So there are a lot of people who think that he will return and the actor Vincent D’Onofrio knows exactly what stories they should tell in Marvel studios.
“I can only say that I hope to continue playing the Kingpin because I really like this character. From my entire career, I can probably say there are three or four that I would love to repeat because somehow I feel like there is no exploration. Wilson Fisk is one of those. He is a very particular human being and I think there are many uses for him in the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe. “
In a world full of superheroes, this is a very human character who rises to their level.
“Ayelet Zurer, who played Vanessa, is an incredible actress. During our process in season three, there was something there that we always wanted to get right. It was that this monster can be in life and that someone can love the monster. It was very important to get our way, so for me, there is so much more we can do with that. Show this guy as a human being and deal with the things that we all deal with while living in that higher world. I think there is a lot to do there if someone has the intention of doing it.
In the comics, Maya lopez shot Kingpin when he learns that he was the real responsible for the death of his father. As a result he goes blind and loses his criminal empire to one of his employees, Samuel Silke who works with Richard, Fisk’s son.
