Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and respected superheroes in any franchise possible. When it comes to setting up and foreshadowing the plot, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that cannot shy away from. Peter Parker is a hero who is loved by everyone.

Within the MCU, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker’s story has been developed in a manner that is adorned by everyone alike. The entire trilogy given to him pieces together a singular origin story, one that helps Peter Parker stand up for himself. His growth was throughout the entire cinematic universe. However, there may have been a key setup that could have been missed. One that set Kingpin up as a potential villain for the fourth Spider-Man movie.

Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home Share an Interesting Detail

Hawkeye was one series that lit up Christmas with just how wonderful it was. Although not many could resonate with it, the return of Wilson Fisk was one that was much hyped by everyone. There was one scene in particular, a fight sequence, that took place in Rockefeller Centre. Surprisingly enough, the same setup was used in another film.

Spider-Man: No Way Home was a film that was filled with a roller coaster of emotions. From the wondrous world-building to the teary-eyed ending, it was one spectacle after another. However, the ending sequence showed off Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man’s newest suit. One thing that both Hawkeye and the film shared was the Rockefeller Centre as Peter swung over it in a final sequence, showing off his lifestyle as a forgotten man free to be the man in the mask. This may have been more than just a coincidence though, since Hawkeye brought a character back that is directly connected to Spider-Man, Wilson Fisk’s Kingpin.

Kingpin Might be a Bigger Villain Than Anticipated at First

Kingpin of the Comics is no stranger to going up against Spider-Man. So much so that the friendly neighborhood webslinger even has a sweet little nickname for his foe, ‘Willy.’ Not only is Wilson Fisk fully back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he also could be a big part of the fourth Spider-Man movie. Seeing how both of the projects shared the setting, it could very well bring into focus the connection that both these characters have.

Not only would it make a lot of fans happy, but it would also satisfy rumors and wishes of the fans to see at least one interaction between Daredevil and Spider-Man. Kingpin could be Peter Parker’s big foe, one that he will have to deal with while coming to terms with his unfortunate reality.
