Vincent D’Onofrio aka Daredevil’s Kingpin just confirmed he will be stepping into the shoes of the villain once again.
According to LMR, the 57 year-old actor who put on a stellar performance for his portrayal of Kingpin in Netflix’s Daredevil series will be back. Here’s what he had to say:
Marvel, the company, and especially Jeff Loeb, who runs Marvel Television, he’s a clever dude. All those people over there are pretty clever and they love talent. There’s no giant commitment for me at Daredevil. Like I didn’t have to sign my life away at all. When Jeff tells me there’s something coming up and if I’m available, I’ll be there. And because it’s written so well, I’m going to show up. I’m going to do everything I can because the writing is so good. And then there’s a company like Netflix and they’re not pressuring you either. They just want good material, good content. They give you money to make good content, so they’re not pressuring actors to sign their life away either…. I think that there’s this common ground where they say, ‘Look, if the material is good are you going to show up?’ and I said, ‘Definitely’.
Still no word yet on when Kingpin will return. The third season of Daredevil is still a ways off, so it’s likely official news of his much anticipated return will happen around then. Nonetheless, it’s great to know D’Onofrio will still have a part to play, whether large or small, it future seasons of Dardevil. Heck, he could also make cameos in other Marvel Netflix shows!
