Vincent D’Onofrio Sides With Hawkeye Fans on Kingpin’s MCU Future

Actor Vincent D’Onofrio says he hopes to keep playing Wilson Fisk in future Marvel Cinematic Universe projects following his appearance in Hawkeye.

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Episode 6 of Hawkeye, “So This Is Christmas?” now streaming on Disney+.

Shortly after returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Disney+’s Hawkeye, the character seemingly met his end in the finale episode. There is still demand for the character and star Vincent D’Onofrio said he wants to keep playing the Kingpin just as much as the fans want him to.

“I hope he didn’t die,” he said in an interview with Deadline. “I’m with the fans, I want to keep playing this part. My hope is that we continue.”

Returning to the role was not something D’Onofrio saw coming. “I wasn’t expecting it,” he said. “I didn’t know that Daredevil was going to end when it did, I thought it was going to continue for a few more years. There was a lot to explore there, there were many facets of my character to explore.” Though Netflix’s Daredevil may have ended, D’Onofrio and co-star Charlie Cox have remained friends. D’Onofrio recently revealed that he and Cox both called each other after discovering they were both set to reprise their respective roles as Matt Murdock and Kinpin.

Since “So This is Christmas?” was released, there have been questions surrounding if Hawkeye‘s iteration of the Kingpin is the same as Daredevil‘s, considering Fisk displayed physical strength that went from dangerous to outright superhuman. However, D’Onofrio has confirmed that he is indeed playing the same character. “The people I play are based on real emotions and real life,” he said, discussing his approach to Kingpin. “And I try to bring the events of their pasts in the now. Kingpin is like that in Hawkeye. He has a lot more physical strength and can take physical abuse, but grounded in this emotional world. And he does everything through that emotional world: He’s like a child and a monster simultaneously. Everything that he does is based on events of his childhood.”

Hawkeye‘s finale raised many questions, mainly concerning Fisk’s fate following his encounter with Maya, as well as the S.H.I.E.L.D.-issued Rolex that once belonged to Laura Barton. With Marvel Studios President/Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige seemingly interested in bringing more of the Marvel Netflix show elements into the MCU, it’s entirely possible that fans haven’t seen the last of the Kingpin of Crime.

All episodes of Hawkeye are available to stream on Disney+.
