Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin was one of the biggest villains in the small-screen MCU. As Charlie Cox & Jon Bernthal will both be playing the former roles of Daredevil and The Punisher respectively in the MCU, D’Onofrio wants to take on The Punisher and Spider-Man.

The Hawkeye actor spoke with TVLine in an interview, and talked about what does he see Kingpin do in the future. He said that he would definitely like to face Spider-Man or The Punisher.

D’Onofrio talked about how the Kingpin rivaled the likes of The Punisher, Daredevil and Spider-Man. He said that if the MCU takes on the same approach with his character, it would be cool for him to see that.

In the comic runs, it was Punisher, Spider-Man and Daredevil. That would be cool

Kingpin started off as a villain against Spider-Man, though he’s mainly known as the arch-nemesis of Daredevil. He was the main villain in both Daredevil season 1 & season 3. However, The Punisher only crossed paths with Kingpin only once while the villain was in prison.

Charlie Cox appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, while Vincent D’Onofrio re-enacted his role as Kingpin in Hawkeye. With the MCU finally using the characters from its Netflix universe properly, there are a lot more new possibilities.
