Marvel hit a homerun on Tuesday with the announcement that veteran actor Vincent D’Onofrio would be playing Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin in the new series ‘Daredevil’ from Netflix…
Marvel isn’t playing around with the new series they have set up at Netflix because just a week after announcing Charlie Cox as the star of the upcoming series ‘Daredevil’, they have now added a real heavy hitter to star as the series’ main villain.
Vincent D’Onofrio — best known for his role in ‘Law & Order’ not to mention the classic ‘Full Metal Jacket’ — will star as Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin in the upcoming series.
The Kingpin is best known as Daredevil’s arch nemesis — a huge hulking man who wields power over the criminal underworld throughout Hell’s Kitchen, which serves as Daredevil’s stomping grounds.
The 13-episode order of the new series will begin production later this year with a debut date expected in 2015.
