Vincent D’Onofrio was impressive as Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin, the main villain of Daredevil Season 1, and in his appearances in Season 2, but that doesn’t mean he needs to appear in every Marvel project with characters from New York. (Which is, like, all of them.)
Responding to questions as to whether he would be in Spider-Man: Homecoming or The Defenders, D’Onofrio had curt answers. “No” and “no.”
He offered a little bit of context as to why Kingpin shouldn’t be in either of those films in another tweet.
It’s more likely that D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk will appear again in Daredevil Season 3.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be in theaters on July 7, 2017. And The Defenders will release on Netflix sometime in late 2017.
