The MCU’s new Hawkeye spinoff show starring Echo may bring back Daredevil’s Kingpin. This is how Vincent D’Onofrio could return as Wilson Fisk.
Marvel’s new Hawkeye Echo spin-off show can bring you back RecklessKingpin. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has largely ignored everything Marvel TV did between 2013 and 2020 despite fans asking Agents of protection and Netflix characters Defenders shows to cross. This was disappointing to viewers as the shows continued, but many are now seeing what might have been when Marvel Studios’ Disney + shows plugged directly into the MCU. These shows don’t just star people from the movies, they repeatedly attract other movie characters.
There is a chance that this will change soon. Spider-Man: No Way Home Rumor has it that he features Charlie Cox as Daredevil again. It is not known if it will be the same version seen in all three seasons of RecklessBut Marvel Studios seems to be using a great cast choice and keeping it in the MCU in one way or another. Aside from Cox’s return as Daredevil in a proper MCU project, there has long been hope that Vincent D’Onofrio will once again play Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. Marvel Studios hasn’t announced any plans to bring it back, but that may change with the next Hawkeye spinoff show.

Marvel Studios is in the early stages of development of a Disney + show for Maya Lopez, also known as Echo. The character will make his MCU debut in Hawkeye, which will now set up the Echo story to be explored in greater detail. Maya Lopez is a deaf Native American hero whose story is directly related to the Kingpin in the comics. His origin story is linked to the death of his father, who will appear in Hawkeye somehow. The comics saw the Kingpin raise Maya as his own daughter and train her to become a deadly assassin. When he was older, the Kingpin told Maya that Daredevil was responsible for his father’s death. After Daredevil explained the truth and revealed Fisk’s deception, Maya temporarily blinded the Kingpin and was no longer working for him.
Unless the MCU decides to change Echo’s story to remove a connection to the Kingpin, it will need to appear on its Marvel Disney + show. There is no indication that Kingpin will appear in Hawkeye, so the Echo intro might be more of an origin story for her. If your father dies at some point Hawkeye, the spinoff series could be where the Kingpin’s involvement in his death is revealed. This would allow the Echo-led series to showcase her training to hunt down her father’s supposed assassin and become the Kingpin’s adopted daughter before the truth is revealed.
While Marvel might be hiring a new actor to play Wilson Fisk in the MCU, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin was one of the brightest spots for Marvel TV content. Marvel Studios would be smart to capitalize on this casting and bring D’Onofrio back for the Hawkeye derived series. This could play out in the same way as Charlie Cox’s rumored Daredevil return, with D’Onofrio potentially playing a slightly different version of the character, so the MCU doesn’t have to worry about Netflix continuity. If this happens, and depending on how faithful Marvel is to the comics, there is a possibility that the Hawkeye derived series could be a Reckless reunion and include both Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin.
