The captivating portrayal of D’Onofrio as Kingpin from Netflix’s Daredevil series was highly praised by critics, and the actor reprising the role for a potential MCU film is a welcomed piece of good news for many fans. Given that Spider-Man 3 is leaning towards multiverse territory, as well as the news of the Daredevil rights reverting back to Marvel Studios next month, it seems that this is the perfect time for the actor to return as Wilson Fisk.
While answering a poll from Fandom about potential additions to Spider-Man 3, Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio responded by referencing a famous line from Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series, “when I was a boy.” This tweet very much suggests that the actor wants to reprise his role as the iconic villain for the third installment of the Spider-Man franchise:

This isn’t the first time that Vincent D’Onofrio shared a comment about potentially joining the MCU since the Daredevil actor previously suggested that “anything can happen” for the character moving forward. And now, this new remark from the veteran actor is more proof that he is still interested in reprising the iconic role for the monumental franchise once again.
