Photo: Meet Daredevil's Crime Kingpin

Law and order is far from Vincent D’Onofrio‘s mind as he tackles the role of Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin on Marvel’s Daredevil — as evidenced by these first image from the upcoming Netflix series.

The shadowy figure behind organized crime in Hell’s Kitchen, Wilson Fisk has one mission in mind: to save his territory by any means necessary. This puts him at odds with the vigilante alter-ego of lawyer Matt Murdock (played by Charlie Cox), who sees (so to speak) the criminal element as the root of the city’s problems. Intelligent, complex and physically imposing, Fisk is the perfect foil for Daredevil, and the two will collide dramatically.

Check out the first photo below (click to zoom) and weigh in on D’Onofrio’s perfect casting. Marvel’s Daredevil drops 13 episodes on Friday, April 10.

    He’ll do an awesome job. Super excited.

  2. Tony Lang says:

    I’m happily surprised to see how they managed to make him physically fit the part. Now for that voice… Here’s to hoping he’ll be dubbed by Maurice Lamarche again… Their combined Orson Welles was amazing.

  3. Tran says:

    Vincent D’Onofrio is a perfect role as Kingpin.

  4. Joey says:

    One word: Perfection.

  5. Heathers says:

    He looks terrible, like a heart attack waiting to happen. Notice how male actors can get fat and ugly, and still get parts.

    • HAP says:

      A few observations. His first listed credit goes back to 1983. He still holds the record for greatest weight gain by an actor when he gained 70 pounds for a role in Full Metal Jacket(1986). His weight has fluctuated over the years. He did not look this heavy in The Judge(2014). That said, he is 55 years old.

    • Isobel says:

      Kingpin is supposed to be fat, and he’s a great actor who cares what he looks like

    • tabularasalocke says:

      Kingpin is supposed to look that way. He clearly gained weight for the role, since it was probably a requirement to play Kingpin.

    Love this guy!

  7. Calling it right now…. Vincent D’Onofrio Kingpin, will be the first MCU character to get a acting nomination
