Following the good reviews he received for playing Wilson Fisk in Daredevil, would Vincent D’Onofrio finally be back in the Netflix series?
As the Kingpin, the 57-year-old New York-born actor got good words from fans. Therefore, the show’s followers have reportedly been asking if the filthy businessman, who is one of the arch enemies of the show’s main protagonist, is coming back soon.
The superhero series was renewed for a third season in July last year. Meanwhile, the second season ended on March 18.
The Kingpin will Surely Return
D’Onofrio disclosed that his character in Daredevil is definitely coming back. He is just unsure, though, when it would be.
“He will, eventually. Honestly, I wish I knew ‘cause I could plan my year better,” he told Collider. “I know he will come back, I just don’t know when. I can’t wait to find out. I’m totally into the Marvel stuff, big time. I want to do Marvel, all the time,” he confessed. “I love it so much ‘cause they’re so creative over there.”
The fact that he loves everything about Marvel “to death,” he hinted that he is more than willing to unleash his inner Wilson Fisk anew in Daredevil season 3.
In September, the actor already made the confirmation of his return. In an interview with LRM then, he suggested in his responses that his comeback is already definite. However, he had no idea yet on what particular Kingpin story will be tackled in the new episodes.
“That I can’t answer. I do know, but I can’t answer… so take that how you will,” he said. “Jeff and Charlie (Cox) and Netflix love Kingpin, and so, Kingpin is good for Marvel’s television stuff and I think they agree.”
Daredevil Season 3 Release Date
When it comes to the much-awaited release date of the superhero series, Deborah Ann Wall debunked previous reports. She dished to Seat4f a few months ago that the show would not be out by March this year.
While she did not cite a specific date, the actress noted that Daredevil is “coming soon.”
