Kingpin Steps into the Spotlight in New ‘Daredevil’ Trailer

Marvel has released a second trailer for their Netflix series, Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, but the new footage gives us our first good look at Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, played by Vincent D’Onofrio.

With one month left before the entire first season drops on the streaming service, the second trailer pulls back the curtain revealing Marvel’s grittiest take on superheroes yet.

The trailer highlights Fisk’s reasoning behind wanting to clean up the city, as conflicting as his reasoning may be. “When I was a kid, I used to dream what it would be like to live somewhere far away from Hell’s Kitchen. But I realized the city was a part of me. It was in my blood and I would do anything to make it a better place.” I’m guessing anything includes lots of violence.

In “Marvel’s Daredevil,” Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights for justice in the courtroom with the help of his law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson). At night, Murdock watches over the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, New York as the masked vigilante Daredevil to dispense a more physical brand of justice! Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) also has plans for Hell’s Kitchen, but prefers more malicious methods.

The series stars Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock / Daredevil), Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Vondie Curtis Hall (Ben Ulrich), Scott Glenn (Stick), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Marianna), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsey), and Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley).

Marvel’s Daredevil is the first of four Netflix series. Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Iron Fist, and Marvel’s Luke Cage, will follow Daredevil and culminate in a Marvel’s The Defenders team-up series.

Marvel’s Daredevil will be available on April 10, 2015 at 12:01 AM PT in all territories where Netflix is available. The series will be available to stream in 4K.
