Vincent D’Onofrio Gets Real About Kingpin Being In The Middle Of Sony And Marvel’s Battle For Characters


In December 2021, three years after Netflix cancelled the Daredevil TV show, and just a few days after Charlie Cox’s cameo appearance at Matt Murdock was first seen by there public in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Vincent D’Onofrio reprised Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in the Hawkeye finale. Then D’Onofrio returned to the role earlier this year for Echo, and next, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans with a Disney+ subscription can look forward to him and Cox finally reuniting onscreen as members of the Daredevil: Born Again cast. And yet, it appears that Kingpin being in the middle of Sony and Marvel’s battle for characters has prevented D’Onofrio from participating in another Marvel Studios project.

Among the things we know about Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, another one of the upcoming Marvel TV shows, is that it explores an alternate take on the MCU Peter Parker’s origin story where he’s mentored by Norman Osborn instead of Tony Stark. Charlie Cox will reprise Daredevil in the animated series, and villains like Doctor Octopus, Scorpion, Chameleon and Rhino are also confirmed to appear. However, when D’Onofrio was asked at Fan Expo Boston (via Comicbook) about if he’ll voice Kingpin in the show, he answered:

I’m going to transparently say this: You know the whole Marvel-Sony thing, right? So there are characters — Marvel characters invented by Marvel, written by Marvel — that are caught in between Marvel and Sony. And so it takes a long time for them to figure out who is doing what.
