Daredevil may not be returning to Netflix anytime soon, but new details have emerged about the third season. Vincent D’Onofrio is back as Wilson Fisk, better known as The Kingpin. The news was teased on the actor’s Twitter account and has been confirmed by Deadline.
The Kingpin’s story in Daredevil was a major component of the first season and part of the reason why it was so well received. D’Onofrio is great in the role and it’s good to hear he will be returning in some capacity. If season three takes inspiration from the “Born Again” comic story arc teased at the end of The Defenders, Kingpin will play a crucial role.
Also revealed was the change in showrunner’s for the third season, making it three seasons in a row. Erik Oleson will be the new showrunner, replacing the previous duo of Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez. Steven S. DeKnight was the showrunner for season one. Erik Oleson is no stranger to the comic book world, having previously served as co-EP on the CW’s Arrow.
