Every Marvel fan should take rumors with a grain of salt, but it’s thrilling to hear whispers that The Man Without Fear is returning to Marvel’s New York significantly.
With Vincent D’Onofrio reprising his role of ruthless Wilson Fisk/Kingpin for Hawkeye, it’s clear that his beloved villain will have a severe effect on Echo and more upcoming series, such as rumored seasons from Daredevil, The Punisher, and Jessica Jones.
Charlie Cox’s role in Echo will heavily feature attorney Matt Murdock, as many presume that Daredevil’s official return will occur in a future season of Daredevil.
