DAREDEVIL Actor Vincent D’Onofrio Says Rights to His Kingpin Character Are Caught Between Marvel and Sony

Vincenzo D’Onofrio brought the evil character Kingpin to our screens in a way that is irreplaceable and essential to the story, making him capable of transcending the changes that have occurred in film studios and the transition to new projects.

He embodies Wilson Fisk in a way that makes us excited to see what he does next and wonder how Daredevil will ultimately defeat him. But according to D’Onofrio, Kingpin is a character who is in a sort of limbo due to the rights exchange between Marvel and Sony.

Wilson Fisk has made the leap from Netflix Reckless series to the Disney+ series Hawk eye. Then she kept coming back Echoand he will come back meaner than ever Daredevil: Born Againwhich should fall next March.

Although in 2022 we learned that Daredevil himself, actor Charlie Cox will lend his voice to Daredevil in Marvel Animation Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Unfortunately, D’Onofrio joining him on the series seems far from guaranteed.

During a recent appearance at Fan Expo Boston, D’Onofrio explained:

“I’ll say this transparently: You know the whole Marvel-Sony thing, right? So there are characters – Marvel characters invented by Marvel, written by Marvel – who are caught between Marvel and Sony.

And so it takes a long time for them to understand who is doing what. I never really know where [Kingpin can show up]. My character is in that kind of situation, unlike Charlie. So I don’t know, it’s part of the deal when it comes to playing Kingpin.”

So things are up in the air for D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. It’s a real shame that the studio he originally created, and which proved itself worthy of making content with these characters, didn’t get all the rights back. Sony should consider itself completely out of the comic book genre.
