3 min read

Veteran actor Vincent D’Onofrio, who brilliantly portrayed the formidable Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, in Netflix’s Daredevil series, is no stranger to concerns raised by fans. Lately, the actor has been fielding questions from fans about the anticipated sequel, Daredevil: Born Again, and potential alterations to the iconic character.

D’Onofrio, who played Kingpin across three seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil, helped shape a unique version of both Matt Murdock and Fisk. These renditions, currently performed by Charlie Cox and D’Onofrio, have successfully been integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). However, the latest announcements regarding Daredevil: Born Again have sparked a wave of apprehension among fans, primarily due to suspected deviations from the original series’ narrative and portrayal.

Responding to the concerns, D’Onofrio took to Twitter to address a Marvel enthusiast, giving a straightforward message of, “Patience. Patience…” Notably, this isn’t the actor’s first public comment defending the forthcoming series. He previously hinted that Daredevil: Born Again might possess a level of violence paralleling that of the Netflix original.

Yet, these assurances haven’t entirely put fans at ease. Fans’ concerns can be traced back to D’Onofrio’s contrasting representation of Kingpin in the MCU’s Hawkeye, differing from his Daredevil appearance. In this series, Kingpin displayed superhuman resilience, enduring a slew of arrows and surviving a close-range explosion. Such feats stand in opposition to the more human, albeit menacing, Wilson Fisk of the Netflix original.

Fans found the character’s portrayal in Hawkeye less intimidating than his Netflix counterpart. The original series showcased Kingpin as a ruthless antagonist, one whose mere presence could emanate palpable dread. This daunting aura was somewhat muted in his MCU debut.

Yet, grasping the context is imperative. The Hawkeye series generally took on a more upbeat tone than its Daredevil predecessor. This distinction likely influenced the more tempered rendition of Kingpin. A similar tonal shift was evident when Daredevil’s character appeared in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, where Cox delivered a less intense version.

Given this precedent, it’s plausible that the forthcoming Daredevil: Born Again will mark a return to the grittier ambiance fans are familiar with. Given the MCU’s history of adapting to different genres and tones seamlessly, it’s conceivable that the new series will offer the darkness and intensity that characterized the original Daredevil. In an interview, Cox’s stunt double, Chris Brewster, voiced his concerns over the new series. Brewster said:

“I think that, now that the MCU has taken over the character, I think they are really, really hurting it. If you watch She-Hulk, they turned Daredevil into a cartoon. It’s all animated and it looks bad.”

While fans’ concerns are valid, the legacy and dedication of actors like D’Onofrio and the track record of the MCU should provide some solace. Echoing the timeless saying and D’Onofrio’s words, one must remember that patience is a virtue. It’s a waiting game to see if Daredevil: Born Again will indeed resonate with the expectations and hopes of its ardent fans.
