We’re just a few weeks away from the third season of Netflix’s Daredevil returning on October 19th, and the latest teaser is putting the spotlight back on the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen’s greatest foe (and the greatest part of the show): Vincent D’Onofrio’s William Fisk, aka Kingpin.
Fisk was the antagonist in the first season of the show, and he’s a high water mark that the rest of the Marvel Netflix series have tried to meet in the years since, to varying degrees of success. But after being sidelined in prison for most of season 2, it looks like Fisk is getting out of jail, into his iconic white suit, and he’s ready for some good old-fashioned revenge.
D’Onofrio’s take on Fisk remains a highlight of the Netflix show, offering a compelling version of the character whose magnetic personality often overshadowed the show’s ostensible protagonist. In other words: it’s a very good thing that he’s back.
