The Kingpin made a cameo later in the Disney+ series Hawkeye, proving that he would be a prominent player in the MCU. This coincides with Matt Murdock’s appearance as Peter Parker’s legal counsel in Spider-Man: No Way Home. According to Marvel Comics, Kingpin was instrumental in bringing Maya Lopez/Echo to life. A similar story could be seen playing out exactly in Hawkeye’s journey, as he played a big role in Echo’s arc.

A New Theory Suggests That Kingpin Is A Skrull:

Due to their strange behaviour, practically every character in the MCU is suspected of being a Skrull. Most of these hypotheses may not even come true, as Marvel may simply be poking us in the ribs to keep us guessing and intrigued. There was even speculation that some of the non-superpowered characters in all of Spider-Man: Far From Home’s appearances were Skrulls. This notion is based on the finale of Far From Home, which revealed that Nick Fury and Maria Hill, who had key roles in the film, were Skrulls. Since then, everyone has been speculating who else in the MCU may be a Skrull. The hypothesis of Kingpin’s being a Skrull stems from hints provided by his appearance in the series. We observed Kingpin’s incredible power when he physically shattered the vehicle door with his bare hands. Not only that, but the character is acting very differently than the last time we saw him in the Netflix series. The key indication, though, comes from the last time we saw the guy, as he was ready to be shot by Maya Lopez. Some speculated that this would be his final appearance in the series, but this may not be the case. Fans are also asking why the MCU would debut such a fan-favorite character and then get him killed off right away.

Keeping the aftermath of the shooting off-screen might have a whole different connotation, and what could it be?

Keeping the aftermath of the shooting off-screen might have a very different connotation. We could have missed out on seeing Kingpin shift back into his Skrull form. This might lead to a story in which we learn that the Skrulls have already penetrated mankind. It may appear far-fetched, yet it is not an absolute impossibility. Not to mention Echo’s involvement in the Secret Invasion storyline from the comics. Though there is no word on whether she will feature in the future series based on the tale, Marvel has certain ideas that have yet to be announced. Fans should not take this hypothesis seriously because it might be simply another far-fetched idea. However, given the wide range of storylines expected to emerge, we may see some intriguing links emerge. There is speculation that Kingpin will feature in the Echo spinoff series. It would, however, be a complete surprise to see the figure appear in the Secret Invasion series’ opening sequence. Secret Invasion will be released on Disney+ on an unspecified date in early 2023.
