With Netflix set to debut ‘Daredevil’ Season 3 before this year is over, it is only a matter of time before we are back in Hell’s Kitchen watching Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk going at it once more, only this time the Kingpin will most likely be out of prison and back in the prime of his powers, which could prove troublesome for our hero. Recently, star Vincent D’Onofrio has spoken about the return of Kingpin to the spotlight in the new season of ‘Daredevil’ and thoughts about the character, most notably with an insightful Tweet about Fisk’s motivations, which you can check out below:
The thing about FISK.
He is in a constant state of emergency when he is not near Venessa. When he can not reach out to her, touch her. He is a walking talking monument of power. Emotional rage leans into him. Pressing against him always. He is the great white whale of NEw York pic.twitter.com/gcMvL4oOMX

Also, During a recent interview with Collider, D’Onofrio has shared more excitement for his character this season, stating:
“It’s hard to top the first season, with Steven DeKnight’s writing, but Erik Oleson is a very good writer. 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. There are new focuses and new goals. That’s all I can say. If it was up to me, I would go on and on and on about it because it’s so interesting, but it’s so important to them for us to keep our mouths shut.”
I know I am excited to see D’Onofrio’s Fisk return as the main villain in ‘Daredevil’ Season 3, as he was one of my favorite parts of Season 1, and I love D’Onofrio’s take on the character. And to hear him praise the writing is especially exciting, as I was not the biggest fan of the showrunner or writer for Season 2 of ‘Daredevil.’ I am really hoping this season is a return to form for the flagship Marvel series on Netflix.
Here’s hoping that D’Onofrio is not just hyping it all up for nothing, and the show really does bring its A-Game when it returns later this year.
