Vincent D'Onofrio's performance as Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, in Marvel's Daredevil was brilliant. The Kingpin showed up in Season 2 but he didn't make a huge impact to the story; however, it was hinted that he will have more to settle with Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, and it looks like D'Onofrio already knows when his character will return. During an interview with Latino Review, he teased Kingpin's return in a future Marvel show.

D'Onofrio mentioned that he isn't signed to a multi-season contract like some other actors and teased when Kingpin will return:

"Marvel, the company, and especially Jeff Loeb, who runs Marvel Television, he's a clever dude. All those people over there are pretty clever and they love talent. There's no giant commitment for me at Daredevil. Like I didn't have to sign my life away at all. When Jeff tells me there's something coming up and if I'm available, I'll be there. And because it's written so well, I'm going to show up. I'm going to do everything I can because the writing is so good. And then there's a company like Netflix and they're not pressuring you either. They just want good material, good content. They give you money to make good content, so they're not pressuring actors to sign their life away either.... I think that there's this common ground where they say, 'Look, if the material is good are you going to show up?' and I said, 'Definitely'.

That I can't answer. I do know, but I can't answer... so take that how you will. Jeff and Charlie (Cox) and Netflix love Kingpin, and so, Kingpin is good for Marvel's television stuff and I think they agree."

I could picture Kingpin making a comeback in The Defenders, which premieres on Netflix next year, but who knows? He might end up returning in Luke Cage, which will premiere on Netflix on September 30.
