Kingpin will be back, but Vincent D'Onofrio isn't saying when.
The actor, who portrays mobster Wilson Fisk in the hit Netflix series Daredevil, recently had a chance to discuss all things Marvel while speaking with LRM at the Toronto International Film Festival - and he had nothing but praise for those he works with.
"Marvel, the company, and especially Jeff Loeb, who runs Marvel Television, he's a clever dude. All those people over there are pretty clever and they love talent. There's no giant commitment for me at Daredevil. Like I didn't have to sign my life away at all. When Jeff tells me there's something coming up and if I'm available, I'll be there. And because it's written so well, I'm going to show up. I'm going to do everything I can because the writing is so good. And then there's a company like Netflix and they're not pressuring you either. They just want good material, good content. They give you money to make good content, so they're not pressuring actors to sign their life away either.... I think that there's this common ground where they say, 'Look, if the material is good are you going to show up?' and I said, 'Definitely'."
D'Onofrio was then asked when fans could expect to see the Kingpin back on the streets.
"That I can't answer. I do know, but I can't answer... so take that how you will. Jeff and Charlie (Cox) and Netflix love Kingpin, and so, Kingpin is good for Marvel's television stuff and I think they agree."
The character was defeated at the hands of Daredevil in the Season 1 finale. Come Season 2, it is revealed that Fisk is serving time on Ryker's Island, but is in the midst of rebuilding his empire and has taken complete control of the prison.
So, will Fisk somehow escape Ryker's Island? Only time will tell.
Either way, we can't wait for the Kingpin to return!
