With filming on the third season of Marvel’s Daredevil now underway, actor Vincent D’Onofrio has been chatting to Collider about returning as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in the hit Netflix series.
“It’s hard to top the first season, with Steven DeKnight’s writing, but Erik Oleson [the new showrunner] is a very good writer,” said D’Onofrio. “I’ve shot some pretty cool scenes, so far. It’s different, but it’s very Fisk. It’s still very emotional. The character is evolving. His whole deal is based on emotion, so we’re taking him down that role further.”
“I can only say that we’re doing things that are just going to blow the fans away,” he continued, when asked if he could reveal anything about the new season. “We’ve already shot some things that are just going to be neat for the fans. There’s some awesome things that are very much in the history of Fisk and Daredevil, that people have been waiting for. We’ve already put some of that stuff in the can, and there’s a lot more to do. I think they’re gonna be very happy.”
As yet, there’s no word on a premiere date for season three of Daredevil, but it is expected to hit Netflix towards the end of 2018.
