You can check out the selfie D’Onofrio posted via Instagram below:
D’Onofrio accompanied the gym selfie with the following caption:
63 in 12 days but who’s counting. #NoFearNoGreedNoEnvy
The actor was going to be turning 63 in 12 days and he’s looking like he’s in perfect shape to play the Kingpin again.
We last saw D’Onofrio as the Kingpin in the Disney Plus series Hawkeye.
Towards the end of that series, it did look like Echo might have killed Kingpin.
However, it seems as though they might be taking inspiration from a pretty well-known comic book run.
In that run, Echo shoots Kingpin in the eyes and blinded him, however, it didn’t kill him.
Vincent D’Onofrio is getting ready to return as the MCU’s Kingpin
This happened in Daredevil #10 which was David Mack’s arc, with the art team of Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti.
It was a really interesting arc and it ended up carrying on after that and it went to some very dark places.
In the arc that followed, Kingpin managed somehow to restore his sight and ended up fighting Daredevil.
I wonder whether they might be looking to adapt this storyline for the upcoming Daredevil and Echo shows which are coming to Disney Plus.
