If you have watched the first two episodes of Hawkeye, you probably wondered if Wilson Fisk will make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series. After all, it has already been confirmed that Maya Lopez is the leader of the Tracksuit Mafia, and she has major ties to the character. Not surprisingly, leaked images of Kingpin have made their way into social media and they pretty much confirm that is in the show. Now Vincent D'onofrio has seen those photos and he has an awesome reaction to his likeness.

The leaked pictures seem to feature D'onofrio in a fat suit to make his Kingpin look more like the comic book version of the character. Since the images were shared on Twitter, a fan decided to ask the Daredevil actor if the photos are legit. Interestingly, D'onofrio had a vague response.

"Well it's a really bad job from someone trying to make it look like me. This guy in the pic is more handsome I think," D'onofrio wrote.

Well, it does look photoshopped so we can't blame D'onofrio for poking fun at the photo. On the other hand, fans are convinced that his jokes were a weak denial of his involvement in Hawkeye.

For now, it has not yet been confirmed that D'onofrio will reprise his role as Kingpin in Hawkeye. Nevertheless, fans are expecting the Daredevil villain to make an appearance in the MCU series in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.


Hawkeye isn't the only new show that Kingpin might appear in. It is also believed that D'onofrio's character could play a major role in the spin-off series Echo which will focus on Maya Lopez. However, this has not yet been confirmed so it's best to take this with a grain of salt.

The next episode of Hawkeye will air on Disney+ on December 1, 2021.
