Daredevil is one of the most interesting Marvel shows in recent history. The reason for that is because unlike other shows the show runners spend a fair amount of time with acquainting the audience with the character. Not only does it spend time on the heroes but also makes the audience witness why villains are the way they are. Fans who have followed the show, know who the King Pin was. Well we have some good news for all of you. He is coming back in Daredevil Season 3
Vincent D’Onofiro’s Kingpin is said to play an integral role in the upcoming Daredevil season 3. Kingpin at the end of season 1 was confined to prison. In season 2 we saw him as the Alpha in prison who runs the show. Hence it stands to reason that in Daredevil Season 3 he is going to be running the show after breaking out of prison.
The latest season of Daredevil will focus on the evolution of King Pin. In a recent interview with the Collider here’s what D’Onofiro had to say about his role and Erik Oleson the show runner for Daredevil.
“It’s hard to top the first season, with Steven DeKnight’s writing, but Erik Oleson (the new showrunner) is a very good writer. I’ve shot some pretty cool scenes, so far. It’s different, but it’s very Fisk. It’s still very emotional. The character is evolving. His whole deal is based on emotion, so we’re taking him down that role further.” He further added that “There are new focuses and new goals. That’s all I can say. If it was up to me, I would go on and on and on about it because it’s so interesting, but it’s so important to them, for us to keep our mouths shut.”
Erik Oleson is expected to incorporate elements of the Born Again story line from the comics. The story line is considered one of the best story lines out there for Daredevil and if done correctly can prove to reap dividends and could possibly be the catalyst for the evolution of Daredevil as a critically acclaimed series.
