Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Vincent D’Onofrio has joined “Marvel’s Daredevil,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Best known for his critically-lauded work in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Men in Black, “Full Metal Jacket” and “Homicide,”  D’Onofrio will play Wilson Fisk, a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil.

D’Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced as Matt Murdock, in the exciting cast of “Marvel’s Daredevil.”

“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."

“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

it would be too easy to call him kingpin, much more fun to hint at it now and again,

and for anyone calling the kingpin fat, I invite you to look at all versions, including the original, while large, the Kingpin was always like a brick wall, rather than tub of lard

Not once is he refered to as "Kingpin". And I see that he's Caucasian (white) again. That should confuse people who have only Watched the daredevil movie and are not familiar With the comics.

Is it too much to hope for that they do him up biggie style like the Hulk, with awesome custom tailored suits? (Paving the way for Grey Hulk/Mr. Fixit as his hired muscle?) I don't really want another "normal" Kingpin, I want the massive superhuman version who can beat up the Thing. Prosthetics could be cool, but digital is probably better.

D'Onofrio had previously played a Marvel hero - well, sort of (if you've seen the movie, you know what I mean). He played one my favorite takes on Thor (!), in the 1987 movie "Adventures in Babysitting". Back then he really looked the part!

didn't we already got a kingpin? How about a different villain from daredevil?

Wonder if his size will be scaled down or wear a fat suit like Vinnie Jones did for Juggernaut in X3

@cobraking7 

hey they did bullseye too, but id still love to see a more crazy take on the character, ''if Castle was a tree, what kind of tree would he be'' - bullseye vs punisher, in the middle of a torture scene

@cobraking7 the daredevil movie was a flop such a flop in fact that marvel went almost broke trying to advertise how good the movie was when the comic readers and loyal fans knew better fans knew that movie was trash put out by hollywood with little to no marvel say so in the making of the films and thanks to the aweful acting by ben afflek and m. clark duncan marvel saw that it needed to have a hand in any movie made with there comic books as a theme

@Agent_DVDWell he is already pretty fat as is so why even bother with a fat suit or even cgi after all they never really ever follow the comics 100% so maybe in this version he does not need to be so top heavy  personally I prefer the more fat as it was always funny to see Fisk fight with people like Blade and Spidey and still be able to move so quick

@tdlotslv Yeah and that's a reason for  you to be whining so much? If you hate the movies so much then not watching them would be your best friend.

@CapertheFox @tdlotslv Sorry friend but you obviously do not comprehend much otherwise you would have clearly seen and read that I was neither whining nor complaining or even professing any sort of hate any thing Marvel perhaps you ought to practice the art of thinking first then decide whether or not if you wish to comment instead of being an ass :)
