Hawkeye's season 1 finale saw not only the introduction of new major playersin the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also the return of a fan favorite: Vincent D'Onofrio's portrayal of Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin.
The legendary comic big bad first made his on-screen debut back in the Daredevil series -- part of Marvel's Netflix originals that also includedThe Punisher, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. And fans were just as delighted to see him return onscreen as D'onofrio was to don the character's white suit and cane once again.
"I just love the character, Wilson Fisk," the actor raved to ET in a recent Zoom interview."I think he's a very complicated dude."
D'onofrio doesn't have official Marvel confirmation as to Fisk's fate during "The Blip" -- the five-year period that followed Thanos' genocidal finger snap, which occurred between the timelines of his Daredevil introduction and Hawkeye return-- but one thing he can confirm is that the mob boss'"kingdom came crashing down a bit" in the aftermath.
"And so, over the years, he's been trying to build things back up again," he added."When we meet him in Hawkeye, he wants his city back."
That pursuit finds the Kingpin entangled with two new MCU heroes, Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop and newcomer Alaqua Cox, who plays Maya Lopez.
"They're very impressive," D'onofrio said of the young actresses who both have intense face offs with Fisk in the season finale."They're these young talented people and so different and so unique, but they both have the same kind of work ethic...Their presence on set is definitely strong, and they are just a pleasure to knock the ball back and forth with when the cameras roll. So that's like, a perfect day for me."
