Vincent D'Onofrio Cast as Wilson Fisk in Netflix Daredevil Series


Marvel Studios announced today that it has cast Vincent D'Onofrio, of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Full Metal Jacket and Men in Black fame as Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, in the 2015 13-episode Netflix Daredevil series. D'Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced in the series’ lead role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. I personally like D'Onofrio and have higher hopes for the Netflix series in the fact they are getting some A list actors in them. Just because it's not on a major network or the big screen, doesn't mean Marvel is't going to show it the same love. You can read the full press release below.


Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that acclaimed actor Vincent D'Onofrio has joined “Marvel’s Daredevil,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Best known for his critically-lauded work in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Men in Black, “Full Metal Jacket” and “Homicide,”  D’Onofrio will play Wilson Fisk, a powerful businessman whose interests in the future of Hell’s Kitchen will bring him into conflict with the blind attorney Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil.

D’Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced as Matt Murdock, in the exciting cast of “Marvel’s Daredevil.”

“We’re incredibly proud to have an actor with the gravitas and versatility of Vincent joining 'Marvel’s Daredevil' in such an integral role,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “Wilson Fisk is an iconic villain whose cunning and power make him the dangerous equal of our hero."

“Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus”, “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”) and Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods," "Lost," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," in addition to writing the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Daredevil”), along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”).

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
