Vincent D’Onofrio shared a gym photo amidst rumors of his return as Kingpin in a new Daredevil series.
December was quite an exciting month for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Daredevil. In that month alone, we saw the return of both Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk AKA Kingpin in Hawkeye, and Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Since then, fans have been clamoring for their return in another MCU project.
In particular, people have been clamoring for a revival of the Daredevil series ever since Netflix canceled it after three seasons in 2018. The series was a fan-favorite, and was acclaimed for its take on the beloved characters. Seeing him step back into his role as Kingpin was certainly a highlight for fans, even if some were disappointed in his portrayal in the Hawkeye finale.
Recently, it was reported that a new Daredevil series was in the works for Disney Plus, with Charlie Cox expected to reprise his role in the show. This led to some also speculating about the return of Kingpin too. Well, although nothing official from Marvel Studios has been announced, Vincent D’Onofrio shared the following gym photo, which only adds more fuel to the fire regarding his rumored return:

Vincent D’Onofrio is a working character actor, so him going to the gym can be for anything.

Either way, a Daredevil series without him would feel wrong, especially given how acclaimed his portrayal was in the original Netflix series.
