Vincent D’Onofrio Has Pitched A Kingpin Episode Of What If…?, And His Idea Is Giving Me Chills

Film

For a few years, the future of Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk a.k.a. Kingpin was up in the air… but now, it feels limitless. Three years after the cancellation of the Netflix series Daredevil in 2018, the actor returned to the role in with a surprise appearance in 2021’s Hawkeye, and he most recently reprised the part in the Disney+ limited series Echo. We’ll next get to see him square off with Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock in the series Daredevil: Born Again, but what will MCU fans get to see after that? If D’Onofrio has his druthers, one project would be an episode of What If…? where he gets to go to super dark places with the character.

During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Vincent D’Onofrio shared his vision for a “What If…?” story – which is to say a standalone narrative about a non-canon version of Wilson Fisk from an alternate universe. Instead of the tale featuring him sparring with a character outside of those typically associated with Kingpin (Daredevil, Elektra, Spider-Man, etc.), he would love to see a more realistic take where there are no superheroes to get in Fisk’s way. He explains,

I would love to do, like a, What If…? kind of Fisk story. I would just like to explore him in a, outside of the usual teaming up of villain and superhero. I’d like to see a truly more realistic version, kind of like what they did with the Joker … A more interior approach and you know, 10 times darker than anything we’ve done with him before. You know, exploring that would be really interesting.
