Vincent D’Onofrio is the latest celebrity to receive the fan imagined treatment as someone has imagined the Daredevil actor as Superman and DC Villain Lex Luthor.
17-year-old Australian digital artist Subi Özil likes to create fan imagined depictions of DC and Marvel characters. His work includes Brendan Thwaites’s Robin as Nightwing, a Hulk/Thor mash-up and several posters. This time around he imagined how Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio could look like as Superman antagonist Lex Luthor. He’s even holding a piece of green kryptonite!

As much as we would want this to happen in real life, it doesn’t seem like we’ll actually get it. On one hand, Vincent D’Onofrio’s future as Daredevil villain Kingpin is up in the air. After the show’s cancellation, the series’ future is still unknown mainly because Marvel has yet to announce what the franchise’s next step is. While we may see a Daredevil series on Disney+, the new streaming services has yet to be launched. But whether it’s with the same cast, it’s anybody’s guess at the moment. Also, the DCEU already has its own Lex Luthor in Jesse Eisenberg and the Arrowverse has Jon Cryer playing the Superman big bad. But don’t get us wrong. Vincent D’Onofrio would make an awesome Lex Luthor after he showed us his chops as Wilson Fisk and we would love to see him go head to head with Superman.
In the meantime, you can catch Vincent D’Onofrio on Netflix. Here’s the synopsis for Daredevil season 3:
Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero.
Daredevil season 3 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Joanne Whalley, Jay Ali, Wilson Bethel, Stephen Rider, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.
Daredevil is now available on Netflix.
Here’s What We Learned On The Set Of DC’s ‘Shazam!’ Movie
Shazam! I’m writing that because I’ve had to use all the powers of an ancient Egyptian wizard to contain my excitement and prevent me from telling you the things I’m about to tell you at this moment. Back in April, I got the invitation of a lifetime. Warner Brothers, New Line and DC began sending out invitations to the set of the Shazam! movie.
I was lucky enough to be one of the few journalists invited to the set of Shazam! and I have to say I saw some pretty fantastical things. This was Heroic Hollywood’s second set visit and my first time ever visiting a movie set, so as a movie fan, I was excited, and as a DC Comics fan, I was screaming internally.
This was my first time visiting Toronto and it came with such a cool stipulation. The other journalists and I arrived in Toronto on Wednesday, April 17, 2018. We got to enjoy the beautiful city on our first night there and then on Thursday morning, we were up bright and early to visit the set of the film.
It was cold day in Toronto and me and a bunch of other journalists made our way to Pinewood Studios to visit the set of the Shazam! movie. We were directed into this office where they showed us this terrific sizzle reel and told us almost everything about the movie. Now that the embargo has officially lifted, I can finally tell you almost everything we learned on set of Shazam.
There’s a bunch of cool things about Shazam! that you guys have yet to discover and I’m excited to dissect it for you in the following slideshow. Hit next as I reveal almost everything about my Heroic mission to the Shazam! set.
