Hawkeye ‘s ending brought Vincent D’Onofrio back into the role of Kingpin , making him officially debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe .
The fate of the boss, however, is not clear: Maya Lopez shot him to avenge the death of his father, and we do not know if Fisk survived. In the comics, the latter actually manages to survive after Maya shoots him in the face, but temporarily loses his sight.
Well, D’Onofrio was interviewed by the Sarah O’Connell Show , who asked him if he signed for other Marvel Studios productions in 2022: the actor replied no, but it is clear that he hopes to return.
I’ve been through this before with Daredevil . It’s very clear to them that I really want to play this part, keep playing it. You know, I really hope to continue. I just started having fun.
The question was referring to Marvel Studios projects for 2022, but it’s obvious that D’Onofrio may have signed up for other productions due out in 2023 onwards. It’s almost a given that Kingpin will appear in Echo , but the series probably won’t debut later this year.
