Vincent D’Onofrio tweeted a message to fans of Daredevil‘s arrival on Disney Plus.
Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige didn’t work on Daredevil. Nevertheless, many consider the cancelled series among Marvel’s best. Jeph Loeb originally produced Daredevil for Netflix with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.
It’s obvious that Daredevil made a big impact on many fans and critics. Rotten Tomatoes gave an approval rating of 99% for Season One. Season Two got 81% and Season Three with 97%.
Netflix pulled the plug on Daredevil in 2018. It shocked everyone. Daredevil only lasted three amazing seasons. Netflix ended all the Marvel-related programs one by one. The reason was obvious: Disney Plus.
Daredevil’s Vincent D’Onofrio Posts Message About Disney Plus Return
By March 16, less than a month after the show’s removal from Netflix, they showed up on Disney Plus.
Furthermore, Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox returned to their roles. Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin in Disney Plus’ Hawkeye. Charlie Cox returned as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Suddenly, they entered the MCU under Feige’s supervision.
For the first time since Disney Plus picked up Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio said on Twitter:
It’s so wonderful to hear and see everyone experiencing Daredevil @Marvel on @disneyplus
There are so many new fans of that series now and the original fans are still watching. Thanks to you all. Truly. I speak for Charlie Cox as well, it was a delight to make.
Vincent D’Onofrio’s performance in Daredevil was truly incredible. Even though he was the main villain of the show, you do get to sympathize with his character. His return to the role of Kingpin in Hawkeye was fun and his portrayal felt like a proper extension of his character.

Furthermore, it’s good news that we learn that he does return in the new Hawkeye spin-off Echo. The Kingpin returns with Cox’s Daredevil in Echo starring Alaqua Cox. We also have reported before that Charlie Cox will also return on Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk.
Moreover, a Daredevil is also in the works. No reports as of yet on how Disney Plus will approach it. We’ve reported before that Disney is interested in making the show R-Rated. After all, Daredevil was known for mature themes and hardcore action. Also, we don’t know if Marvel will follow through with the story lines left by the original Netflix series.
Marvel Studios hasn’t really acknowledged if that series is canon or not within the MCU timeline.
In any case, we are excited to see Kingpin and Daredevil back in the MCU, and all in one network together on Disney Plus.
