Vincent D’Onofrio Says Kingpin Will “Blow Fans Away” In DAREDEVIL Season 33 min read
Vinncent D’Onofrio opens up about his role as Wilson Fisk in the upcoming third season of Daredevil of what to expect from his character.
Who doesn’t like the Kingpin of the New York City’s criminal underworld from Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil ? Well its very hard to not like D’Onofrio ‘s performance as he adds a new texture to the character which can be related to. Why he does what he does ? On a personal note , I consider his character to be one of the prime reasons of Daredevil Season 1 being such a masterpiece. Also his portrayal of Wilson Fisk is the only character from comic book background , to make it to my greatest TV performance list (The top of which is occupied by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White from Breaking Bad) . Now , we all know , the season 3 for Daredevil is adapting the “Born again” storyline. That is in itself an indication for the fans of how much importance the character Wilson Fisk holds in this season.
Since Season 2 was a disappointment even after adding a cool character like Punisher , everyone seems to question how good will this season hold compared to the first one . Collider had the opportunity to ask this fan-favorite question to Vincent D’Onofrio via a 1-on-1 phone interview and in response , he said “It’s hard to top the first season, with Steven DeKnight’s writing, but Erik Oleson [the new showrunner] is a very good writer. I’ve shot some pretty cool scenes, so far. It’s different, but it’s very Fisk. It’s still very emotional. The character is evolving. His whole deal is based on emotion, so we’re taking him down that role further.” Unfortunately, D’Onofrio couldn’t talk too much about the new season and how prison might have changed Fisk, but he did say that “there are new focuses and new goals” for the character. “That’s all I can say,” he reasoned. “If it was up to me, I would go on and on and on about it because it’s so interesting, but it’s so important to them, for us to keep our mouths shut.”
But , he was able to say one tiny bit about Season 3 which is sure to hype all fans up. “I can only say that we’re doing things that are just going to blow the fans away,” D’Onofrio teased. “We’ve already shot some things that are just going to be neat for the fans. There’s some awesome things that are very much in the history of Fisk and Daredevil, that people have been waiting for. We’ve already put some of that stuff in the can, and there’s a lot more to do. I think they’re gonna be very happy.”
Though we don’t have a fixed date on when we could get our hands on the third season except that it will be available in Netflix , somewhere in 2018.
