“I mean there’s only one”: Daredevil Star Vincent D’Onofrio Claims His Kingpin Fighting Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is Inevitable, Teases Spider-Man 4 Will Be Gritty and Grounded

Daredevil Star Vincent D’Onofrio Claims His Kingpin Fighting Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

Ever since Drew Goddard’s adaptation of Marvel’s Daredevil character in 2015 saw its fourth season put in the bin, the privilege of seeing Vincent D’Onofrio in the MCU has been reduced to just mentions and special appearances. However, it surely does send a shiver down the spines of MCU fans every time D’Onofrio puts on his Kingpin face.

As of today, the character will finally be returning to…not the big screens, but to your laptop and TV screens in the new reboot of Daredevil titled Daredevil: Born Again. While the fact that D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will indeed be returning as the main villain in Born Again has been put to bed, the actor himself claims that he might actually make his MCU debut too!

Vincent D’Onofrio Hints At Kingpin Debut In The MCU

The Kingpin is one of the most amazing characters in Marvel history, showcasing that no matter how evil a villain is, there’s a caring man inside that person. So it would only make sense that such a character is going to see the live-action limelight in the MCU timeline sooner or later.

Vincent D’Onofrio’s portrayal of the massive villain has been applauded over and over again by critics and fans alike, and him looking the part definitely helps.

While it did make MCU fans quite envious to see the character as the main antagonist in Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, they’ll be happy to have heard the news of the villain’s return in the MCU.

It was only obvious that Kevin Feige would want him back as a character, let alone as the main villain, in the upcoming reboot of Daredevil for Disney+, Daredevil: Born Again. But while fans have been going crazy over when they can possibly get to watch the new TV series, D’Onofrio has hinted that he’ll straight-up debut in an MCU movie too!

The question of the possibility of a scenario in which Kingpin goes head-on against Spider-Man came up during a Q&A attended by the Full Metal Jacket star at Salt Lake FanX 2022 earlier this year. Vincent D’Onofrio had this to say-

“I mean there’s only one, really, end goal, and I think somebody just said who that would be.”

These comments will surely boost the rumors regarding the possibility of D’Onofrio’s Kingpin being the main antagonist in the upcoming Spider-Man 4 movie. If he does, it’s surely going to get gritty and dark in here!

There have been lots of thoughts and doubts looming over the minds of fans about Born Again, with many wondering if it will be able to live up to the standard that the Netflix version of Drew Goddard’s Daredevil had benchmarked last decade.

But as Vincent D’Onofrio plans on reprising his role in the reboot, fans now at least have half the assurance that it will be worth the wait and hype. To help entice the crowd during the Q&A panel at Salt Lake FanX, the 63-year-old actor shared this one detail about the upcoming TV series-

“I will say though, see you guys have no idea what you’re in store for with Born Again. And, I know a little bit more than you guys, and all I can say is, during that next series you’re not going to be thinking about anything but the next episode.”

Daredevil: Born Again is set to release somewhere around the Spring of 2024. And with D’Onofrio on the train to battle Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock once again, it’s bound to be a good time.
