Daredevil Season 3 Brings Kingpin Into The Picture
Another Marvel release on Netflix has something interesting to offer. Daredevil recently returned with its season 3. But that’s not what all the hype is about. Daredevil season 3 features Kingpin played by Vincent D’Onofrio. And this season places all the light on him after he plans his escape from prison. Not only does he escape, but also plans a revenge on the superhero Matt Murdock played by Charlie Cox. So, season 3 brings forward a Marvel super villain in the form of Kingpin. And definitely, Marvel was hoping to spice things up in Daredevil with this latest addition to the picture.
Ever since Wilson Grant Fix suffered defeat and incarceration at the hands of Daredevil in season 1, New York expels him from the city as he is the de facto kingpin. But now that Kingpin is returning to take his meticulous revenge on secret alter ego Matt Murdock, it’s a whole twist in the story. While talking about this character who revealed his dark side only after distancing from Murdock, Charlie Cox said that,
The driving force behind everything this season is this idea that this man must be stopped once and for all, even if it costs me my everlasting soul.
But with Daredevil season 3, Kingpin will be all set to return. After Kingpin decides to give information on his beloved Vanessa who is wanted by the federal government, Fisk makes his way out of prison. And that calls for a fight between him and Matt Murdock. But his close friends Foggy played by Elden Henson and Karen played by Deborah Ann Woll will be joining too.
What the Cast and Crew Says
Charlie Cox claimed that just the mention of the Marvel villain Kingpin is frightening and sinister. And that this character created by Vincent has become very iconic. Moreover, he said having him back in Daredevil season 3 was absolutely thrilling. Probably because Cox’s character enjoys great rivalry with Kingpin.
The show runner for Daredevil- Erik Oleson is impressed by the phenomenally talented Vincent. And now that this Marvel villain will take up the screens in season 3, he is pretty excited. He said that season 1 featured his downfall and now Daredevil season 3 will see the return of Kingpin.
It’s hard to deny that we are not excited to watch this one!
