Insiders confirm that the companies discussed the characters meeting.
On November 26, 2020, I leaked the Kingpin will appear in Spider-Man’s college trilogy.
Furthermore, Marvel Studios plans to include Daredevil in the story.
Although best known as Daredevil’s arch enemy because of the Ben Affleck movie and later the Charlie Cox Netflix program, the Kingpin actually debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man No. 50 in 1967.
Writer/artist Frank Miller who made the Kingpin an integral part of Daredevil’s life in his legendary ’80s run on the Man Without Fear.
Moreover, Miller resurrected the Punisher in the same period.

Coincidentally, like the Kingpin, the Punisher’s roots are also in Spider-Man comic books.
Writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru co-created the Punisher.
He first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man No. 129 in 1974.
The article added that:
Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland actually helped each other with their Marvel auditions, so there is real personal history between the actors and their connection to these characters. That certainly would help highlight the deep history between The Punisher and Spider-Man.
Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland also co-starred in 2017’s Pilgrimage.
Spider-Man has never met either the Kingpin or the Punisher in live action.
Peter Parker’s college adventures journey into darker areas.
After all, he’s becoming an adult.
Reality rips away the innocence of high school and adolescence.
One by one, the bad guys are tougher, meaner: the Kingpin. Venom. Norman Osborn.
Consequently, Spider-Man’s allies have rougher edges.
The Punisher makes sense when Spider-Man enters the criminal underworld with Daredevil.
