In the final moments of Hawkeye, we saw Kingpin being held at gunpoint by his adopted daughter, Maya Lopez. However, the camera flips when there is a gunshot fired and we do not really see if Kingpin is dead or not.
But clearly, it has been implied that Wilson Fisk was shot but since there was no body that fans could see, it is a mystery. Every comic fan knows that a character cannot be dead just like that. Vincent D’Onofrio who plays Kingpin, will not convince fans so easily that his character is no more.
Especially when it is known that Marvel is developing its own Daredevil series, it is likely that Kingpin will be back. There is also a rumor circulating that if the character is brought back, it will be in Marvel’s recent “Mayor Fisk” storyline.
As per The Weekly Planet podcast, Kingpin will be present in Echo, another series dedicated to Maya Lopez. The podcast host shares, “Yep, Daredevil is in it for three episodes, as in Charlie Cox. Kingpin, Vinnie D’Onofrio is in four.”
They further add that the Kingpin storyline will build up to him running to be the Mayor of New York City. As per the host, Kingpin will be seen in an eye patch; after being shot by Maya in the head in Hawkeye. And as for Daredevil, he will be in a red and black suit, looking for Jessica Jones.
Fisk had launched a campaign in the closing scenes for Daredevil. Because of his villainous actions and his deep pockets in the Marvel universe; he is somehow elected as the mayor of New York. The character was in the position for four years until the events of Devil’s Reign.
However, Marvel Studios has not confirmed either Fisk or Daredevil’s appearance in the series. The filming is ongoing and is expected to be so throughout October before its release next year.
Echo will premiere on Disney+ in 2023.
