Vincent D'Onofrio Cast as Kingpin Wilson Fisk in Daredevil Netflix Series

Posted by Anthony Mango Tuesday, June 10, 2014
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a pretty great track record with casting decisions, and today's announcement has continued that trend. Vincent D'Onofrio has been cast as the Kingpin of crime himself, Wilson Fisk, in the new Daredevil series!

Kingpin Vincent D'Onofrio Daredevil Wilson Fisk

You may recognize D'Onofrio from Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Men in Black. He also has a role in the upcoming Jurassic World film.

This is absolutely perfect casting in my mind. Too many people, in their fan casts for the role, just go with someone who is overweight, which is not actually central to Kingpin's character. Honestly, could you really see John Goodman playing the role? Goodman is awesome, but he couldn't pull off the physicality of it. D'Onofrio can make for quite an intimidating presence, and you can't deny the resemblance in the picture above.

It blows my mind that I never thought of this before, as it seems like such an obvious decision. Kudos, Marvel!

What do you think of Vincent D'Onofrio playing Kingpin?
