Vincent D’Onofrio Talks Kingpin Appearing in Future Spider-Man Movies

There is NO chance for fans to see the Kingpin from Netflix’s Daredevil series show up in a future Tom Holland Spider-Man movie. Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the burly crime lord in the series, confirmed this via his Twitter account, according to sources at Comic Book Movie.

When asked if Wilson Fisk would appear at some point in a Spider-Man movie, D’Onofrio tweeted this:

“That I doubt. Seems to be so many characters in the film uni to service. The films are already jam packed.”

Which is a shame because D’Onofrio is such great casting.

The character of the Kingpin first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #50-52 way back in July of 1967. He was created by Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr., who modeled the crime lord after the physical appearance of legendary Hollywood character actor Sydney Greenstreet.

Initially, Kingpin was a typical mob boss who used crazy contraptions to wreak havoc on Spider-Man. Writer and artists Frank Miller gave the character a make-over during his time on Daredevil in the 1980s. Miller’s Kingpin became a calculating crime lord always one step ahead of his opponents.

D’Onofrio also tweeted that he knows when the Kingpin will be back, but didn’t let the cat out of the bag. It could be on the next season of Daredevil or the upcoming new series The Defenders.

The Kingpin was previously played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in Ben Affleck’s Daredevil movie, and voiced by Roscoe Lee Brown on the 1990’s Fox animated series, Spider-Man.
