When the news came out than Vincent D’Onofrio was cast as Daredevil’s arch-enemy, Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin), my response was, of course! Netflix has released the first photo of D’Onofrio in character and it looks pretty much as I’d imagined. Check it out after the jump.
Netflix will release Daredevil on April 10th at 12:01 am.
Season one of MARVEL’S DAREDEVIL will premiere with thirteen (13) one-hour episodes in 4K on April 10, 2015 at 12:01 AM PT in all territories where Netflix is available.
Synopsis: Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
The shadowy figure behind organized crime in Hell’s Kitchen, Wilson Fisk has one mission in mind: to save Hell’s Kitchen by any means necessary, no matter the cost. This immediately puts him at odds with Matt Murdock’s vigilante alter-ego, who also seeks to protect the city – but sees the criminal element as the root of the city’s problems. Central to this conflict is that Fisk truly believes he’s doing good for Hell’s Kitchen and at times may seem more of a hero to its people than Daredevil. Intelligent, complex and physically imposing, Wilson Fisk is the perfect foil for Matt Murdock, and the two will collide dramatically in Marvel’s Daredevil.
