin?’ And I think all of our jaws just kind of dropping our Zoom meetings, and we’re kinda like, ‘Wait, you’re joking, right? This can’t be serious. Are you serious?” Tran said during Marvel Studios: Assembled. “This is… You really think that there’s a chance that we can actually get Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin in Daredevil in the series, as a cameo for a couple of scenes? Like, he is our big boss?’ And Kevin made a call to Vincent.”

Wilson Fisk turned out to be the Tracksuit Mafia’s covert boss, Maya Lopez’s employer, and the person who gave the order to assassinate her father, according to Alaqua Cox. Thus, Hawkeye concluded with Lopez seemingly attempting to kill Kingpin, laying the groundwork for her own Disney+ spin-off, Echo.

Daredevil and Kingpin are reportedly reuniting for the forthcoming series, which just started filming in April. This will be Cox and D’Onofrio’s first time working together for Marvel Studios. The crime boss actor has been working out to get into Kingpin’s condition amid reports of his impending Marvel comeback.

D’Onofrio and Cox still have about three more months to head to the Echo set to shoot their parts if the projected filming window turns out to be accurate. D’Onofrio might appear in both flashbacks and the present because of the history that Echo and Kingpin have together. This could help to explain how Daredevil fits into the tale as he once more faces Wilson Fisk’s criminal organization. Wilson Fisk and Matt Murdock’s futures in the MCU appear promising given that Daredevil may be returning to Disney+. But before that, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which debuts on August 17, is where Charlie Cox’s blind protagonist might make his subsequent appearance.
