If you didn’t know, and I’m sure you know by now, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin is in the main continuity of the MCU! One thing fans wanted to know is if the Kingpin in the MCU was the same character from Netflix’s Daredevil or a variant? Vincent D’Onofrio answers this question in a recent interview.
Here’s what Vincent D’Onofrio told Collider:
I think it’s definitely a continuation, like there’s no difference to me. There’s the physical strength that’s different. The fact that he can take more violent abuse, physical abuse is different, but it’s very clear with the writers and the producers and the directors that I’m continuing the same man that was in the series a few years ago, in Daredevil. His emotional life, he operates through the pain of his childhood. That’s how he operates and he still does. And it doesn’t matter whether he is enjoying himself or if he’s having a tough time in life, whatever’s going on in any scene. It’s always coming through events that happened when he was a kid. And so that’s the same character to me.
There you go. If you was worried that it was a different Kingpin, then you can take a deep breath now. Vincent D’Onofrio did great in the Hawkeye finale and I can’t wait to see more of him in the MCU. Kingpin is here to stay!
