Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Hawkeye.

Finally, Hawkeye has revealed the ‘big bad’ of the series, and it’s exactly who many anticipated. Wilson Fisk has made a return to the MCU and is being played by none other than Vincent D’Onofrio, the same actor who has played the character in three seasons of Daredevil on Netflix. But with Kingpin’s introduction, what does it mean for MCU’s future?

Marvel Studios Is Set To Being Characters From Marvel Television

Kingpin has returned to the MCU

This clearly shows that Marvel Studios is quite serious about expanding the street-level side of the shared cinematic universe. Now, with Kingpin in the mix, the doors are now open for the introduction or return of other characters. Yes, we are talking about a return of Daredevil, which will feature both, Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and his supporting cast, and other street-level villains. Characters like Tombstone, Maggia, Madame Masque and Hammerhead can all appear in the MCU now.

Outside the plot, this proves how seriously Marvel Studios takes its fans. Ever since Daredevil’s cancellation in 2018, the #SaveDaredevil movement has been quite dominant across various social media platforms. Keeping that in mind, Marvel Studios has welcomed back Vincent D’Onofrio, one of the more popular villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with open arms. Now that fans have seen that Marvel can officially welcome back someone from Marvel TV, it’s quite possible that the same things can happen again too.

Matt Murdock Might Appear In No Way Home


Many fans are assuming that Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock will feature in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, and this will only be the beginning. Marvel Studios has an enhanced focus on Disney+ right now and nothing is stopping them from reviving an old show like Cloak and Dagger, where characters are both, street level and skewed to young audiences.

Kingpin’s return is just the tip of the iceberg and Marvel can take it anywhere from here.

Hawkeye is streaming on Disney+ now.
