Prison sentences in the Marvel universe last an awful long time. Even if you are the former head of a powerful mafia group played by Vincent D’Onofio.
The actor, best known for his Emmy-nominated role in Homicide: Life on the Street, was part of the first season cast of Netflix’s Daredevil, taking on Wilson Fisk’s Kingpin character. The last we saw of him was the end of that show’s first season where he was shown his cell.
And he hasn’t popped back up since. Nor will he, according to ScreenCrush.
D’Onofrio took to Twitter this week to disappoint fans not just in Kingpin’s absence from the upcoming The Defenders series, but also in the The Punisher spin-off that will star Jon Bernthal.
