The Kingpin is a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Kingpin name is a reference to the crime lord title in Mafia slang nomenclature. He has no superpowers, yet he is incredibly strong and significantly more durable than the average human. He does whatever it takes to maintain his stranglehold on the New York underground. Moreover, he possesses remarkable strength concealed by his extremely corpulent appearance. Let’s see who all can play the MCU’s version of Kingpin other than Vincent D’Onofrio.
Michael Chiklis: Michael Charles Chiklis is an American actor, television director and producer. For his role as Detective Vic Mackey on the FX police drama The Shield, he won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series in 2002.

Dean Norris: Dean Joseph Norris is well known for playing DEA agent Hank Schrader on the AMC series Breaking Bad. He also portrayed town councilman Big Jim on the CBS series, Under The Dome. Dean Norris matches the unique look of Wilson Fisk and the actor has the talent to pull off such a unique and likable character.
Ving Rhames: Ving Rhames is best known for his starring role as IMF Agent Luther Stickell in the Mission Impossible film series. The actor has played similar smart businessman role in the Death Race franchise. Rhames has a deep voice and matches the look of Kingpin.
