Actor Vincent D’Onofrio dicusses his role as evil, New York City crime boss, Wilson Fisk a.k.a. The Kingpin in Marvel’s live-action Daredevilseries, premiering on Netflix April 10.“…there’s so much that you guys don’t know…”

Vincent D’Onofrio is incredibly excited about bringing Kingpin to life in the live-action Daredevil collaboration between Marvel and Netflix.  In an new interview with Uproxx, D’Onofrio says fans have no clue what’s in store.  “I tweeted out the other day that I watch these trailers and they make me so proud of all the work that we did. But, at the same time, there’s so much that you guys don’t know what you’re going to get. There’s so much in our show. And there’s so much they’re not giving away. I mean, it gets so intense and so emotional. It’s really quite something. It goes to places you would never think it goes because of what Jeph Loeb and Steven DeKnight wanted to do. It really does.”

D’Onofrio goes on to add that he’s isn’t quite sure yet if Wilson Fisk will be turning up in AKA Jessica Jones or Luke Cage as Marvel tends to play things close to the chest. In comparing making a Marvel Netflix series versus a Marvel superhero film, D’Onofrio focused on the fact that Daredevil will essentially be a 13-hour movie, as all episodes will be available to binge watch on April 10. “Under the umbrella of Netflix, they’re very supportive, and it’s not like doing a TV series at all. It’s like doing a 13-hour film. So, I think that lends itself to being able to be much more specific and take your time in telling this long story. Now, having said that, they at the same time have to deliver a superhero aspect – a Marvel aspect to it – which, as we all know, is so dynamic and cool. So, that was the trick, to deliver the dynamic kind of Marvel superhero show and, at the same time, make it a serial that’s interesting and emotional and a real story.”

It’s time to let the devil out. Marvel’s Daredevil is here to clean up the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Lawyer by day, street-level hero by night, Matt Murdock is on a mission to make his city a better place against an underground terror within the city. All episodes arrive only on Netflix, April 10.
