Daredevil‘s Vincent D’Onofrio could return as the Kingpin on Hawkeye on Disney Plus.
According to a new report, Vincent D’Onofrio finally debuts in the MCU after the cancellation of Netflix’ Daredevil.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige threw the Netflix shows beyond MCU canon; he tossed them to the multiverse.
Loki unveiled alternate timelines and unleashed variants.
Nevertheless, Feige seeks to work with some of the same actors.
Of course, this is old news to regular Geekosity readers, especially Vincent D’Onofrio.
On February 22, I scooped that:
Alongside Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio is among the actors Marvel Studios wants back.
At the time, though, negotiations hadn’t begun yet.
In addition to Hawkeye, Vincent D’Onofrio is rumored to guest on another MCU Disney Plus series, Echo.
Moreover, on April 5, I leaked that Daredevil star Charlie Cox will be on Echo.
Furthermore, Vincent D’Onofrio’s MCU appearances extend beyond streaming shows.
On December 25, 2020, I scooped that the Kingpin will be among the darker, more violent foes Spider-Man will face in his college years.
While none of these are official confirmations, they add weight to a number of rumors I’ve been breaking the past few years.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. This one is raging like the Human Torch.
People have asked how violent would the Kingpin be in the MCU.
After all, on Netflix, the Kingpin was a merciless killer, and the network didn’t flinch at his gory rage.
Obviously, Disney Plus wouldn’t expose that much carnage.

But The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney Plus proved that the channel could push PG-13 boundaries.
But the effectiveness of the Kingpin on Daredevil wasn’t about his brutality.
The soulful intensity of Vincent D’Onofrio’s portrayal defined the Kingpin.
Vincent D’Onofrio made viewers sorry for a homicidal maniac.
The Kingpin didn’t just crack bones; he broke hearts.
This was due to Vincent D’Onofrio.
Hawkeye will be released on Disney Plus in November.
Once Vincent D’Onofrio is seen again as the Kingpin, all hell will break loose on social media.
