Vincent D'Onofrio's imposing frame has meant that he's been cast as a variety of villainous characters over the years, and next Fall we'll see him as the ultimate comic book tough guy; Daredevil's Wilson Fisk/the Kingpin. We've already got a glimpse of how the actor will look in the role ( there's another above) in his ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" video, but what about how he'll approach playing the lager-than-life crime boss? here are some excerpts from his interview with Screen Crush.

On his experience filming the show so far:
"I gotta tell you, I couldn’t be working for nicer people. I really am. I’m just having a great time. The whole — the way that we’re shooting it, our Daredevil, everybody that’s in the show, is just going so well. Tonight we have a big fight scene that’s happening. It’s the first time you see my character do something physical."

On a potential crossover with the MCU:
"Well, I think they have some kind of plan. I’m not really allowed to discuss what the plan is, but they have a plan. I think the beginning of the plan is series stuff with Netflix, and then they have a bigger plan to branch out, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you specifically what that is."

On what we can expect from his take on this character:
"I think – it’s not just me, by the way, it’s the writer. It’s Stephen DeKnight, it’s Jeph Loeb at Marvel, it’s the scripts, and it’s me. I think it’s gonna be the … I hope — I should say – I hope it’s gonna be the new way to look at Wilson Fisk. I think that there will be no other Wilson Fisk but this one after we’re all done with it. That’s what we’re hoping for."

D'Onofrio also talks about the unanimously positive reaction to his casting, Marvel's plans for The Defenders, and much more - so be sure to click on the link below to check out the interview in full.

If any one here is going to be over by the set tonight, and doesn't get any pictures or video, I will come at you like a coked up monkey!
DaVinci31 - 8/20/2014, 2:53 PM
Good for you, D'Onofro.
Batmaniac - 8/20/2014, 2:54 PM
I hope they stay true to the comics.
Kingpin is badass!
yossarian - 8/20/2014, 2:54 PM
This shit better be good.
DeusExSponge - 8/20/2014, 2:55 PM
I can't wait for this to release on Netflix! Bring on Dare Devil and Kingpin!
sKeemAn - 8/20/2014, 2:55 PM
This guy is a great actor he is going to own Fisk.
sKeemAn - 8/20/2014, 2:56 PM
I want to know how Marvel will "branch out" there Netflix franchises.
sKeemAn - 8/20/2014, 2:57 PM
Still no pics on the DD suit. Marvel is really holding out on this one.
TheManFromMars - 8/20/2014, 3:00 PM
Is the whole series going to be released in one go or are they going to released one episode at time?

Batmaniac - 8/20/2014, 3:04 PM
I hope Rosario Dawson is playing Elektra.
DrKinsolving - 8/20/2014, 3:05 PM
@JoJo1982

It could also mean that they could bring some of the characters into the big screen MCU, I think I heard Feige say that the netflix series is connected to the MCU too
Bekss - 8/20/2014, 3:05 PM
TheManFromMars

All at once
TheManFromMars - 8/20/2014, 3:06 PM
^Thanks!
MexicanSuperman - 8/20/2014, 3:06 PM
I just watched Full Metal Jacket the other day for the first time and it was awesome, especially D'Onofro scenes.
MrDeadRabbit - 8/20/2014, 3:09 PM
In Marvel Studios everything is connected.

DC should take some notes on how to make a succesful interconnected Universe
Darthzilla - 8/20/2014, 3:09 PM
Did..did.....did he say Jeph Loeb?

Netflix shows confirmed for shit
Reasonnnn - 8/20/2014, 3:10 PM
@MexicanSuperman congrats man! What a classic :)
ckal - 8/20/2014, 3:11 PM
They have 12% of a plan
KrazyForKomix - 8/20/2014, 3:11 PM
One of the biggest mistakes in TV history was USA's treatment of Criminal Intent. NBC's childlike cable network fiddled and tweaked that show so much – in order to try and make it fit into their lite-n-breezy template – that they drove fans away. D'Onofrio's Robert Goren was THE most interesting Holmesian detective since Columbo.
I'm VERY happy he's back and cast as Fisk.
JoJo1982 - 8/20/2014, 3:12 PM
@drkinsolving


Yeah they all are part of the MCU
They all prolly will have some involvment with the "BIG event" against Thanos
Bl00dwerK - 8/20/2014, 3:12 PM
Guess I'll be downloading it...
MrCBM56 - 8/20/2014, 3:13 PM
@sjoerdo0 what is that?
MrDeadRabbit - 8/20/2014, 3:13 PM
I would love to see a crossover of Dardevil / Captain America

Just like in Born Again... that would be so dope

Dammit Loeb!
Batmaniac - 8/20/2014, 3:17 PM
As long as the show is heavily inspired by Miller's run, and Elektra & Bullseye are in the show, I'll be happy. It would be cool if The Hand was in the show too, so we could see Daredevil take on some ninjas.
Bekss - 8/20/2014, 3:18 PM
Are there any other characters you can tease or point out from the comics?

No, not specifically. I can’t talk about anything. I can just say that they’re gonna go all the way. They’re gonna go super cool — like, super, super cool.

TheManFromMars - 8/20/2014, 3:18 PM
^Iceman confirmed.
MrDeadRabbit - 8/20/2014, 3:18 PM
I think that would be a draw between Cap and DD, just initially and then DD would have to play dirty in order to be able to catch up with Cap Stamina
Ruhail - 8/20/2014, 3:18 PM
Can't [frick]ing wait for this hopefully it'll end the trend of Arrow being considered a perfect/the best Comic show.
