Vincent D’Onofrio is The Kingpin

 

Marvel announced that Edgar from Men in Black and Private Gomer Pyle (Full Metal Jacket) will play Wilson Fisk aka The Crime Lord of New York in the upcoming Man Without Fear’s internet series.

We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ in such an integral role, said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero.

A good pick to take on the role after the early Micheal Clarke Duncan. I really took interest in Hornhead before the meager movie came out even The Director’s Cut, read the first two volumes of Frank Miller’s run before he went crazy. Last read was Ed Brubaker’s The Devil Inside and Out storyline where Matt Murdock is sent to prison after his identity gets exposed which involves him and Fisk having to team-up against the inmates.

This is the one I’m most interested in seeing since Marvel Studios got the rights back from Fix more so then the others in the works like Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones which leads into The Defenders series with Doctor Strange showing up after his film debut hopefully. I don’t think Agent Carter is going to last as much I like Haley Atwell as Peggy.
