Vincent D’Onofrio Reveals What He’d Like To Explore Next As Kingpin In The MCU

After making an appearance as Wilson Fisk in three seasons of the Netflix series Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio has finally returned to the MCU. Kingpin then ended up appearing as the big villain in Disney+’s recently concluded Hawkeye, but only showed up in the finale, along with a still photo used in another. Due to that, many fans believe that there’s plenty more of the character yet to be seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper—and one of those that believe so is D’Onofrio himself.

Talking about the future possibilities on the latest episode of ComicBook Nation, D’Onofrio revealed that Kingpin is one of the few characters he has played in his whole career that he has a feeling he can return to and explore more.

“I can only say I hope I get to keep playing Wilson Fisk because I’m very into this character. Out of my entire career, I can probably say they are maybe three or four that I would love to repeat because somehow I just feel like there was no exploration,” the actor says. “Wilson Fisk is one of those. He’s a very particular human being and I think there are many uses of him in the MCU.”

He also added that Wilson Fisk is a human character in a world full of powerful superheroes, and this should be something Marvel should think about exploring in future films and shows.

“Ayelet Zurer, who played Vanessa, she’s an amazing actress. During our process in the third season, there was something there we were always wanting to get right. That was that this monster can be in life and that somebody can love the monster,” he adds. “That was so important to get away with, so with me, there’s a lot more we can do with that; to show this guy as a human being and dealing with stuff we all deal with living in that heightened world. I think there’s a lot to do there if anybody had the mind to do so.”

Hawkeye is now streaming on Disney+ while three seasons of Daredevil are streaming on Netflix.
