Daredevil and Kingpin’s next MCU appearances have been revealed, as Echo’s costume designer lists Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio as cast members.
Daredevil and Kingpin’s next appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have seemingly been revealed, as Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio are now linked to Marvel’s Echo Disney+ show. After starring in three seasons of Daredevil on Netflix, audiences thought that was the last time Cox and D’Onofrio would play their respective Marvel characters. Both of their fortunes changed in a major way in 2021 though. Charlie Cox returned as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, while Vince D’Onofrio played Wilson Fisk in Hawkeye. Now that Marvel Studios brought them back, there is great interest in seeing them both even more.
Marvel Studios has yet to confirm where Daredevil and Kingpin will appear next, but that hasn’t stopped rumors from circulating. Both have been speculated to be in Tom Holland’s next Spider-Man trilogy, while Daredevil is also rumored to appear in She-Hulk. Reports have even circulated that Marvel Studios is developing a new Daredevil reboot series for Disney+ starring Charlie Cox. This project has been expected to reunite Daredevil and Kingpin, but now it appears that they could meet up again in Echo first.
Starring Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, Marvel Studios confirmed plans for Echo in late 2021 following her introduction in Hawkeye. Due to Daredevil and Kingpin’s connections to Echo in the comics, there has been speculation that both characters will be in the upcoming Disney+ show. Now, costume designer Stacy Caballero has seemingly confirmed that Echo will be where Daredevil and Kingpin make their MCU returns. Caballero’s updated resume reveals that she is making costumes for Alaqua Cox, Charlie Cox, and Vincent D’Onofrio for Echo. While their returns aren’t confirmed by Marvel Studios, this is the best evidence yet that Daredevil and Kingpin are in the series.
The MCU has already set up Kingpin’s role in Echo, as the Hawkeye season 1 finale ended with Maya shooting Fisk. This was because she learned that Fisk played a part in killing her father. While this left some audiences confused about whether Marvel killed Kingpin, the comics saw a similar confrontation end with Maya blinding him. In any case, due to the history between Maya and Fisk established in Hawkeye, it made sense that he’d return for her spinoff show. Daredevil’s role in Echo has not been set up in a similar fashion, but the return of Kingpin could be what brings Matt Murdock into action.
Daredevil and Kingpin’s MCU appearances in Echo might not be too surprising, but it is reassuring to see this evidence to back up the popular belief. It will help generate even more excitement for Echo’s spinoff show and could mean official confirmation from Marvel Studios will arrive soon. In any case, Echo is now the latest MCU project set to use Daredevil and Kingpin and another sign that they’ll be important characters in Phase 4 and beyond.
