Vincent D’Onofrio will play King Pin in Hawkeye.
Rumors are circling the new Hawkeye series coming to Disney Plus, as well as Spiderman: No Way Home. King Pin, portrayed by Vincent D’Onofrio, is said to be making an appearance in episode five from the Movie Leaks Twitter page.
Rumor or not, let’s talk about Vincent D’Onofrio playing King Pin. I will completely admit right away, that I am biased when it comes to King Pin. I truly believe that Vincent is one of the best, if not the best, pick for the role of Kingpin. His portrayal of the big baddie in the Netflix TV series ‘DareDevil’ was enthralling to the very end. King Pin is just one of many roles that Vincent D’Onofrio has taken to another level with his dedicated and in-depth acting.
Now there is no solid evidence that Vincent will be reprising his role as King Pin in the upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye, but the simple fact he liked the tweet from ‘Big Screen Leaks’ verified Twitter account. The next morning (July 23rd) Vincent went in and un-liked the tweet. The real question here isn’t whether or not Vincent D’Onofrio is returning to the Marvel-verse, no-no. We know his acting alone with his credibility would be able to land him a spot as any character that he would choose.
There are many options for Vincent to return to the Marvel-verse, so King Pin isn’t the be-all-end-all for this actor. But it is one of the roles that he has taken to a level that no actor, that I can see, could make an improvement on the character so far.
So here’s looking forward to seeing the Marvel-verse expand even more so through their Disney+ television series.
(Just bring my King Pin back!!!)
